Mariners Mid-Season Report Card

4 of 5

Mandatory Credit: Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Felix Hernandez, Grade: A

Taijuan Walker, Grade: B

J.A. Happ, Grade: A-

Roenis Elias, Grade: C

James Paxton, Grade: C

Michael Montgomery, Grade: B-

There they are listed in order of Innings Pitched.  Felix has been Felix.  Taijuan Walker has shown flashes of the brilliance that the scouts and commentators have been going on about but he’s also looked completely lost at times. Happ has been a nice surprise for the most part. Elias and Montgomery have been pretty solid fill-ins while we waited for Hisashi Iwakuma and Paxton to make their returns from the DL.

Overall Grade: B

Those are the starters.  How about the relievers?
