Seattle Mariners HEADLINES
SEATTLE — Former Mariners right-hander Rafael Carmona has been out of Major League Baseball for 15 years.
SEATTLE — It was the Seattle Mariners’ turn Tuesday night to pay tribute to New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter for a marvelous 20-year career that began a few hundred yards away where the old Kingdome once stood.
Jacoby Ellsbury's RBI single in the eighth helped the New York Yankees snap a three-game losing streak to the Seattle Mariners with a 3-2 victory on Tuesday.
ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. — Seattle Mariners right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma was the senpai (the mentor) to New York Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka while they were teammates for five years with the Rakuten Golden Eagles in Japan.
ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. — Heads up, Seattle Mariners fans … at least, those of you who haven’t been paying attention. This is how it looks when things are going your way.
Heads up, Mariners fans, if you havent been paying attention. This is how it looks when things are going your way. Its intoxicating stuff for however long it lasts.
Robinson Cano struck a two-run single and Seattle's pitching staff combined for a five-hit shutout in a 3-0 victory over Tampa Bay in Monday's finale of a four-game set.
Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez was named the American League Player of the Week for the second time in his career on Monday.
Felix Hernandez didnt get a victory Sunday despite a career-high 15 strikeouts over seven shutout innings, but he was selected Monday as the American Leagues player of the week for June 2-8.
ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. — Outfielder Michael Saunders expected to return to the Seattle Mariners’ lineup “in another day or so” after an examination of his sore right shoulder revealed no structural damage.
If the Seattle Mariners end up qualifying for the playoffs — and there’s no reason to believe they can’t — Sunday will be recalled as the game that defined their season.
If and when Felix Hernandez ever registers a victory at Tropicana Field, he's unlikely to pitch as well as he did Sunday in settling for a no-decision in the Mariners' 5-0 victory over Tampa Bay.
ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. — So ends the relentless speculation that designated hitter/first baseman Kendrys Morales might be heading back to the Seattle Mariners.
ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. — Seattle Mariners rookie left-hander Roenis Elias set the bar pretty high in his last start. And, no, he wasn’t that good Saturday afternoon against Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field.
Roenis Elias hurled 7 2/3 solid innings to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 7-4 victory against the Tampa Bay Rays in the second tilt of a four-game series at Tropicana Field on Saturday,
Rookie lefty Roenis Elias set the bar pretty high in his last start. And, no, he wasnt that good Saturday afternoon against Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field. Still not bad, though. Elias worked into the eighth inning in a 7-4 victory over the Rays. That will play, wont it?
The hottest-hitting Mariner over the last two weeks? Would you believe outfielder Cole Gillespie?
Former Mariners DH/first baseman Kendrys Morales has reached a agreement with the Minnesota Twins, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.
ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. — Don Zimmer’s death Wednesday at age 83 hit home a little more for Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon during the team’s open date Thursday.
The first day of the 2014 Major League Baseball first-year player draft was all about adding power, as the Seattle Mariners used their top two picks to add a pair of outfielders they hope will provide impact bats in the near future.
ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. — Want to see most any Seattle Mariners fan — and, yes, many within the organization — scrunch their face into a lemon-biting grimace?
Erik Bedard tossed six shutout innings and the Tampa Bay Rays ended their 10-game skid with a 4-0 win over the Seattle Mariners on Friday.
Erik Bedard struck out eight in six innings and the Tampa Bay Rays stopped a 10-game losing streak by beating the Seattle Mariners, 4-0, Friday night.
Don Zimmer's death on Wednesday, at age 83, hit home a little more Thursday for manager Lloyd McClendon during the Mariners' open date.
It was no surprise Thursday when Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig announced the Seattle Mariners had selected Alex Jackson with the sixth overall pick of the first-year player draft. Several mock drafts had projected Jackson — a right-handed hitter regarded to have the most power potential on the board — going to a Mariners organization on a perpetual search for offense.
Tom McNamara said he saw Alex Jackson play a few different positions while he scouted him the past few years — mostly at catcher, some in the outfield and some at third base — though Jackson is most likely to begin his professional career as a right fielder.
With the No. 6 overall pick in the 2014 first-year player draft, the Mariners selected catcher/outfielder Alex Jackson, a high-school prospect from San Diego.
Remember when the Mariners appeared overloaded with first basemen? Justin Smoak, Corey Hart and Logan Morrison? The concern throughout spring training was how to find playing time for all of them.
Wondering who the Seattle Mariners are targeting with the sixth overall pick Thursday when Major League Baseball kicks off its annual three-day first-year player draft?
The Mariners completed a two-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves with a 2-0 victory Tuesday behind a softly dominating performance by Hisashi Iwakuma, more good bullpen work and just enough offense.
ATLANTA — Struggling infielder Nick Franklin, hitless in his past 16 at-bats, is heading back to Triple-A Tacoma in an effort to recapture his swing.
Even for those who don’t pay attention to it, the Major League Baseball first-year player draft is a painful exercise for Seattle Mariners fans. They are reminded of June 6, 2006, a day that poses a question destined to be asked for, oh, the next 25 years or so.
So this is how it’s suddenly going for the Seattle Mariners? Really? For starters, Erasmo Ramirez returned Tuesday from the minors and mucked about with the type of performance that got him sent him to Tacoma in the first place.
John Buck's go-ahead, two-run homer in the seventh inning was the difference, as the Seattle Mariners beat the Atlanta Braves, 7-5, in the first of two interleague games at Turner Field.
Struggling infielder Nick Franklin, hitless in his last 16 at-bats, is heading back to Triple-A Tacoma in an effort to recapture his swing.
NEW YORK — Perhaps it only took a few days out of the Seattle Mariners’ lineup — four, to be exact — for fans to rediscover Robinson Cano’s value.
Some numbers will jump out in glancing at Monday’s box score after the Seattle Mariners put a 10-2 beating on the New York Yankees in the South Bronx.
Kyle Seager and Michael Saunders had big nights at the plate to help Felix Hernandez win his fifth straight start in the Seattle Mariners' 10-2 shellacking of the struggling New York Yankees.
Robinson Cano was once again absent from the Seattle Mariners’ lineup on Sunday afternoon, though Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said the star second baseman is “doing fine.”
The baseball had been struck a few minutes prior by Victor Martinez and caught by Michael Saunders, and now here it was in the Seattle Mariners’ clubhouse, being handed to rookie left-hander Roenis Elias as a keepsake to remind him of the best performance of his young professional career.
Robinson Cano was once again absent from the Seattle Mariners lineup on Sunday afternoon, though manager Lloyd McClendon said the star second baseman is doing fine.
Playing again without injured Robinson Cano, they got six strong innings from Chris Young and two clutch singles from Willie Bloomquist — and then held Saturday night for a 3-2 victory over Detroit at Safeco Field.
Willie Bloomquist went 2-for-4 and drove in two runs to help the Seattle Mariners defeat the Detroit Tigers, 3-2, on Saturday in the middle test of a three-game set.
Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez each homered to back a strong outing from Justin Verlander, and the Detroit Tigers defeated the Seattle Mariners, 6-3, in the opener of a three-game set.
And here, on Fedora Night at Safeco Field, the Mariners brass got an up-close look, courtesy of the Detroit Tigers, at the benefit of finding an impact bat to put behind Robinson Cano in their lineup.
Second baseman Robinson Cano is battling a bruise between the thumb and forefinger on his left hand, the Mariners confirmed Friday when he wasnt in the lineup for a second straight game.
Right-hander Taijuan Walker reported nothing more than ordinary soreness Thursday, one day after testing his recovery from a sore shoulder by working three innings in a rehab start at Triple-A Tacoma.
So, how much longer do the Seattle Mariners stick with Brandon Maurer after watching him cough up another fur ball Thursday in a 7-5 loss to the Los Angeles Angels at Safeco Field?
Erick Aybar went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run as the LA Angels of Anaheim grabbed a 7-5 win over the Seattle Mariners in the finale of a four-game set.
The buzz around Mariners ace Felix Hernandez isnt just that hes 7-1 with a 2.57 ERA or that hes won his last four starts after overmatching the Angels in Wednesdays 3-1 victory. Its that hes showing increased octane on his fastball. Hes now touching 95 mph.
Seattle Mariners top pitching prospect Taijuan Walker put up an unimpressive pitching line in his return to the mound Wednesday with the Tacoma Rainiers.
Well, sure, Seattle Mariners left-hander James Paxton thinks it stinks that his recovery is on hold after an exam earlier this week revealed inflammation in his pitching shoulder.
Mike Zunino homered and drove in three runs to back a strong outing from Felix Hernandez, as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, 3-1, in the third matchup of a four-game set.

The Seattle Mariners are putting left-handed pitcher James Paxton back on the shelf after an MRI revealed inflammation in his throwing shoulder.
Rookie left-hander Roenis Elias steadied Tuesday night after a shaky start that included four doubles in a three-run second inning. The Seattle Mariners nearly erased a pair of three-run deficits against Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver.
C.J. Cron homered and drove in two runs to help the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to a 6-4 win over the Seattle Mariners in the second matchup of a four-game set.
A return this week by left-hander James Paxton to the Seattle Mariners’ rotation looks increasingly unlikely after club officials chose not to have him throw a routine bullpen workout before Monday’s victory over the Los Angeles Angels.
Put Seattle Mariners right-hander Chris Young on the mound at Safeco Field, and he’s in a class by himself. For proof, to steal a line from manager Lloyd McClendon, just check the book.
Chris Young led the Seattle Mariners with a commanding performance from the mound to a 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the opener a four-game set.
Put Mariners right-hander Chris Young on the mound at Safeco Field, and hes in a class by himself. For proof, to steal a line from manager Lloyd McClendon, just check the book.
The status of left-hander James Paxtons return to the big-league rotation remains on hold as the Mariners continue to assess his bounce-back recovery after pitching three innings Saturday in a rehab start for Triple-A Tacoma.
A day later, Seattle Mariners left-hander James Paxton still felt good about his first rehabilitation outing at Triple-A Tacoma, even if he felt a little tightness in his triceps.
Many of the 26,839 folks at Safeco Field on Sunday had to be impressed with Houston starter Dallas Keuchel, who pitched a complete game, allowed only four hits and retired 21 of the final 22 Seattle Mariners batters he faced in a 4-1 Astros victory.
Lefty James Paxton is a bit sore after pitching for the Rainiers on Saturday, but nobody's concerned.
Dallas Keuchel pitched a four-hitter for his second complete game in his last three starts, leading the Houston Astros to a 4-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.
Dallas Keuchel went the distance and George Springer hit the go-ahead two-run homer in the sixth inning as Houston topped Seattle, 4-1, in Sunday's finale of a four-game series.
Right-hander Brandon Maurer, after a 10-day layoff, failed to survive five innings Saturday night in what projected as a make-or-break start against Houston at Safeco Field.
Put the Mariners in 1979 replica uniforms, as happened Saturday night, and well, if you remember that year, this 9-4 loss to Houston probably seemed an appropriate tribute to the franchise’s disco-era charm.
As two top pitching prospects continue their rehab from injuries, the Mariners' Brandon Maurer pitches to save his job.
Felix Hernandez struck out nine over eight innings as the Seattle Mariners beat the Houston Astros, 6-1, in the second test of a four-game series.
Willie Bloomquist? A two-run homer? Well, who better to play the key role Friday night when the Mariners kicked off their Turn Back the Clock weekend? Bloomquist and Kyle Seager each drove in three runs in support of Felix Hernandez in a 6-1 victory over the Houston Astros at Safeco Field.

Heres that game of inches cliche come to life and coming to life to the Mariners benefit Thursday night in a 3-1 victory over the Houston Astros at Safeco Field.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Logan Morrison has a few goals in mind for his planned rehabilitation stint at Triple-A Tacoma beginning Friday.
Triple-A Tacoma is in line, if all goes as planned, to get a pair of major-league upgrades albeit likely short-term upgrades by the end of the weekend.
The Mariners had an answer for Chris Youngs first-inning problems Wednesday afternoon but couldnt counter Shin-Soo Choos tie-breaking homer in a 4-3 loss to the Texas Rangers.
ARLINGTON, Texas — The next step for Seattle Mariners left-hander James Paxton, after throwing 53 pitches Tuesday in a simulated game, is a minor league rehab assignment to test his recovery from a strained back muscle.
ARLINGTON, Texas — It’s hard to characterize Mariners right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma as underrated, underappreciated or relatively unknown outside of the Pacific Northwest. After all, Iwakuma was an All-Star a year ago and finished third in the Cy Young Award balloting.
Kyle Seager went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBI to lead the Seattle Mariners in a 6-2 win over the Texas Rangers to open a two-game set.
The Seattle Mariners placed designated hitter Corey Hart on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday due to a hamstring strain he sustained over the weekend.
The Mariners are about to take another chance on a recovering Tommy John patient after reaching agreement with veteran reliever Todd Coffey on a minor-league deal.
Even before Sunday, when he produced his first four-hit game as a Mariner in helping to end a four-game skid, second baseman Robinson Cano stepped forward with a prediction.
MINNEAPOLIS — Infielder Nick Franklin likely will be recalled from Triple-A Tacoma, perhaps as soon as Tuesday, if his achy back cooperates.
MINNEAPOLIS — Start with Felix Hernandez. Add a few clutch hits. (Just a few, but finally.) And close it out with a clean inning from Fernando Rodney.
Clutch hits and a solid outing from Felix Hernandez lift Seattle to its first win in the past five games.
Infielder Nick Franklin appears poised as a likely recall candidate for the Mariners from Triple-A Tacoma, perhaps as soon as Tuesday, if his achy back cooperates.
MINNEAPOLIS — The only real concern Saturday for Mariners left-hander James Paxton, who faced hitters for the first time in 40 days, surfaced when Cole Gillespie shot a line drive back through the box.
Tacoma Rainiers manager Roy Howell has worked with infielder Gabriel Noriega for several years now.
While the Seattle Mariners were busy courting free-agent second baseman Robinson Cano last winter, the Chicago White Sox outbid four other teams to acquire Cuban defector Jose Abreu.
MINNEAPOLIS — Here’s the takeaway on the Seattle Mariners’ losing streak, which reached four games after a 4-3 defeat to the Minnesota Twins on Saturday night at Target Field.
The Mariners losing streak reached four games Saturday night in a 4-3 loss to the Minnesota Twins at Target Field.
Brian Dozier and Josmil Pinto homered to back seven solid innings from Kyle Gibson, as the Minnesota Twins held off the Seattle Mariners, 5-4, to open a three-game set at Target Field.
If Mariners veteran Chris Young was due for a clunker after winning his last three starts, this probably qualifies. It's not that he was shelled Friday in a 5-4 loss to Minnesota at Target Field.
For all of the statistical and scouting analysis that so thoroughly permeates baseball, there remain occasions, it seems, when there is no discernible why to explain what happens.
If this slump is taking a mental toll on Brad Miller, it wasnt evident during a conversation with the affable Seattle Mariners shortstop Wednesday, before the finale of a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Triple-A Tacoma infielder Chris Taylor is headed to the 7-day disabled list after injuring his left pinky finger on a slide at second base in Tuesdays game at Las Vegas.
Nine pitchers combined to deliver 304 pitches Wednesday at Safeco Field, and the loudest cheer was for a cap Lloyd McClendon threw 30 feet.
Everything remains thumbs-up for ailing Mariners pitchers James Paxton and Taijuan Walker in their efforts to return to the rotation.
What generally got overlooked in Tuesdays disappointing loss to Tampa Bay was the Mariners pretty much went fetal at the plate. And, OK, that was against former Cy Young winner David Price. It happens.
Rookie outfielder Stefen Romero is starting to reap the benefits from more regular duty in the Seattle Mariners’ lineup.
Assuming your knowledge of high school baseball in the San Diego area is no better than mine, you probably aren’t familiar with Alex Jackson.
All for nothing. Eight masterful innings by Hisashi Iwakuma slipped away Tuesday night when Fernando Rodney yielded two runs in the ninth inning in what, for the Mariners, was a numbing 2-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays at Safeco Field.
Matt Joyce delivered the game-winning single in the top of the ninth inning to help the Tampa Bay Rays rally past the Seattle Mariners, 2-1, to even this three-game series at a game apiece.
Let’s talk fashion.
There are no sure things in baseball until the final out. That’s part of its charm, that there are no absolutes. But give Felix Hernandez an early nine-run lead at Safeco Field against Tampa Bay?
Stefen Romero homered, drove in three runs and scored three times and the Seattle Mariners routed the Tampa Bay Rays, 12- 5, in the opener of a three-game set.
Let's talk fashion. About that high-stirrup look that Mariners rookie center fielder James Jones sports? It's not a style statement or a hat-tip to tradition or the game's golden era.
Taijuan Walker and James Paxton each took positive steps Sunday as they attempt to return from injury.
The Mariners 9-7 loss to Kansas City on Sunday proved to be a comedy of errors. Five of them. But none were all that funny.
There figured to be some changes Saturday in the Seattle Mariners’ lineup after scoring just two runs in their three previous games. And it started at the top when rookie James Jones replaced Michael Saunders as the leadoff hitter.
When Scott Steinmann agreed to manage the Seattle Mariners’ Single-A Clinton club this season, he thought he was in line for yet another anonymous minor league season.
Justin Smoak smacked a two-run homer, Dustin Ackley added a solo shot and the Seattle Mariners beat the Kansas City Royals, 3-1, in the third test of a four-game set.
Seattle Mariners veteran Chris Young continued his remarkable career renaissance Saturday night by outpitching Kansas City phenom Yordano Ventura in a 3-1 victory at Safeco Field. Young improved to 3-0 and lowered his ERA to 2.63 by limiting the Royals to one tainted run in eight innings before Fernando Rodney closed out the victory with a scoreless ninth inning. Young underwent a series of shoulder operations in recent years that threatened to end his career before agreeing last year, as a last resort, to a procedure that addressed a nerve issue. And now look.
Jason Vargas tossed seven shutout innings and the Kansas City Royals defeated the Seattle Mariners, 6-1, in the second test of a four-game set.
Its not like the Mariners havent seen Jason Vargas do this before. He spent four years here in Seattle, and his career numbers at Safeco Field generally range from solid to impressive.
The initial assessment Friday from left-hander James Paxton brimmed with optimism after he threw from a mound for the first time since a strained back muscle forced his exit from the April 8 game against the Angels.
Trailing by 16 runs after five innings, the Clinton LumberKings were down — in their moods as well as on the scoreboard. Then the players, all Seattle Mariners prospects hoping to one day make the major leagues, started thinking back to last weekend, when they overcame an eight-run deficit.
Lloyd McClendon believes it’s best to wait 50 games before making judgments about the Seattle Mariners. Such patience is prudent for a manager who, from the looks of a lineup card he tweaks daily, still is getting to know his team.
The countdown clock on injured Seattle Mariners pitchers James Paxton and Taijuan Walker is about to enter an accelerated phase. Both are scheduled to start throwing from a mound this weekend in bullpen workouts.
Hisashi Iwakuma tossed eight scoreless innings as the Seattle Mariners shut out the Kansas City Royals, 1-0, in the opener of a four-game set.
Two amazing streaks intertwined to the Mariners benefit Thursday night in a 1-0 victory over Kansas City at Safeco Field.
Justin Smoak brought in the go-ahead run in the top of the 10th inning and the Seattle Mariners took the opener of a traditional doubleheader, 6-4, over the Oakland Athletics.
Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez didnt get a single strikeout Wednesday while facing 31 batters over 6ª innings in the first game of a doubleheader against Oakland.
OK, sure, it could have been better. The Mariners could have swept their doubleheader Wednesday over Oakland, could have swept all four games from the two-time defending American League West champs.
OAKLAND — Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano chose not to return fire Tuesday when asked about comments by former Yankees teammate Mariano Rivera that questioned his “passion” for the game.
OAKLAND — Big start. Big finish. And the Mariners win again.
Justin Smoak recorded two hits, two runs scored and three RBI in the Seattle Mariners' 8-3 win over the Oakland Athletics in the second test of a four-game set from O.co Coliseum.
The latest salvo from New York at one-time Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano might be the most damaging yet:
OAKLAND — Outfielder James Jones rejoined the Mariners before Monday’s game against the A’s at O.co Coliseum and, unlike his brief previous stay, this time he’ll get a chance to prove he belongs.
Let’s start with the homer. Lots of stuff went right Monday night for the Seattle Mariners as they continued their recent surge with a 4-2 victory against the Oakland A’s at O.co Coliseum.
Stefen Romero stroked his first career homer and scored twice to help the Seattle Mariners secure a 4-2 win over the Oakland Athletics in the opener of a four-game set Monday at O.co Coliseum.
HOUSTON — Center fielder Abraham Almonte’s ongoing struggles finally convinced the Seattle Mariners that he requires a remedial tour at Triple-A Tacoma to get turned around.
Robinson Cano and Willie Bloomquist each had two RBI as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Houston Astros, 8-7, in the rubber match of a three-game set.
The Mariners held on again against the Astros and exited Minute Maid Park with an 8-7 victory and series win over Houston when Danny Farquhar secured a six-out save.
HOUSTON — Struggling outfielder Abraham Almonte dodged a possible demotion Saturday when the Mariners had to clear roster space to accommodate starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma’s return from the disabled list.
The Seattle Mariners are paying Robinson Cano $24 million a season through 2023. During Cano's first month in a Mariners uniform, this is what he produced in 25 games: 29 hits, one home run, five doubles, 12 RBIs, eight walks and 16 strikeouts.
The Mariners, aided by three walks from Houston starter Dallas Keuchel, who hadnt walked anyone in the first six innings, roused themselves for eight runs in the seventh before holding on for a wild 9-8 victory.
Struggling outfielder Abraham Almonte dodged a possible demotion Saturday when the Mariners had to clear roster space to accommodate Hisashi Iwakuma's return from the disabled list.
The Seattle Mariners activated pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma from the 15-day disabled list to start Saturday's game against the Houston Astros.
George Springer's infield single in the 11th inning lifted the Houston Astros to a 5-4 win over the Seattle Mariners in the first matchup of a three-game set.
If the Mariners are ever going to gain real traction in their rebuilding process, they need to find a way to do what pretty much every other club does. Beat Houston.
Outfielder Michael Saunders is drawing more playing time lately in the Mariners lineup because, to hear manager Lloyd McClendon tell it, players make out the lineup.
