Mariners Losers from May
Diego Castillo – 15.63 ERA, 2.53 WHIP, 6.1 IP, 12 H, 4 BB, 8 K, .375 BAA
Castillo had an awful start to the month. In three appearances, he would go 0.1, 0.0, and 0.2 innings while giving up 1,5, and 3 runs respectively. It brought his ERA on the season from 1.86 all the way to 9.28. It’s really been the only rough stretch for him, but it was an AWFUL stretch.
Since then, he has been better with a 3.38 ERA in six appearances, giving up two runs, two hits, two walks, and striking out 7 in 5.1 innings. Let’s hope it was just a blip, and we get back to seeing the good Deigo Castillo.
Luis Torrens/Cal Raleigh – combined .181/.257/.287, 1 2B, 3 HR, 10 RBI, 10 R
Torrens is the big culprit here, with all his hits coming as singles, and just 2 RBI on the entire month. At least Raleigh is hitting dingers, with three on the month. He also has just three singles, so that’s not good. The Mariners aren’t going to succeed with either a singles hitter hitting in the 190s, or a catcher with occasional power hitting in the 140s.
Dylan Moore – .128/.261/.256, 0 2B, 1 HR, 5 RBI, 6 R
At least he has three SB? Moore was finally given some more regular playing time and has been playing as he always has in the past. Speed and some pop, but he just can’t hit often enough to matter. He does play good defense, but even an average of .210 would make him playable and good.
Scott Servais – 10 wins and 18 losses
When it’s June 1st and rumors are going around about your job security, it’s a loss. Doesn’t matter if we think you’re good or not, it’s just not a good thing to have floating around.
What do you think? Any other winners and losers? Let us know and as always… Go Mariners!
