Smith brings solid, steady approach to Mariners’ lineup

PEORIA, Ariz. — The adjectives characterizing Mariners right fielder Seth Smith are, pretty much, uniformly positive for all their monotonous similarity. Steady. Solid. Professional. Reliable. Etc. All wrapped in the veteran package of a player who has seen postseason in half of his eight big-league seasons. In short, Smith, at 32 and under club control through 2017, is precisely the sort of player the Mariners sought in the off-season as a complementary lineup addition after signing free-agent home-run champ Nelson Cruz. “He’s a grinder who can give you good ABs,” general manager...

MARINERS 3 CUBS 2 (AT PEORIA STADIUM)

THE FACTS: Did right-hander Taijuan Walker lock down the final spot in the Mariners’ rotation Wednesday night by pitching six scoreless — and dominant — innings against the Cubs?

He fatigued a little bit in the sixth, but I thought he threw the ball extremely well.” Walker gave up just two hits, both singles, while walking one and striking out six. He threw 57 of 82 pitches for strikes and extended his...
