Mitch Haniger posted a pair of singles with an RBI across four at-bats in Sunday's 4-3 loss in Colorado.

Haniger, who is heading to his first All-Star Game with teammates Nelson Cruz, Edwin Diaz and Jean Segura, wrapped up the first half slashing .272/.358/.488 with 37 extra-base hits, including 18 homers, and 67 RBI. His RBI rank eighth in the majors, and third in the American League. His numbers are especially impressive considering Safeco Field, his home park, ranks 27th in the majors in runs according to MLB Park Factors.

Dee Gordon finished 2-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI in Sunday's 4-3 loss in Colorado.

Gordon is slashing .283/.283/.348 in the first half while posting 18 extra-base hits, 44 runs scored and 22 RBI with 22 steals on 28 attempts. Fantasy owners might be a little concerned with his lack of steals lately, going 11 straight games without a theft. Perhaps his hip and back is still bothering him a little bit. He'll use the All-Star break to rest up. Despite some lower-body ailments he still leads the American League with 22 stolen bases heading into the second half, one ahead of Chicago White Sox SS Tim Anderson.

Mike Leake allowed two runs - one earned - and six hits with two walks and four strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Sunday in Colorado.

Leake did a good job in a difficult place, throwing 53 of his 77 pitches for strikes. It wasn't a great outing, but he posted a quality start and gave his team a chance to pick up an important road victory. He finished the first half with a respectable 8-6 record, 4.22 ERA and 1.33 WHIP across 121 2/3 innings with 75 strikeouts over 20 starts. He has served as a decent back-end option for most fantasy owners this season.

Chris Herrmann went 1-for-2 with an RBI double and a walk in Saturday's loss to the Rockies.

Herrmann provided the Mariners their only run of the game in the 4-1 loss, hitting an RBI double off Jon Gray in the eighth inning. The two-bagger was just his second of the season. While the veteran backstop does have three extra-base hits in his last three games played, he's seen just 32 at-bats this year and can be ignored for fantasy purposes.
Jul 15 - 12:17 AM

Mitch Haniger went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Saturday's loss to the Rockies.

Nothing doing for Haniger or the rest of the M's offense in this one, as they managed only one run in the defeat. On the whole this season, the 27-year-old outfielder is slashing a sturdy .269/.357/.488 with 18 home runs and 66 RBI across 93 games played. While his bat has cooled in the month of July, he'll still be heading to Washington D.C. for All-Star Game festivities once the M's wrap up this weekend set against the Rockies.
Jul 15 - 12:13 AM

Wade LeBlanc surrendered four runs on six hits over 4 1/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Rockies.

LeBlanc struck out three and walked two on the evening. The Rockies pounced on him for a pair of two-spots in the dismal affair, with Carlos Gonzalez burning him for a two-run home run in the second inning and two more runs scoring on his line after he trotted back out to start the fifth inning. While this was not the shiniest of outings, LeBlanc has pitched quite well on the whole and will enter the All-Star break holding a 3.63 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 66/18 K/BB ratio across 89 1/3 frames.
Jul 15 - 12:07 AM

Mariners optioned RHP Christian Bergman to Triple-A Tacoma.

Bergman allowed five runs over 4 1/3 innings in a spot start loss to the Rockies Friday, so there isn't much to see here. Bergman will likely be back with the big club some time in the second half, though it's unclear when his services might next be needed.
Jul 14 - 4:31 PM

Mariners recall RHP Matt Festa from Double-A Arkansas.

The Mariners' No. 9 prospect per MLB Pipeline, Festa has a 3.13 ERA with 44 strikeouts in 31 2/3 innings at Double-A. He served as Arkansas' closer but will likely pitch in middle relief for the M's. It will be his major league debut when he gets into a game.
Jul 14 - 4:29 PM

Mike Zunino (ankle) was able to do some hitting in the batting cages on Friday.

He has also begun running and remains on track to return to the Mariners right after the All-Star break. Chris Herrmann and David Freitas will continue to handle the duties behind the plate until then.

Christian Bergman gave up five runs over 4 1/3 innings to lose to the Rockies on Friday.

Bergman was surely happy to get called up for a chance to make his second big-league start of the season tonight, but he must have cringed a little after figuring out it'd come at Coors; the former Rockies swingman entered with a 6.69 ERA in seven starts and 23 relief appearances in Denver. He'll likely head back to the minors in exchange for a fresh arm tomorrow.
Jul 14 - 12:18 AM

Ryon Healy went 0-for-4 in the loss at Coors Field on Friday, dropping his average to .238.

Since Healy has 18 homers, the Mariners probably won't look to upgrade at first base before the end of the month. It would be an easy place for them to get better, though. Healy's plate discipline is awful, leaving him with a .267 OBP, and he's not any good defensively. While he impressed as a rookie for the A's in 2016, he's been a bad regular ever since.
Jul 14 - 12:13 AM

Mariners purchased the contract of RHP Mike Morin from Triple-A Tacoma.

Morin has been outrighted off the Mariners' 40-man roster twice since March but has found his way back on a couple times. He's allowed one run over two relief appearances in the majors this season.
Jul 13 - 3:15 PM

Mariners recalled RHP Christian Bergman from Triple-A Tacoma.

Bergman will start Friday in Colorado in place of Felix Hernandez (back). He is a poor streaming option.
Jul 13 - 3:13 PM

Mariners recalled RHP Casey Lawrence from Triple-A Tacoma.

Lawrence will give the bullpen some length after they had to pitch virtually all of Thursday's game. He holds a 10.13 ERA over four relief appearances with the big club this season.
Jul 13 - 3:12 PM

Mariners optioned INF Gordon Beckham to Triple-A Tacoma.

Beckham has hit just .200/.263/.229 in 13 games for Seattle this season. The Mariners are in need of some fresh relief arms.
