Revisiting preseason questions: Mariners

In mid-February, we wondered if Jerry Dipoto's rash of moves would pay dividends with a contending team. So far, the answer has been a resounding no.

Diaz close to regaining Mariners' closer role

Less than a week after removing Edwin Diaz from the closer role, Mariners manager Scott Servais said the hard-throwing right-hander is close to regaining the job.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Mariners P Christian Bergman, making just his second start with Seattle, pitched 7 1/3 shutout innings and struck out nine in a 4-0 win vs. the A's on Wednesday. Per the Elias Sports Bureau, Bergman is the first pitcher in Mariners history to not allow a run while registering at least nine strikeouts in one of his first two starts with the team.

Mariners drop struggling Diaz from closer role

Mariners manager Scott Servais said the team will use a committee in save situations while Edwin Diaz works to change his mechanics. Servais removed Diaz from the closer role on Tuesday.

This is Robinson Cano's first DL stint in nearly 11 years. Since then, he had appeared in 14 more games than any other player in baseball.

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

Two big news items on the Mariners. First, Robinson Cano goes on the DL with sore quad. Eligible to return next Tuesday. Those in weekly leagues should leave him active. In daily, you can do better than Taylor Motter, Seattle's fill-in. Second, Edwin Diaz will not close games for a bit after the Monday walk-fest. Don't assume it's Tony Zych closing. Could be Steve Cishek. And Diaz could resume closing soon. Don't cut him yet. Still great potential.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Mariners DH Nelson Cruz has 25 RBIs in his last 20 games, dating back to April 22. Per the Elias Sports Bureau, the last Seattle player with at least 25 RBIs over 20 games was also Cruz, in April/May 2015 (25 RBIs).

ESPN Stats and Information  

Yosmany Tomas' three-run home run against the Mets on Monday was not only his seventh home run this season, but it was also the second-longest of his career.

ESPN Stats and Information  

If there's one thing Cruz is good at, it's hitting homers -- and far. He slammed a 431-footer Monday vs. the A's at home. With that, he now leads the league with 19 425-foot home runs over the last two seasons.
