Kyle Seager went 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI as the Mariners beat the A's 11-8 on Friday.

Seager has give homers in nine games, upping his season total to 22. He also delivered his 30th double in this one. He's basically hitting just as well as he did last year, with the caveat that much of his production has come with the bases empty. He has just 59 RBI in 134 games after driving in 96 runs last season.

Edgar Olmos surrendered five runs -- four earned -- in 1 1/3 innings Friday in his start against the A's.

It's anyone's guess why the Mariners are giving starts to Olmos. He made just two in Triple-A this year after making none in the minors for the Marlins in 2013 and 2014. He's not going to be anything more than a reliever going forward, and it sure seems like the Mariners have better options to start in his place now.

Stefen Romero went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI after replacing an injured Franklin Gutierrez on Friday.

It was just the second appearance of the season for Romero, who played in 72 games for the Mariners a year ago. He'll get some starts versus lefties down the stretch, but it doesn't seem likely that he'll have much AL-only fantasy value.
Sep 5 - 2:07 AM

Franklin Gutierrez left Friday's game because of right groin tightness.

The Mariners haven't been able to resist overusing Gutierrez of late, so it was only a matter of time until something like this happened. Fortunately, this is probably a day-to-day injury, rather than something that will sideline him for weeks.
Sep 5 - 2:05 AM

Nelson Cruz (quad) reported feeling improvement in his injured quadriceps on Friday, but is still expected to need another few days before rejoining the Mariners lineup.

Cruz suffered the strained right quad while running the bases during Wednesday's game. It sounds as though he could be held out for the remainder of the M's weekend series against the Athletics.
Sep 4 - 11:40 PM

Mariners activated LHP Joe Beimel from the 15-day disabled list.

Beimel has missed the last couple weeks with a shoulder injury. He returns to a 4.78 ERA over 42 appearances this season.
Sep 4 - 5:54 PM

Taijuan Walker (hip) allowed three earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Astros.

Seattle wound up winning the game 8-3. Walker pitched good but not great, allowing five hits, walking three, and striking out three while pitching into the seventh inning against a first-place Astros team. The young right-hander left his last start early with cramping in his right hip flexor, but it was obviously nothing too serious. He'll take on the Rangers at home next week.
Sep 3 - 9:03 AM

Logan Morrison came off the bench to walk and then hit a three-run homer Wednesday in the Mariners' 8-3 win over the Astros.

Morrison also homered in his lone at-bat Tuesday. He has 15 homers this season, six of which have come against the Astros. He's likely going to resume playing against most righties with Jesus Montero down (and nearly out).
Sep 3 - 12:31 AM

Tom Wilhelmsen got a five-out save Wednesday against the Astros.

Wilhelmsen came into a 5-3 game in the eighth and then stayed in after the Mariners made it 8-3 in the top of the ninth. Thanks to the Mariners' recent run, he's managed to notch six saves in the last 11 days.
Sep 3 - 12:29 AM

Shawn O'Malley went 3-for-4 with a walk, a steal and two runs scored in his first big-league start Wednesday against the Astros.

O'Malley was called up Tuesday after hitting .297/.345/.413 as a 27-year-old in the PCL. He's a future 25th man at best, but with Austin Jackson gone, he could have some AL-only value the rest of the way.
Sep 3 - 12:25 AM

Nelson Cruz left Wednesday's game with a strained right quad.

Cruz singled and ran the bases in the top of the seventh inning and apparently injured the quad during that time. The severity of the injury should be better known in the coming days.
Sep 2 - 10:56 PM

James Paxton (finger) left his minor league start Wednesday with a blister.

It was originally feared Paxton might have aggravated a finger tendon injury that has kept him out since May, but a blister is a much better scenario. He'll be re-evaluated Thursday, but it's not likely to be the kind of thing that will keep him down for long.
Sep 2 - 10:39 PM

James Paxton (finger) left his minor league rehab start with an apparent injury Wednesday.

Paxton, pitching for Triple-A Tacoma, threw a pitch in the fourth inning before leaving with a trainer. The trainer was looking at his left hand, the same hand that has kept him out since late May due to a strained tendon in his middle finger. More should be known soon, but it certainly isn't a promising development for the 26-year-old.
Sep 2 - 10:14 PM

Mariners optioned 1B/DH Jesus Montero to Triple-A Tacoma.

After getting off to a nice start, Montero has been struggling of late and not seeing much playing time. He'll play regularly for Tacoma in their final few games before rejoining the big club.
Sep 2 - 2:13 PM

James Paxton (finger) is expected to rejoin the Mariners' rotation next week.

Paxton has yielded four runs over just 3 2/3 innings in his two rehab starts with Triple-A Tacoma. He's been on the shelf since late May due to a strained tendon in his left middle finger and the Mariners plan to have him pitching in the Arizona Fall League and winter ball in order to make up for lost time.
