#91: No Excuse If Mariners Can't Hit This Week

Four games on the road against Kansas City’s hittable starting pitching should be salve for the feeble Mariners, who begin the week 17.5 games back of the Rangers in the AL West.

The Mariners are 88-115 all time at Kauffman Stadium, where Seattle begins four-game series with the Royals Monday night. / Wiki Commons

GAME: Mariners (37-53, 4th, AL West, – 17.5 GB) at Royals (38-49, 4th, AL Central, -10.5 GB). GAME #: 91. SERIES: 1st of 4 games. MEETING: 1st. WHEN: Monday, 5:10 p.m., Kauffman Stadium. PROBABLE PITCHERS: LHP Jason Vargas (Seattle, 8-7, 4.07) vs. LHP Jonathan Sanchez (Kansas City, 1-5, 6.75). STREAKS: Mariners L 1; Royals L 1. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.

The Mariners (37-53) couldn’t do much of anything Sunday with Texas lefty Matt Harrison, who blanked them on five hits, but Harrison is an All-Star in the midst of one of his better seasons (12-4). Seattle will have no excuses for not hitting this week when they play a four-game series at Kansas City.

The four Royals starters the Mariners are scheduled to face are a combined 15-24 this season with the following ERAs: 6.75 (Monday), 5.52 (Tuesday), 5.50 (Wednesday) and 5.15 (Thursday). Monday’s Kansas City starter, Jonathan Sanchez, hasn’t won since April 8 (four losses and five no-decisions).

Sanchez’s recent numbers have “designated for assignment” written all over them. In the four games before the All-Star break, he allowed 20 runs on 26 hits and 19 walks. Only the Mariners could starve when offered a banquet like this.

Jason Vargas (8-7, 4.07) will receive his first post-All-Star start for the Mariners, who enter the week 17.5 games behind first-place Texas in the AL West and 9.5 back of third-place Oakland. A closer look at Monday’s probables:

MARINERS: LHP Jason Vargas (8-7, 4.07 ERA, 1.15 WHIP)

The 29-year-old Vargas, in his seventh major league season and fifth with the Mariners, will make his 20th start and first against the Royals. Vargas finished up his first half with a complete-game gem in a 7-1 victory over Oakland, allowing seven hits and one run while picking up his first win in a month. Due to the way the Mariners set up their post All-Star break rotation, Vargas received an an extra four days of rest.

A native of Apple Valley, CA., the 6-0, 215-pound Vargas was selected in the second round of the 2004 amateur draft by the Florida Marlins.

He made his debut with Florida July 14, 2005, pitching one inning of relief in a 13-7 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Mariners acquired Vargas as part of a three-team swap Dec. 11, 2008, when the New York Mets sent him along with Mike Carp, Ezequiel Carrera, Endy Chavez, Maikel Cleto and Aaron Heilman to the Mariners. The Mariners sent Sean Green, J.J. Putz and Jeremy Reed to the Mets.

The Mariners also sent Luis Valbuena to the Indians. The Mets sent Joe Smith to the  Indians, who sent Franklin Gutierrez to the Mariners.

Vargas, the only lefty in Seattle’s starting rotation, has a career record of 36-46, 4.45 ERA, including 30-38, 4.17 ERA with the Mariners.

ROYALS: LHP Jonathan Sanchez (1-5, 6.75 ERA, 1.94 WHIP)

Jonathan Sanchez

The 29-year-old Sanchez, in his seventh major league season and first with the Royals, will make his 12th start and first against the Mariners. Sanchez closed out the first half July 6 with what has become a common outing for the lefty. He lasted 5 2/3 innings against Detroit, allowing four runs on six hits and a walk, taking the loss. He hasn’t won a game since April 8.

A native of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, the 6-0, 200-pound Sanchez attended Ohio Dominican University in Columbus. The San Francisco Giants selected him in the 27th round of the 2004 amateur draft.

Sanchez pitched in the Giants system until May 28, 2006, when he made his major league debut in a 6-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies. Sanchez worked one inning in relief and did not factor in the decision.

Sanchez split the 2006-07 seasons between the majors and minors before moving into the Giants rotation in 2008, when he went 9-12, 5.01. He had an 8-12 record in 2009 and produced his best major league season in 2010, going 13-9 with a 3.07 ERA.

Sanchez made only 19 starts in 2011 and finished with a 4-7, 4.26 record. Following the season, the Giants traded Sanchez with Ryan Verdugo to the Royals for Melky Cabrera.

  • 2012: Sanchez defeated the Los Angeles Angels 7-3 in his first start and hasn’t produced a victory since, recording five losses and six no-decisions. He has allowed at least four earned runs six times in 11 starts, three times giving up six earned runs.
  • LAST START: July 6 at Detroit, lost 4-2; allowed four earned runs on six hits in 5.2 innings; struck out two, walked three; one home run; threw 101 pitches, 60 for strikes.
  • LAST VS. MARINERS: June 17, 2006, pitching for San Francisco, worked one inning in relief and did not factor in the decision, an 8-1 Mariners win; Seattle lineup that day included Ichiro, RF; Adrian Beltre, 3B; Jose Lopez, 2B; Raul Ibanez, LF; Richie Sexson, 1B; Carl Everett, DH; Jeremy Reed, CF; Rene Rivera, C; Yuniesky Betancourt, SS; Gil Meche, SP.
  • CAREER VS. MARINERS: 0-0, 0.00 ERA in one game, a relief appearance, covering 1.0 innings; one walk, no strikeouts.
  • AT KAUFFMAN STADIUM: 0-1, 8.44 ERA in five games, all starts, covering 21.1 innings; 14 strikeouts to eight walks; 5.9 strikeouts per nine innings; four home runs.
  • LOVES/HATES TO FACE: Sanchez has limited exposure to members of Seattle’s roster. Brendan Ryan (2-for-3) and Miguel Olivo (2-for-7) have hits off Sanchez while Chone Figgins (0-for-4) and Ichiro (0-for-1) do not.
