Chris Taylor will join the Mariners for tonight’s game.

The Mariners made a roster move this afternoon adding infielder Chris Taylor to the 25-man roster. Utility infielder/outfielder Willie Bloomquist has been designated for assignment to open the roster spot.

Taylor, 24, will wear #1 and will be active for tonight’s series opener vs. the Oakland Athletics at O.co Coliseum (7:07 pm).

This will be Taylor’s second stint with the Mariners this season, batting .159 (10×63) in 20 games from May 4-June 1. In 48 games with AAA Tacoma he hit .289 (56×194) with 9 doubles, 4 triples, 2 home runs, 16 RBI and was 13-for-17 stealing bases. In 47 games in the infield (SS – 36, 2B – 11) he made 6 errors in 200 total chances. In 27 games since returning to the Rainiers Taylor has hit .272 (31×114) with 4 doubles, 3 triples and recorded 7 stolen bases (.352 on-base pct).

Bloomquist, 37, has appeared in 35 games for the Mariners this season at 6 different positions: SS-7 G/5 GS, 1B-3 G/3 GS, LF-5 G/3 GS, 3B-5 G/2 GS, 2B-8 G/2 GS, RF- 2 G/1 GS. He is batting .159 (11×69) with 1 doubles and 4 RBI. This is Bloomquist’s 14th Major League season and second stint with the Mariners. The Port Orchard native has played in 622 games with Seattle (21st-most in club history) since making his Major League debut in 2002.

The Mariners active roster is the following:

Morning Recap – Montgomery’s 1-Hitter

Mike Montgomery threw a 1-hitter last night, not allowing a hit until 1 out in the 7th inning.

Mike Montgomery threw a 1-hitter last night, not allowing a hit until 1 out in the 7th inning.

Mariners rookie starting pitcher Mike Montgomery threw a 1-hit shutout last night, his second consecutive shutout (5-hit shutout 6/23 vs. KC).

Here are some pretty cool facts about Montgomery’s 1-hitter:

  • 1-Hitter – Recorded the 10th 1-hitter in club history, and first since Jarrod Washburn on July 6, 2009 vs. Baltimore…was the 13th 1-hit shutout in club history.
  • Back-to-Back Shutouts – Just the 7th time in club history a pitcher has thrown consecutive shutouts, and first time since Freddy Garcia July 1 & July 6, 2001.
  • Rookie Back-to-Back Shutouts – First rookie pitcher in MLB to throw back-to-back shutouts since Cleveland’s Jeremy Sowers in 2006…12th rookie since 1980 to throw back-to-back shutouts.
  • 6 Starts, 2 Shutouts – According to the Elias Sports Bureau, became the fourth pitcher over the last 40 years to record at pair of shutouts within the first 6 starts of a career: Fernando Valenzuela (1981), Orel Hershiser (1984) and Jeremy Sowers (2006).
  • Scoreless Innings – Will take a 18.0 scoreless innings streak into his next start.
  • What a June – Made 6 June starts, going 3-2 with a 1.62 ERA (8 ER, 44.1 IP)…8th-lowest June ERA in Mariners history (min. 5 GS) and led all MLB rookies in ERA for the month of June (K. Graveman, OAK, 2nd with 1.93 ERA)…2nd-lowest ERA by a rookie pitcher (min. 5 GS) in club history in any month trailing only a 1.45 mark by Matt Young in May 1983 (1.45 ERA).

Here is a video recap of Montgomery’s 1-hit gem:

And some social media posts that helped ‘Mike Montgomery’ trend nationwide last night:

Mariners send two to Pitch, Hit & Run National Finals

14 year Haley Loffer (left) and 10-year old Trevor Cogley (right), both of Hayden, Idaho, are headed to Cincinnati for the Pitch, Hit & Run National Finals next month during MLB All-Star Week.

14 year Haley Loffer (left) and 10-year old Trevor Cogley (right), both of Hayden, Idaho, are headed to Cincinnati for the Pitch, Hit & Run National Finals next month during MLB All-Star Week.

Two competitors from then Mariners Pitch, Hit & Run Team Championship last week have qualified for the National Finals of MLB’s skills competition.

Ten year old Trevor Cogley, and 14 year old Haley Loffer, both from Hayden, in North Idaho, will travel to Cincinnati, host of the 2015 MLB All-Star Game. The competition will be on field at Great American Ball Park on Monday, July 13 prior to the Home Run Derby.

Haley, who competed in the 13-14 Year Old Girls division, went to the National Finals in 2013 when the competition was at Citi Field in New York. Haley, who will be a sophomore in high school next year, plays on an 18-and-under travel team called North Idaho Xtreme.

Trevor, who goes to Atlas Elementary, plays on the Hayden Little League All-Stars. His mom says he’s been “smiling from ear to ear” ever since he found out he made the finals.

Both Haley and Trevor were among the approximately 625,000 kids who participated in Pitch, Hit & Run competitions across North America. They advanced through four levels of competition and emerged as one of the three top performers in their age groups.

Pitch, Hit & Run is part of “PLAY BALL,” MLB’s initiative aimed at getting kids to participate in all kinds of baseball and softball activities.
