We’ll post some video and more photos of the two visits later, but here a few quick pics of the guys from this morning.

The Eastern Washington swing of the caravan concludes today in the Tri-Cities. Michael Saunders, Lucas Luetge and Rick Rizzs will conclude the caravan next week with stops in Mt.

Starting with tonight’s game against the Blue Jays, Mariners fans will have their first chance to pick up the August issue of Mariners Magazine (Volume 23, Issue 5) featuring left-handed relief pitcher Charlie Furbush on the cover.
Below is the featured article in magazine (Maine Man) on the Mariners left-hander.
You can pick up Mariners Magazine throughout Safeco Field and at any of the five Mariners Team Stores. You can also subscribe to Mariners Magazine and have it delivered to your home.
The newest episode of Mariners All-Access debuts today on ROOT Sports NW at noon, and re-airs tonight at 6 p.m. following the Mariners-Padres Interleague finale. If you are not able to watch today, you can catch the show at 6 pm on June 29 or June 30.
This week’s episode is dedicated to the Tricks of the Trade feature.
- Switch hitters are rare and the Mariners have the rarest… one with power. Justin Smoak puts on a hitting clinic from both sides of the plate, from the most basic things like stance and swing, to contact points with the ball.
- Left-handed reliever Charlie Furbush earns a cameo, but his impact is big, just like his slider—he’ll teach you how he throws it. (Great at parties to strike out your friends).
- Catcher Jesus Montero recently switched things up, not his delivery or swing, but his equipment. Here is a hint, it is unknown how well Montero would fair out on the ice against Pavel Datsyuk, but he looks the part with his new mask.
- And finally, if the ball gets by an infielder, the guy is going to be standing on first, if it gets by the outfield chances are someone is touching home—that’s why they say, the infield will hurt you, the outfield will kill you. Outfielder Michael Saunders makes sure this won’t happen. He takes us out to the grass for a lesson on catching Major League fly balls.
