There’s something dynamic about Cal Raleigh and Jarred Kelenic

There’s something dynamic about Cal Raleigh and Jarred Kelenic

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ The way a few Mariners are hitting suggests better times to come, per a nifty little metric called dynamic hard hit rate (DHH%). If I asked you which Mariner hits the fastball the best, my guess is you’d say Julio Rodríguez. Maybe some consideration would be given to fellow All-Star Ty France, but if we’re defining “best” as “hardest and farthest,” it’s hard to argue with the Mariners’s rookie phenom. However, according to at least one metric—dynamic hard hit rate—the Mariners’ best fastball hitter is not Julio but his...

8/5/22: Open Game Thread

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports hello,,, nevin After an agonizing 48 hours of no Mariners baseball, they graciously return tonight, this time against a hated division rival. The Angels have had a rough go of things, to put things mildly; yesterday saw them hit seven solo home runs only to fall 8-7 against the basement-dwelling A’s. Simply amazing. The return of Ty France is here! What a sight for sore eyes. Jarred Kelenic is getting the day off against the left-handed Patrick Sandoval, but he could see action in later innings as a defensive...

Mariners didn’t perform magic on deadline but it could be coming with reinforcements

The Mariners were mostly quiet at the trade deadline but with the acquisition of Luis Castillo, plus the expected return of Julio Rodriguez, Ty France, Mitch Hanger and more, they will rely on what has them primed to end this playoff drought.

Mariners beat Astros 5-4, but send five players to the doctor’s office

Wait—is that Toro in the outfield? | Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports A tale told through Gameday notifications Game Advisory: Status Change - In Progress The Mariners scored three runs in the first inning tonight, but not without putting their bodies on the line. It began, of course, with a Ty France hit by a pitch, as is tradition. Kyle Lewis then got on behind France, and they both managed to score runs, but given the state of their knees, I’m using the word “run” loosely. With the score already 2-0, Framber let another one get away from him. Adam Frazier...

Mariners smash button labeled “In Case of Emergency,” are amiably carried to victory by Ty France

Photo by Alika Jenner/ Several key moments stop the short three-game skid There’s a reason it’s worth having multiple (All-) stars. With Julio Rodríguez once again sidelined as his wrist nears full health, Jesse Winker briefly waylaid with a rolled ankle, and Kyle Lewis still easing back into consistent usage, Seattle went with a throwback lineup, hearkening to the days of “Oops, All Second-Basemen” that I do not relish reliving. At times the defense bowed tonight, but it was not any of the erstwhile keystoners who struggled. An outfield of infielders behind...

Ty France plays like an All-Star, leads Mariners over Texas 4-3

Using a solid outing from the starting pitcher, lockdown relief work from the bullpen, outstanding defense and just enough timely hitting, the Mariners continued their dominance over their AL West foe.

Julio Rodríguez day-to-day with left wrist soreness

Lindsey Wasson-USA TODAY Sports Initial panic eventually gives way to cautious optimism Before tonight’s game, Mariner All-Stars Ty France and Julio Rodríguez were honored before a sellout crowd north of 45,000. Like they had been the entire winning streak, Julio and Ty were slotted 1-2 in the batting order. After the ceremony in which Mariner legends Bret Boone and Mike Cameron threw out first pitches to France and Rodríguez, though, something was quickly amiss. Literally a minute before first pitch, it was announced over the PA system that Julio was a late...
