st11 | good signs, even in loss

Mariners 5 | Giants 7

Sometimes, OK most times, spring training is about individual prep and progress rather than team results.

Today was such a day.  Granted, Felix’s line was nothing too special but, he threw 53 pitches in 4 full innings and got that much closer to being ready for Opening Day in just over two weeks! Eric Wedge had this to say after the game…

“He threw the ball well again today, used all his pitches, so he’s right on target,” Wedge said. “He’ll be ready to go out there and pitch as long as we need him to, once we get to Japan. We’ve had him and [Jason] Vargas as well as a few other guys mapped out for quite a while. So he’s right on line.”

Now, as for the bullpen…

seems they’ll need a bit more prepping as 2 of the 4 gave up 2 runs, 1 gave up 1 and the other walked 2

Seems the outfield competition just gets more heated by the day…

Saunders with another 2 hits, a runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base

Robinson went 3 for 4 with a home run and a double

And, Catricala continued his hot hitting…

with another 2 hits including a double
