Mariners Q&A: Paxton timetable, spending limits, Almonte atop the order…and more

  An open date Thursday for the Mariners prompted a twitter call for participation in a long-form, question-and-answer session. Here we go:   @q13foxwebguy: If you had to put money down, when will Paxton be back in rotation? And yes or no on Walker returning this year.    We should know a little more on James Paxton after he begins playing catch Friday, but when I heard strained back muscle (specifically, a strained latissimus dorsi), I immediately thought six weeks minimum. Since it occurred April 8, that would be latter May. I see that as a best-case scenario. But with … Read...

Mariners moves: Franklin, Ramirez sent down; Gillespie promoted

The Mariners made three roster moves today, sending Nick Franklin back to Triple-A Tacoma, optioning struggling starter Erasmo Ramirez to Single-A High Desert and recalling outfielder Cole Gillespie from the Rainiers. The Mariners current active roster is 24, which means another move is coming. The Mariners 40-man roster is now full at 40 players. Gillespie, 29, was batting .362 with five home runs and 14 RBI in 16 games with the Rainiers. The Portland, Oregon, native has appeared in 78 career Major League games with the Diamondbacks (2010-2011), Giants (2013) and Cubs (2013). He was...

Franklin tweets he’s headed back to Tacoma; other moves likely

Infielder Nick Franklin tweeted Wednesday night that he’s been optioned back to Triple-A Tacoma and will join the Rainiers for Thursday’s series opener at Las Vegas (Phillies). Franklin tweeted: “Las Vegas here I come.” There was no immediate confirmation from the Mariners on any transactions, but Franklin isn’t likely to the the only roster move prior to Friday’s series opener against Texas at Safeco Field. Right-handed pitcher Erasmo Ramirez is also facing a likely demotion to Tacoma after a series of poor starts left him at 1-3 with a 6.75 ERA. Manager Lloyd McClendon confirmed...

Mariners notebook: Kyle Seager’s rhythm search requires work

Kyle Seager’s two homers and career-high five RBIs didn’t just happen Wednesday when he propelled the Seattle Mariners to a 5-3 victory over the Houston Astros at Safeco Field.

Franklin headed back to the Rainers?

Nick Franklin sent out a tweet after Wednesday's 5-3 win which indicated that he is headed back to Class AAA Tacoma. The Rainers begin a road trip in Las Vegas on Thursday. https://twitter.com/NickFrank20/status/459137496098430976 Franklin started in right field for the Mariners against the Astros on Wednesday — it was his first start in the outfield for the Mariners — and manager Lloyd McClendon said he was looking for Franklin to give the offense a badly needed spark. Franklin went 1 for 3 with a single, snapping an 0-for-13 skid. But he missed the cutoff man on a play in which the...

Seager’s walk-off blast ends M’s skid in 5-3 victory over Astros

Well, how about this? Just when it appeared the Mariners were headed toward a ninth straight loss Wednesday afternoon, Kyle Seager unloaded a three-run homer that delivered a 5-3 walk-off victory over the Houston Astros. It was Seager’s second homer of the game, and it erased what loomed as another frustrating loss. He jumped a first-pitch offering from Josh Fields, who simply started walking toward the dugout without turning to look. The Mariners, trailing 3-2, opened the ninth inning with singles by Robinson Cano and Corey Hart. After Michael Saunders replaced Hart as a pinch-runner,...
