Lookout Landing would like to issue our most sincere of apologies for the lack of recap for last night’s game, a 4-2 loss to the white hosiery’d men of Chicago. Your refund check is most assuredly in the mail.
After getting touched up for two runs in the first inning, Marco Gonzales was struck in his right hand by a comebacker in the second inning, but was able to finish the play and get the out before exiting the game. He was examined last night and the X-ray found no fractures.
From last night:
Gonzales said initial scans showed no broken bones. "We don't know the full extent of it, but I don't think there are any breaks." Hit at the base of his thumb. Hand is heavily wrapped, will be re-evaluated tomorrow.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) March 13, 2018
The rest of the bullpen was solid throughout the night, and recently acquired pitcher Bryan Bonnell is confirmed as a Large Baseball Playing Man.
Bryan Bonnell, acquired from TBR, is a certified Big Boy. Tall, broad-chested with a powerful lower half. Topping at 94 on the gun but it seems like there should be more in there. pic.twitter.com/huGhLkcdu9— Lookout Landing (@LookoutLanding) March 13, 2018
Anyways, here’s a fresh update on Gonzales:
Tests confirm just a bruise on Marco Gonzales' hand. The hope is he won't miss a start. Hand his heavily wrapped but he will be able to throw today.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) March 13, 2018
So, YAY! Not that serious after all. Just a bruise! And remember, the ball didn’t hit his throwing hand, which feels like the first stroke of luck the Mariners have ever had (it isn’t).
Felix Hernandez is scheduled to throw a bullpen today.— Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) March 13, 2018
And here is your song for today, and all days of Mariners fandom:
