Kyle Seager is not in the Mariners' starting lineup Tuesday night against the Athletics.

Kristopher Negron will play third base and bat sixth versus Oakland lefty Brett Anderson. Seager is batting just .219 with a .272 OBP in 150 games this season.

Dee Gordon went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in a loss to the Athletics on Monday.

Not only did Gordon homer for just the fourth time this year in 548 at-bats, he also drew a walk; which was just the ninth time he's been given a free pass this year. The homer is actually gives Gordon blasts in back-to-back games, but it unfortunately "ups" his slugging percentage to .349 and his OPS to .639. He was also thrown out stealing for the 12th time in 42 attempts. It's been a very disappointing season for the 30-year-old, and this type of skill set doesn't tend to age very well.

Robinson Cano went 1-for-4 with a homer in a loss to the Athletics on Monday.

Cano's homer is the 10th of the season, and it gave Seattle a 1-0 lead in the first inning. The 35-year-old has been scorching hot with the bat lately, and this broke a streak of five-straight games where the All-Star had picked up multiple hits. The year was dampened by his 80-game suspension for a masking agent, but his .303/.378/.481 line tells you that there's still plenty left in his left-handed bat.

James Paxton allowed two runs over four innings while striking out five in a no-decision against the Athletics on Monday.

Paxton was making his first start since September 7 because of his illnesses, so it wasn’t surprising that he was on a limited pitch count. The left-hander gave up two solo homers, but outside of that pitched effectively without walking any hitters. Paxton is never going to be the type of hurler that is among the league leaders in innings, but the 29-year-old misses plenty of bats -- 199 in 154 2/3 innings -- and when he has his best command, he's tough to score on. Paxton's scheduled to make one more start in 2018 on Saturday against the Rangers.

James Paxton (illness) is expected to be limited to around 70-75 pitches during Monday's start against the Athletics.

It will be Paxton's first start in two and a half weeks following a bout with pneumonia and the flu. Fantasy owners should still be rolling Paxton out there even with the limited pitch count and tough matchup.
Sep 24 - 5:26 PM

Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 on Sunday in a loss to the Rangers.

Cano is red-hot with the bat. This if five-straight multi-hit games for the All-Star infielder, and he's seen his batting average raise from .277 to .304 because of it. The soon to be 36-year-old obviously disappointed with his 80-game suspension, but when he's been on the field, there hasn't been a noticeable decline in performance at all. He'll again be one of the best second baseman to keep an eye on for the 2019 seasons in every format.
Sep 23 - 6:16 PM

Wade LeBlanc allowed three runs over five innings in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.

Things started out well for LeBlanc, as he shut down the Rangers over the first four innings. Things unraveled in the sixth, however, as he gave up three without giving up an out. Despite the loss, it’s still been a quality season for the crafty left-hander with a 3.55 ERA and 124/38 K/BB ratio over 157 innings. His final start of the year is scheduled for Friday against the Rangers.
Sep 23 - 6:08 PM

Mitch Haniger is not in the Mariners' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for Haniger. Kristopher Negron is in right field.
Sep 23 - 12:08 PM

James Paxton (illness) is listed as the Mariners' scheduled starter on Monday versus the Athletics.

Paxton has been throwing for the last several days after missing a couple weeks of action because of a combination of pneumonia and the flu. He doesn't figure to be ready for a full workload Monday but is in line to get two starts in the final week.
Sep 23 - 10:58 AM

Felix Hernandez (hamstring) said the current plan is for him to pitch Wednesday at Safeco Field.

Felix has been sidelined since September 8 with a low-grade hamstring strain, but apparently his bullpen session Friday went well enough that he's ready to return. The start will be his last of 2018, and he'll have one more year at $27 million left on his deal before he and the Mariners potentially have some tough emotional decisions to make about the future.
Sep 23 - 12:01 AM

Robinson Cano went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer and four RBI as the Mariners trounced the Rangers 13-0 on Saturday.

Cano has really perked up of late, going 11-for-20 with six extra-base hits in his last four games. He might be a little underrated on draft day next year after the steroid suspension and the home run dropoff (he currently has nine in 73 games). His overall performance hasn't declined at all.
Sep 22 - 11:37 PM

Marco Gonzales limited the Rangers to one hit over six innings Saturday in a 13-0 win.

Nothing against Gonzales, but Marco Polo probably would have done about as well in this one and he's been dead 800 years. Gonzalez picked up his first win in seven starts since July 29. He's 13-9 with a 4.12 ERA, and he'll have a pretty good chance at one more win when he faces the Rangers again in his 2018 finale.
Sep 22 - 11:34 PM

Mitch Haniger went 3-for-5 with two doubles and three runs scored against the Rangers on Saturday.

Leadoff isn't the ideal spot for Haniger in the Mariners lineup, but he sure is excelling there recently; he's batting .341 with eight homers in 39 games since Scott Servais made the move last month. It'd be a better fit if the Mariners had any OBP at all at the bottom of the order. The team busted out for 13 runs tonight, but Haniger still didn't have an RBI.
Sep 22 - 11:28 PM

Dee Gordon went 2-for-3 with a triple and a run scored in a loss to the Rangers on Friday.

He led off the fifth inning with a triple and then scored on a Mitch Haniger groundout for the Mariners' first run of the game. The 30-year-old has been splitting time between center field and shortstop lately but got to return to second base today as Robinson Cano played a game at first base. Gordon is slotting in at ninth in the batting order, which is an indication that his prowess at the plate this year has not been very impressive. He is slashing .269/.289/.338 with two homers, 30 RBI, 59 runs and 30 stolen bases. That .627 OPS is his lowest since he became a full-time starter in the major leagues. He's drawn only eight walks all year long, leading to the poor on-base percentage.
Sep 22 - 2:53 AM

Erasmo Ramirez handed out six runs in only 2 2/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Rangers on Friday.

Adrian Beltre was the primary culprit -- he cracked a three-run homer and drove in two more with a double. The sixth run scored when Ramirez walked Joey Gallo with the bases loaded. It was another bad game in a bad season for the veteran hurler, who falls to 2-4 with a 6.50 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 10 starts.
