  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Likely to join lineup Saturday

    Mariners manager Scott Servais said that he expects Rodriguez (hand) to play in Saturday's Cactus League game against the Athletics, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    According to Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM, Rodriguez will take some swings in the batting cage and possibly on the back fields of camp Wednesday as he continues to ramp back up following a bout with left hand inflammation. Rodriguez was also able to play catch in the outfield Tuesday, so wearing a glove on the injured hand apparently isn't too bothersome for the 23-year-old.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Continues improving Tuesday

    Rodriguez (hand) played catch in the outfield with Ichiro Suzuki on Tuesday and is feeling "much, much better" according to manager Scott Servais, MLB.com reports.

    Rodriguez also did some batting cage work and echoed his manager's sentiments, saying in passing that he was feeling "all good" from the minor inflammation on the back of his left hand. Servais added that he felt Rodriguez, who engaged in intense training this offseason, was still on target for a potential Cactus League debut by the weekend, adding he had trust in the team's medical staff to give the green light to the star outfielder at the appropriate time.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Taking flips in batting cage

    Rodriguez (hand) will take flips in the batting cage Tuesday, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.

    Rodriguez is considered day-to-day while dealing with some inflammation in the top of his left hand. The hope is that he will be ready to return to game action before the end of this week, but the Mariners won't push him this early in spring training.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Day-to-day with hand inflammation

    Manager Scott Servais said Monday that Rodriguez is battling some inflammation in the top of the left hand, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.

    The Mariners believe the star outfielder just overdid it with too many swings in the batting cage. Rodriguez had the hand checked out and was cleared of any serious injury. He's expected to rest for the next few days but should be ready to return to Cactus League play by this weekend.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Knocks 32nd homer

    Rodriguez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Rangers.

    Rodriguez snapped a three-game hitless skid with his fourth-inning blast, one game after a four-strikeout performance. The outfielder is batting a modest .250 over 26 games in September, but he's swatted eight of his 32 homers on the year during that span. Rodriguez is at a .280/.339/.493 slash line with 103 RBI, 102 runs scored, 37 stolen bases, 37 doubles and two triples through 152 contests overall.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: On base three times Sunday

    Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and two runs in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.

    Rodriguez played the role of table setter in the narrow loss, coming home on both Jarred Kelenic's fielder's choice in the sixth and Teoscar Hernandez's RBI single in the seventh. Rodriguez's multi-hit effort was his first since Sept. 15 but eighth overall this month, and his two trips across the plate Sunday pushed his season run total to an even 100.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Shakes off pitch to elbow

    Rodriguez was hit by a 91.3-mph slider around the elbow area in the sixth inning of Friday night's loss to the Rangers, but he remained in the game after being evaluated, the Associated Press reports.

    Rodriguez took the plunking from Rangers starter Dane Dunning and was in clear discomfort immediately thereafter. He was evaluated by both manager Scott Servais and team trainers and was determined to be OK, but the star outfielder's bumps and bruises are piling up at an inopportune time of year -- in addition to Friday's hit-by-pitch, Rodriguez also took a ball off his left hand during an at-bat Wednesday against the Athletics and underwent precautionary X-rays.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Sent for X-rays on hand

    Rodriguez is undergoing precautionary X-rays after taking a pitch off his left hand in Wednesday's win at Oakland, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Rodriguez was struck by a Joey Estes fastball in the top of the third inning, but he was able to finish out the game in center field and even connected for his 31st home run of the year in the top of the fifth -- a blast that made him the third player in Mariners history to put together a 100-RBI season by the age of 22. As yet there doesn't appear to be much concern Rodriguez will miss any time.
