    Josh Bell, who twice cracked Baseball America‘s top 100 prospects list and was traded from the Dodgers to the Orioles for George Sherrill in mid-2009, has been designated for assignment. Baltimore dropped Bell from the 40-man roster to make room for catcher Luis Exposito, whom they claimed off waivers from Boston. Exposito is a 26-year-old…

  2. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 16, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Houston Astros v Miami Marlins

    Marlins 5, Astros 4: Omar Infante and Hanley Ramirez hit home runs, finally putting that crazy home run sculpture into action. Somehow we all survived, though I’m not ruling out the possibility that we all got thrown into an alternate timeline or something and won’t truly realize it until all the crazy occult stuff starts…

  3. Mike Cameron signs one-day “employment contract” to retire with Mariners

    Tim Hudson AP

    From Carroll Rogers of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution comes word that Tim Hudson allowed five runs on nine hits over four innings tonight in his second minor league rehab start with Class A Rome. That’s a pretty ugly line, but Rogers notes that he was the victim of a “ton of seeing-eye stuff.” On the bright…

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

    Apr 12, 2012, 6:05 AM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 5, Royals 4: Jonathan Broxton walked two batters and hit two batters to blow the game in the 12th inning. That, my friends, is how you blow a save. Without doubt and with authority. None of this pussyfooting around with grounders that just get past an infielder. Decisive action brings order to a world full…

  6. Mariners bench Brendan Ryan for accountability issue

    Apr 10, 2012, 6:42 PM EDT

    Brendan Ryan

    Brendan Ryan is taking a seat for Tuesday’s game against the Rangers due to an accountability issue, manager Eric Wedge told Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times. The only additional detail provided was that it was unrelated to the poor throw Ryan made in Monday night’s game. Ryan might have been late to arrive to…

  7. Yu Darvish uneven in major league debut

    Apr 9, 2012, 10:36 PM EDT

    Yu Darvish AP MLB debut

    Yu Darvish‘s major league debut didn’t go exactly as planned tonight against the Mariners, but he certainly showed flashes of why the Rangers broke the bank to bring him into the fold. In what was likely a case of the nerves, Darvish allowed four runs on four hits and three walks in a 42-pitch first…

    From MLB.com’s Greg Johns comes word that Mariners shortstop Brendan Ryan was scratched from Saturday’s game against the A’s due to neck stiffness.

    Yoenis Cespedes Getty

    The Mariners actually beat the Athletics 7-3 last night, but all everyone can talk about this morning is Yoenis Cespedes, who nearly hit one to San Jose. In the bottom of the fourth inning, Cespedes turned on an 83 mph changeup from Mariners’ starter Jason Vargas for a massive blast to left-center which traveled 462…

  10. 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…

    Mariners center fielder Franklin Gutierrez was put on the disabled list before Wednesday’s season-opener in Japan and won’t be in the Seattle starting lineup Friday when the team gets going state-side. But he should be ready to rock by the end of April. According to Larry Stone of the Seattle Times, Gutierrez was recently cleared…

    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…

  13. 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…

  14. And the season’s first disabled list trip goes to … Mike Carp

    Mar 29, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Mike Carp

    It took exactly one game for a player to suffer an injury that requires a disabled list stint, as Mariners left fielder Mike Carp hurt his right shoulder diving for a ball against the A’s in Japan and has been placed on the shelf. Carp played the entire 11-inning game, but was later diagnosed with…

  15. Quote of the Day: Brendan Ryan on his ring bearer, Felix Hernandez

    Mar 29, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Brendan Ryan

    If you’re into the sappy love stuff, there’s a story over at MLB.com about how the Mariners’ Brendan Ryan proposed to his girlfriend in Tokyo yesterday. Just … awwwwwww. But the best part was when Ryan was talking about the logistics of his proposal. Specifically, how he got the rock over to Japan: The hyperactive…

    Mar 29, 2012, 7:31 AM EDT

    Yoenis Cespedes

    Athletics 4, Mariners 1:  As you would expect, the A’s and M’s were all about the home runs today. All the game’s runs were scored on bombs, in fact, though they gave us their de riguer 0-0 tie through six innings. Three of the four dingers came in the seventh, with Justin Smoak going deep…

    Mariners 3, A’s 1: Opening Morning!  Gotta say, for all of my bitching about this yesterday, it was kind of nice to wake up at 5:52 AM, roll over, fire up the laptop and watch some baseball. At least until my kids woke up. Then I had to take precious time away from the game…

  18. The regular season is underway

    Mar 28, 2012, 6:20 AM EDT

    Japan Game

    I’m watching the Mariners-A’s game on MLB.tv.  It just began a couple of minutes ago. The Root sports broadcasters are doing the game via video while back home in Seattle. That’s special. Ichiro came to bat with two outs in the first inning, worked the count full off Brandon McCarthy and then chopped one off…

  19. 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.

    Geoff Baker is in Japan, getting ready for the season-opening series between the Mariners and A’s.  He got there a couple of days before the team and has been doing so sightseeing. One thing he saw: the Ichiro museum.  It’s right in front of his parents’ house. And his mom and dad run it. And…

  23. Franklin Gutierrez won’t travel with Mariners to Japan

    Mar 20, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    gutierrez ap

    Franklin Gutierrez has recovered enough from a torn pectoral muscle that he’s resumed swinging a bat, but the Mariners center fielder has not been cleared to throw yet and Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times reports that he won’t accompany the team to Japan later this week. Gutierrez’s best-case scenario is probably a late-April debut,…

  24. Mariners release oft-injured reliever Hong-Chih Kuo

    Mar 19, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

    Hong-Chih Kuo

    Hong-Chih Kuo has been a mess all spring as he attempts to come back from elbow surgery and anxiety issues. Today the Mariners decided they’d seen enough, releasing the once-dominant left-hander. When healthy Kuo has been one of the best relievers in baseball, logging 170 innings with a 1.96 ERA and 201 strikeouts from 2008-2010,…

  25. Dominant Felix Hernandez first to go six innings this spring

    Mar 16, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    OK, so he was facing a Brewers lineup comprised strictly of Triple-A players, but Felix Hernandez was like a hot knife through butter on Friday, allowing one hit in six innings of work. He became the first pitcher to complete six innings this spring. Hernandez struck out six, walked one and hit a batter. Overall,…
