Kelenic era take 2, and Raleigh too
For their last game before the All-Star break, Your Seattle Mariners promoted their big prospect to the Major League team. No, not Jarred Kelenic, this was catcher Cal Raleigh, who started that game on Sunday and went 0-for-4.
Kelenic era paused
In a stunning admission of reality, the Mariners have optioned prized prospect Jarred Kelenic back to Triple-A Tacoma. The 21-year-old would-be phenom was brought up to the Majors back on May 13th after just six games in Triple-A. Despite a good second game in the bigs—a 3-for-4 night against Cleveland that included his first home run—Kelenic turned out, unsurprisingly, not to be ready for prime time. His first stint in the Majors was 23 games and 92 plate appearances, in which he posted a batting line of .096/.185/.193.
Mariners limp home after 1-4 trip, send for help
Your Seattle Mariners are once again an under-.500 team. Losing big tonight to the newly-revitalized Los Angeles Dodgers, the M's fell below the break-even mark for the first time since April 6th. The 7-1 loss closes out a brief five-game road trip during which the M's won once, a 5-4 victory in Texas last Friday, and brings their season record down to 18-19.
