Harvey, a former All-Star who helped the Mets reach the World Series in 2015, was designated for assignment last week after registering a 7.00 ERA in eight appearances this season. He was moved to the bullpen after surrendering six runs in an April 19 start against the Braves.“This was a long time coming,” Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said about the move at a press conference last week. “This is something we’ve tried to address, we’ve struggled with, we’ve wrestled with over two managerial regimes.”
Multiple teams have shown interest in Harvey, including the Rangers, according to a report by the MLB Network. Texas assistant pitching coach Dan Warthen was with New York from 2008-17.
The Mariners broke a three-game skid behind a decent outing from Felix Hernandez, who allowed two runs, both earned, on four hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings. Hernandez faced a potential hard-luck loss before Mitch Haniger tied the game at 2 with a solo homer in the eighth.
Haniger redeemed himself after running into an out in the second inning, when he led off with a double but was picked off trying to steal third.
Whether making self-inflicted outs or just falling to hit-robbing defense, the Mariners kept misfiring in Friday’s first eight innings. The troubles began when Nelson Cruz hit a would-be RBI double into the glove of an almost completely horizontal center fielder Drew Robinson, diving to his left for the second out in the first inning.
The Rangers also turned a double play to end the third, and first baseman Ronald Guzman made a nifty diving stop and threw to pitcher Mike Minor to end the fourth.Seattle was unable to capitalize on six hits and a walk off Minor, who also lasted 5 1/3 innings. The Mariners had at least a runner on second and less than two out in five of the six innings Minor started.”We certainly had a lot of chances earlier in the ballgame,” Servais said. “Our situational hitting and some of the other stuff, our execution wasn’t really good early.”The Rangers had a chance to retake the lead in the eighth, just after Haniger’s homer knotted the score, but Cano made two nice plays to preserve the tie. Against reliever Juan Nicasio, Jurickson Profar led off the inning with a single but was forced out on Nomar Mazara’s grounder to Cano. The Gold Glove second baseman then ended the inning with a gorgeous diving stop to his left and a quick throw from his heels to Segura, who relayed to first for the out.
“Robby brought the leather tonight,” Servais said. “He made a couple plays — as Robby does, he always makes it look easy and those plays aren’t easy.”
That put runners on second and third, and Jean Segura tied the game with a double to left. Cano followed with a high fly ball down the right-field line for a two-run home run and that was it for Claudio. Cano had one single in 12 previous career at-bats against Claudio before the home run.One of those situations as a manager where you look at Bush is good, Claudio is still good,” Banister said in explaining the pitching change. “And you play a little bit of the matchup situation there. Maybe put that one on me tonight. I went ahead and made that move and put our guy in there who has been good against that set of hitters. Maybe it’s the fact that those guys have seen him and seen him recently.”Claudio now has an 8.10 ERA after 12 appearances and opponents are hitting .395 off him. He had a 2.50 ERA and opponents hit .235 off him last season when he was the Rangers’ Pitcher of the Year.
He made some good pitches,” Chirinos said. “He got a ground ball on the first guy. Dee Gordon kind of threw his bat out there. After that, he missed a slider to Segura and then the Cano home run. He has been working to get those pitches down and tonight they were up.”Martin took over, but he gave up a two-out home run to Haniger to give the Mariners a 9-6 lead.
MLB wants to continue experimenting through additional means of delivering baseball broadcasts to a large and diverse audience,” the Rangers said in a release. “As well as utilizing new creative broadcast production elements to learn how fans want to consume and interact with games on a social platform.”The Giants-Phillies game today (Thursday, May 10) aired on Facebook. At least 25 games will be shown exclusively on Facebook in 2018. Other games schedule for digital-only availability include the Angels-Blue Jays on May 24 and the Cardinals-Brewers on May 30.Moore gave up three runs over three innings in his shortest start of the season. He faced 18 batters and allowed nine to reach base on six hits and three walks. Moore, who struck out five, also threw 72 pitches, which comes out to an unsustainable 24 per inning.
Moore still felt he had the best stuff he’s had in a game since his only win of the season against the Rays on April 17.
“The stuff coming out today felt like the swing-and-miss stuff,” Moore said. “The fastballs were getting swung through, the changeups — I had thrown four or five breaking balls, not many — but that type of stuff was encouraging. I felt like I had good stuff heading into [the game].”Chavez took over in the fourth and delivered three scoreless innings while striking out four. The only baserunner reached on an error by third baseman Adrian Beltre. After a rough start to the season, Chavez has a 3.19 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP over his last nine relief appearances.”I thought Chavez threw the ball extremely well,” Banister said. “It was a very competitive outing, one we have seen from him in the past. It was a good positive day for him.The Rangers signed Chavez with the possibility he could be used as either a starter or reliever. He threw 40 pitches on Sunday, so he is not that far removed from being stretched out as a starter if the Rangers are inclined to make a switch.”We’ll continue to evaluate that,” Banister said. “I’m not in a position to make a decision at this time.”
Moore started the day with two scoreless innings, although he had to strand two runners in each frame. He ran into trouble in the third because he started falling behind in counts.Alex Bregman began the inning with a walk, and then Carlos Correa worked the count full and was able to get Bregman to third on a hit-and-run groundout to Beltre. Bregman scored on a single by Yuli Gurriel. Marwin Gonzalez was also able to work the count full and move Gurriel to second on a hit-and-run grounder to Beltre.Evan Gattis followed with a high fly ball to left that landed in the seats for a two-run home run.
The first couple of innings were really good,” Banister said. “In the third inning, he started working from behind, missing out over the plate, deep counts. Lost a little bit of the delivery. The execution wasn’t where it needed to be in the third inning.”Same situation with Willie Calhoun and his outfield defense. The Rangers have some things they want Bush to work on, and they are going to give him the time to do so. Remember, Bush came up two years ago with relatively little Minor League experience, and he did well on the force of his sheer talent. It is time now for some refinements, because Texas still expects Bush to be an impact late-inning reliever again.
