Boomtime Back Two days after calling manager Scott Servais and sternly telling him that he is ready for All Systems Boom, Nelson Cruz returns to the lineup tonight. The #Mariners have activated DH Nelson Cruz (@ncboomstick23) from the 10-day DL. Team has optioned RHP Casey Lawrence to AAA Tacoma.

In two outings so far this season, both multi-inning outings in losing team efforts, Lawrence has looked good...

Happy Weekend! Hi everyone! I’m going skiing today, which is fun because it will be my first spring skiing experience. That said, it was about 45 degrees and raining last night when we got to the cabin I’m at. That is not particularly encouraging for the snow conditions. While I’m skiing in the rain, you should enjoy these links. In Mariners News... Shohei Ohtani’s hot start to his rookie season is comparable to Taylor Motter. #Angels Shohei Ohtani and #Mariners Taylor Motter at a similar point during his rookie year: Motter Ohtani PA 23 24H 7 82B...

A Little ‘Stitious—Mariners vs. Athletics Series Preview

The Mariners start a three-game series against the Athletics The Mariners return home for a seven-game homestand and their first intradivisional games of the season. At 6-4, they’ve matched their best 10-game start to a season since 2009. Winning four of seven on the road trip was significant since the team is operating at around 75% of its full strength. Nelson Cruz, Mike Zunino, and Ben Gamel should all return from their various injuries sometime during this homestand, which will provide a huge boost to the team. The Mariners finally match up against their first AL West opponent...

Ryon Healy to Disabled List; Chasen Bradford Recalled

Is there a “Mariner First Baseman” designation in the “injury” field when you put someone on the DL? This was all-but-announced by our top-flight beat writers yesterday, but now it’s official: As expected, Mariners have placed Ryon Healy on 10-day DL, called up reliever Chasen Bradford.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) April 9, 2018 Healy joins Nelson Cruz in the “oh come on” category of the Mariner disabled list. Unlike Nelson, the club did not immediately issue a set of “we think this isn’t that bad” quotes, presumably while they wait a bit longer (since...

Getting your Wednesday started off right. Good morning folks! Yesterday was a pretty interesting day around baseball. Even though it was the middle of the week, a lot of stuff went down. Let’s get to it. In Mariners news... In case you missed it, Nelson Cruz officially hit the DL. The Mariners have recalled INF/OF Taylor Motter from AAA Tacoma and placed DH Nelson Cruz on the 10-Day disabled list (retroactive to April 1) with a sprained right ankle.— Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) April 3, 2018 Jay Yencich at U.S.S.

Nelson Cruz to DL with ankle sprain; Taylor Motter recalled

Cruz to DL, our long-haired regional pesadilla returns Today the Mariners announced Nelson Cruz will go to the 10-day DL with a sprained ankle, retroactive to 4/1. It’s a not-unexpected move after Scott Servais basically said as much yesterday, without actually saying it, because he is Midwest Dad. With two games in a National League park, Cruz figured to not be getting much playing time anyway, plus there are two off-days in the stretch, meaning the Mariners will really only miss Cruz for the Twins series and part of the Royals series. It’s a blow to not have him in the lineup against...

The one where Mitch hits cleanup and Vogelbach gets a well-deserved start Welcome to another edition of Weekend Afternoon Baseball™! Today is April Fool’s Day, so please make as many weak Mike Leake puns as your heart desires. It’s the only day they’ll be at least semi-tolerated. Today is equal parts exciting and kind of a bummer. In the bummer department: no Nelson Cruz, Mike Zunino, and still no Ben Gamel. We weren’t really expecting Ichiro and David Freitas to get meaningful run going into the season. In the exciting department: Daniel Vogelbach is starting! Congratulations on...
