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.

Guillermo Heredia went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

Heredia was the lone Mariners batter to collect multiple hits. They finished with just five knocks for the game. The outfielder is hitting .284/.339/.378 with five homers, 13 RBI and 27 runs scored in 59 games this season.
Jun 25 - 7:40 PM

Ariel Miranda surrendered four runs on five hits over 7 1/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

The fourth inning would prove to be a little bit of a house of horrors for Miranda, who was burned for a solo homer by George Springer and a two-run homer by Yuli Gurriel in the frame, with an RBI double by Carlos Correa wedged in-between those shots. He finished up his afternoon having struck out two and walked one. The 28-year-old southpaw will carry a 4.11 ERA and 1.18 WHIP into a road start against the Angels in his next scheduled outing.

Ben Gamel is not in the Mariners' lineup Sunday due to a slight groin strain.

He apparently must have suffered the injury Saturday. Gamel isn't expected to be out more than a day or two. Guillermo Heredia is in left field Sunday.
Jun 25 - 2:25 PM

Danny Valencia (wrist) remained out of the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

He's missed two straight starts with a sore right wrist. Taylor Motter is handling first base again.
Jun 25 - 1:45 PM

Ben Gamel was hitless in four at-bats with a pair of strikeouts in Saturday's loss against the Astros.

Gamel's 15-game hitting streak was snapped, although he is still hitting a robust .418 (28-for-63) with 17 runs scored, two homers and eight RBI over the past 16 outings. He is slashing .346/.403/.490 as his breakout season continues.
Jun 25 - 3:13 AM

Jean Segura finished 1-for-4 in Saturday's game against the Astros with one strikeout.

Segura has hit safely in each of his four games since coming off the 10-day disabled list. While he has just one double and no other extra-base hits or RBI, he is still getting aboard. He is slashing a solid .338/.388/.455 and he'll contribute with an occasional steal as well.
Jun 25 - 1:58 AM

Nelson Cruz posted a single, double and a run scored over four at-bats in Saturday's loss against the Astros.

The multi-hit game was the 10th of the month of Cruz, who is hitting .333 (25-for-75) with eight doubles, two homers and 16 RBI across 21 games in June. While he is hitting for high average, he has no homers over his past 17 outings dating back to June 4. That's about the only complaint fantasy owners can have with Cruz.
Jun 25 - 1:52 AM

Sam Gaviglio allowed two earned runs, six hits and three walks with three strikeouts over six innings in a loss against the Astros on Saturday.

Gaviglio has managed a 3-2 record with a 3.38 ERA through nine appearances (eight starts). It's uncertain what his role will be once Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder) is ready to return, but the right-hander certainly has proven he belongs at the big league level in some capacity.
Jun 25 - 1:48 AM

Updating an earlier report, Danny Valencia was scratched from Saturday's game against the Astros due to a sore right wrist.

It's unclear when or how he got hurt. Taylor Motter is filling in at first base. Consider Valencia day-to-day.
Jun 24 - 8:54 PM

Drew Smyly (elbow) threw 50 pitches on Saturday.

25 of those pitches were thrown as part of a simulated inning. Smyly will throw one more simulated game before setting out on a minor league rehab assignment. The left-hander is hoping to make his season debut during Seattle's series at Houston that begins on July 17.
Jun 24 - 8:10 PM

Danny Valencia was scratched from the Mariners' lineup Saturday against the Astros.

Taylor Motter is now starting at first base and batting eighth. So far there's been no word on why Valencia was scratched. We'll let you know as soon as we find out.
Jun 24 - 8:08 PM

Mike Zunino is not in the Mariners' lineup Saturday against the Astros.

Zunino is getting a much-needed day of rest. He's gone ballistic this month, hitting .348 with nine homers and 29 RBI since June 1. Carlos Ruiz will start behind the plate and bat ninth Saturday against Astros right-hander Lance McCullers.
Jun 24 - 6:20 PM

In his return from the disabled list, Felix Hernandez surrendered three runs and eight hits in six innings Friday against the Astros.

Hernandez looked fine tonight and got himself a win in a 13-3 game, but this is about what should be expected from him these days. He gave up two homers tonight, bringing his total allowed to eight in just 32 2/3 innings. Until he puts a run of strong outings together, he should be treated as a spot starter in mixed leagues.
Jun 24 - 2:00 AM

Yovani Gallardo picked up his first career save with three scoreless innings Friday against the Astros.

Gallardo, demoted to the pen earlier this week, made his first relief appearance since making three as a rookie in 2007 and finished off the Mariners' 13-3 win. Obviously, three three-inning blowout saves are the only ones that he's a candidate for.
