About Last Night: Tayler Saucedo is leveling up his game, and the Mariners’

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

The Mariners’ gamer-in-residence is now the star of the newest team rally video

Last night, Tayler Saucedo—activated off the IL on Monday—came in to pitch his first game in three weeks. His task: pitch the eighth inning, keeping the Mariners’ deficit at one run while facing the lefty-heavy and powerful top of the Astros lineup. In regular-job terms, this is the equivalent of walking in Monday morning after being off for two weeks and finding your...

Mariners Reacts Survey: Road Trip Blues

Rafael Suanes-USA TODAY Sports

After a rough road trip, can the Mariners right the ship at home?

Welcome to another week of Mariners Reacts, where we gauge the reaction of our readers for no other reason than to feel like we share in the pain together. I hope you had a good Memorial Day weekend Mariner fans; though it was capped with a win, it was led in by an inconsistent road trip fraught with difficulties. While the offense has continued to struggle, no surprises there, the bullpen...

Mariners Closer Proving Invaluable to Their 2024 Hopes

Relief pitchers are often overlooked as key parts of a winning baseball equation. They are seen as hired guns and necessary evils, commonly remembered for the game they cost their team rather than the many times they did their job.

Mariners hope to stay in step against Astros

As a member of the Houston Astros the past three seasons, reliever Ryne Stanek wasn't exactly a fan of the Seattle Mariners' postgame celebrations. The Mariners' outfielders huddle in shallow center field for a dance, while the infielders join together for a different jig.

Mariners beat Houston 4-2, the ugly way, which is more fun

Whimmy wham wham wazzle. Let’s party!

In baseball, as in all things, it doesn’t have to be pretty—it just has to work. In a 162-game season, every team will win a few games in the stupidest ways imaginable and also lose in what are somehow even stupider ways. Once in a while, a team will scramble together a whole run of those wins and you end up with the 2021 Mariners and their Chaos Ball. The Mariners teams since then have been too...

Bros before ‘Stros

Luis Castillo got knocked around a little in his last outing, and while there’s no shame in getting beat up by the Yankees’ offense, it’s a little disheartening for Castillo because he’s dominated them so thoroughly over the past few seasons. It’s not like tonight is a reset, either. He’ll have to face one of the only lineups that could seriously challenge New York for the best in baseball. Here’s hoping he’s a...

Associated Press, San Diego Tribune

Hello Seattle Mariners fans!

Evan James, John Trupin and Zach Mason are here on Monday, May 27th to talk offense? Offense! Bryan Woo is fresh off four sizzling hot starts in a row (while on a pitch count), but how far can he go?

In Mariners news... Mariners top prospect Tyler Locklear has been promoted to Triple-A Tacoma.

Justin Hollander on Tyler Locklear's promotion from Double-A Arkansas to Triple-A Tacoma:

“That ballpark in Arkansas is a tough place to hit, especially for right-handed hitters, and he's gone out destroyed that environment.”

Locklear slashed .291/.401/.532 at Arkansas.

Sometimes you just really want to hear the good old songs

We love T-Mobile Park, with its sweeping skyline views and refreshing sea breeze that wafts in on the hottest summer days and the bustle and chatter of people coming together to watch a ballgame. We also, crucially, are not paid to hit baseballs in T-Mobile Park, which is why the Mariners’ blueprint for years has been to build around strong pitching and solid defense, with juuuuust enough hitting...

Mariners Top 15 Prospect Gets Called Up

It’s been a meteoric rise through the minors for the young slugger

The Mariners announced today that they are promoting 1B Tyler Locklear to Triple-A Tacoma, bringing him one step closer to potentially joining the big-league club after being drafted just two years ago. Locklear was a rare below-the-radar high draft pick coming out of VCU in 2022, a money-saving college pick in the second round, sandwiched between two prep picks in...
