The Mariners look to gain some ground in the playoff race
Yesterday’s series opener against the Diamondbacks started out really well, but began to go South before finally ending with a Mariners win. Today’s game sees them facing the young Humberto Castellanos, who has found success in his first two starts of the season. Hopefully the Mariners will be able to use what film they have on him to do a bit more damage.
Mitch Haniger and Ty France will be the only Mariners hitting from the right side of the dish in the Mariners’ lefty-heavy lineup. Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks will have just one lefty facing the left-handed Marco Gonzales.
Fortunately, the Mariners will be receiving some bullpen reinforcements after yesterday’s extra inning affair. Both Diego Castillo and Anthony Misiewicz have been activated off of the Injured List. Wyatt Mills and Kevin Padlo have both been optioned to Tacoma to make room for the bullpen arms.
