2/14/24 Mariners spring training preview: Will Mitch Garver solve the DH problem?. When Nelson Cruz played his last game as a member of the Mariners in 2018, the organization decided to shift away from having a full-time designated hitter. Instead of finding another slugger that could be a daily presence in the lineup, a hitter that they likely couldn't afford or convince to sign, the front office decided to turn the DH into a revolving role where position players could get “rest” days and still be in the lineup and manager Scott Servais could take advantage of matchups vs. that day's opposing starting pitcher. In 2018, Cruz played in 136 games as the Mariners' designated hitter, amassing 572 plate appearances with a .255/.343/.511 slash line with 18 doubles, 36 homers, 95 RBI, 54 walks and 116 strikeouts.
2/14/24 Mariners spring training preview: Will Mitch Garver solve the DH problem?. The Mariners have been without a full-time DH for the last five seasons. But after signing slugger Mitch Garver in the offseason, Seattle should have a steady pressence in the lineup this year.
2/07/24 Astros Projected to Bury Rangers in AL West. The Rangers made the list, though not necessarily in a good way. The projection is that Texas will win about 86 games, finishing nine games behind the Astros in the American League West. It's not that surprising that the Texas Rangers are projected for "only" 86 wins, because they won 90 last year with a lot of things going right, and so far this winter they've subtracted Mitch Garver, Aroldis Chapman and Jordan Montgomery while possibly having Corey Seager limited by injury. It's that they're this far behind the Astros, because Texas' lineup looks absolutely loaded, especially with young outfielders Evan Carter and Wyatt Langford around for most or all of the season, and it should get some all-time great starting pitchers returning from injury as the season goes on.
1/31/24 Garver has interesting insight on Seattle Mariners' pitchers, trades. New Mariners DH Mitch Garver joined Seattle Sports' Hot Stove on Tuesday night, and he gave up the goods in a fun, insightful, two-segment visit. Salk: Did Seattle Mariners 'find a way' to get better this offseason? As it turns out, Garver's wife went into labor in Colorado while he was flying to Seattle to take the team physical and sign his contract. “The Mariners were great,” Garver said.
1/05/24 Mariners trade Robbie Ray to Giants, José Caballero to Rays in pair of Friday moves to bring Mitch Haniger home. After signing Mitch Garver on Christmas Eve, the Seattle Mariners have continued to pick up the pace of their off-season, completing two swaps today with the San Francisco Giants and Tampa Bay Rays. It started with the Mariners sending the prized off-season acquisition of 2022, Robbie Ray, to the Giants. After missing basically all of 2023 with flexor tendon surgery, Ray should be back to full health by mid-season and will help prop up a Giants rotation that's been held down by Logan Webb, the dark pact Alex Cobb signed with a sea witch for eternal youth, and not a lot else, thanks to some misses in player development.
