Ryan Weber has elected free agency.

The 27-year-old spent the majority of the 2017 season at Triple-A Tacoma, compiling an outstanding 0.85 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 19/4 K/BB ratio in 31 2/3 innings. He should have several offers coming his way this off-season.
Oct 21 - 2:47 PM

Cody Martin has elected free agency.

Martin, 28, appeared in just one game for the Mariners, allowing four runs (three earned) in his two innings of work. He's nothing more than organizational bullpen depth at this stage.
Oct 21 - 2:45 PM

Ernesto Frieri has elected free agency.

The 32-year-old hurler hasn't been relevant in fantasy leagues since the 2014 season, but does have valuable closer's experience in the past. That should be enough to land him a minor league deal with a spring training invite this winter.
Oct 21 - 2:44 PM

Christian Bergman has elected free agency.

The 29-year-old right-hander posted a 5.00 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 33/15 K/BB ratio across his 54 innings with the M's. He remains irrelevant for fantasy purposes.
Oct 21 - 2:41 PM

Yonder Alonso would be happy to return to the Mariners as a free agent this winter.

"I love it here," Alonso said. "It's awesome, a first-class group, and they treated me well. I'd love to be back here. I think the future here is very bright, and we're very close to winning, and I would definitely want to be a part of that." The Mariners figure to have some interest in keeping him, but it'll depend on what kind of offers he gets. He'll be an interesting case, as he's typically been a below average regular apart from the first half of this season.
Oct 12 - 5:58 PM

Guillermo Heredia underwent surgery Monday to repair a Bankart lesion in his right shoulder.

Heredia suffered the injury last month. He will begin rehabbing immediately and is expected to be 100 percent for spring training.
Oct 9 - 7:56 PM

Mariners released LHP Brad Mills.

The 32-year-old southpaw posted a 5.28 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 32/22 K/BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings at Triple-A Tacoma in 2017. He'll look to latch on elsewhere on a minor league pact.
Oct 7 - 8:21 AM

Felix Hernandez will be managed differently in 2018 in hopes of keeping him healthy throughout the year.

Hernandez struggled with injuries in 2017, and even when he was on the mound, he didn't look anything like the "King." Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto said the new plan could mean giving Hernandez an extra day of rest between starts, or possibly skipping him in the rotation entirely. Injuries like shoulder bursitis don't go away, so the days of Hernandez being the inning-eating ace sadly could be a thing of the past forever.
Oct 4 - 5:03 PM

The Mariners announced Tuesday that bench coach Tim Bogar and first base coach Casey Candaele will not return in 2018.

Bogar served as the bench coach for the past two seasons while Candaele was on the staff for one year. Manager Scott Servias will return as well as coaches Manny Acta, Scott Brosius, Chris Prieto, Edgar Martinez, Mel Stottlemyre. The Mariners will also be looking for a new bullpen coach.
Oct 3 - 11:48 AM

Nelson Cruz went 0-for-3 on Sunday with a strikeout in a loss to the Angels.

Cruz ended the hear with 39 homers, which is good, but it's slightly disappointing as he finishes short of 40 homers for the first time in 2013. It was still an outstanding season for the designated hitter, and despite the fact he'll turn 38 next year, he's still an offensive force who can help you in every category but stolen bases.
Oct 1 - 6:11 PM

James Paxton got a hard no-decision on Sunday, striking out nine over six scoreless innings in a loss to the Angels.

Paxton did what he did for most of the 2016 season: Throw strikes and miss bats. Unfortunately, the Mariner offense was shut down by Parker Bridwell. When Paxton is healthy, he has some of the best stuff of any southpaw in the American League. The issue is, he hasn't shown he can stay healthy for a full season yet. At 28-years-old, you have to wonder if he'll ever be able to show this kind of stuff for a full season. IF he can, look out.
Oct 1 - 6:00 PM

Jacob Hannemann had just one hit in four at-bats Saturday against the Angels, but it was good for his first-career major league home run.

Hannemann was claimed off waivers from the Chicago Cubs earlier in the month. He has decent speed and he'll likely get a chance to win a reserve outfielder job in spring training heading into 2018.
Oct 1 - 3:12 AM

Yonder Alonso finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's road victory against the Angels.

Alonso smacked his 28th homer while driving in his 67th run. It has been an amazing breakout season for Alonso at the age of 30 after he managed just 39 homers through his first 664 major league games over parts of seven years in the majors.
Oct 1 - 3:08 AM

Mitch Haniger finished with three doubles, two singles and a run scored across five at-bats in Saturday's road win against the Angels.

Haniger is finishing up his season strong, hitting .365 with 17 runs scored, eight doubles, a triple, seven homers and 14 RBI in the month of September. He has four games with at least three hits in September, and 13 multi-hit games in the month.
Oct 1 - 3:06 AM

Andrew Albers allowed three earned runs, six hits and a walk with five strikeouts over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision Saturday on the road against the Angels.

It wasn't a great finish, but it was still a very successful campaign overall for Albers. He finished 5-1 with a 3.51 ERA and 1.29 WHIP across 41 innings over five starts and four relief appearances. He'll likely vie for a rotation job in spring training heading into the 2018 season.
