Top Mariners News

  • 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' Ty France: Rests after clinching playoffs

  • Mariners' Cal Raleigh: Day off Saturday

    Raleigh isn't in the lineup Saturday against Oakland.

    Raleigh ended the Mariners' 21-year playoff drought with a walkoff home run in the ninth inning Friday, and he'll retreat to the bench for a second consecutive game. Luis Torrens is starting behind the dish and batting cleanup Saturday.

  • Mariners' J.P. Crawford: Resting Saturday

    Crawford isn't starting Saturday against the Athletics.

  • Mariners' Dylan Moore: Logs another steal

    Moore went 1-for-4 with a stolen base, a run scored and three strikeouts in Friday's 2-1 win over the Athletics.

    Moore has found extra success at the plate lately, going 9-for-31 (.290) with six walks in his last 11 games. That's allowed him to be more productive on the basepaths with six steals in that span. He's matched his career high in pilfers with 21 this year while maintaining a .219/.361/.383 slash line through 100 contests.

  • Mariners' Cal Raleigh: Walkoff blast ends playoff drought

    Raleigh hit a solo home run in his only at-bat in Friday's 2-1 win over the Athletics.

    Raleigh put an official end to the Mariners' 21-year playoff drought with his walkoff blast in the ninth inning. The catcher entered the game as a pinch hitter for Luis Torrens. Raleigh has three homers in his last six games, and he's gone deep 26 times this season. The 25-year-old has added a .208/.283/.485 slash line with 62 RBI, 45 runs scored, a stolen base, 20 doubles and a triple through 117 contests.

  • Mariners' Logan Gilbert: Goes eight innings in no-decision

    Gilbert allowed a run on three hits and two walks while striking out four over eight innings in a no-decision versus the Athletics on Friday.

    Gilbert pitched well enough to win, but he didn't get the necessary run support. He allowed more than one run just once in six starts in September, yielding eight runs across 36 innings in that span for an ERA of 2.00. His gem Friday lowered his season ERA to 3.20 with a 1.18 WHIP and 174:49 K:BB through 185.2 innings across 32 starts. He is tentatively lined up for one more regular-season start during next week's series versus the Tigers, though the Mariners may opt to hold him in reserve if he figures into their playoff rotation.

  • Mariners' Cal Raleigh: Sitting Friday

    Raleigh will be on the bench Friday against Oakland.

    Raleigh will hit the bench for the second time in three games, immediately following a stretch in which he started five out of six contests. Luis Torrens will catch for Logan Gilbert on Friday.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Out against lefty

    Winker isn't starting Friday against the Athletics, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Winker will begin Friday's game in the dugout with southpaw Ken Waldichuk set to start for Oakland. While he rests, Sam Haggerty will start in left field and bat eighth.

  • Mariners' Adam Frazier: Sitting versus lefty

    Frazier isn't starting Friday's game against Oakland, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    The 30-year-old second baseman has a .564 OPS this season against left-handed pitchers, so he will sit in the dugout with Ken Waldichuk set to begin the game for the A's. Dylan Moore will fill in for him at second base and lead off the Mariners' lineup.

  • Mariners' Phillips Valdez: Designated for assignment

    Valdez was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Friday, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

    With Brian O'Keefe joining the 40-man roster to fill in for Curt Casali (paternity), Valdez is left as the Mariners' roster casualty. Valdez was claimed off waivers from Boston in July, and he has since recorded a 4.22 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in Triple-A Tacoma. Should he clear waivers, he will likely remain with the organization.

  • Mariners' Curt Casali: Lands on paternity list

    Casali was placed on the paternity list Friday.

    Casali's wife went into labor during Thursday's win over the Rangers, and the catcher will be away from the team for 1-3 days. Brian O'Keefe's contract was selected from Triple-A Tacoma to provide additional depth behind the dish, while Cal Raleigh and Luis Torrens are also available to handle catching duties.

  • Mariners' Brian O'Keefe: Contract officially selected

    O'Keefe's contract was selected from Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.

    O'Keefe was a Rule 5 pick out of the Cardinals organization in 2019 and will join a major-league roster for the first time to provide catching depth while Curt Casali is on the paternity list. It seems unlikely that O'Keefe will see significant playing time since Cal Raleigh and Luis Torrens are also in the fold, and it's possible that O'Keefe heads back to the minors once Casali rejoins the Mariners.

  • Mariners' Brian O'Keefe: Slated to join major-league club

    O'Keefe is expected to be called up by the Mariners on Friday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    O'Keefe slashed .253/.330/.449 with 13 homers, 42 runs, 40 RBI and a stolen base over 83 games at Triple-A Tacoma this season and should provide additional depth behind the dish in the coming days since Curt Casali is expected to be placed on the paternity list. O'Keefe was a Rule 5 pick out of the Cardinals organization in 2019 and hasn't yet made his major-league debut.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Notches eighth win Thursday

    Flexen (8-9) got the win in extra innings over the Rangers on Thursday, allowing an unearned run over one inning without any hits, walks or strikeouts.

    Flexen gave up a sacrifice fly to Marcus Semien that plated phantom runner Leody Taveras with the go-ahead run in the top of the 11th, but the Mariners walked it off in the home half of the frame with singles from Luis Torrens and J.P. Crawford. The veteran right-hander's last win had come July 25 against this same Rangers squad when he was still working as a starter, yet Flexen has adapted well to a relief role by not allowing an earned run across the 9.2 innings covering his last eight appearances.
