Fun on the Farm: Stefen Romero is heating up

A look at how some of the notable Mariner prospects are performing for the team's minor league affiliates. AAA Tacoma Rainiers (71-65, Pacific Coast League) In ten rehab starts with the Rainiers, Michael Saunders is batting .257 with 14 walks, 1 double and 2 runs batted in. Saunders was recalled from his rehab assignment on Saturday due to flu-like symptoms, and he will be eligible to return to Tacoma after 5 days.  This is a minor setback, but he should hopefully be joining the team sooner than later. Stefen Romero currently has a 13-game hitting streak.  During the streak, Romero has 4...

Friday's pregame notes and lineups: Mariners at Red Sox

Here's the lineup vs. right-hander Joe Kelly ... no real surprises here. People asking about Michael Saunders being out of the lineup the last few days in Tacoma. I was told by a reliable source - Mike Curto - that Saunders has a virus and was sent home by team doctors. Which could also delay his return to Seattle. We might not see him till rosters expand.   A few notes .... The Red Sox have signed free agent outfielder Rusney Castillo to a 6-year, $72.5 million contract. The Mariners were very interested in signing Castillo, but there was no way they were going for that much. It's a...

Fun on the Farm: Taijuan Walker looks a lot like Taijuan Walker

A look at how some of the notable Mariner prospects are performing for the team's minor league affiliates. AAA Tacoma Rainiers (64-61, Pacific Coast League) In five rehab starts with the Rainiers, Michael Saunders is batting .353 with 7 walks, 1 double and 2 runs batted in.  He's managed to reach base safely in 13 of his 24 plate appearances, which is pretty ridiculous.  Whenever he rejoins the team, his bat and plate discipline will really help this lineup.  If he can come back and produce the way he did before his injury, that would be a huge addition. Roenis Elias was optioned to...
