The Orioles are 2-1 on their West Coast trip after losing 7-5 in Oakland on Sunday. The O’s remain without starting outfielder Anthony Santander due to an ankle injury. Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Sunday that Santander is on schedule with his rehab program and could soon resume baseball activities. Hyde previously mentioned late May as the target date for Santander’s return.
Shortstop Freddy Galvis missed a few games last week with a groin injury but was back Saturday. Interestingly on Saturday vs. Oakland, all nine position players had at least one it. It was just the second time in franchise history (since 1954) in which all position players who appeared in the game collected exactly one hit; also happened on July 11, 1990 vs. Kansas City when nine batters recorded one hit.
The Orioles outfield has combined for seven defensive runs saved, tied for the second-most in the majors. Individually, Austin Hays has accounted for 4 DRS in left field, the most in the majors, and Santander has accounted for 4 DRS in right, tied for the second-most in the majors.
It’s struggling Dean Kremer (0-2) on the mound. He was knocked around for six runs over 4 1/3 innings last Wednesday vs. the Yankees in his return to the Orioles’ rotation. Kremer’s velocity was up across the board against the Yanks, with a four-seamer that peaked just under 97 mph. The big blow came in the third inning in the form of a Gio Urshela three-run homer.
The 25-year-old Kremer hasn’t found much success this season with an 8.40 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 18:6 K:BB across 15 innings.
Kremer will be making his second-career start against the Mariners, and first at T-Mobile Park, with his last start coming on 4/13 at Oriole Park when he allowed four runs in 3.0 innings and did not factor in the decision. He is 0-1 in two starts on the road this season with a 4.70 ERA (4 ER/7.2 IP).
Why Bet on Seattle? | MLB Betting OddsThe Mariners won two of three over the weekend at home vs. the Angels, taking the finale 2-0 on Sunday. Mitch Haniger and Kyle Seager are 1 of 3 pairs of teammates with at least 20 RBI each, Haniger (21+ RBI) and Seager (20) join Boston’s J.D. Martinez (26) and Rafael Devers (21) and the Angels’ Jared Walsh (21) and Shohei Ohtani (20).
Reigning AL Rookie of the Year Kyle Lewis has 19 home runs through his first 86 career games. Lewis has a chance to become the fastest Mariners player to reach 20 career home runs in club history. Alvin Davis holds the current club record, blasting his 20th career home run in career game number 88.
Before Sunday’s game, the team put reliever Casey Sadler on the injured list with right shoulder inflammation. Sadler has been a key piece in the Seattle bullpen this season, posting a 1.64 ERA while gathering three holds across 11 innings. Erik Swanson was called up from the Mariners’ alternate training site in a corresponding move. No. 1 starting pitcher Marco Gonzales was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a mild left forearm strain.
Because of injury issues, it’s not 100 percent clear who will start this game. Gonzales has his problem, and Nick Margevicius has left shoulder inflammation and is scheduled to undergo further evaluation in the coming days, but he’s still at least a few weeks away. James Paxton underwent season-ending surgery two weeks ago.
It could be Justin Dunn (1-0, 3.98) here. Dunn allowed three runs on four hits and two walks with two strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision over the Astros last Wednesday. Dunn kept the Mariners in the ballgame by limiting the Astros lineup to just three runs into the sixth inning. After walking Kyle Tucker to lead off the second inning, two base hits would score two runs in the frame. With two outs in the sixth, Dunn allowed a single and a double that scored a run before his day was over. The 25-year-old right-hander tossed 51-of-84 pitches for strikes.
Right-hander Erik Swanson, a former starter turned reliever, was recalled from the team’s alternate training site Sunday and also could start Monday. Swanson pitched two scoreless innings April 13 in Baltimore in his only major-league appearance of the season. Mariners manager Scott Servais hinted it could be a bullpen day.
