Jarred Kelenic
Jarred Kelenic Absent from lineup
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 5:01 PM
Kelenic isn't in the Mariners' lineup Thursday against Texas.
Analysis: Kelenic will be forced to the bench with fellow southpaw Jordan Montgomery on the mound for the Rangers. Dylan Moore, Julio Rodriguez and Teoscar Hernandez will start across the Mariners' outfield while Kelenic sits.
Josh Rojas
Josh Rojas Idle versus lefty
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 4:57 PM
Rojas isn't in the Mariners' lineup Thursday against the Rangers.
Analysis: Left-hander Jordan Montgomery will toe the slab to start Thursday's contest, meaning Rojas will remain on the bench to begin the game. Jose Cabaellero will start at second base and bat ninth in Rojas' place.
Sam Haggerty
Sam Haggerty Productive despite part-time role
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 11:53 AM
Haggerty started at designated hitter in Wednesday's loss to the Astros and went 1-for-1 with a stolen base and a walk before being pinch-hit for in the sixth inning.
Analysis: Haggerty's steal leaves him one short of a double-digit tally for the second straight season. The 29-year-old utility man has just five extra-base hits across 101 plate appearances, but he's carrying a .350 on-base percentage thanks largely to a career-best 11.9 percent walk rate. Haggerty's versatility should allow him to see at least a couple of other appearances in Seattle's final four games of the regular season.
Eugenio Suarez
Eugenio Suarez Busy night on basepaths
Thu, Sep 28, 2023, 11:47 AM
Suarez went 1-for-2 with a two-run single and three walks in a loss to the Astros on Wednesday.
Analysis: Suarez was a consummate thorn in the side of Astros pitching all night after going hitless over his previous two games. The veteran slugger is mired in an 11-game homerless streak, but he's carrying a double-digit walk rate (10.3 percent) for the sixth time in the last seven seasons, while his 94 RBI are his most since 2019 and second on the Mariners behind Julio Rodriguez.
Jarred Kelenic
Jarred Kelenic Takes seat Wednesday
Wed, Sep 27, 2023, 4:35 PM
Kelenic is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.
Analysis: Kelenic has only one extra-base hit (a double) in 43 plate appearances since returning Sept. 11 from a fractured left foot, though he has drawn eight walks. Dylan Moore, Julio Rodriguez and Teoscar Hernandez will start across the outfield for Seattle on Wednesday as Sam Haggerty occupies the DH role.
Dominic Canzone
Dominic Canzone On bench again Wednesday
Wed, Sep 27, 2023, 4:30 PM
Canzone remains out of the lineup Wednesday versus the Astros.
Analysis: Canzone has started just one of the Mariners' last four games, with two of those absences coming against right-handers. Dylan Moore will play left field and hit fifth Wednesday against the Astros and left-hander Framber Valdez.
Josh Rojas
Josh Rojas Sitting against lefty
Wed, Sep 27, 2023, 4:24 PM
Rojas is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Astros.
Analysis: Jose Caballero will start at second base and bat ninth in the Mariners' hugely important matchup versus the Astros and left-hander Framber Valdez. Rojas has slashed just .233/.313/.279 against lefties this year between Arizona and Seattle.
Matt Brash
Matt Brash Dominant for 25th hold
Wed, Sep 27, 2023, 12:12 PM
Brash secured his 25th hold in a win over the Astros on Tuesday, firing two scoreless innings during which he allowed a hit and recorded two strikeouts.
Analysis: Brash threw 19 of 25 pitches for strikes while extending his scoreless appearance streak to 13 outings. The right-hander continues to primarily see seventh- and eighth-inning work, although he's arguably been more trustworthy overall in the last month-plus than primary closer Andres Munoz. If the Mariners do make it into the postseason, how manager Scott Servais distributes high-leverage assignments will be something to monitor.
Cal Raleigh
Cal Raleigh On base thrice in win
Wed, Sep 27, 2023, 12:06 PM
Raleigh went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, a walk and a run in a win over the Astros on Tuesday.
Analysis: Raleigh's hot hitting persisted in Tuesday's critical win for the Mariners, with the power-hitting backstop providing his third multi-hit effort in the last six games. The 26-year-old took a big step forward at the plate in mid-August and hasn't looked back, as he boasts a stellar .280/.342/.553 slash line with 16 extra-base hits and 24 RBI across his last 36 games.
Dominic Canzone
Dominic Canzone Out of Tuesday's lineup
Tue, Sep 26, 2023, 4:49 PM
Canzone isn't starting Tuesday against Houston.
Analysis: Canzone will take a seat after going 1-for-3 during Monday's loss in the series opener. Jarred Kelenic will start in left field with Teoscar Hernandez in right, and Mike Ford will serve as Seattle's designated hitter.
Josh Rojas
Josh Rojas Two hit day in shutout loss
Tue, Sep 26, 2023, 11:19 AM
Rojas went 2-for-3 with a double and a run in a loss to the Astros on Monday.
Analysis: Rojas' bat was the only real sign of life for the Mariners in an absolutely moribund night for the offense. The No. 9 hitter's multi-hit effort was his first since Sept. 5 and snapped an 0-for-13 funk that had encompassed his previous five games.
Luis Castillo
Luis Castillo No help in loss
Mon, Sep 25, 2023, 11:13 PM
Castillo (14-8) allowed five runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out eight over six innings, taking the loss Monday versus the Astros.
Analysis: Castillo gave up three runs in the second inning and then allowed solo shots to Yordan Alvarez in the third and Kyle Tucker in the sixth. Meanwhile, the Mariners mustered only three hits and a walk in the contest, leaving Castillo with lackluster run support. The loss was his first since July 14 against the Tigers, and he'd won eight of his 12 starts since that game. He's now at a 3.20 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 215:51 K:BB through 194.1 innings through 32 starts this year. He's tentatively projected to make his last start of the regular season at home versus the Rangers this weekend.
Julio Rodriguez
Julio Rodriguez On base three times Sunday
Mon, Sep 25, 2023, 1:52 PM
Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and two runs in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.
Analysis: Rodriguez played the role of table setter in the narrow loss, coming home on both Jarred Kelenic's fielder's choice in the sixth and Teoscar Hernandez's RBI single in the seventh. Rodriguez's multi-hit effort was his first since Sept. 15 but eighth overall this month, and his two trips across the plate Sunday pushed his season run total to an even 100.
Jarred Kelenic
Jarred Kelenic Productive in one-hit day
Mon, Sep 25, 2023, 1:47 PM
Kelenic went 1-for-4 with an RBI fielder's choice, a run-scoring single, a stolen base, a walk and a run in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.
Analysis: The 24-year-old's busy stat line had a bit of everything, including his 13th steal of the season. Kelenic's afternoon also included his second two-RBI tally over the last four starts, pushing his average and OPS to .286 and .766, respectively, in nine games since returning from an extended stint on the injured list due to a fractured foot.
J.P. Crawford
J.P. Crawford Homers in loss
Mon, Sep 25, 2023, 6:32 AM
Crawford went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's 9-8 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: Crawford took Nathan Eovaldi deep in third inning for his second home run over his last five games and his fifth this month. He continues to be one of the Mariners' more impactful hitters, as he now has a hit in 12 of his last 13 games and is slashing .281/.349/.491 over that span. His 17 home runs on the year nearly double his previous career high of nine from 2021 while his 58 RBI and 91 runs scored also are career-best totals.
Teoscar Hernandez
Teoscar Hernandez Goes deep in loss
Mon, Sep 25, 2023, 6:26 AM
Hernandez went 2-for-4 with solo homer, a walk, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: Hernandez finally found some power with his bat, as Sunday's home run was his first since Sept. 5 and just his sixth extra-base hit this month. He now has six hits and five walks over his last five games and will look to continue swinging a hot bat over the final week of the season. For the year, Hernandez is slashing .264/.313/.449 with 26 home runs, 92 RBI, 69 runs and a 38:199 BB:K in 655 plate appearances.
Bryan Woo
Bryan Woo Surrenders four homers in loss
Mon, Sep 25, 2023, 6:22 AM
Woo (4-5) allowed six runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six in just 3.1 innings during a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.
Analysis: Sunday was a nightmare outing for Woo, who had given up just six home runs in 16 starts heading into the day but surrendered four long balls and recorded just 10 outs in Texas. Marcus Semien led things off with a solo blast in the first followed by a two-run shot from Corey Seager in the third. Adolis Garcia then kicked off the fourth with a homer and Woo was finally pulled after Leody Taveras went deep just three batters later. Woo has sandwiched two scoreless outings in between two poor outings during which he combined to give up 11 runs. He'll look to end the regular season on the right foot with a rematch against the Rangers this weekend.
Dominic Canzone
Dominic Canzone Not starting Sunday
Sun, Sep 24, 2023, 11:10 AM
Canzone isn't in the Mariners' lineup Sunday against the Rangers, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.
Analysis: Canzone will sit out Sunday's series finale after going 3-for-16 with a homer and four RBI over his last eight games. Jarred Kelenic, Julio Rodriguez and Teoscar Hernandez will start across the outfield with Mike Ford in as the Mariners' DH.
Logan Gilbert
Logan Gilbert Gets no run support in loss
Sun, Sep 24, 2023, 2:39 AM
Gilbert (13-7) took the loss against Texas on Saturday, allowing two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two batters over 5.2 innings.
Analysis: Gilbert wasn't exactly impressive in the outing, notching twice as many walks (four) as punchouts (two), though one of the free passes was intentional. Still, the right-hander fell one out shy of a quality start and kept Seattle in the contest despite a listless performance by the team's offense. Gilbert was tagged with his second straight loss after going 8-0 over 13 games between July 4 and Sept. 11. He lines up for one more regular-season start, tentatively slated as a rematch with Texas late next week, this time in Seattle.
Jarred Kelenic
Jarred Kelenic Idle against southpaw
Sat, Sep 23, 2023, 2:46 PM
Kelenic isn't starting Saturday versus Texas.
Analysis: Jordan Montgomery will toe the slab for the Rangers on Saturday, so Kelenic and his career .570 OPS versus lefties will sit down for the start of the game. Sam Haggerty, Julio Rodriguez and Dylan Moore will start in the outfield from left to right Saturday.
