ROSTER UPDATE: Julio Mateo's done for the year with a broken (left) hand, so say hello to Jon Huber, the guy we picked up from San Diego for Dave Hansen. Standard arm who puts the ball over the plate, misses a few bats, and keeps the infield a little busier than the guys behind him. Not much of a pitcher, but then neither was Mateo, so the team's no worse now than it was a day ago.

Same old story:
Felix ERA: 4.81
Escobar ERA: 3.87
Felix xFIP: 3.70
Escobar xFIP: 4.27
And just for good measure, Weaver xFIP: 4.51
It's nice to have the best starting pitcher in the division.
LET'S GO MARINERS!
