In Mariners News...
- Yesterday’s mollywhopping by the Astros was the result of a series of issues, starting with Yusei Kikuchi’s start-scratching neck spasms. Kikuchi may be able to start again soon, but it’s unclear if he’ll slide in the rotation soon or wait until his next scheduled turn.
- Nestor Cortes got the start, pitching quite poorly, and later reporting some tricep soreness.
