  1. Mariners activate Mike Carp from disabled list

    May 1, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Mike Carp

    Miguel Olivo‘s groin injury opens up a roster spot and the timing works for the Mariners to fill it by activating Mike Carp from the disabled list. Carp began the season as Seattle’s starting left fielder, but lasted just one game before suffering a shoulder injury and has been on the DL since. He figures…

  2. Miguel Olivo expects to miss extended time with groin injury

    May 1, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

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

    Miguel Olivo had to be helped off the field last night after suffering a groin injury, saying afterward that it was worse than the groin injury that caused him to miss three weeks last spring. Olivo told Greg Johns of MLB.com that he “felt a pop” while trying to make a play at first base…

  3. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    May 1, 2012, 5:56 AM EDT

    Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish gestures to fans during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Rangers 4, Blue Jays 1: I think it’s safe to say that, after a couple of rocky starts to begin the year, Yu Darvish is starting to get comfortable. He struck out nine Blue Jays while giving up a single run in seven innings. The homer was by the incredibly hot Edwin Encarnacion, who has…

    Some pretty bad news for the Yankees’ young starter, who had an MRI yesterday: Pineda has a tear in his labrum. Arthroscopic surgery scheduled for next Tuesday — Mark Feinsand (@BloggingBombers) April 25, 2012 Jon Heyman just tweeted that the tear is “pretty severe.” The labrum — which is in the shoulder — is not…

    From MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch comes word that Yankees right-hander Michael Pineda is scheduled to visit with Dr. David Altchek on Wednesday in New York for a second opinion on his ailing shoulder. Pineda underwent an extensive dye-contract MRI on Tuesday, the results of which won’t be revealed until Altcheck gets a look at them Wednesday.…

  6. Philip Humber is perfect. The Mariners are anything but.

    Apr 21, 2012, 6:44 PM EDT

    Philip Humber

    While most of the baseball-loving nation was forced to watch another a typical Red Sox-Yankees four-hour marathon, Philip Humber threw the 21st perfect game in big-league history Saturday in the White Sox’s 4-0 win over the Mariners. The perfect game is largely the providence of great pitchers, but Humber is certainly more Dallas Braden than…

  7. Catching: The toughest job in sports

    Apr 4, 2012, 9:38 AM EDT

    spt-4x3-posey-120403.standard[1]

    During a week-long stint at spring training in Arizona this year, I spent a lot of time with catchers. I learned a lot about their craft, about what they go through on a daily basis. About the stresses of the job, the grind of the six-month long season, as well as the non-stop mental challenges…

  8. Jesus Montero exits game after being hit in the helmet by a pitch

    Apr 2, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Chicago Cubs

    The Mariners were given quite the scare earlier this afternoon when Jesus Montero was hit in the helmet by a pitch from Rockies’ right-hander Edgmer Escalona. Yes, the Rockies. Plenty of drama for them in the 24 hours for them, huh? Montero immediately fell to the ground, but quickly got to his feet and began…

  9. Michael Pineda complains of sore shoulder after rough night

    Mar 30, 2012, 10:18 PM EDT

    Michael Pineda

    Update: Pineda complained of shoulder soreness after his outing tonight and will undergo an MRI on Saturday. It’s still not official, but now it seems pretty certain that he won’t be in the rotation to start the year. /// Michael Pineda is already hearing the boo-birds in pinstripes, without even having pitched in a regular-season…

  10. Wait, Michael Pineda may not make the Yankees rotation now?

    Mar 30, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    New York Yankees starter Pineda warms up on the mound during the first inning of a spring training baseball game against the Philadelphia Phillies in Clearwater

    There has been an insane amount of attention paid to Michael Pineda this spring. First his weight, then his velocity. Now, if you can believe it, there are questions about whether he even makes the team: To answer some questions: I think there is a better chance than not that Pineda is in rotation, but…

  11. Springtime Storylines: Can the Seattle Mariners score any runs?

    Mar 26, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Chicago Cubs

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season. Up next: the Seattle Mariners. The Big Question: Can they score any runs? In case you forgot, the Mariners had a historically…

  12. Adam Moore expected to miss 3-4 weeks with wrist injury

    Mar 9, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    moore_adam

    Adam Moore‘s wrist injury from Tuesday is less serious than initially feared and the Mariners catcher is hoping to be ready for game action within 3-4 weeks. Immediate reports pegged the injury as a fracture, but Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times now says “a more detailed scan … found that he merely had a…

  13. Adam Moore breaks wrist after missing last season with knee injury

    Mar 8, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Felix Hernandez, Adam Moore

    Mariners catcher Adam Moore, a former top prospect who missed nearly all of last season with a knee injury suffered in his second game, broke his right wrist Tuesday when a ball in the dirt struck his throwing hand. There’s no word yet on how long the Mariners expect Moore to be sidelined, but he’s…

  14. Mariners hit five homers to win Cactus League opener

    Mar 2, 2012, 6:14 PM EDT

    Carlos Peguero, Jesus Montero

    The Phillies played Florida St. on Wednesday and there were three more exhibitions between Florida-based MLB teams and colleges today, but the spring season officially started later in the afternoon, with the Mariners and A’s squaring off in the Cactus League opener. As one would assume with such noted powerhouses playing each other, there were…

  15. Can Jesus Montero catch? He’s motivated to show he can

    Feb 28, 2012, 11:42 PM EDT

    montero-jesus-120228

    PEORIA, Ariz. – There are some who say Jesus Montero will never be a quality major league catcher. Analysts who rush to praise his quick, powerful bat are equally quick to pan his defensive skills. His receiving is poor, his footwork worse, they say. He’s too big (6-3, 235), and not athletic enough to play…

  16. Yankees to force Michael Pineda, Ivan Nova to compete for rotation spots

    Feb 28, 2012, 5:47 PM EDT

    Phil Hughes, CC Sabathia, Ivan Nova, Hiroki Kuroda

    With A.J. Burnett gone, expectations were that it would come down to Freddy Garcia and Phil Hughes for one spot in the Yankee rotation. Manager Joe Girardi has other ideas, though, announcing Tuesday that CC Sabathia and Hiroki Kuroda were his only starters guaranteed spots. That leaves Michael Pineda and Ivan Nova competing for jobs.…

  17. Running down the rosters: Seattle Mariners

    Feb 21, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    The Mariners have finished in last place in the AL West six of the last eight years, and while their is a shining ray of hope on the way in 2013 in the form of the Astros, they’re going to have a tough time not making it seven of nine years this season. Rotation Felix…

  18. Keith Law releases his annual top 100 prospects list

    Feb 9, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Mike Trout

    I look forward to this every year: Keith Law has released his annual 100 top prospects list.  Yes, it’s only for those with an Insider subscription, but at the risk of promoting the business of a competing sports network/conglomerate, I would submit to you that Law’s work is worth the price of a subscription itself,…

  19. The Yankees are in “serious discussions” with Raul Ibanez

    Feb 6, 2012, 7:29 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Arizona Diamondbacks

    It’s almost closing time for MLB’s Hot Stove and folks are beginning to get desperate. We’re seeing minor league deals all over the place and players who once were seeking multi-year contracts are now settling for one-year deals. Many speculated that the Yankees would be in the market for a hitter after trading Jesus Montero…

  20. 2012 projections: top 10 catchers

    Feb 5, 2012, 9:14 PM EDT

    Buster Posey

    I’ll save the fantasy projections for the Rotoworld Draft Guide, but here are my top catchers for 2012 going by OPS: .878 - Buster Posey – Giants – 486 AB – .756 in 2011 .868 – Mike Napoli – Rangers – 413 AB – 1.046 in 2011 .867 – Carlos Santana – Indians – 524 AB –…

  21. The Mariners tried to trade Michael Pineda for Brett Lawrie

    Jan 31, 2012, 9:50 AM EDT

    Blue Jays' Lawrie acknowledges cheering crowds after he hit a walk off home run to beat the Red Sox in the eleventh inning of their American League MLB baseball game in Toronto

    The Michael Pineda-for-Jesus Montero trade was pretty cool in that we don’t see tons of young-pitcher-for-young-slugger trades that don’t involve payroll things, impending free agency or any of that.  But it could have been way cooler. Well, at least if you’re a Mariners fan. As Jeff Blair of the Globe and Mail reports, the Blue…

  22. Miguel Olivo is in the Best Shape of His Life

    Jan 30, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Miguel Olivo

    I know some of you don’t like these posts, but if it helps, I don’t do this because I enjoy it. I do it because I feel I am providing an invaluable service.  In other words, I may not be the lazy meme-perpetuator that Gotham wants, but I am the lazy meme-perpetuator that Gotham needs.…

  23. Dropping Ichiro in order not the answer for the Mariners

    Jan 26, 2012, 6:55 PM EDT

    Ichiro Suzuki

    Manager Eric Wedge said Thursday that he’s probably going to try Ichiro Suzuki somewhere other than at the top of the order this season. “It’s as much to do with his teammates as it has to do with him with regard to the collective nine that we’re putting down on paper,” Wedge said. “I haven’t…

    The Seattle Mariners remain in a transition phase, attempting to undo the messes of Bill Bavasi while playing in a beefed up AL West division that includes two teams — the Rangers and Angels — that are throwing money around like they just got some magic pants. A big part of that transition will involve…

  25. Jesus Montero-for-Michael Pineda swap is finally official

    UPDATE: Montero passed his physical, so it’s now a done deal. ========== The multi-player deal between the Yankees and Mariners headlined by Jesus Montero and Michael Pineda is moving closer to completion. Montero was delayed from taking a physical due to weather, plane and visa problems in his native Venezuela, but Larry Stone of the…
