Jason Vargas is having a 2012 season a bit similar to Brandon League was before League melted down in the results department. Vargas's contact rate is much higher this year and he's lost quite a bit in the swing-and-miss department. I'm wary of his maintaining a league average strikeout rate unless he goes back to missing more bats. In the meantime he's benefiting tremendously from a .223 BABIP and a strand rate in the high 70s. Jason Vargas has use to the Mariners, but his trade value might never get higher than it is for the next couple weeks.

The third game in a row for Shawn Kelley and this time, 26 pitches thrown. It's weird. Many thought that Kelley was sent down after his one appearance in Tokyo for allowing a home run and getting into Wedge's doghouse and yet once he came back to the Mariners, Eric Wedge has shown no recalcitrance in using Kelley quite frequently.

Maybe it was true that the initial demotion was far more about the team not feeling that Kelley's slider was up to snuff yet. Since he absolutely relies on the slider, that would be a glaring need to remedy.

Lucas Luetge, LOOGY extraordinaire. For the time being.

Here's a great thing. Up by an unusual amount of runs, Tom Wilhelmsen didn't have to do much to finish off this ball game. The biggest area under his domain was to throw strikes, and that he did. Ten pitches, nine strikes and nine pitches within the pitch F/X-indicated strike zone. He didn't have to try and fool hitters a bunch. Just chuck strikes down there and get the game over with. Which he did, and he did.
