Banged-up Mariners conclude series vs. Indians

Seattle recalled David Freitas so the club has two healthy catchers on the roster, but the majority of the playing time will likely fall to Mike Marjama, who received high praise for jumping into a hard situation on opening night and catching Felix Hernandez for the first time in a game. Trevor Bauer wasn't sharp, their relievers kept giving up home runs and they couldn't get Edwin Encarnacion to the plate enough.

Cruz slipped on the bottom stair of the Mariners' dugout on Saturday and sprained his ankle, which forced him from the game. And they defeated the Indians with new first baseman Ryon Healy going 0-for-11 and Kyle Seager getting only one hit, a bad-hopper that went over Indians first baseman Alonso's head.

If a theme can be deduced from the Mariners first three games, it's that surprises could be in store on a daily basis.

The Mariners lost Saturday afternoon 6-5 to the Cleveland Indians, but the play heard 'round baseball belonged to Ichiro.

The Indians led 2-0 after four innings.

Cruz homered in each of the first two games of the season.

The Mariners have elected to place catcher Mike Zunino on the 10-day DL with a left oblique strain, per a club announcement.

Zunino's wasn't even the most odd of Mariners injuries in the past week.

The one Cactus League game I attended in Peoria, Haniger threw out runners at second and third.

Freitas has played for six different organizations and made his major league debut last August with the Atlanta Braves, where he had four hits in 17 at-bats and drove in two runs. With Healy, it might take more time for him to get into a groove since his spring training was cut short by hand surgery. "I'm seeing the ball good and I want to continue to be that consistent".

"That slide catch was pretty cool", Gordon said. And he had two other catches running back to the wall, as well. He's been a pretty sure-thing to get 185 innings a year. Seager and Segura had two hits apiece.

The series had a little bit of everything for the Mariners: Terrific starting pitching by Felix Hernandez and Mike Leake, who earned the victory Sunday with a seven-inning effort against a superior lineup. Haniger went 5-for-8 and 3-for-3 against 2017 Cy Young Award victor Corey Kluber.
