    Dec 6, 2012, 12:21 AM EST

    Justin Upton

    FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal says that while the four-team Justin Upton talks are going nowhere fast, they’re not yet dead, not with Rangers GM Jon Daniels working hard to keep them alive. Rosenthal reports that the Mariners have replaced the Rays as the fourth team involved in talks. They would likely get Rangers left-hander Derek Holland…

    Justin Upton

    CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman reports that the Mariners and Diamondbacks met tonight to discuss Justin Upton. Heyman’s report is just a tweet, so there are no details on the meeting. Heyman does, however, speculate on whether an offer of top prospect Taijuan Walker and Nick Franklin might be enough get a deal done. Such a package…

  3. The Adam LaRoche market isn’t so hot and heavy after all

    Dec 3, 2012, 5:47 PM EST

    Adam LaRoche

    The Nationals would very much like to keep free agent Adam LaRoche, but they’re sticking to their guns at the moment and only offering a two-year deal. Fortunately for them, it may yet be enough to get a deal done. According to Danny Knobler of CBSSports.com, the Rangers are not purusing LaRoche, and MLB.com’s Brittany…

  4. Report: Mariners, Orioles targeting Billy Butler

    Dec 3, 2012, 1:22 PM EST

    Billy Butler

    Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star says both the Mariners and Orioles are showing strong interest in Royals designated hitter Billy Butler. Dutton sees the Mariners as the more likely trade partner, what with their stockpile of arms that includes Danny Hultzen, Taijuan Walker and James Paxton. The Orioles also have some arms to…

    Mike Napoli

    I don’t trust Jim Bowden for rumors, but it’s not as though anyone else is making baseball news on Thanksgiving.

    It’s getting to be that time of year, so here is the first of two stabs at a Top 111 free agents list. The other will come shortly after the World Series concludes. Players are ranked based on how I believe teams perceive them, not how I view them myself. Essentially, I rank the players…

  8. A Felix Hernandez trade would help Mariners, not hurt them

    Aug 16, 2012, 6:14 PM EST

    Felix Hernandez

    So, yeah, the response to Wednesday’s “Seattle should probably trade Felix Hernandez” column wasn’t entirely positive. I understand it was a case of raining on the parade, and I’m sorry about that. Still, it was an angle of the story that needed to be covered. Now that I’ve had a day to think more on…

  9. Mariners grant Justin Smoak another look

    Aug 14, 2012, 6:23 PM EST

    Justin Smoak

    It could be do-or-die time for Justin Smoak. With Mike Carp returning to the disabled list because of a strained groin, the Mariners brought Smoak back to the majors on Tuesday. He’ll likely play regularly at first base as the team tries to determine whether to include him in its plans for 2013. Smoak hit…

    Rajai Davis

    Blue Jays 10, Yankees 7: Holy frijole, did you see Rajai Davis’ catch, robbing Casey McGehee of a home run in the seventh? The guy is like 5”9″ and the wall is like ten feet and he went Spud Webb on that bad boy. Or Spiderman. Or something. Just wow. Otherwise, the Jays beat the tar out…

  11. Mariners end Jered Weaver’s long winning streak

    Aug 12, 2012, 6:50 PM EST

    Jesus Montero

    Jesus Montero took the normally unbeatable Jered Weaver deep twice Sunday as the Mariners topped the Angels in Anaheim 4-1. Weaver entered the day having won nine straight starts. He was 8-0 with a 0.92 ERA at home this year and 15-1 with a 2.13 ERA overall. His only previous defeat came in Texas back…

  12. Mariners send down .189-hitting Justin Smoak

    Jul 24, 2012, 1:37 AM EST

    Justin Smoak

    The Mariners have finally seen enough; Justin Smoak was demoted after a fourth straight hitless game Monday in the loss to the Yankees. He was 1-for-20 with 12 strikeouts over his previous six games, dropping his average to .189. In truth, the Mariners likely would have sent Smoak to Triple-A  few weeks ago had they…

    Chicago White Sox v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 3, White Sox 1: All Cody Ross does is hit three-run homers. The walkoff one here was his third in two days. Mets 9, Nationals 5: David Wright his a two-run and a three-run homer. He’s like a poor-man’s Cody Ross! R.A. Dickey is the first player in the NL to notch 13…

    Every year Scott Miller of CBS Sports.com puts out his version of the Razzies to Major League Baseball’s Oscars.

  15. Mariners dump Hector Noesi from the rotation to Triple-A

    Jul 5, 2012, 3:15 PM EST

    Boston Red Sox v Seattle Mariners

    Hector Noesi won a spot in the Mariners’ rotation during spring training after coming over from the Yankees in the Jesus Montero-for-Michael Pineda swap, but after going 2-11 with a 5.77 ERA in 17 starts he’s headed back to the minors. Noesi is 25 years old and still has a future as a potential fourth…

  16. Is it time for Mariners to demote Dustin Ackley, Justin Smoak to Triple-A?

    Jun 28, 2012, 12:43 PM EST

    Dustin Ackley, Justin Smoak

    Thanks in large part to Kyle Seager and Michael Saunders, the Mariners offense hasn’t been as bad as expected this year. The team is struggling mightily right now, though, having scored just four runs in four games, and if changes are going to come, this would seem to be right part of the schedule to…

  17. Michael Pineda won’t be cleared to throw before September

    Michael Pineda Reuters

    While in town to be examined by team doctors yesterday Michael Pineda made a surprise appearance in the Yankees clubhouse, hanging out with the new teammates he barely got to know before undergoing shoulder surgery in April. Pineda described himself as “feeling better right now” but was also quick to note that he hasn’t been…

    Mariners no-hitter Getty

    Kevin Millwood, Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League and Tom Wilhelmsen combined for a no-hitter in a 1-0 victory over the Dodgers last night. It was the 10th combined no-hitter in major league history and the first since six Astros combined to no-hit the Yankees on June 11, 2003. It was the third…

  19. First-round winners and losers from the MLB draft

    Marcus Stroman

    Sure, one generally has to wait four or five years to really sit back and analyze how a draft turned out. But why let that stop us from picking some winners and losers from Monday evening’s first round. Winners Dodgers – Corey Seager will likely prove to be a tough sign, but the high school…

  20. MLB draft picks 2-5: Mariners take catcher Mike Zunino

    Mike Zunino

    No. 2 – Minnesota Twins – high school OF Byron Buxton The Astros pulled off a surprise pick and left Mark Appel on the board, but the Twins stuck with the guy most expected them to take. Buxton, 18, is a pure center fielder with a big-time arm — he just had an 18-strikeout game…

  21. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 31, 2012, 5:45 AM EST

    Seattle Mariners v Texas Rangers

    Mariners 21, Rangers 8: Look, we can point to Justin Smoak driving in a half dozen runs, Jesus Montero nearly hitting for the cycle or any number of other things as being the cause of this bloodbath. But the fact is, Derek Holland shaved his mustache the other day, and there is likely a causal…

    May 24, 2012, 5:17 PM EST

    Mariners catcher Olivo grimaces with an injury during their MLB American League baseball game against the Rays in St. Petersburg, Florida

    Miguel Olivo is back from the disabled list after missing the past four weeks with a groin injury and the Mariners created a spot on the roster for his return by optioning outfielder Casper Wells to Triple-A. That means, despite some speculation to the contrary and plenty of fans calling for his job, Chone Figgins…

    If I missed something important in one of these it’s because I was less plugged-in than usual yesterday. My daughter Mookie had her dance recital. Both ballet and jazz, which required me to sit through two (2)  separate shows. I kid you not: four hours of sitting in an auditorium to watch eight minutes of…

  24. Great Moments in Bad Defense: the Seattle Mariners

    May 17, 2012, 10:00 AM EST

    Seattle Mariners v Cleveland Indians

    It’s hard to find an uglier all-around play than this one in last night’s Indians-Mariners game.  It started with a double steal that seemed to confuse Jesus Montero. And then the confusion was compounded when he and his teammates decided to throw the baseball all over the place. But check out the hustle on Carlos…

  25. Andy Pettitte allows four runs in return to major leagues

    May 13, 2012, 3:27 PM EST

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Andy Pettitte took the mound Sunday at Yankee Stadium for the first time since October 18, 2010. What followed was a good but not great reunion. After opening with 3 2/3 innings of hitless ball against the Mariners, Pettitte surrendered a walk to Jesus Montero with two outs in the fourth inning and Justin Smoak…
