MLB: Will you get on the boat? Mariners could promote GL to pitcher prospect

The young man pitcher Matt Brash was at home on Monday in the T-Mobile Park and appears to be in line to contribute in some way to the last five games of the Seattle Mariners, possibly starting this next Tuesday.

He’s likely to start in place of Japanese southpaw Yusei Kikuchi, whose second-half struggles have become so pronounced that his outings have become a drag on a club in the race for the American League wild card:

Mariners manager Scott Servais indicated that Seattle will evaluate its pitching options after Game 1 of the series, likely to gauge how many bullpen arms would be available.

But the fact that Brash is here is as clear a sign as any that the Mariners plan to use him, and since he’s been into a starter’s grind and workload, he’s likely to start rather than wear him as a piece. of bullpen.

Brash, Seattle’s No. 10 prospect, completed a pregame workout Monday in full Major League gear. He was promoted to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday to be eligible to join the team for his final stay at home, and would be eligible for a postseason roster if the Mariners advance.

The 23-year-old, 1.85-meter tall Brash last pitched a game on Sept. 16 for Double-A Arkansas, but has kept his arm active ever since. In 20 starts between Arkansas and High-A Everett, Brash has a 2.31 ERA and struck out 142 in 97 1/3 innings for a rate of 35.1 percent.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
