Robinson Cano optimistic about Mariners' season

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) Robinson Cano's 13th major league season starts Sunday when the Seattle Mariners gather as a full squad for the first team workout of spring training, and the seven-time All-Star was all smiles after arriving at team headquarters.

Ryne Harper: The Boy Who Couldn’t Get Past Double-A

The long-lost book in the Matt Christopher Series Back on December 4, 2015, sandwiched between sending Mark Trumbo packing for Baltimore and jettisoning fan favorites Carson Smith and Roenis Elias to Boston in return for veteran innings-eater Wade Miley, to nobody's surprise, the Mariners shipped unimpressive bullpen arm Jose Ramirez to Atlanta for a PTBNL. Exactly one week later...

Mariners’ Tuffy Gosewisch provides scouting reports on fellow former D-Backs Segura and Haniger

As one of three players on the Mariners’ roster who played with the Arizona Diamondbacks last season, catcher Tuffy Gosewisch probably is more familiar with the other two than anybody else at the team’s spring training. According to Gosewisch, the third catcher on the depth chart for Seattle, the Mariners should be plenty happy with their acquisitions of Jean Segura and Mitch...

40 in 40: Guillermo Heredia

The journey has been long, but it’s only just begun Baseball, for all the questions of its origins, began as an American sport, albeit with some aid from a British schoolyard game. It’s nearly impossible to discern the precise time period when the game began to spread beyond the borders of the United States but due to geographic proximity, and relative political and economic...

Scott Servais: Mariners’ Hisashi Iwakuma looking to show ‘he can carry that workload’ again in 2017

With the attention in the Mariners’ starting rotation over the offseason focused mostly on new faces and Felix Hernandez’s workouts, Hisashi Iwakuma has slipped under the radar. Judging by the fact that he was over a week early to the team’s spring training complex in Peoria, Ariz., he isn’t planning on keeping it that way. Iwakuma may be nearing his 36th birthday (it’s...

Mariners' Iwakuma ready to shoulder load again if needed

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) Pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma was a major reason the Seattle Mariners stayed in the race for an American League wild-card playoff spot until the second-to-last day of the 2016 season.

Under the Greydar: The Inevitable James Paxton Column

Way back in January, when the very first signs of ADP data sprouted out of the ground, I went down the rabbit hole, hoping to catch a glimpse of early signs of value. ADP at that point was more convoluted than forming an expectation for how much Pablo Sandoval would weigh coming into Spring Training, but since it was the only sign we had as to the 'market' rate for various players...

Robinson Cano’s 2016 Season Was a Flashback to His Yankee Days

Handing out a lucrative, multi-year contract to a player is always risky for an MLB organization, no matter how much of a no-brainer it appears to be. That risk factor goes through the roof when it’s a 10-year, $240 million deal, like the one Robinson Cano signed prior to the 2014 season. In situations like this — when a player signs a long-term deal on the wrong side of 30...
