Mariners Spring Training Update – Day 33

Sunday, March 16, 2014 / 15 Days ‘til Opening Night (March 31 at Los Angeles Angels) / 23 Days ‘til Opening Night in Seattle (April 8 vs. Angels)

Game Recap vs. the Angels:

Mariners celebrate after a 5-3 win over the Angels.

Mariners celebrate after a 5-3 win over the Angels.

Behind the strong starting pitching of Roenis Elias and timely offense, the Seattle Mariners defeated the Los Angeles Angels 5-3 Sunday in front of a sold-out crowd of 9,628 at Tempe Diablo Stadium.

Roenis Elias (3-0) made his first start of the spring, and tossed 5.0 strong innings to pick up the win. The left-hander allowed just one run on two hits while striking out a pair of Angels. He used just 62 pitches to navigate the Angels offense.

The Mariners jumped to an early 2-0 lead in the first inning, stringing together four hits, including RBI singles by Michael Saunders (scoring Kyle Seager) and Dustin Ackley (scoring Justin Smoak).

Seattle added another pair of runs in the sixth inning as Ackley reached on an error, and Mike Zunino walked. Ackley scored on a sacrifice fly by Willie Bloomquist and Zunino came around to score on a two-out double by Endy Chavez.

The first four Seattle runs (two earned) came off Angels starter C.J. Wilson (0-2), who was tagged with the loss.

Seattle’s final run came on a solo home run by minor league call-up Tyler Smith in the eighth inning.

Relievers Zach Miner (2.0 IP, 1 ER), Lucas Luetge (1.0 IP, 0 ER) and Yoervis Medina (1.0 IP, 1 R, 0 ER) closed out the game for Seattle, with Medina recording his first save of the spring.

Special Guests In Camp
Mariners great Edgar Martinez arrived in camp today and Jay Buhner will arrive tomorrow. Both will work as special instructors with the Major and minor league teams. Martinez spent his entire 18 year career with Seattle (1987-2004) and Buhner spent 14 in Seattle (1988-2001).

Roenis Elias Impresses
Starter Roenis Elias was pretty impressive in his five innings of work today, especially considering that he was facing an Angels lineup that featured many of their regulars including Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, David Freese, Howie Kendrick, Erick Aybar and Chris Iannetta. Elias allowed just two hits, a triple and a single, both to Erick Aybar. You can check out the post-outing media session with Roenis (in Spanish) here:

Taijuan Walker Progressing
Taijuan Walker continues to make progress as he works his way back from bursitis and today completed a 40-pitch bullpen session that included fastballs, change-ups and two-seamers. After working on his shoulder exercises, he made his way to the clubhouse where he spoke to the media and told them he “felt great.”

RAUUUUUUUL!
The Mariners saw a familiar face after walking from the parking lot to the visiting dugout. Down the right field line, several players, trainers and staff members made sure to stop and say hi to Raul Ibañez, one of the most popular players in club history. Raul has always been a strong leader and has worked extremely hard to be the best that he can be on the field, even at the age of 41.

Raul Ibanez made sure to say hi to his old Mariners friends.

Getting Familiar
For the third time this spring, the Mariners faced C.J. Wilson in a spring game. It raised a few eyebrows in the press room, mostly because you don’t always want a team getting too many looks at a starter that they will be facing often during the regular season. Wilson previously faced Seattle on March 1 & 11 and will likely face us during the first regular season series.

Baker’s Dozen Plus One (Outs)
Along the same lines as the blurb you just read about C.J. Wilson…Scott Baker pitched in a Triple-A game against the Milwaukee Brewer Triple-A squad to avoid pitching against the Angels for the third time this spring. Since there’s a chance that Baker could break camp in the rotation, the staff didn’t want the Angels hitters to get too comfortable against Baker since they’ll likely face him in the opening series of the season. How’d he do? He tossed 4 2/3 innings, allowed five hits, two runs, two walks, five hits while throwing 75 pitches including 47 strikes.

Swarm at Tempe Diablo Stadium Makes It Hard To Get To Seats
Fans at the Mariners game in Tempe Diablo Stadium found it a little hard to get to their seats, only it didn’t have anything to do with the expected sold out crowd. Prior to the game, there was a swarm of bees behind home plate and fans had to wait outside until they moved on. If you remember, last year the Mariners and Angels also had a bee delay on September 22nd.

Blending In With The Enemy
Mariners Director of Pro Scouting Tom Allison stopped by the press box and was immediately heckled for wearing what he called his “Tiger Woods outfit.” If you’ve been to Tempe Diablo Stadium where the Angels play, you’ll notice a lot of people wearing “Tiger Woods outfits,” most notably a red polo shirt. After graciously absorbing the good-natured jokes, he chimed in with, “hey, it got me in the parking lot faster!”

Mariners All-Access
Be sure to tune in to ROOT SPORTS NW for Mariners All-Access tonight at 7 pm for: Highlights of Taijuan Walker throwing his bullpen session and you’ll hear from the Mariners right-hander. Stephen Pryor talks about his recovery from an injury that shut him down most of 2013 and how he’s feeling this spring. Mike Zunino and John Buck talk about their relationship and how they plan to learn from each other this spring. And of course you’ll see highlights of the Mariners/Angels game at Tempe.

A Day Off…FINALLY!
After 36 straight days in the office (since February 9), Mariners staffers are finally getting a day off tomorrow. How will we spend it? So many possibilities on what we could do. Golfing? Hiking? Movies? Sadly, we’ll probably still spend some time at the office at some point.

What’s on Tap:
The Mariners (13-5-2) will play a night game on Tuesday against the San Diego Padres at Peoria Stadium. You can hear all the action on 710 ESPN Seattle with Rick Rizzs and Aaron Goldsmith and you can watch the game on ROOT SPORTS NW with Mike Blowers and Dave Sims calling the action.

Mariners Spring Training Update – Day 30:

Thursday, March 13, 2014 / 18 Days ‘til Opening Night (March 31 at Los Angeles Angels) / 26 Days ‘til Opening Night in Seattle (April 8 vs. Angels)

Game Recap vs. the Diamondbacks:
The Seattle Mariners defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-3 in Cactus League action Thursday in front of a sold-out crowd of 12,611 at Salt River Fields.

Starting pitcher Blake Beavan set the tone for the game, working 4.2 innings and allowing just 1 run while scattering 5 hits and striking out 4. His only run allowed came in the fourth inning when, working with a 4-0 lead, he allowed a leadoff double that came around to score on a pair of outs. Beavan improved to 2-0 this spring, and lowered his earned run average to 2.13.

Second baseman Robinson Cano was 2-for-4 with a pair of runs batted in. He is now batting .609 this spring (14-for-23). Logan Morrison, playing first base today, was also 2-for-4 and slugged his first home run of the spring to boost Seattle’s lead to 5-1 in the fifth inning.

Game

Taijuan Feels Good:
Taijuan Walker threw a 25-pitch bullpen session this morning, and said it “was a great relief. I finally feel normal again. I can finally go out and just be normal and play catch and not worry about anything. I’m excited. It kind of feels like I just got here. It feels really good.”

Taijuan Walker is progressing and threw a bullpen this morning.

Mariners play-by-play man Aaron Goldsmith will be calling the ASU vs. Stanford game tonight, the late game on Friday, as well as the Championship Game on Saturday afternoon. No doubt Ryan Divish will be glued to the television somewhere watching all the action.

Aaron Goldsmith will call some games during the Pac-12 Tourney the next few days.

Hall of Fame Coin:
This news item has been making its rounds on the internet, but we think it is pretty cool, so we will also share with you. The United States mint in San Francisco will soon produce an unusual coin in honor of the nation’s favorite pastime…with a curved coin. The coin commemorates the Hall of Fame, which celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2014. The National Baseball Hall of Fame Coins are scheduled to go on sale at noon on March 27, 2014.

Contacto Deportivo/Republica Deportiva
Lindsay Casinelli with Univision’s Contacto Deportivo/Republica Deportiva has been making the rounds at Spring Training and today landed in Peoria to interview Robinson Cano.

Sounds like they are also heading to Seattle in a few months, so we’ll be seeing them again this summer.

Jack Wilson in Camp:
Former Mariners infielder Jack Wilson visited the clubhouse today, saying hello to old teammates and checking out the new spring training facility. Jack is retired, last playing in the Majors with Atlanta in 2012. He appeared in 154 games for the Mariners from 2009-2011. He is currently keeping busy coaching his oldest son’s (Jacob) baseball team in Thousand Oaks, California. And since we haven’t seen Jack in a few years, we finally had the chance to ask him about his famous YouTube video of kicking a soccer ball to a moving jet ski. Jack said he grew up playing a lot of “jet ski football” and the video only took three takes to make. Check it out.

Robinson Cano Sports Illustrated Photo Shoot
As some of you may have seen, Sports Illustrated’s Greg Bishop went down to the Dominican Republic to have a chat with Robinson Cano in February. Bishop filed, “A day in the Dominican with Robinson Cano before his new life begins,” and will have an upcoming larger piece appear in the magazine. As part of that feature, SI photographer Robert Beck came out to Peoria to shoot art…one thing led to another, and eventually Robinson was dragging the field with the groundskeeper’s lawn mower. His bat speed is pretty good, but apparently he is a little slow behind the wheel as he got some good-natured ribbing from the crew for driving so slow.

Now Leading Your Tacoma Rainiers
The Mariners announced today that Roy Howell will manage the Mariners Triple-A affiliate the Tacoma Rainiers in 2014. Howell replaces Rich Donnelly, who was promoted last week to the Mariners Major League staff as third base coach.

Howell, who was entering the season as the hitting coach for Double-A Jackson, will take over at the helm of the Seattle’s affiliate in the Pacific Coast League, the Tacoma Rainiers. Howell spent the previous two seasons as the hitting coach for Single-A High Desert. In two seasons with High Desert, Howell led the Mavericks to a California League-best .289 (2876×9950) average, while the team ranked 3rd in the minor leagues with 827 runs scored in 2013. In 2012, the Mavericks set franchise-highs in nearly every offensive category, including average, hits, RBI and runs scored.

Roy Howell will lead the Tacoma Rainiers during the 2014 season.

Pronunciations Are Tough…
When you have players in your organization from countries all over the world, sometimes we have to make educated guesses on what we think the pronunciation of their names are…sometimes we’re off, but most times we’re spot on. This year, the tough one belonged to Cuban left-hander Roenis Elias (roh-EN-ees ehl-LEE-us). Just to double-check, we asked Roenis to pronounce his name for us. Click the link below and let us know if you can roll your “R’s” just like Roenis does…

Game Recap vs. the Angels:
The Mariners scored seven late-inning runs and benefited from an overturned call by use of the new instant replay rule in a 10-6 win over the Angels Tuesday afternoon in Cactus League play. The Mariners improved to 11-4-1, becoming the first team in spring training play to record 11 wins.  [Box Score]. The Mariners scored three runs in the 8th inning, benefiting from the first instant replay challenge of the spring by manager Lloyd McClendon. Here is an updated look at the Mariners spring training stats. And here is a video highlight of Nick Franklin’s RBI single in 6th inning:

Cactus League Report:
The Cactus League Report will air tonight from 7-9 pm from the Salty Senorita in Peoria.

Old Tempe Home:
The Mariners made their first of two stops in Tempe Diablo Stadium today, taking on the Los Angeles Angels. Tempe Diablo was the spring training home for Seattle baseball for almost (a combined) 20 years. The Mariners trained in Tempe from the franchise’s inception in 1977 through the spring of 1992. (The club moved spring training to Peoria, where we remain, beginning in 1993). In addition to the Mariners history here, the Seattle Pilots training in Tempe in 1969 and 1970. It was from here the trucks rolled heading to Seattle, only to be turned to Milwaukee for the 1970 season, and the birth of the Brewers.

Lets See That Again:
Today’s game was the first of five Instant Replay Review testing games. Both today’s and tomorrow’s games are televised, giving Lloyd McClendon and his staff a chance to work out the mechanics of Instant Replay Reviews. Mariners Major League Video Coordinator Jimmy Hartley spent today’s game in the Angels TV truck, sitting next to the MLB umpire who was reviewing calls. It will be part of Hartley’s job this season to relay information from the replays to the dugout in review situations. McClendon had his first challenge in the 8th inning and the play was reversed in favor of the Mariners. Here is a video clip of the overturned play via instant replay:

Always Something to See in Spring Training:
Felix Hernandez
, Hector Noesi and Yoervis Medina burst out of the clubhouse this morning, commandeered a golf cart, and headed for the minor league fields. Today was the first full squad workout for the Mariners minor league camp, but just one of the nearly 150 players on the lower fields was responsible for the burst of energy from three big league pitchers. Moises Hernandez, Felix’s brother, was scheduled to throw live batting practice today and Felix and friends wanted to be there to watch.

Mariners Podcasts:
There have been a lot of players join local and national radio programs this spring, including Logan Morrison this morning with Mitch in the Morning on KJR 950 and Stefen Romero on 710 ESPN Seattle with Bob & Groz today.
