Player Outlook
Seattle acquired Ryan Bliss in the four-player deal that shipped Paul Sewald to Arizona. The infielder scorched Double-A pitching to the tune of .358/.414/.594, and while he initially struggled in Triple-A, a hot finish allowed him to finish with an OPS of .822 in Tacoma over 226 plate appearances while finishing with 55 stolen bases for good measure. Despite a less-than-prototypical frame, Bliss has been able to tap into more power than expected when he was drafted with the 42nd pick in 2021, and he makes enough hard contact to all parts of the field to believe he can hit for a high average, as well. He isn't likely to make the Opening Day roster, but Bliss has a good chance of making his MLB debut in 2024, and there's certainly a chance for fantasy relevance in the coming seasons.

  • Mariners' Ryan Bliss: Working out in outfield

    Bliss tracked flyballs in left field during batting practice prior to Monday's game versus the Rays, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Bliss has played only second base and shortstop since entering pro ball and starts at those spots figure to be few and far between with J.P. Crawford holding down shortstop and Jorge Polanco (hamstring) back off the injured list to cover second base. The Mariners elected to keep Bliss on the roster after Polanco's activation, so perhaps they will give him some reps in the outfield. Bliss has acquitted himself well during his first go-round in the majors in slashing .265/.345/.429 over 21 contests.

  • Mariners' Ryan Bliss: Set to lose out with Polanco back

    Bliss is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rays. Bliss had started at the keystone in each of the Mariners' last four games, but his playing time will likely fall by the wayside with Seattle bringing back Jorge Polanco (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list Monday. Polanco won't be eased back in as a designated hitter Monday and will take back his usual spot in the field at second base.

  • Mariners' Ryan Bliss: Tallies three hits again Saturday

    Bliss went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a run and two RBI in a 9-0 victory versus Miami on Saturday. Bliss plated a run with a fourth-inning single and wrapped up the scoring in the contest with an RBI double in the eighth. It was the second consecutive three-hit game for the infielder after he went 3-for-3 with an RBI on Friday. Prior to the pair of three-hit contests, Bliss had needed 19 at-bats over nine games to collect his previous three base knocks. While he offers some intriguing upside on the basepaths -- Bliss swiped 28 bags in 50 games at Triple-A prior to his late-May call-up and has four thefts in five attempts over 20 contests in the majors -- it's not clear what role he might have with the Mariners when Jorge Polanco (hamstring) returns from the IL.

  • Mariners' Ryan Bliss: Records steal as pinch runner

    Bliss entered Tuesday's win over the Athletics as a pinch runner in the top of the eighth inning and recorded a steal of second base. He did not log a subsequent plate appearance. The speedy rookie is already up to three swipes over his first six big-league games, with those numbers coming on the heels of a 28-for-34 showing in the steals department at Triple-A Tacoma. Bliss has seen only one ball drop in thus far over his 15 plate appearances, but he's maintained a presence on the basepaths and set himself up for stolen-base opportunities by also drawing four walks in that span.

  • Mariners' Ryan Bliss: Swipes two bases Saturday

    Bliss went 1-for-2 with two walks, two stolen bases and three runs in a 9-0 win against the Angels on Saturday. Bliss made a big contribution from the No. 9 slot in the batting order, reaching base three times and scoring three of the Mariners' nine runs. The infielder probably wasn't in many fantasy lineups, but he made a big impact for managers who rolled with him by swiping a pair of bags. Speed is a big part of Bliss's game -- he swiped 28 bags in 50 games for Triple-A Tacoma this season after stealing 55 bases in 70 attempts in the minors last year.

  • Diamondbacks' Ryan Bliss: Earns org's monthly player award

    Bliss earned the Diamondbacks' minor league Player of the Month award for April, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Bliss hit .410 (1.050 OPS) with eight doubles, two triples, two home runs, 14 RBI and eight stolen bases over 18 games at Double-A Amarillo. The shortstop hasn't stopped hitting in May, collecting two homers and five RBI with a .919 OPS through five games. It's a huge turnaround for the organization's second-round pick in the 2021 draft, who hit .214 with a .641 OPS last year for High-A Hillsboro. Bliss opted to grind through the season instead of working on his swing at the team's training facility and performed better, hitting .262 (.818 OPS) over July and August.
