Mariners Milestones, Movement and M*A*S*H on a Monday

Some interesting milestones, in no particular order, are starting to stack up (courtesy M’s twitter unless otherwise noted) . . .

milestones

  • Mariners pitching staff tied a club record by recording TEN shutouts prior to the All Star Break (also done in 2002 and 2003)
  • First season since 1999 FIVE or more Mariners have at least TEN homers before the All Star Break (Raul-24, Kyle-15, Kendrys-14, Michael M-11, Jason-11)
  • Mariners are on pace to hit 197 homers ~ their record at Safeco Field is 198 in 2000, first full season there (via Larry Stone tweet)
  • Brad Miller’s SIX extra base hits in his first ELEVEN games ties him for 2nd all time in M’s history (Alvin Davis has NINE in his first ELEVEN in 1984)
  • Mike Zunino is the 3rd-youngest player in M’s history with a walk-off RBI (June 28th v Cubs)
  • Kyle Seager became the 12th player in M’s history to record 100 or more hits before the All Star Game
  • Kyle currently has a FOURTEEN game hitting streak going . . . one of THREE players in MLB that have had  separate hitting streaks of TEN or more games this season
  • Raul Ibanez became the 5th player in Mariners history to collect 200 or more doubles and 150 or more homers (joining Jr, Jay and Alvin)

MASH

 15-day DL
* Franklin Gutierrez (hamstring) will work out over the break then start a(nother) rehab assignment in Tacoma
* Michael Morse (quad) not yet ready for rehab
* Jesus Sucre (hand) way past his eligible return but, haven’t seen any updates

60-day DL
* Stephen Pryor (lat) pitched in a simulated game last week and will pitch one game for Everett this week and then complete his rehab in Tacoma (hopefully, all goes well as he will be a HUGE boost to the bullpen when ready)
