4 game series @ the Minnesota Twins: May 6-9

At the moment, the Minnesota Twins are one of the hottest teams in baseball. They are winners of 9 in a row and the longest streak in the MLB this season. The twins started off just like the Mariners but are now 16-13 and currently sit in 4th place in the AL Central, just three games back of the Cleveland Guardians.

3 game series vs Oakland Athletics: May 10-12

The Athletics have actually started the season off decently. They own a 14-17 record and are playing better baseball than they did all of last year. The Mariners should take care of business but this team could test the Mariners.

3 game series vs Kansas City Royals: May 13-15

The Royals are 18-13 and if the season ended today they would be in the playoffs. The Royals always seem to play the Mariners annoyingly well. They seem to put some of their best baseball together when they face the Mariners. Hopefully, for this series, it is the Mariners that do this to them.

3 game series @ the Baltimore Orioles: May 17-19

The Baltimore Orioles are one of the best teams in the AL and just keep pulling studs from their farm systems. They are led by Gunnar Henderson and Corbin Burnes. The Orioles sit atop the AL East with a 19-10 record. Last year the Mariners went 2-4 against the Orioles.
