  • Mariners' George Kirby: Struggles in first spring start

    Kirby didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's Cactus League tie with the Giants, allowing four runs (three earned) on four hits over 1.1 innings.

    The talented right-hander was spotted an early 2-0 lead courtesy of Mitch Garver's home run in the top of the first, but Kirby quickly squandered it by allowing an RBI single to LaMonte Wade and then loading the bases. Kirby was pulled for Jarod Bayless, who promptly surrendered a grand slam to Patrick Bailey, before coming back out for the second inning and tossing a scoreless frame. Per MLB.com, Kirby faced nine hitters and hit 95 mph on his fastball while also working in plenty of breaking pitches.

  • Mariners' Mitch Garver: Slugs first Mariners homer

    Garver went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in the Mariners' Cactus League tie with the Giants on Tuesday.

    The offseason addition belted a Jordan Hicks offering in the first inning into the left field seats with Dylan Moore aboard to give Seattle an early 2-0 lead. The hit marked Garver's first in what was his second Cactus League game, and making it all the more impressive was it came off one of Hicks' signature triple-digit sinkers, per Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle. Garver drew the start at designated hitter, where he's expected to log nearly all his playing time in 2024.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Continues improving Tuesday

    Rodriguez (hand) played catch in the outfield with Ichiro Suzuki on Tuesday and is feeling "much, much better" according to manager Scott Servais, MLB.com reports.

    Rodriguez also did some batting cage work and echoed his manager's sentiments, saying in passing that he was feeling "all good" from the minor inflammation on the back of his left hand. Servais added that he felt Rodriguez, who engaged in intense training this offseason, was still on target for a potential Cactus League debut by the weekend, adding he had trust in the team's medical staff to give the green light to the star outfielder at the appropriate time.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Taking flips in batting cage

    Rodriguez (hand) will take flips in the batting cage Tuesday, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.

    Rodriguez is considered day-to-day while dealing with some inflammation in the top of his left hand. The hope is that he will be ready to return to game action before the end of this week, but the Mariners won't push him this early in spring training.

  • Mariners' Gregory Santos: Resuming throwing program Tuesday

    Santos (lat) will resume a throwing program Tuesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Santos has been slowed this spring by some soreness in his right lat, which cropped up during an early bullpen session. He's made the necessary progress to be cleared to throw again and will presumably start with some flat-ground work before progressing to the mound and facing hitters. Santos has time to be ready for Opening Day but can't afford a setback.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Day-to-day with hand inflammation

    Manager Scott Servais said Monday that Rodriguez is battling some inflammation in the top of the left hand, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.

    The Mariners believe the star outfielder just overdid it with too many swings in the batting cage. Rodriguez had the hand checked out and was cleared of any serious injury. He's expected to rest for the next few days but should be ready to return to Cactus League play by this weekend.

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Homers in first spring at-bat

    Haniger started at designated hitter and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in the Mariners' Cactus League loss to the Guardians on Sunday.

    Haniger sent a Tyler Beede offering into the bullpen in the first inning, his first official at-bat since returning to the Mariners this winter after a one-year sabbatical in San Francisco. Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports Haniger's shot had 108 mph of exit velocity and a distance of 384 feet, certainly encouraging for a veteran that was riddled with injuries in 2023. The outfielder has already expressed his satisfaction with being back in Seattle, and he's been working extensively with a familiar face in director of hitting strategy Jarret DeHart, who was on staff during Haniger's initial Mariners tenure, and a new hire in offensive coordinator Brant Brown.

  • Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Ready for spring action

    Haniger (back) is batting second as the designated hitter for Sunday's spring game against the Guardians.

    The veteran outfielder finished 2023 on the injured list with a back strain, but he's good to go early in spring training. Haniger had a career-worst .631 OPS in just 61 games with the Giants last season as he also dealt with oblique and forearm issues, but the Mariners are hoping for better injury luck in 2024 after acquiring him for Robbie Ray (elbow).

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Pauses throwing due to arm issue

    Brash hasn't thrown since Tuesday and will remain shut down through the weekend after he said his right arm "just didn't feel great" the day after a bullpen session, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

    Brash's bullpen session Tuesday was his second this spring, and he didn't bounce back as hoped Wednesday. He's been doing daily rehab and lifting weights, and the M's believe he will be able to resume a throwing program next week. For what it's worth, Brash said he's dealt with something similar in the past and is not concerned. It's a worrisome development, but there's plenty of time for him to get back up to speed before Opening Day. The Mariners are also currently without fellow setup man Gregory Santos (lat), so there could be some early-season hold opportunities available for other relievers.

  • Mariners' Brian Anderson: Joins Mariners as NRI

    Anderson signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Friday that includes an invite to big-league camp, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    The 30-year-old struggled to a .678 OPS in 96 games with Milwaukee last season and was released by the club in early October. Anderson would provide depth at third base and right field if he makes the roster, though his most likely position would be the hot corner since Luis Urias likely doesn't have a firm grip on the starting role.

  • Mariners' Trevor Kelley: Latches on with Seattle

    Kelley signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Kelley has been knocked around in parts of four major-league seasons, collecting a 6.75 ERA and 45:21 K:BB over 50.2 frames. The 31-year-old figures to begin the 2024 season at Triple-A Tacoma as relief depth.

  • Mariners' Bryan Woo: Trying to improve versus lefty bats

    Woo, who logged 18 starts as a rookie in 2023, is focusing on improving considerably against left-handed hitters in his second season, Brandon Gustafson of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    The right-hander, who made the jump straight from the Double-A level to the majors, finished with a 4-5 record and serviceable 4.21 ERA and 1.21 WHIP across his first 87.2 big-league frames. However, Woo had some drastic splits, surrendering a .283 average and .928 OPS in 180 plate appearances versus left-handed bats, numbers exponentially worse than the respective .179 and .494 figures he surrendered to righty bats. Woo, who's penciled in as the Mariners' No. 5 starter as spring camp gets underway, says he is absorbing plenty from two other accomplished young arms above him in the rotation in George Kirby and Logan Gilbert, who already have solid major-league resumes.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Makes changes to swing in offseason

    France, who posted his least productive batting line since his rookie 2019 season in 2023, made changes to his swing this offseason for the first time in his career, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    France's struggles actually began during the latter portion of the 2022 campaign, and given the extended period of below-average performance, the veteran decided to seek out the counsel of Driveline Baseball this offseason. The 29-year-old says the company's biometric data was able to identify where his swing had gone wrong, including pinpointing that he was overusing his hands and that his sequencing from the ground up was very inefficient. France says he's added close to 3.5 mph of bat speed this offseason with the corrections he's been able to make, and manager Scott Servais has been encouraged by what he's seen from France thus far. "I think he looks great," Servais said. "I know it's going to pay off for him when it's going to click, but I know it's going quick. He can hit, he's got track record of it. Being in the best shape he's been in his life, that's part of it, too."

  • Mariners' Luis Urias: Working back from shoulder issue

    Urias has resumed workouts following a shutdown period due to right shoulder inflammation, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.

    Urias was diagnosed with inflammation after reporting to camp early a couple weeks ago. The good news is that testing came back negative and he has since been cleared for workouts. It's possible the Mariners will ease Urias into Cactus League play, but it does not appear this will interrupt his availability for the start of the season.

  • Mariners' Gregory Santos: Should start throwing soon

    Mariners manager Scott Servais said Monday that Santos (lat) is progressing and will begin ramping up his throwing program in the coming days, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Seattle isn't yet ruling Santos out for Opening Day as he works through right lat soreness, but he'll likely need to navigate his upcoming throwing program without setbacks in order to guarantee that he avoids a stint on the injured list to begin his inaugural campaign with the Mariners. Santos was acquired from the White Sox earlier this month with the expectation that he would be a dependable part of the bridge to projected closer Andres Munoz, coming off a 2023 campaign in which he compiled a 3.39 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and a 66:17 K:BB in 66.1 innings.
