      Willie Bloomquist: Retires after 14 seasons

      Bloomquist announced his retirement on Twitter on Friday. Bloomquist last swung a bat in June 2015 and likely wasn't finding a team for 2016, so he'll hang it up and a career spanning 14 seasons. He played for four different teams in his career and finished with a career .269/.316/.342 line and appearances at every position on the field except for pitcher and catcher.

      SS Willie Bloomquist earns rare start for Mariners

      Utility man Willie Bloomquist earned a start at shortstop for the Mariners on Saturday, hitting eighth in the lineup as they take on the Rays. Bloomquist has played the most at short for the M's this season, but hasn't provided them much punch, as he's hitting just .163 with three RBIs on the year. The Mariners have struggled to find consistent production at short, with Brad Miller hitting just .228 and Chris Taylor not hitting before he was sent to Triple-A.

      Mariners RF Willie Bloomquist drives home decisive two runs Saturday

      Mariners right fielder Willie Bloomquist went 1 for 4 at the plate in Seattle's 3-2 win over the Blue Jays on Saturday. Bloomquist did his damage in the third inning when he belted a double off of Mark Buehrle, scoring two runs. "It felt great. I'm not going to lie," Bloomquist said to MLB.com. "It's been a little bit of a battle for me so far this year, but to come up with a big hit in a big situation right there was obviously that we needed today as a team. And for me, personally, it felt pretty good." Bloomquist is now hitting .184 with three RBI in 38 at-bats this season. "I don't hit too many of them, but I did think I got that one," said Bloomquist. "I thought I got enough of it. But you hear the thump against the wall, and you're like, 'C'mon, really?' Then I watched the replay, and we're talking less than a foot. I'm heading to the weight room right now to get another set in."

      Mariners make wholesale changes to spark lineup

      The slumping Mariners juggled their lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, hoping to find a spark for a team that hasn't lived up to expectations. Willie Bloomquist returns to the starting lineup for the first time in 11 games, hitting second and playing left field, while Justin Ruggiano and Rickie Weeks also draw rare starts in center and DH, respectively. Those moves bump Dustin Ackley and Brad Miller out of the lineup. Ackley has seen his average plummet to .186 this season. Miller has been one of the hottest Seattle hitters, but went 0-for-4 Tuesday to snap a six-game hitting streak.
