Edwin Diaz blew his third game of the season by allowing two runs in the ninth inning of Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Phillies.

Diaz came on with the Mariners clinging to a 4-3 lead. That would not last for long, as he coughed up a solo homer to Tommy Joseph to lead off the ninth inning. Following a pair of strikeouts, Diaz walked Cameron Perkins, balked him over to second and then surrendered a go-ahead RBI single to Andrew Knapp. Diaz has allowed six runs in his last 1 1/3 innings, but after the game, manager Scott Servais said that he would remain at closer moving forward.

Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

Cano launched a solo home run in the fifth inning to give the Mariners a 4-3 lead. Edwin Diaz would later blow that lead in the ninth. The stalwart second baseman is slashing a nice .282/.339/.480 with 14 homers and 52 RBI in 69 games this season.

Felix Hernandez allowed three runs on five hits over six innings while taking a no-decision in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

Hernandez was not at his sharpest in this one, as he walked three and threw just 66 of 98 pitches for strikes. All three runs on his line scored in the third inning, when Ty Kelly burned him for a two-run homer and Odubel Herrera picked up an RBI on a ground out. In two starts since returning from the disabled list, King Felix has surrendered six runs on 13 hits in 12 innings. He will look to continue to shake off the rust in a home start against the Royals next time he toes the rubber.

Mariners sent RHP Pat Light outright to Triple-A Tacoma.

The Mariners claimed Light off waivers earlier this month and will get to hang on to him after he cleared waivers this time around. He holds a 4.82 ERA and 20/18 K/BB ratio over 28 Triple-A innings this season.

Drew Smyly (elbow) will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery.

The operation will be performed on July 6 by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Alabama. Smyly has been out all season with a strained flexor bundle in his pitching elbow, and a recent setback apparently involved the tearing of his ulnar collateral ligament. The left-hander will likely be sidelined at least until the second half of next season. Smyly is under team control for 2018, but he'll be an obvious non-tender candidate this winter.

Ben Gamel (groin) was hitless in three at-bats with a walk and three strikeouts Tuesday against Philadelphia.

Gamel missed one game due to a sore groin and swollen lymph nodes. While he was back in action after a scheduled day off Monday, he certainly looked a bit off at the plate. Give him another game to prove his health before trusting him in the active fantasy lineup or in DFS play.

Danny Valencia (wrist) finished 2-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's game against the Phillies.

Valencia missed the past two games due to a sore right wrist but he showed no ill effects of the injury, playing the entire game while handling duties at first base. It appears safe to plug him back into the active fantasy lineup if you normally depend upon him.

Jean Segura finished 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Tuesday's game against Philadelphia.

Segura's shot was all the Seattle offense could muster against Aaron Nola, who was masterful in a 113-pitch quality start. It was also his first homer - and just his second extra-base hit - in six outings since coming off the 10-day disabled list on June 21.
Jun 28 - 3:21 AM

James Paxton allowed three earned runs, four hits and three walks with nine strikeouts across seven innings in a loss Tuesday against Philadelphia.

Paxton started out 5-0 with a 1.69 ERA through his first eight outings, but he is an ugly 0-3 with a 7.65 ERA over his past four starts. The good news is he has managed 17 strikeouts over the past two outings, and Tuesday's game marked his first quality start since April 26. Despite another loss, mostly due to a lack of run support, perhaps he is starting to emerge from his months-long slump.

There remains no timetable for Hisashi Iwakuma's (shoulder).

Iwakuma was re-evaluated late last week after feeling renewed soreness in his right shoulder, and he's still limited to receiving treatment for now. "I know he's still getting treatment and working his tail off, but I haven't heard anything different there," Mariners manager Scott Servais said. Iwakuma has been out since early May.

Mariners pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre confirmed Tuesday that Drew Smyly (elbow) has experienced a setback.

Smyly had been set to throw a second simulated game Wednesday, but that was scratched and now we know why. There's currently no timetable for when he'll return to the mound, so it sounds like it could be a significant setback. Smyly has been out all season with a strained flexor bundle in his pitching elbow.

Drew Smyly's (elbow) scheduled simulated game for Wednesday has been scratched.

There's no word yet on the reason, but you'd have to assume it's health-related. Smyly has been out all season with a strained flexor bundle in his pitching elbow. The Mariners should offer an update on the left-hander later Tuesday.
Jun 27 - 7:04 PM

Danny Valencia (wrist) is back in the Mariners' lineup Tuesday.

Valencia missed a couple games with a sore right wrist. He's at first base and hitting seventh.
Jun 27 - 6:12 PM

Ben Gamel (groin) is back in the Mariners' lineup Tuesday.

Gamel sat out Sunday with a minor groin strain, but he's ready to go for this one. He's in left field and batting second against Aaron Nola and the Phillies.
Jun 27 - 6:11 PM

Robinson Cano went 1-for-3 with a two-run double in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

Cano notched a two-run double off Francis Martes in the second inning. The two-bagger was his 13th of the season and increased his RBI total to 51. In addition, the All-Star second baseman owns a .279/.339/.475 triple slash and has cracked 13 homers over the course of 67 games played.
