Roenis Elias has now made six starts in place of Hisashi Iwakuma, but he is doing more than just filling in. Elias has become one of the cornerstones of Seattle's improved pitching staff, and he recorded his fifth straight quality start in Seattle's 4-1 win over Tampa Bay on Monday.
5/26/2015 | Cano showing signs of breakthrough

Mark Lowe, a 10-year Major League veteran, had spent most of the previous two seasons in the Minors with the Angels and Indians and seemingly was destined for more of the same with the Mariners.

5/24/2015 | Cano working hard, staying positive through slump
Every hitter in Major League Baseball struggles at times, but Robinson Cano isn't like most hitters, so it's surprising to see Seattle's six-time All-Star second baseman dealing with an extended slump that has him batting .247 after Sunday's 8-2 loss to the Blue Jays.
5/24/2015 | Miller embracing transition to super-utility role

The Mariners have had their "Boomstick" in right field much of the season with new slugger Nelson Cruz.

5/23/2015 | Young righties Walker, Sanchez set to clash in finale
A pair of young right-handers will go head to head in the Blue Jays-Mariners series finale at Rogers Centre on Sunday. Aaron Sanchez, 22, will look to build off a career-high 7 1/3 innings he threw for the Blue Jays his last time out, while the Mariners' Taijuan Walker continues to seek consistency in what has been a rough season so far for the 22-year-old.
5/23/2015 | McClendon concerned with Rodney's save rate, not ERA
Mariners closer Fernando Rodney had allowed runs in five of his seven May appearances, but the veteran right-hander has recorded 10 straight saves since his one blown opportunity in early April, and manager Lloyd McClendon said that means Rodney is getting his job done and did so again with a clean ninth in Seattle's 3-2 win over the Blue Jays.
5/22/2015 | Cruz continues torrid power streak in opener
The Mariners got another homer from Nelson Cruz on Friday and this time enough offense to go along with it to add up to a series-opening win as Seattle topped the Blue Jays, 4-3, at Rogers Centre.
5/22/2015 | King Felix returns to form against Toronto
When last seen at Rogers Centre, Felix Hernandez was getting hit hard in a 10-2 loss to the Blue Jays last September in a game that might have cost him his second American League Cy Young Award and a series that ultimately cost Seattle a shot at an AL Wild Card berth. But the King was back on his familiar perch on Friday.
5/22/2015 | Saunders catches up with old teammates

5/22/2015 | Rotation to stay in order after Happ's start
Even though J.A. Happ threw only two innings and 49 pitches in Seattle's rain-delayed 5-4 loss to the Orioles on Thursday in Baltimore, manager Lloyd McClendon said he'll keep the veteran lefty on his normal four days of rest before his next outing on Tuesday at Tampa Bay.

5/20/2015 | Early run support boosts Elias' confidence
Roenis Elias has pitched well all season, but that still has not translated into wins because the Mariners have struggled to get him runs. This time, Seattle got some early offense, and Elias did the rest, holding Baltimore scoreless into the eighth inning en route to a 4-1 victory.
5/20/2015 | Tillman, Happ set to face off in rubber match
Chris Tillman will make his first start since May 12 on Thursday after dealing with a slight strain in his lower back that caused him to miss his last start. The Mariners will counter with veteran left-hander J.A. Happ.
5/20/2015 | Castillo ready for new start with Mariners
