2022 Season Preview: Outfield/DH/Bench
Looking at the lackluster production from Seattle outfielders last year, you might think it's an area of weakness—as a group, Mariner OFs combined to bat .210/.297/.396 in 2021, so it's understandable if that was your impression. But the M's actually have an embarrassment of riches in the outfield. On paper, anyway (or on screen, as it were). Though 2020 Rookie of the Year Kyle Lewis will start the season on the injured list again, he figures to be back in action before too long, joining Mitch Haniger, Jarred Kelenic, and Jesse Winker in a steady OF rotation.
Well, it seems our earlier assumption that center fielder Kyle Lewis' injury was relatively minor was a bit off the mark. It now appears that Lewis will likely need surgery to repair his latest knee troubles and miss a great deal of time on the field.
Yet more roster moves
The Mariners have made a few more roster moves today, continuing the season-long dance known as the Injury List Shuffle.
Previewing the '21 Mariners: Outfield/DH
The future is bright for Your Seattle Mariners when it comes to outfielders. The present is a little dimmer, but any youth movement has growing pains; 2021 may see a fair number of those as the building of the New Mariner Dynasty™ continues. Top prospects Jarred Kelenic and Julio Rodríguez will start the season in the minor leagues (as they should) and the guys on the big club have some developing left to do.
M's show some life in win vs Angels
Tonight's game against the Los Angeles Angels was an interesting one to watch. The Mariners won it, for one thing, which is always more fun than the usual. But it also had a lot of the good and a lot of the bad that we can expect to see as this weird mini-season unfolds.
M's win in Houston, hell dips below freezing
The Mariners hadn't won a game in Houston since 2018, but the pulled one out today. Barely. By the skin of their teeth.
Mariners sink Pirates in three-game sweep
With the season winding down and the Mariners hoping to merely avoid the indignity of losing 100 games, this final road trip to Pittsburgh and Baltimore was just what the doctor ordered. Building on their series win at home versus the White Sox, the Mariners' winning streak reached five games with the completion of a three-game sweep of the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
M's take wacky series from Chisox
That was nuts.
Reds series shows what to expect from next year's M's
The Cincinnati Reds are not an intimidating team, but they are Major Leaguers and just a few days ago many of the Seattle Mariners were not. So taking two of three in this Interleague matchup is meaningful, in a couple of ways.
Kyle and the Kids Take One from the Reds
I'm part of a season ticket group that meets every March to divvy up the season's games and talk about the year ahead. Mostly it's gallows humor. It's a good bunch of guys, with good humor and a deep knowledge of baseball history. I tend to buy tickets to 10 Mariner games, and last night was my last for the season. It was also the first time I ever saw the Cincinnati Reds live. I think. I grew up in an AL city.
