The Mariners had the day off before the Twins roll into town Thursday when former Mariners right-hander Michael Pineda takes the mound versus Erik Swanson.

Here’s the day down on the farm:

Tacoma Rainiers (AAA)– Pacific Coast League

No. 1 Justus Sheffield, LHS
WED: DNP
2019: 32.1 IP, 26 H, 15 ER, 25 BB, 26 SO, 4.31 ERA


No. 8 Shed Long, 2B/3B/OF
WED: Called Up to MLB 5/10/2019
2019: .276/.350/.504, 5-2B, 4-3B, 5 HR, 21 RBI, 14 BB, 31 SO


No. 11 Braden Bishop, CF
WED: DNP
2019: .273/.354/.505, 8-2B, 5 HR, 12 BB, 25 SO

After being treated like an unwelcomed distant relative who hates fun during his time in the big leagues, Bishop is back in the lineup regularly in Tacoma and the results speak for themselves.


No. 22 David McKay, RHR
WED: DNP
2019: 13 G, 6.52 ERA, 19.1 IP, 17 H, 13 BB, 31 SO


No. 31 Matt Festa, RHR
WED: DNP
2019: 8 G, 6.30 ERA, 10 IP, 11 H, 4 BB, 13 SO


No. 35 Tim Lopes, 2B
WED: DNP
2019: .299/.356/.504, 7-2B, 3B, 5 HR, 22 RBI, 11 BB, 25 SO, 6 SB


No. 39 Connor Kopach, 2B
WED: DNP
2019: .267/.343/.408, 6-2B, 3B, 3 HR, 11 BB, 31 SO, 10 SB


No. 40 Nick Rumbelow, RHR
WED: DNP
2019: 12 G, 9.19 ERA, 14.2 IP, 24 H, 10 BB, 11 SO


MLB Mallex Smith, CF — DNP

MLB Kyle Seager, 3B — DNP


Arkansas Travelers (AA) — Texas League

No. 3 Justin Dunn, RHS
WED: 6 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 7 SO
2019: 33.1 IP, 30 H, 13 ER, 9 BB, 45 SO, 3.51 ERA

Dunn was very good Wednesday, throwing everything for strikes and gettings at least one swing-and-miss from each pitch.

He pounded the zone — even started batters off with changeups for strikes — and threw 64 of 92 pitches for strikes, a 66% clip.


No. 6 Kyle Lewis, OF
WED: 1-5, 2B, 2 SO
2019: .234/.349/.379, 7-2B, 3B, 3 HR, 19 RBI, 21 BB, 43 SO, 2 SB

Lewis is walking at a 15% clip., but has just 10 extra-base hits and his strikeout rate is up over 29.1%. He still carries all-star upside but at some point he has to make more contact and produce at the plate. The good news is, he’s healthy.


No. 7 Evan White, 1B
WED: DNP
2019: .269/.341/.397, 4-2B, 2 HR, 7 RBI, 8 BB, 22 SO


No. 14 Ricardo Sanchez, LHS
WED: DNP
2019: 40 IP, 39 H, 14 ER, 10 BB, 30 SO, 3.15 ERA


No. 15 Dom Thompson-Williams, OF
WED: 0-4, BB, SO
2019: .295/.385/.508, 4-2B, 2-3B, 6 HR, 18 RBI, 17 BB, 36 SO, 8 SB


No. 16 Jake Fraley, OF
WED: 0-4, SO
2019: .295/.372/.481, 5-2B, 2-3B, 5 HR, 20 RBI, 13 BB, 31 SO, 8 SB


No. 24 Wyatt Mills, RHR
WED:
DNP
2019:
15.2 IP, 20 H, 11 ER, 9 BB, 14 SO, 2 SVS


No. 23 Art Warren, RHP

2019: 1-0, 5 SV, 1.04 ERA, 8.2 IP, 6 H, 3 BB, 10 SO, 5 SVS


No. 27 Darren McCaughan, RHS
WED: DNP
2019: 7 GS, 4.19 ERA, 38.2 IP, 44 H, 2 BB, 34 SO


Modesto Nuts (A+) — California League

No. 5 Logan Gilbert, RHS
WED: DNP
2019: 29 IP, 18 H, 7 ER, 9 BB, 42 SO, 2.63 ERA

Gilbert’s K rate is at 36.5% combined between his time in the South Atlantic League and his two starts for Modesto.


No. 9 Cal Raleigh, C
WED: 1-3, BB, 2 SO
2019: .215/.292/.431, 7-2B, 7 HR, 23 RBI, 13 BB, 33 SO

Raleigh is on a little mini-run of more hard contact and more contact in general.

2019: 8 GS, 45.2 IP, 38 H, 13 ER, 6 BB, 63 SO, 2.56 ERA
