The Seattle Mariners can’t seem to get their struggling

Berichtdoor panxing18 » 17 apr 2019, 02:23

SEATTLE (AP) —bats back in a groove and end their freefall in the AL playoff picture.Toronto’s Marco Estrada became the latest to leave Seattle’s batters baffled http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-pat-neshek-jersey , using his mix of offspeed pitches to take a no-hitter into the seventh inning of the Blue Jays‘ 5-1 win over the Mariners on Saturday night.Estrada (5-8) was masterful with his changeup, keeping the Mariners guessing all night. He didn’t give up a hit until Mitch Haniger’s one-out double just inside third base in the seventh inning. It was just Seattle’s second baserunner after Nelson Cruz walked leading off the second inning.Estrada was pulled after walking Ryon Healy to open the eighth inning, leaving to a standing ovation from the thousands of Toronto fans in attendance. Estrada struck out four and allowed one earned run when Healy scored on Chris Herrmann’s sacrifice fly.“The fans made it seem like a playoff game,” Estrada said. “It gave me a lot of energy and a lot of excitement and got the adrenaline going. When I walked off and got a great ovation, it was awesome.”Seattle has lost five straight and fallen 2 ½ games back of Oakland for the second AL wild card. The Mariners’ slumping offense looked even more meager against Estrada, who entered the day with a 4.90 ERA and had allowed four earned runs in four innings in his last start. Estrada also induced plenty of weak contact as Seattle struggled to make the adjustment between speeds.Ryan Tepera finished off the eighth and Ken Giles pitched the ninth in his second appearance since being acquired by the Blue Jays.“You’ve got to try to simplify things a little bit. That’s what we’ve got to get to. Instead of making it harder, make it a little simpler because what we’re doing right now is not working,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said.Seattle starter James Paxton (9-5) lost for the third time in his past four starts against the team he no-hit earlier this season in Toronto. The damage against Paxton came via two blows: Devon Travis’ two-run single in the third and Aledmys Diaz’s solo home run leading off the fifth.Travis has seven RBIs in the first three games of the series; he had seven RBIs the entire month of July.“If you’re not aggressive against (Paxton) it’s even tougher. We stayed aggressive tonight,” Travis said.Paxton was able to get through the seventh thanks to inning-ending double plays in the first, third and fifth innings Mitch Williams Jersey , and another key double play in the seventh. He struck out seven and has allowed three earned runs or fewer in 14 of his last 17 starts.Paxton was unhappy with his curveball and it allowed the Blue Jays to look for mostly fastballs.“They knew I didn’t have my good breaking stuff tonight,” Paxton said. “Nothing was very sharp. The ball was kind of rolling into the zone. I think that allows them not to have to respect that pitch as much and they can cheat on the fastball.”BULLPEN BANTERToronto added two more runs off Seattle’s bullpen on Justin Smoak’s RBI single off Sam Tuivailala in the eighth and Brandon Drury’s double off James Pazos in the ninth. Toronto has scored 10 runs — seven earned — off Seattle’s bullpen in the first three games of the series.TRAINER’S ROOMMariners: 2B Dee Gordon was a late scratch from the lineup Saturday because of a sore ankle. Manager Scott Servais expects Gordon to play Sunday. … RHP Erasmo Ramirez will make one more rehab start Sunday for Triple-A Tacoma. Servais expects Ramirez to return to the active roster if all goes well. … Servais doesn’t know how long RHP Juan Nicasio, who was placed on the 10-day DL Friday, could be on the DL because of his knee situation. “Juan’s frustrated that it hasn’t felt good. He wants to make it right. I certainly think he can come back and impact this year down the stretch, but I don’t know.”UP NEXTBlue Jays: RHP Sam Gaviglio (2-4, 5.10) is expected to make his 15th start of the season Sunday afternoon. Gaviglio has lost four of his last five starts while allowing 19 earned runs over 20.1 innings for an 8.51 ERA over that span.Mariners: RHP Mike Leake (8-7, 4.16) is scheduled to make his 23rd start of the season Sunday afternoon. Leake is on pace to make at least 30 starts for the seventh consecutive season. He is one of only four pitchers who made at least 30 starts every season from 2012-17. Once upon a time, Hanley Ramirez was one of MLB's biggest superstars. It's safe to say those days are over.In May 2018, the Boston Red Sox designated Ramirez for assignment, which is a polite way of saying they opted to pay him approximately $15 million-plus to not play for them."I don't think he didn't fit in Dave Cash Jersey , but I think his role was going to diminish and for how good of a player he is, it was going to be difficult," manager Alex Cora said at the time, per MLB.com's Ian Browne.It doesn't take a Rhodes scholar to read between the lines.In 44 games in 2018, Ramirez slashed .254/.313/.395. It was a low moment for the three-time All-Star and three-time top-10 MVP Award finisher.Now, after celebrating his 35th birthday in December and watching the Sox hoist a Commissioner's Trophy without him, Ramirez is angling for a comeback in the Dominican winter league.In 18 games with the Tigres del Licey, he's hitting .266 with an .829 OPS. Here he is swatting a baseball with extreme prejudice:Mario Herrera MarioHHMarrrrrdito palo de Hanley Ramirez.TL - AC44#TLvsAC #LiceyCampeon bGkgpxyLUhYet, no offers have rolled in.Partly, that's due to the slowly developing free-agent market. With superstars such as Manny Machado and Bryce Harper unsigned http://www.philliesfanproshop.com/authentic-pat-neshek-jersey , it makes sense for Ramirez to wait in line. It's worth wondering, however, if a contract offer will ever come.Ramirez's hard-contact rate dipped from 35.3 percent in 2017 to 31.3 percent in 2018, per FanGraphs. Meanwhile, his weighted runs created plus (wRC+) fell to 89 from a career average of 125.All of that paints a picture of a former star in decline. He's in his mid-30s, which is not typically a time when renaissances occur.It wasn't that long agoovember 2014, to be exacthat the Red Sox gave Ramirez a four-year, $88 million deal. The notion was to move him to the outfield.That was, to put it bluntly, a bad notion.Kathy Willens/Associated PressAfter spending his career as an infielder Aaron Nola Jersey , Ramirez posted minus-19 defensive runs saved in left field in 2015 and ultimately moved to first base.As his offense continued to tumble and he became more of a defensive drag, Ramirez went from impactful to superfluous to an albatross. As Sports Illustrated's Jon Tayler put it in May 2018:"At 34 years old and with bad peripherals all over the place, it does feel like Ramirez has reached the end. Once a prolific slugger, Ramirez now struggles to catch up with fastballs, hitting just .257 with a .349 slugging percentage against them. ... Some of that may be the residue of a shoulder injury suffered last year that required offseason surgery, but whatever the reason, that kind of offense isn tenable for a first baseman on a championship contender."The Sox moved on. And, it seems, the other 29 MLB teams moved on as well. Ramirez didn't sign so much as a minor league pact after his release from Boston, and he still hasn't.It's possible an AL club in need of a DH will take a flier on him. A minor league deal with a spring training invite feels about right.That's a steep decline for a man who got MVP votes as recently as 2013.When the Red Sox cut Ramirez loose last season Juan Samuel Jersey , they denied him a $22 million vesting option based on plate appearances.Michael Dwyer/Associated Press"I've got my money already; it doesn't matter," he said, per Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe. "I just want to win."Fair enough. But now, the question isn't whether he wants to win or lose. Instead, it's whether he can secure a major league gig.Once upon a time, Hanley Ramirez was one of MLB's biggest superstars. Now, he's scraping desperately to stay in the league.That's a dizzying fall.All statistics and contract information courtesy of Baseball Reference and FanGraphs.
