Here’s how the Mariners’ farm system performed Tuesday:

Tacoma Rainiers (AAA)– Pacific Coast League

No. 7 Jake Fraley, OF (24)
TUE: 0-5, SO
2019: .295/.364/.534, 19-2B, 5-3B, 16 HR, 68 RBI, 31 BB, 78 SO, 20 SB

Hearing Fraley’s ‘call-up’ status is not about service time right now, but that could become a consideration if he shows he’s ready and a short period of time makes a difference.


No. 12 Shed Long, 2B/3B/OF (23)
TUE: DNP (IL)
2019: .279/.343/.466, 7-2B, 4-3B, 8 HR, 35 RBI, 20 BB, 59 SO


No. 14 Braden Bishop, CF (25)
TUE: Recalled 6.2.2019 (IL)
2019: .293/.378/.500, 13-2B, 7 HR, 29 RBI, 21 BB, 38 SO, 2 SB


No. 27 Erik Swanson, RHS (25)
TUE: Recalled 7.16.2019
2019: 10 G, 6 GS, 24.1 IP, 28 H, 15 ER, 12 BB, 28 SO


No. 35 David McKay, RHR (24)
TUE: DNP
2019: 26 G, 40.1 IP, 24 H, 28 BB, 66 SO


No. 36 Tim Lopes, 2B (24)
TUE: Called Up 7.23.2019
2019: .302/.362/.480, 30-2B, 2-3B, 10 HR, 60 RBI, 35 BB, 68 SO, 24 SB


Arkansas Travelers (AA) — Texas League

No. 2 Logan Gilbert, RHS (22)
TUE: DNP
2019: 95.1 IP, 68 H, 23 ER, 22 BB, 121 SO, 2.16 ERA

7.22.2019: Gilbert was fine until the sixth inning when he hit the leadoff batter, walked another with one out and allowed a two-run single, a second single and a two-run double before being removed.

Overall, the right-hander’s control was spotty at best, hitting two batters and walking two more. He induced only six swings and misses and threw under 60 percent of his pitches for strikes (53 of 90).

It wasn’t a terrible outing by any stretch, but these are the kinds of scenarios that weren’t hitting Gilbert in either of his first two stops. He needs to go through these.


No. 3 Justin Dunn, RHS (23)
TUE: DNP
2019: 88.1 IP, 82 H, 34 ER, 26 BB, 108 SO


No. 5 Justus Sheffield, LHS (23)
TUE: DNP
2019: 101.1 IP, 97 H, 52 BB, 96 SO


No. 9 Kyle Lewis, OF (24)
TUE: DNP
2019: .261/.358/.399, 20-2B, 2-3B, 7 HR, 49 RBI, 50 BB, 109 SO, 3 SB


No. 10 Cal Raleigh, C (22)
TUE: DNP
2019: .255/.333/.511, 19-2B, 22 HR, 69 RBI, 37 BB, 78 SO


No. 11 Evan White, 1B (23)
TUE: DNP
2019: .292/.341/.477, 12-2B, 2-3B, 11 HR, 35 RBI, 19 BB, 63 SO, SB

White is under the weather, not hurt. Just FYI.


No. 17 Ricardo Sanchez, LHS (22)
TUE: DNP
2019: 104.2 IP, 113 H, 42 ER, 25 BB, 105 SO, 3.61 ERA

TUE: DNP
2019: .295/.391/.419, 10-2B, 3B, 10 HR, 47 BB, 53 SO, 8 SB


Modesto Nuts (A+) — California League (All-Star Break)

No. 1 Jarred Kelenic, OF (20)
TUE: 0-3, BB, SO
2019: .285/.368/.530, 21-2B, 4-3B, 15 HR, 43 RBI, 38 BB, 78 SO, 13 SB


No. 40 Raymond Kerr, LHP (24)
TUE: DNP
2019: 24 G, 10 GS, 73.2 IP, 70 H, 37 BB, 64 SO

Kerr is due a promotion. He’s been nasty in relief, having not allowed an earned run in his last 16 innings. Dominant.


West Virginia Power (A) — South Atlantic League (All-Star Break)

No. 4 — Julio Rodriguez, OF (18)
TUE: 1-4, 2B, SO
2019: .287/.361/.464, 14-2B, 6 HR, 31 RBI, 13 BB, 50 SO

UR Josias De Los Santos, RHP (19)
TUE: DNP
2019: 15 G, 10 GS, 63 IP, 67 H, 25 BB, 49 SO


Everett SquaSox (SS-A) — Northwest League

No. 6 George Kirby, RHS (21)
TUE: 3 IP, 3 H, – R, 0 BB, SO
2019: 3 GS, 7 IP, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 SO

7.23.2019: I caught Kirby’s third start in Vancouver and while his command wasn’t quite as sharp, he continued to demonstrate the plus control and consistent delivery that makes me believe in his future as much as any starter in the system.

7.19.2019: I was in attendance for Kirby’s second pro start in Paaco and from his pre-game bullpen through his 21 pitches (13 strikes) in the game and the postgame bully, it was easy to see some things not as noticeable in his time at Elon via video.

He pitches primarily from the first-base side of the slab and creates deception with the arm slot and by keeping his front shoulder closed until the arm is ready to explode through release. He got some gloveside run on the fastball away to RHBs in this game and hit the edges for called strikes a few times.

He didn’t throw a lot of offspeed stuff, but didn’t have to, either.

The heater hit 96 mph and sat 92-94. His delivery was clean and consistent. Kirby has a terrific foundation of command mechanics, present velocity and feel that suggest a high probability starter with perhaos No. 2 upside.

2019: 4.1 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 6 SO


No. 19 Damon Casetta-Stubbs, RHS (19)

No. 25 Carter Bins, RHS (20)
TUE: 0-4

No. 29 Brayan Perez, LHS (18)
TUE: 3.2 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 4 SO
2019: 36.1 IP, 35 H, 14 ER, 9 BB, 33 SO


No. 31 Jorge Benitez, LHS (20)
TUE: DNP
2019: 28.2 IP, 27 H, 11 ER, 19 BB, 31 SO

No. 23 Juan Querecuto, SS (18)
TUE: DNP
2019: 1-12, 4 BB, 5 SO

No. 37 Tyler Driver, RHP (18)
TUE: DNP
2019: 27 IP, 23 H, 10 ER, 6 BB, 22 SO

Driver’s been very consistent this summer throwing strikes, missing some bats and getting his share of ground ball outs.
