3/26/2015 | Hernandez's strong start 'very pleasing' to Mariners

The Mariners lost to the Royals, 3-0, on Thursday at Peoria Stadium. But really only one thing mattered in this one. Felix Hernandez looked King-ly and thus all was well.


3/26/2015 | Elias, Mariners roughed up by Brewers' bats

Brewers left fielder Khris Davis made his first Spring Training home run count Thursday, hitting a first-inning grand slam that one-hopped its way clear out of Maryvale Baseball Park in the Brewers' 15-1 victory over the Mariners. Davis connected against Mariners left-hander Roenis Elias, who surrendered six earned runs on eight hits over three-plus innings.


3/26/2015 | Felix turns in solid outing against Royals

Mariners ace Felix Hernandez threw six strong innings while allowing just two hits and one run Thursday, but Royals veteran right-hander Jeremy Guthrie was even better with 5 2/3 scoreless frames in a 3-0 Cactus League pitchers' duel, won by Kansas City, at Peoria Stadium.


3/26/2015 | Mariners' bullpen battle remains wide open

While much of the focus on Mariners pitching this spring has swirled around the fifth-starter competition between Taijuan Walker and Roenis Elias, there is an even deeper and heated competition for relief spots on a club that posted the lowest bullpen ERA in baseball in 2014.


3/25/2015 | Sucre ready for action; hip 'not going to be a big deal'

After sitting out two games with a sore hip, Jesus Sucre was ready for duty on Wednesday night, and the Mariners' backup catcher said it's time to begin pointing toward the start of the regular season.


3/25/2015 | McClendon thinking about Weeks sharing leadoff role

Lloyd McClendon has endorsed center fielder Austin Jackson as a leadoff hitter ever since Seattle acquired him from the Tigers at last July's Trade Deadline, but the Mariners' skipper is toying with trying Rickie Weeks in that role at times this season as well.


3/25/2015 | Walker: Always room to improve despite dominant spring

It's hard to imagine Taijuan Walker pitching much better or doing much more to impress in his battle for the Mariners' fifth-starter position, but the 22-year-old insists there's more in the tank even after running his scoreless streak to 18 innings this spring in Wednesday night's 3-2 victory over the Cubs.


3/25/2015 | Cora to throw out first pitch on Opening Day

Former Mariners fan favorite Joey Cora will throw out the ceremonial first pitch on Opening Day. He played second base for Seattle from 1995-98 and was an integral part of the first Mariners team to make the playoffs in 1995.


3/24/2015 | Smith bringing professional approach to Mariners

Seth Smith came out swinging Tuesday against the Padres, but playing against the team that traded him in the offseason carried no special weight for the Mariners' new right fielder.


3/24/2015 | Happ pleased with pitch count, not results

Pitching for a new team with people wondering what he's going to bring, J.A. Happ would have preferred a better impression than Tuesday's rough go in a 6-4 loss to the Padres. But the Mariners southpaw isn't going to overreact to a Spring Training outing, and neither is his manager.


3/24/2015 | Smith launches homer on rocky day for Happ

Seth Smith homered on a two-hit day and Austin Jackson also had two hits Tuesday as the Mariners dropped a Cactus League matchup against the Padres, 6-4, at the Peoria Sports Complex.


3/24/2015 | Rule 5 pick Rollins rolling at Mariners camp

Left-hander David Rollins -- ranked among Seattle's top prospects -- has slowly forced himself into the Mariners' conversation with his performance as a Rule 5 Draft pick with an increasing chance of beating the odds and landing a spot on the 25-man roster.


3/23/2015 | Instead of facing Angels, Iwakuma faces Minor Leaguers

Mariners right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma gave up two runs and six hits over five innings on Monday in a Triple-A Minor League game against the Rangers' Round Rock club at the Peoria Sports Complex. He pitched in the Minor League game instead of facing the American League West-rival Angels in Seattle's Cactus League contest.


3/23/2015 | Mariners feel pieces are in place for special '15

The Mariners are getting the attention of the rest of the American League. This is a team that has reason to believe it can claim the AL West, but it could well find itself next October appearing in a World Series for the first time.


3/23/2015 | Seeking backup to Miller, Mariners try Bloomquist at short

The Mariners' infield depth has taken a hit with Chris Taylor's broken bone in his wrist, leaving Willie Bloomquist as the only experienced backup shortstop to Brad Miller. Bloomquist, coming back from microfracture knee surgery, had played only second and first base this spring until making his first start at shortstop Monday.


3/23/2015 | Out of options, Ramirez's time with Mariners may soon end

Erasmo Ramirez is out of Minor League options with the Mariners, and the right-hander from Nicaragua may be running out of time as well after lasting just 1 2/3 innings in Monday's 5-0 loss to the Angels in Cactus League play.


3/23/2015 | Ramirez endures first rough spring outing in loss to Halos

Against Mariners righty Erasmo Ramirez at Tempe Diablo Stadium on Monday, the Angels' starters plated five runs in the first three innings of a 5-0 victory, which was more than enough thanks to six impressive innings by Matt Shoemaker. Ramirez, vying for a rotation spot, is out of options and had a 2.00 ERA before struggling Monday.


3/23/2015 | In reserve role, Ruggiano well aware preparation is key

Justin Ruggiano knows the score. He's not the highest-profile newcomer in the Mariners' clubhouse. He'll need to fight for playing time, likely in a platoon role in right with Seth Smith or as a backup to Austin Jackson in center. But when called upon, Ruggiano needs to be ready and he's learned to make the most of every opportunity.


3/22/2015 | Sucre pulled from game vs. Rangers with right hip soreness

Mariners backup catcher Jesus Sucre was taken out of Sunday's 8-0 victory over the Rangers in the sixth inning after feeling pain in his right hip while running to first on a single.


3/22/2015 | Paxton's return bolsters already deep Mariners rotation

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon had plenty of reasons to smile after his club's 8-0 victory over the Rangers on Sunday, but the biggest easily was the returned presence of James Paxton on the mound.


3/22/2015 | Cruz, Seager power Mariners to rout of Rangers

Kyle Seager and Nelson Cruz each crunched three-run home runs and James Paxton threw 3 1/3 scoreless innings in his Cactus League debut as the Mariners topped Texas, 8-0, on Sunday at Peoria Stadium.


3/22/2015 | Shift to outfield going seamlessly for Weeks

he transition of Rickie Weeks to the outfield has gone seamlessly to date for the Mariners. So seamless that manager Lloyd McClendon keeps waiting for the former second baseman to actually get challenged in game action.


3/22/2015 | Seager returns to lineup loudly with three-run homer

All-Star third baseman Kyle Seager was back in the Mariners' lineup for Sunday afternoon's game against the Rangers after being held out Saturday with some tightness in his side.


3/21/2015 | Zunino's work at the plate paying dividends this spring

Mike Zunino proved himself as a quality defensive catcher last year who was capable of providing some right-handed power at the plate, but the 23-year-old's continued development of his offensive game this spring is a postive sign for Seattle.


3/21/2015 | Felix falters vs. phenoms, but offense keeps game tight

In his second start of the spring, Felix Hernandez gave up a homers to Cubs' top prospects Kris Bryant and Addison Russell as the Mariners lost, 12-10, to Chicago on Saturday.
