Mariners Weekly Rundown

Shawn O’Malley – UTL

After spending the entire season in Tacoma with the Rainiers, Shawn O’Malley was recalled from triple-A on September 1. O’Malley has made an immediate impact with the Mariners, recording 6 hits in his first 8 at bats. The 27-year-old super utility man has tallyied 1 double, 3 RBI, 1 stolen base and on Saturday he clubbed his first big league home run. He worked 4 free passes this week, and posted a ridiculous on base percentage of .833.

The Southridge, WA product hit .297 with 11 doubles, 5 home runs, 41 RBI and 20 stolen bases this season in the Pacific Coast League. O’Malley has experience playing all over the diamond, but he is expected to get some opportunities in center field this month. I am excited to see how he fares, as I am a big fan of his. I believe O’Malley would be best suited to be the Mariners’ super-utility man in 2016.
