The Mariners need a big bat. This ain’t it, but it ain’t nothing:
The Padres have announced that they acquired Stephen Kohlscheen and Abraham Almonte from Mariners in exchange.
Denofia s having a bad year, but the 34-year-old outfielder has been a reliable lefty-masher for several years. He won’t change the game in Seattle, but he will certainly help.
WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.
He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.
Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.
The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.
Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
