  • Mariners' Ryne Stanek: Takes loss in return Saturday

    Stanek (6-3) was charged with the loss against the Astros on Saturday, allowing two earned runs on two hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning. He struck out one.

    Stanek was making his first appearance since being pulled due to back spasms from an outing against the Angels in the final game before the All-Star break. The right-hander was tasked with preserving a 2-1 lead when entering in the seventh, but he immediately faltered by walking Jeremy Pena and then allowing a go-ahead two-run home run to Jake Meyers. The light-hitting Mariners were never able to make up the deficit, saddling Stanek with his second loss in the last three decisions. Stanek was able to throw 25 pitches overall, so unless reports indicating otherwise emerge, it appears his ineffectiveness Saturday was unrelated to any aggravation of the injury.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Only source of offense Saturday

    Rodriguez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Astros on Saturday.

    Rodriguez was responsible for the only runs of the game for the struggling Mariners, lifting a 382-foot shot to left in the sixth with Victor Robles aboard. The homer was Rodriguez's 11th of the season and fourth since July 4. It also serves as his only hit of the second half thus far across eight plate appearances, after he went into the All-Star break hitting a blistering .591 over his final six games.

  • Mariners' Victor Robles: Swipes two bases Saturday

    Robles went 1-for-3 with a walk, two stolen bases and a run in an loss to the Astros on Saturday.

    Robles drew another start in right field and eventually shifted over to left while notably working out of the No. 2 spot in the order for the first time. The hot-hitting veteran reached double digits in stolen bases for the third time in his career with his pair of swipes, his second multi-steal tally in the last three games. Robles is surging at the plate over the last eight games as well, hitting .444 (8-for-18) with three extra-base hits, two RBI, three walks, five total steals, a hit-by-pitch and four runs in that span. It remains to be seen if Saturday's lineup slotting is an outlier or is replicated in coming days, but Robles' run-scoring opportunities would figure to rise if the latter proves true.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Stuck with no-decision

    Kirby did not factor into the decision in a loss to the Astros on Saturday, allowing one run on four hits over six innings while striking out six.

    Kirby cruised through the first three frames before hitting Alex Bregman with a pitch to lead off the fourth, who would later come around to score on a Jeremy Pena single. That would be the only run allowed by the right-hander on the night as Seattle's offense once again failed to provide him with much in terms of run support. Kirby has now logged eight quality starts in a row, though he has just two wins to show for it - the most recent one coming back on June 26. He's also held his opponents to one earned run in back-to-back starts and now carries a 2.59 ERA in July to go along with a 26:4 K:BB.

  • Mariners' Luke Raley: Not facing southpaw

    Raley is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Astros.

    As per usual, the lefty-hitting Raley will take a seat with a southpaw (Framber Valdez) on the mound. Victor Robles, Julio Rodriguez and Mitch Haniger fill the outfield from left to right.

  • Mariners' Josh Rojas: Idle against lefty

    Rojas is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Astros.

    Left-handed hitters Rojas and Luke Raley will take a seat Saturday with southpaw Framber Valdez on the mound for Houston. Dylan Moore will cover third base Saturday. Rojas is slashing .244/.322/.356 across 301 plate appearances this season.

  • Mariners' Dominic Canzone: Not ready for IL return

    Canzone (thigh), who is first eligible to return from the injured list Saturday, is still recovering according to manager Scott Servais and remains multiple weeks away from beginning a rehab assignment, MLB.com reports.

    The fact the outfielder won't have a minimum-length stay on the IL is unsurprising, given the nature of his injury and the fact there haven't been any reports of Canzone engaging in any type of baseball activities yet. Servais estimated Friday that Canzone is still at least a couple weeks away from being sent down to an affiliate for a rehab assignment, and that timeline could naturally be extended if his recovery doesn't start gathering some momentum soon. While Canzone remains sidelined, Victor Robles could continue drawing the bulk of starts in right field, although Mitch Haniger and Jonatan Clase are also candidates to occasionally slot in.

  • Mariners' Victor Robles: Pair of hits in loss

    Robles went 2-for-3 in a loss to the Astros on Friday.

    Robles drew the start in right field with Dominic Canzone (thigh) starting the second half of the season on the IL, and the veteran contributed the only multi-hit effort on a quiet night for Mariners' bats. Robles has proven a steady contributor when given the opportunity since his arrival to Seattle, as he now boasts a stellar .382 average and 1.050 OPS with five extra-base hits (out of 13 total) in 39 plate appearances. With Canzone still some time away from returning, Robles could continue earning starts at the expense of the struggling Mitch Haniger if Robles keeps producing at the plate.

  • Mariners' Luis Castillo: Quality start in loss

    Castillo (8-10) allowed three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out three over seven innings Friday, taking the loss versus the Astros.

    All of the scoring came in the third inning, when Castillo allowed five straight batters (three hits, one walk, one hit-by-pitch) to reach base. While he was efficient, needing just 90 pitches (58 strikes) to get through seven frames, the Mariners' offense once again gave him little support. Castillo has logged three straight quality starts in July and now sits at a 3.55 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 119:35 K:BB through 124.1 innings over 21 starts this season. He's projected for a favorable home start versus the Angels in his next outing.

  • Mariners' Mike Baumann: DFA'd by Seattle

    The Mariners designated Baumann for assignment Friday.

    The move corresponds with Seattle reinstating left-hander Gabe Speier (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list. Baumann was acquired by the Mariners from the Orioles on May 22 after being initially DFA'd by Baltimore. Across his 18 outings with Seattle, Baumann has posted a 5.51 ERA and 1.29 WHIP across 16.1 innings. He could garner interest from a team looking to add right-handed depth to its bullpen.

  • Mariners' Gabe Speier: Returns from IL

    The Mariners reinstated Speier (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list Friday.

    A left rotator cuff strain sent Speier to the injured list in the beginning of June, and he'll now return to the Mariners' bullpen after throwing two shutout innings during his rehab assignment. The 29-year-old reliever posted a 6.06 ERA and 1.47 WHIP across 16.1 frames before getting hurt, and he'll likely be limited to middle relief. Mike Baumann was DFA'd in a corresponding move.

  • Mariners' Gabe Speier: Scoreless rehab inning Monday

    Speier (shoulder) started the ACL Mariners' loss to the ACL Giants on Monday, firing a scoreless inning during which he allowed a hit and did not record any walks or strikeouts.

    Speier got through the opening frame with minimal trouble while completing his second scoreless inning in as many rehab outings. The left-hander completed the first installment of his assignment with Triple-A Tacoma, and previous reports indicated Speier was likely to be activated ahead of the start of the second half of the season Friday if Monday's appearance didn't produce any setbacks.
