Mariners minor league report, August 27

Here is today’s Mariners’ minor league round-up, which offers the team’s official minor league report from Kelly Munro that features, notes, stats and box scores. There are also game results on all of the organization’s minor league affiliates that were in action.

Sorry about the lack of blog post yesterday, the Jack Zduriencik extension announcement kind of sidetracked me.

I tweeted it out yesterday, but six players were selected for the Arizona Fall League.

  • DJ Peterson
  • Patrick Kivlehan
  • Matt Brazis
  • Stephen Landazuri
  • Matt Anderson
  • John Hicks

No real surprise on Peterson and Kivlehan. Peterson was scheduled to play last season but suffered the broken jaw. Kivlehan was his replacement for the AFL last season.

Right-handed reliever Trevor Miller has been called up to Class AAA Tacoma to help the pitching depleted Rainiers.

From the release …. Miller, 23, posted a 5-8 record, with a 3.81 ERA (47ER/111.0IP) in 31 games and 13 starts this season. Miller was moved from the starting rotation to the bullpen in June and as a reliever was 2-1, with a 1.40 ERA (7ER/45.0IP), tallying his first 4 saves of his career. Leaving Jackson, Miller has not allowed an earned run in his last 23.1 innings over 10 relief appearances. During this stretch, since July 24, he has limited opponents to a .203 (16×79) average, while walking 4 and striking out 19.

Class AAA Tacoma

The Rainiers won 5-3, but were eliminated from postseason play. Stefen Romero extended his hitting streak to 15 games in the win. Romero went 3-for-5 in the win. Tonight is the final home game of the season for the Rainiers.
