Though it’s been clear enough for a few weeks and as close to official without being so, the club has set its starting rotation after optioning Roenis Elias to Triple-A Tacoma. The Mariners also optioned right-handed reliever Carson Smith, which clarifies the bullpen too.
In this week’s episode of The OFP Report, Jason A. Churchill, Alex Carson and Steve Silver discuss the status of the spring position battles, what Chris Taylor’s injury means, as well as answering your questions in this week’s Twitter “T-Bag.”
Jason A. Churchill provides analysis of Taijuan Walker’s latest outing, plus the shortstop position and the bullpen.
It remains early in the process but right-hander Taijuan Walker took another step toward breaking camp with one of five spots in the starting rotation with three strong innings versus the Cleveland Indians Monday afternoon at Peoria Sports Complex
Despite a solid day at the plate for shortstop Chris Taylor, the Mariners could not overcome the Los Angeles Dodgers’ offensive outpouring. Seattle surrendered three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning and could not climb back, falling 7-4, putting their Cactus League record at 2-1.
Barring a change of plans because of injury, the Mariners’ rotation is mostly set before spring begins. Felix Hernandez, Hisashi Iwakuma and James Paxton are set. Newly acquired J.A. Happ will be the fourth arm in the rotation, giving Seattle a second left-handed option.
Jason A. Churchill, Alex Carson and Steve Silver discuss the Seattle Mariners’ budget, their plans at catcher and what they expect from the club in 2015 in terms of wins and losses.
