  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Coming to camp as reliever

    President of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto said Brash will be competing for a relief role on Seattle's Opening Day roster during spring training, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Brash began last season as a member of Seattle's rotation before moving to the bullpen in May after being roughed up through his first five starts. He turned in much better results as a reliever (2.35 ERA, 1.24 WHIP in 30.2 innings), but Seattle was still expected to entertain the idea of letting the 24-year-old audition for a rotation spot heading into 2023. However, with Brash set to spend some time away from the Mariners' spring camp while pitching for Team Canada in the World Baseball Classic, Dipoto suggested that the right-hander won't be built up for starting duty and will instead continue to work out of the bullpen. If Brash doesn't gain traction in a high-leverage gig out of the big-league bullpen early in the season, the Mariners could send him to the minors and transition him back to a starting role.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Will remain reliever in 2023

    Brash will continue to pitch in relief in 2023, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Timesreports.

    Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto told reporters that Brash continuing to pitch in relief is part of the agreement made between the two when Brash asked to pitch for Team Canada in the World Baseball Classic. After making the move to the bullpen, the right-hander impressed with a 2.35 ERA, and 43:16 K:BB over 34 appearances. Brash isn't likely to get save opportunities in 2023, but he's someone to have on the fantasy radar because of his elite potential to miss bats.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Gets fourth win Friday

    Brash (4-4) got the win over the Athletics on Friday, firing a scoreless ninth inning during which he recorded two strikeouts.

    Brash was exceedingly sharp while getting seven of his eight pitches in for strikes, and he was rewarded with his fourth win of the season when Cal Raleigh slugged a pinch hit home run that sent the Mariners home with a win and an AL wild-card berth. Except for one stumble against the Royals on Sept. 25, Brash has been nearly flawless since mid-August, turning in scoreless efforts in 18 of his 19 trips to the mound during that span.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Takes fourth loss Sunday

    Brash (3-4) took the loss against the Rangers on Sunday, allowing two earned runs on two hits and a wild pitch over two-thirds of an inning.

    Brash's control has been one of his Achilles heels thus far in his professional career, and that surfaced somewhat again Sunday. Entrusted with preserving a 3-3 tie when he entered in the seventh, Brash retired Josh Smith and Marcus Semien to open the frame before surrendering a double to Corey Seager, advancing him to third on a wild pitch and subsequently conceding an RBI single to Adolis Garcia. He was also charged post-exit with the run Garcia scored on the double Erik Swanson surrendered to Nathaniel Lowe, making it the first time Brash had given up multiple earned runs in an outing since his May 4 against the Astros.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Multi-inning effort for third win

    Brash (3-3) picked up the victory in an extra-innings win over the Yankees on Tuesday, firing two scoreless frames in which he didn't allow any hits, issued two walks and recorded three strikeouts.

    While his location wasn't always the sharpest, Brash navigated the 12th and 13th innings successfully over a total of 29 pitches. The right-hander has now put together six consecutive scoreless relief appearances since being recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on July 28, a sample of 6.1 innings.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Rejoining big club

    The Mariners recalled Brash from Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday.

    Brash will begin his third stint of the season with the big club, serving as a reliever for the second straight time after he had previously been part of the Mariners' Opening Day rotation. Seattle could revisit the idea of developing Brash as a starter in 2023, but for the remainder of the current campaign, the hard-throwing right-hander looks like he'll be a full-time member of the bullpen. Before being optioned to Tacoma on Tuesday, Brash made five relief appearances for Seattle, covering 5.1 innings and striking out six while allowing two earned runs on five hits and four walks. He was eligible to rejoin the Mariners two days after being optioned since Seattle placed fellow reliever Diego Castillo (shoulder) on the 15-day injured list.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Optioned to Triple-A

    Brash was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.

    Brash will return to Triple-A after he appeared in five games following a promotion July 9, surrendering two runs on five hits and four walks while striking out six over 5.1 innings. The right-hander remains one of the Mariners' top prospects and will likely return to the big leagues at some point down the line.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Gets second win Saturday

    Brash (2-3), recalled from Triple-A Tacoma earlier in the day, secured the win over the Blue Jays on Saturday, firing a perfect seventh inning during which he recorded two strikeouts.

    The starter-turned-reliever worked up to 25 pitches in his one frame, but that was largely due to a 13-pitch encounter with Lourdes Gurriel that included nine foul balls but ultimately culminated in a strikeout. Brash proved well-suited for relief work during his just-concluded 22-appearance stint with the Rainiers, with the bullpen role seemingly helping him to harness his unpredictable control somewhat better.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Returns in relief role

    Brash was recalled by the Mariners on Saturday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Brash made the Mariners' Opening Day rotation and flashed impressive stuff at times, but he would up being demoted after struggling to a 7.65 ERA and 17.9 percent walk rate in five starts. He's pitched exclusively out of the bullpen in 26 innings for Triple-A Tacoma, where his 38.3 percent strikeout rate has been enough to offset a 13.1 percent walk rate, leading to a 3.46 ERA. He should continue to pitch in relief for the big-league club.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Showing improvement at Tacoma

    Brash has gone 11 straight relief outings of an inning apiece at Triple-A Tacoma without allowing an earned run, Brent Stecker of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Brash was knocked around for five earned runs over one inning by Sacramento back on May 22, but he began his current scoreless streak in his next outing May 25. The promising right-hander opened the season as the Mariners' fifth starter before control issues lead to a May 5 demotion to Tacoma, where he's transitioned to the bullpen after the team decided it would be the role he'd be best suited for this season. Stecker notes Brash hasn't allowed so much as a single walk in 10 of the aforementioned 11 appearances, including six straight.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Abysmal in latest minors outing

    Brash yielded five earned runs on two home runs, three walks and two wild pitches over one inning in Triple-A Tacoma's loss to Sacramento on Sunday. He struck out one.

    Brash had produced some encouraging results in his first four trips to the mound for the Rainiers following a May 5 demotion from the Mariners, but Sunday's outing highlighted the two biggest culprits in his getting sent down in the first place. Brash allowed three- and two-run homers during his one frame and had severe issues with his control, which evoked memories of the 1.4 HR/9 and 7.7 BB/9 he generated across five starts before getting booted off the big-league roster. The right-hander figures to continue working out of Tacoma's bullpen for the time being while he further refines his game.
