Nelson Cruz is expected to return to the Mariners' lineup on Saturday after sitting out due to a hamstring cramp on Friday.

The lineup hasn't been released yet, but Cruz told reporters that he's good to go. The 36-year-old is hitting .305/.400/.561 with five homers and 19 RBI through his first 23 games of the season.

Mariners recalled OF Boog Powell from Triple-A Tacoma.

With Mitch Haniger on the disabled list and Nelson Cruz nursing a minor injury, Powell will provide depth in the outfield for a couple of days. The 24-year-old was hitting .261/.424/.326 with no homers, four RBI and five stolen bases in 14 games at Triple-A Tacoma.

Mariners placed RHP Evan Scribner on the 10-day disabled list with a flexor bundle strain in his right elbow.

The 31-year-old hurler has been a disaster in his eight appearances with the Mariners this season, compiling an 11.05 ERA, 1.77 WHIP and 6/0 K/BB ratio in 7 1/3 innings. It's unclear at the moment just how long he'll be sidelined.

Robinson Cano clobbered a two-run homer on Friday, helping to lead the Mariners to a 3-1 victory over the Indians.

Cano opened the game's scoring in the fourth inning with a two-run shot off of Carlos Carrasco which proved to be the difference in the ballgame. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the night. Cano is now hitting .253/.321/.432 with four homers and 17 RBI on the season.
Apr 28 - 10:51 PM

Ben Gamel launched his first career home run as the Mariners topped the Indians in Cleveland on Friday.

His solo shot off of Carlos Carrasco in the sixth inning increased the M's advantage to 3-1. Gamel also doubled in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored. He'll continue to get an opportunity for the next three or four weeks while Mitch Haniger is sidelined and could be worth a look in AL-only formats.
Apr 28 - 10:49 PM

Edwin Diaz earned his fourth save of the season on Friday, recording the final four outs to preserve a two-run victory over the Indians.

Diaz was called upon to face Edwin Encarnacion in the eighth inning with a runner at second base and he responded by striking him out. He then stayed in for the night, striking out a pair and getting a weak pop up. Diaz owns a 3.60 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 12/5 K/BB ratio through 10 innings on the year while converting four of his first five save chances.
Apr 28 - 10:46 PM

Ariel Miranda earned his second victory of the season on Friday, scattering two hits and two walks over 5 1/3 innings of one-run baseball.

Miranda punched out seven in the impressive outing. The only blemish on his night came in the form of a solo home run by Jose Ramirez in the fourth inning. The left-hander will carry a 3.81 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 24/7 K/BB ratio into Thursday's showdown against the Angels.
Apr 28 - 10:41 PM

The Mariners announced Friday that Felix Hernandez has been diagnosed with bursitis in his shoulder and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks.

The veteran right-hander has forced to leave his start on Tuesday due to fatigue in his shoulder. Chase De Jong is expected to hold down his spot in the rotation for the next couple of weeks but doesn't make for an appealing fantasy option.
Apr 28 - 6:31 PM

The Mariners announced Friday that Mitch Haniger has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 oblique strain.

That's what was initially suspected and means the outfielder is expected to miss 3-4 weeks of action. The hard-hitting rookie was sizzling at the plate to start the season, hitting .338/.442/.600 with four homers and 16 RBI.
Apr 28 - 6:24 PM

Nelson Cruz was scratched from Friday's lineup with a cramp in his hamstring.

He should be back in there in a day or two as long as it's indeed merely a cramp. Taylor Motter has taken Cruz's spot in the lineup.
Apr 28 - 3:44 PM

Ben Gamel is starting in right field and batting second for the Mariners on Friday.

It's the third straight start he's made in right since Mitch Haniger (oblique) went down but the first time he's been in the No. 2 spot. He'll square off against Carlos Carrasco and the Indians.
Apr 28 - 3:29 PM

Kyle Seager doubled and scored the go-ahead run in the ninth as the Mariners edged the Tigers 2-1 on Thursday.

Seager also singled in the Mariners' first run of the game in the sixth inning. It was his first appearance in five days because of a sore hip.
Apr 27 - 5:55 PM

Hisashi Iwakuma yielded an unearned run and three hits over 5 2/3 innings Thursday in his start against the Tigers.

Though the velocity isn't there, Iwakuma has had just one bad outing to date, that coming against the Rangers on Apr. 16. He's not recommended in fantasy leagues, but it's impressive that he's holding his own given his current stuff.
Apr 27 - 5:53 PM

Mariners sent OF Leonys Martin outright to Triple-A Tacoma.

Martin was designated for assignment by Seattle earlier this week after batting .111/.172/.130 over his first 58 plate appearances. The 29-year-old outfielder passed through waivers unclaimed primarily because he's making a $4.85 million salary in 2017. He should get another shot with the Mariners at some point this summer.
Apr 27 - 3:01 PM

Mariners activated RHP Robert Whalen from the 10-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Tacoma.

Whalen is recovered from his spring calf strain, but there's not a spot for him right now at the major league level. He'll work as a starter at Tacoma.
