Sep 1 - 1:32 PM

Willie Bloomquist will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Friday.

He finishes his season slashing .278/.297/.346 with a homer and 14 RBI in his 47 games. He should be fully healthy and ready to go when the Mariners' 2015 season begins.
Aug 8 - 7:06 PM

Willie Bloomquist will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Friday.

The operation will be performed by Dr. Ed Khalfayan. The Mariners will hold off establishing a timetable for Bloomquist until after the procedure, but it will almost surely end his season.
Aug 7 - 9:09 PM

Willie Bloomquist (knee) will meet with the Mariners' team doctor soon.

Bloomquist is feeling a bit better, but his recovery from a bruised right knee is going very slowly overall. He's not close to being cleared to run again.
Aug 5 - 7:33 PM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Saturday that Willie Bloomquist's (knee) progress "is not happening as quickly as we initially thought."

Bloomquist is eligible to return on Friday, but he's not expected to be ready at that time. The veteran utility player has been out since late July with a bruised right knee.
Aug 3 - 10:11 AM

Willie Bloomquist was given a platelet-rich plasma injection his right knee on Friday.

Bloomquist, who was placed on the DL Thursday, is still limping noticeably but says the injection has helped. "It’s a bone bruise," Bloomquist said, "and it’s painful. I got an injection, and they’re hoping by next week it will feel better."

Willie Bloomquist will undergo an MRI on his right knee Thursday.

Jul 24 - 6:56 PM

Mariners placed INF Willie Bloomquist on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee contusion.

Bloomquist apparently suffered the injury during Wednesday's game. Chris Taylor has essentially taken his place on the active roster and could push Brad Miller for playing time at shortstop.
Jul 24 - 5:14 PM

Willie Bloomquist went 3-for-5 with a steal, two runs scored, and an RBI double in a win over the Mets on Monday.

Somebody out there will wake up tomorrow morning grinning ear-to-ear that Bloomquist was in his AL-only fantasy lineup tonight. Chances are, that isn't you. In truth, nobody could have seen a big night coming from the veteran utilityman. This was Bloomquist's first steal of the season, his first three-hit game of the year, and the double represented his first extra-base hit since June 22. Willie Bloomquist will now return to being Willie Bloomquist.
Jul 22 - 1:06 AM

Willie Bloomquist went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in a win over the Royals on Sunday.

Bloomquist finished the game with two doubles, but it was his RBI double in the fifth inning that pulled the Mariners even with the Royals. Bloomquist's playing time has been sporadic -- he's got just 10 starts this month -- but he's got five multi-hit games in that stretch. The infielder is batting .280/.299/.366 and is a non-factor in fantasy.
Jun 22 - 5:57 PM

Willie Bloomquist went 2-for-3 with an RBI double as the Mariners topped the Tigers 4-0 on Sunday.

Bloomquist's run-scoring double off Max Scherzer in the fifth inning increased the Mariners advantage to 2-0, which was more than enough support for Roenis Elias. In limited time this season, the veteran infielder is hitting .237/.246/.322 with eight RBI.
Jun 1 - 7:13 PM

Willie Bloomquist hit his first homer since 2011 in Friday's win over the Astros.

It was a two-run shot off spot starter Rudy Owens. Bloomquist had four homers for the Diamondbacks in 2011, but he was without one in 508 at-bats the last three seasons. He entered tonight with a .178/.196/.200 line in 45 at-bats this year.
May 24 - 12:59 AM

Willie Bloomquist went 3-for-3 in Sunday's 9-8 victory over the Rangers in Cactus League play.

All three of the veteran infielder's hits were singles. He's slated to function in a utility role for the M's this season, and offers very little fantasy value outside of AL-only leagues.
Mar 9 - 8:34 PM

Mariners signed INF/OF Willie Bloomquist to a two-year, $5.8 million contract.

Bloomquist appeared in only 48 games in 2013 due to a lingering hand injury, but he'll be 100 percent for spring training and will serve as an active utilityman for Seattle. The 36-year-old is a .271/.320/.346 career hitter in the major leagues.
