Game 74, Tigers at Mariners

James Paxton vs. Justin Verlander, 7:10pm Now that’s a pitching match-up. Not an 88 MPH fastball in sight. This would be among the more anticipated match-ups of the year, but – there’s always a ‘but’ with this team – the recent context makes this more complicated. Instead of tuning in and getting swept up in […]

Andrew Moore Joins M’s, Takes Yovani Gallardo’s Rotation Slot

A day or two after calling up Max Povse to shore up the bullpen, the M’s just called up their top starting pitching prospect in the high minors, Andrew Moore. The Oregon State product is taking Yovani Gallardo’s spot in the rotation, per Greg Johns, which would make tomorrow’s game his MLB debut. The M’s […]

Is Andrew Moore ready?

Is Andrew Moore ready?

The polished righty has moved quickly through Seattle’s system and at just 23, stands at the threshold of making his Mariners debut. Andrew Moore was frustrated. He’d already had to wait for an hour and a half, for the rain to clear and the tarp to be rolled off the field. Then he had to wait for Kevin Plawecki to adjust his shin guard for a seeming eternity, perched impatiently on the mound, glove on his hip, foot tapping in annoyance. Now, the quick-working righty was locked in a ten-pitch battle against the Las Vegas 51’s catcher. After getting Plawecki to 0-2, Moore tried to get...

The Mariners impending starting rotation crunch

The Mariners impending starting rotation crunch

The Mariners starting rotation is getting healthier. That means some difficult decisions are on the horizon. Update: An hour after publication, the Mariners called up Andrew Moore and optioned Christian Bergman to Triple-A. John and Kate have a wonderful write up on Moore you should definitely read. Every major league team dips into their starting pitching depth at some point during the season. The current environment of the game doesn’t exactly promote pitcher longevity. In the American League, the Indians have used the fewest number of starters this year—just seven. The Mariners have...

What is an Evan White?

What is an Evan White?

Let’s all learn more about the 17th overall pick in the 2017 MLB Draft From the moment the Seattle Mariners selected Sam Carlson with the 55th overall pick, a vast amount of Seattle-based draft headlines pivoted over to the prep pitcher out of Minnesota. It was for good reason. Carlson is very young and very good and the last time the Mariners took a prep arm this high in the draft, he blossomed into one of the very top prospects in baseball. Carlson was, and is, an overwhelmingly exciting draft pick. The Mariners grabbed themselves a pitcher. Go Mariners. Often lost in the shuffle, of...

Mariners 5 Tigers, 4: Sleepless in Seattle

Mariners 5 Tigers, 4: Sleepless in Seattle

Tigers fall to Mariners in the wee hours, hope you didn’t stay up for this. A long night ended in the Detroit Tiger’s fourth straight loss as the Seattle Mariners beat the Tigers on a walkoff hit in extra innings. Always extra innings in Seattle, and it never seems to end well. Seattle Mariners starter Ariel Miranda did his best to remind the Tigers bats of their right to remain silent. They resisted at first, with Ian Kinsler hitting a lead off home run, and Justin Upton cracking a solo shot in the second inning to briefly tie the game back up. But they were eventually handcuffed for...

The Modesto Nuts’ undeniable team chemistry

The Modesto Nuts’ undeniable team chemistry

The Mariners’ High-A affiliate exudes teamwork on and off the field. With six players representing this year’s Modesto Nuts team in the California League All-Star Game’s North Division, the team places a lot of emphasis on the tight knit chemistry they’ve developed. Center fielder Braden Bishop, RHPs Reggie McClain and Nick Neidert, and infielders Logan Taylor, Chris Mariscal, and Gianfranco Wawoe made the North Division All-Star team and will be playing against the California League South Division in Visalia, Calif. on Jun. 20. “I think it was preached to us early on, through...

What to expect from Max Povse

What to expect from Max Povse

The “Tall Wall” is headed to the ‘pen in Seattle; what can we expect from him there? This past week the Mariners called up Max Povse, the 6’8” righty, from AA-Arkansas. It was a bit of a surprising move, as I didn’t even realize Povse had come off the disabled list—which he did, on the 14th of this month, in time to make one start against Springfield before being called up. He wasn’t exactly sterling in that start, either, where he loaded the bases on one hit (a bunt single) in the first inning before being lucky enough to get a sharp lineout caught by a leaping Jeff...

Game 72, Tigers at Mariners

Sam Gaviglio vs. Anibal Sanchez, 7:10pm One of the big issues that baseball’s been cogitating about has been the decline in balls in play. So many of the common complaints about baseball in the year 2017 stem from those missing plays; as strikeouts and dingers increase, games get longer, and they *feel* longer still. It […]

Ben Gamel, Good or Not-So-Good?

Full disclosure: I wrote this article just so I could look up pictures of his hair. Going into this season, most thought the Mariners’ outfield was pretty set: Jarrod Dyson in left field, Leonys Martin in center, and Mitch Haniger in right field. Meanwhile, Guillermo Heredia likely had the fourth outfielder spot sewn up, while one Benjamin Gamel would be excellent depth down in Tacoma. But then... .@Mariners OF Ben Gamel made a wall-crashing catch this afternoon, but it's the hair flip that has everyone talking: https://t.co/lpkOgTVUNt pic.twitter.com/GIZXEciu08— Cut4 (@Cut4) March...

Series Preview: Mariners (34-37) vs. Tigers (32-36)

The Mariners return home for another long homestand, beginning with a four-game series against the Tigers. *Text appearing in italics has appeared in a previous series preview. The last time these two teams met, the Mariners lost both Felix Hernandez and Mitch Haniger in the same game. They would go on to win that series in Detroit anyway but it was still a major disaster for the team. With Haniger back, Jean Segura returning sometime during this series, and Felix and Iwakuma returning later this week, the Mariners are just now getting back to full strength. Their record has been exactly...

Mariners defeat Rangers, do not force Scott Servais to turn car around

A three hour and forty-three minute road trip where the AC is broken but we had fun anyway Every unhappy family road trip is unhappy in its own way. The directions are bad; the formerly reliable car sputters and dies; someone sulks, someone cries. The sun is too hot and everywhere, the roadside attractions are sad and threadbare, and eventually someone gets ejected for arguing a hit by pitch. The Mariners have had many miserable road trips this season, with a record of 14-24 on the road, and while this one wasn’t the horrorshow of DC/Boston, it wasn’t great, either, as they end up 3-4....

Max Povse promoted to the Mariners, Rob Whalen returns to Tacoma, Dillon Overton DFA’d

Max Povse promoted to the Mariners, Rob Whalen returns to Tacoma, Dillon Overton DFA’d

The Tall Wall gets The Call. A few weeks ago RHP Max Povse went on the DL with a hamstring injury. It was revealed that Povse, one of the higher ceiling starters in the farm system, was being converted into a long relief role a la Astros not-so-secret weapon Chris Devinski. Whether this shift was temporary or permanent hasn’t been determined, but a reliever of any type can make it in the MLB more easily than a starter, and here Povse is. Povse has performed excellently at AA-Arkansas with a 3.33 FIP, but has not shown as dramatic a capacity to strike out hitters as his frame might...
