Leonys Martin (hamstring) only expects to miss a couple of games.

Martin was lifted from Wednesday's defeat of the Athletics after tweaking his left hamstring while running the bases in the bottom of the third inning. "They decided to take me out of the game to be smart," the hot-hitting center fielder said late Wednesday. "But I hope to be back in a few days. We've got a day off tomorrow and we'll see. This is the first time I've had this happen, but it'll be all right."

Adam Lind went 4-for-4 with two homers and six RBI to help propel the Mariners past the A's 13-3 on Wednesday.

Between his steady track record and the Mariners' fine start, Lind hasn't lost playing time to Dae Ho Lee at first base. He really should consider himself lucky, given that he entered the night with a .216/.246/.319 line. Of course, even if Lee does seem capable, Lind was always the better bet as a starter against righties. He should be solid from here on out.

Hisashi Iwakuma surrendered three runs over seven innings Wednesday versus the A's.

Iwakuma beat the A's for the second time this month to run his record to 3-4 with a 4.33 ERA. He has an even tastier matchup with a start against the Padres due up next.

Leonys Martin left Wednesday's game against the A's with a tweaked left hamstring.

Martin was replaced in center field by Shawn O'Malley to start the fourth inning. Prior to leaving with what the Mariners are deeming a minor injury, Martin had continued his recent hot-hitting ways with a third-inning RBI single and a stolen base. Seattle is labeling him day-to-day.

Charlie Furbush (shoulder) felt soreness following a live batting practice session last Thursday.

"I thought I had a good live BP, but they just wanted me to speak with the team doctor and not have to worry about it and have it set me back at all," Furbush said. "So I'm just taking a couple days off here. [The doctor will] see me again this weekend and I'll be right back at it as soon as I get the clearance." Once he receives the clearance, he will likely head to Arizona to take part in extended spring training action, with a rehab assignment to follow that.

Mariners optioned SS Chris Taylor to Triple-A Tacoma.

Luis Sardinas was called up as the corresponding roster move. Taylor spent just five days on the major league roster before being sent back down. In 84 career games in the bigs, the 25-year-old shortstop owns a .240/.296/.296 triple-slash. He managed a single in three at-bats during his most recent cup of coffee with Seattle.

Mariners recalled INF Luis Sardinas from Triple-A Tacoma.

Chris Taylor has been optioned to Triple-A as the corresponding roster move. Earlier this season, the 23-year-old Sardinas saw 26 at-bats with the M's and managed just four hits in that space. While he could see his share of playing time until Ketel Marte (thumb) is ready to return, Sardinas has yet to find the sort of major league success that would make him a palatable fantasy option.

Leonys Martin hit a walk-off two-run home run in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the A's.

Martin had just one hit on the evening, but boy howdy, it was a big one. Down 5-4 with one on and two outs in the ninth inning, the 28-year-old outfielder stood as the Mariners' last line of defense against a probable loss. He would make sure that no defeat came their way, cracking a two-run walk-off dinger to deep right off A's closer Ryan Madson to end the game. Of lesser import, the homer pushed Martin to an eight-game hitting streak. He is slashing .259/.337/.483 with nine homers, 19 RBI and seven steals over 143 at-bats. The nine homers already stand as a career best for Martin.
May 25 - 1:49 AM

Nathan Karns was unable to earn his fifth victory of the season in taking a no-decision against the A's on Tuesday, surrendering three runs on five hits over five-plus innings.

Karns came out to start the sixth inning and immediately ran into trouble, allowing back-to-back singles to Stephen Vogt and Danny Valencia. He was lifted for reliever Nick Vincent at that point, with Vincent subsequently allowing a sacrifice fly to Khris Davis to account for the third and final run on Karns' line. For the season, the 28-year-old right-hander holds a 3.53 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 51/20 K/BB ratio over nine starts (51 innings). A Memorial Day home date with the Padres shows next on his schedule.

Mariners 3B prospect D.J. Peterson finished a triple shy of the cycle Monday in a win for Double-A Jackson.

He's hit .500 with four RBI during his four-game hitting streak. Peterson has upped his average from .213 to .242 over that span. The 24-year-old smacked 31 homers in 2014 but came crashing back to Earth with only seven in 2015. The former first-round pick is a .269 career hitter in the minor leagues.

Taijuan Walker was charged with five runs -- one earned -- in 7 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the A's.

It'd probably be for the best if unearned runs were simply abolished from our precious statistics, but then every once in a while, you get a situation in which a pitcher is charged with a bunch of runs that he had very little hand in. That was the case with Walker tonight. It took two Chris Taylor errors to open the door for a four-run eighth inning, and with runners on second and third with one out, manager Scott Servais had Walker intentionally walk the light-hitting Billy Burns before pulling him. All three baserunners later came around to score against the pen. Walker deserved much better, but at least the festivities didn't hurt his ERA.

Leonys Martin went 4-for-5 with a run scored in Sunday's win over the Reds.

All four of Martin's hits went for singles. He entered Sunday hitting just .231, but exited the win with a slightly less flimsy average of .252. The 28-year-old outfielder isn't a fantasy stud by any stretch of the imagination, but he is in line to rack up double-digit homers and double-digit steals this season.
May 22 - 5:19 PM

Wade Miley couldn't quite manage a quality start in Sunday's win over the Reds, yielding four runs on eight hits over six innings.

Miley allowed three runs in the first inning courtesy of a two-run double by Brandon Phillips and a sacrifice fly by Joey Votto. The Reds wouldn't score again until the fourth inning, when Adam Duvall cracked a solo home run. For the season, Miley holds an utterly average 4.50 ERA and 1.23 WHIP across nine starts. A home date with the Twins awaits him next time he toes the rubber.
May 22 - 5:07 PM

Mariners RHP prospect Art Warren scattered two hits over seven scoreless frames Saturday in a win for Low-A Clinton.

He struck out six and didn't allow a walk. Warren leads the Midwest League with five wins and is fifth in ERA (1.12). Warren has allowed one run or fewer in seven of his eight starts. Saturday's seven-inning effort matched his longest start of the season. The 23-year-old has never lost a start in his minor league career.

Mariners OF prospect Alex Jackson blasted his second home run of the year Saturday in a win for Low-A Clinton.

Jackson has homered in two of three games since joining the LumberKings on Thursday. The 20-year-old spent the first six weeks of the year in extended spring training. Jackson looked like he was in over his head last season, batting only .157 in 108 at-bats for Clinton. He was Seattle's first-round pick in 2014.
