Fantasy Team Preview: Seattle Mariners

0

Nick Shlain

Two studs on the mound, two more at the plate, and notes on the rest of the Emerald City players who could hold fantasy value next year.

Staring a fifth consecutive fourth-place finish in the American League West in the face, the Mariners went out last offseason and signed Robinson Cano to the fourth-largest contract in baseball history at the time. The addition of Cano, a bullpen resurgence, and outstanding pitching from Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma led Seattle to a 16-win improvement in 2014. Approaching the offseason from the other side of the win curve now, the Mariners could eschew a big splash signing to merely fill their holes—designated hitter, shortstop, first base—and make it to the postseason. Before they make their moves, though, let’s take a look at the relevant fantasy players currently under the Mariners’ control.

Pitching Backward: First-Pitching to the Situation

11

Jeff Long

A first attempt at measuring how much different pitchers pitch to the situation--and the questions it raises.

A few weeks ago I wrote about James Shields’ success with runners in scoring position, specifically noting how it coincided (causation or not) to a change in the righty’s approach. This led down a deep, dark rabbit hole in which the BP research staff helped me compile a more exhaustive list of how pitchers changed their tendencies in these situations. The full data set includes the absolute changes in pitch selection in several different count situations (first pitch, pitcher ahead, count even, batter ahead, etc.); for this particular post, though, I’ll focus on just one of these subcategories: first pitches.

Today, we honor the final appearance of a legend, a leader, an amazing ambassador to the game. Stand and cheer for the last Hit List of the year.

The View from the Loge Level: The Alex Jackson Interviews

2

Daron Sutton

The Mariners' top pick talks about transitioning from catcher to outfield--and from prep baseball to the pros.

Those who sit in this Loge Level openly admit to having an unprofessional bias favoring pitchers and catchers. That mindset really finds itself challenged when the realization hits that a talented prospect can work on either end of the battery but instead heads in a different direction. Twins no. 1 pick Nick Gordon was the top high school bat grabbed in the 2014 draft, but don’t overlook that he once touched 94 on the mound. Then there’s Alex Jackson, who was up next at sixth overall to the Mariners, and left the prep ranks as the nation's top catcher. A pitcher and a catcher are now a shortstop and an outfielder? How can this be? I guess we’ll get over it—after all, the brats and dogs are really unforgettable at the stand at the top of aisle 105, and this always seems to distract us.

Having a chance to speak with Jackson in June 2013 at the Perfect Game National Showcase, and then again this past Sunday night as part of the SiriusXM show MLB Roundtrip with Baseball Prospectus presented by Perfect Game, provided a unique perspective into this prospect’s development. First of all, the move that I sarcastically scolded above was a move that did not come as a huge surprise. He ran a 6.83 60 at the showcase and threw 98 mph from the outfield as well, proving as a catcher that he was truly athletic enough to move. But heading into his senior year at San Diego’s Rancho Bernardo HS, he was all in on wearing the gear.

What do we do when our sport makes terrible people rich?

While looking toward the future with our comprehensive slate of current content, we'd also like to recognize our rich past by drawing upon our extensive (and mostly free) online archive of work dating back to 1997. In an effort to highlight the best of what's gone before, we'll be bringing you a weekly blast from BP's past, introducing or re-introducing you to some of the most informative and entertaining authors who have passed through our virtual halls. If you have fond recollections of a BP piece that you'd like to nominate for re-exposure to a wider audience, send us your suggestion.

In separate pieces in 2000 and 2004, Derek Zumsteg wrote the following features on the difficulty of rooting for players we might despise. In the first piece, he writes about the Mariners signing an accused wife beater. In the second, he revisits that move after the Mariners signed another player with a violent past. Both pieces, and the conclusions he ultimately draws, are still relevant in the wake of this week's NFL news.

A classic BP piece on "what could one day be looked back upon as a slice of history."

On August 5, 2005, Baseball Prospectus published the following feature on some random Mariners game, chosen that week for Jonah Keri's Prospectus Game of the Week feature. Okay, not quite some random game. Felix Hernandez was making his first ever start in Seattle that day.
