Skewed Left: A Meeting of the Mariner DHs

Zachary Levine

Several DHs enter. All of them leave.

[February 16, 2013. Peoria Sports Complex. The Mariners have all reported for their first mandatory full-squad session, which has divided into position groups for pre-workout meetings. Outfielders are on Field 2 with first base coach MIKE BRUMLEY. Infielders are on Field 1 with bench coach ROBBY THOMPSON, pitchers and catchers are in the bullpen.

Scene opens in the coaches’ conference room where the designated hitters are having their meeting. DAVE HANSEN is addressing KENDRYS MORALES, JESUS MONTERO, RAUL IBANEZ and JASON BAY, who are all seated around a table in full uniform.]

Raising Aces: Bush League: Jameson Taillon and Taijuan Walker

11

Doug Thorburn

Sofa-scouting the mechanics of two high-profile pitching prospects.

In the first edition of Bush League, I discussed the viability of sofa-scouting high-level prospects by scouring the archives of MiLB.tv (for a modest subscription price). I also noted the advantages when evaluating pitchers as compared to position players, given the additional off-camera variables that exist for scouting hitting and defense, along with the caveat that pitchers can have volatile mechanics during their development years. The subjects of the original piece included the top two picks from the 2011 draft, Gerrit Cole and Danny Hultzen, and today we’ll take a look at another Pirate-Mariner combination of high-end pitching prospects.

Jameson Taillon and Taijuan Walker were both high-school products of the 2010 draft. Taillon was selected at number two overall by the Pirates, behind top pick Bryce Harper, and Walker was chosen 41 picks later by the Mariners during the supplemental round. I reviewed both pitchers back in July with a brief study of their back-to-back one-inning stints in the Futures Game, and the early returns were impressive. The mechanics of minor-league players are fickle and a pitcher might show different looks on any given day, especially when making a rare relief appearance in a nationally-televised showcase, so the offseason presents a great opportunity to take a deeper look into the performances of these two high-profile prospects.

The Orioles play deep into the night and emerge with yet another extra-inning victory.

The Tuesday, er, Wednesday Takeaway
It took five hours and 44 minutes, 16 pitchers, and 536 pitches, but when all was said and done at Safeco Field early Wednesday morning, the Orioles came away with their 14th consecutive extra-inning victory and their third in a row overall.

Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez kept the visitors off the scoreboard for the first eight innings of the game and carried a 2-0 lead into the ninth thanks to Miguel Olivo’s fourth-inning homer, but he could not complete the shutout. A two-run single by Chris Davis, off closer Tom Wilhelmsen, knotted the tally at 2-2. Then the madness began.

Felix Hernandez wasn't wild on Wednesday, but this image of him is. In a good way.

Felix Hernandez was not, himself, a wild thing on Wednesday, when he beat the Rays without allowing a baserunner (or "pitched a perfect game," as we say in the biz). He threw 113 pitches, and 77 of them were strikes. He went to only three three-ball counts.

The Process: The Mariners' Missed Opportunity

39

Bradley Ankrom

Dealing Felix Hernandez at this year's non-waiver trade deadline could have significantly brightened the Mariners' future.

A true no. 1 starter is the rarest commodity in baseball, and the Seattle Mariners have had one in Felix Hernandez for the better part of a decade. Unfortunately, much of Hernandez’s value has been wasted on uncompetitive clubs: only twice since he reached the big leagues in 2005 have the Mariners finished above .500.

The subject of dealing their homegrown superstar is a sensitive one for Mariners fans, but an objective look at the facts suggests that the future of the organization would be much brighter if general manager Jack Zduriencik had moved Hernandez to a contender for a package of young impact bats that are close to big-league ready prior to this summer's non-waiver trade deadline.
