News and stories about the Seattle Mariners and other analysis from around the league.

Woohoo a Mariner victory! Here are some links to celebrate!

  • Apparently James Paxton isn't slated to return until late May. However, he has been cleared to play catch on Friday.
  • Taijuan Walker has also been cleared to play catch and will do so on Monday.
  • Hisashi Iwakuma will make his first rehab start on Sunday for Triple-A Tacoma.
  • Mariners' third base prospect D.J. Peterson was pulled from a game for "precautionary reasons" due to a tight glute muscle.
  • Apparently Nick Franklin is headed back to the Rainiers. By the time you read this, we might know who's coming up to replace him. But right now, nothing. Bob Dutton seems to think it could be outfielder Cole Gillespie.
  • Shannon Drayer has some quotes from LLoyd McClendon and Jack Z regarding the team's problems.
  • Michael Pineda got into trouble. Again. For the same thing as before. However, this time, he's being reprimanded for it.
  • Hector Noesi was DFA'd by the Rangers.
  • Another one bites the dust for the Rangers, as pitcher Pedro Figueroa will now hit the DL. Do you think you could field a whole team with injured Rangers yet?
  • Additionally, Kevin Kouzmanoff left a game with back tightness, but it doesn't appear serious enough to warrant a DL stint.
  • Shin-Soo Choo twisted his ankle in a game but doesn't appear to be headed for the DL either. But jeez, if you think baseball hates the M's just look at the Rangers right now.
  • Josh Johnson is headed for his second career Tommy John Surgery and becomes the twenty billionth pitcher to hit the DL this season.
  • Grant Brisbee explains why Gerrit Cole did not get suspended for starting the Pirates-Brewers brawl.
  • Carson Cistulli of Fangraphs looks at the most improved pitchers this year by projected WAR. I slam my head into a wall as I read who #1 is.
  • The Hardball Times gives a lesson on identifying platoon players.
  • Wrigley Field had its 100th anniversary yesterday. Even after all these years, fans of all ages are still frustrated by their favorite team.
  • Elvis Andrus took quite a beautiful swing a couple of days ago.
