FanPost Friday: When will Jarred Kelenic be called up to the Mariners?

Tacoma Rainiers

It’s been a weird, wild week in Mariners-land. Despite clinging to a winning record, the team’s offense has utterly cratered and Orioles pitcher John Means took one look at the lineup on Wednesday, licked his chops, and proceeded to throw a dominant no-hitter with 26 out of 27 batters seeing a first pitch strike. The minor leagues are finally back after nearly a year and a half layoff due to COVID-19. We can finally see film of guys we’ve only heard about as they play at the lower levels. The Everett AquaSox roster has perhaps the highest level of raw prospect talent concentration in organization history. The Tacoma Rainiers played their season opener last night with the org’s top prospect headliner Jarred Kelenic taking center stage and oh boy, the dude delivered the goods.

Two no-doubters had Mariners Twitter absolutely giddy and only reinforced the already extremely loud calls for Kelenic to be called up to the Mariners like yesterday.

So I guess let’s do this prop-bet/Vegas-style. We know Kelenic is getting the call soon, but WHEN?

That’s it for FPF this week! Drop your hottest Jarred Kelenic takes in the comments below or argue about the poll results. Let’s hope for better things for the Mariners this weekend as they take on the Texas Rangers in their overgrown Tuff Shed (must credit Kate Preusser) and y’all keep being safe out there!
