Mariners' Yovani Gallardo: Eager to put 2016 season behind him
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gallardo, who battled shoulder problems last season and failed to make 30 starts for the first time since 2008, is fully healthy and excited about his new team heading into spring training, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

The veteran workhorse got matters started off on the wrong foot last season and never fully recovered. After a solid 13-11 season in Texas in 2015, Gallardo was in limbo last offseason because his free-agent status came saddled with a qualifying offer, meaning the club that signed him would surrender a first-round pick. By the time the Orioles finally came calling, spring training was already a week old, leaving Gallardo behind the rest of the pitchers in terms of preparation. Concerns about his shoulder that arose during his physical also caused Baltimore to reduce its original offer. The 30-year-old righty eventually had to go on the DL with biceps tendinitis after experiencing shoulder tightness before the fourth start of the season, finishing with a 6-8 record and career-high 5.42 ERA over 23 starts. His control, never stellar, deteriorated to a new low, as his 4.65 BB/9 was the worst of his career, while his 67.8 percent strand rate and 1.22 HR/9 also represented his poorest figures in those categories. However, Gallardo altered his offseason routine to focus more on strengthening his shoulder and reported feeling "really good" after throwing his initial bullpen session last Thursday, a performance that drew the praise of general manager Jerry DiPoto.

Mariners' Steve Cishek: Will ease into throwing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cishek (hip) will play catch for the first time out to 60 feet on Tuesday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

This will be the first time the righty will throw since arriving to camp, but he'll ease himself into action for the time being, as he is still weeks away from actually tossing off a mound. Cishek's hip procedure ended up being more serious than initially expected, so he'll continue to progress slowly, with his status remaining doubtful for Opening Day. When he returns, he'll likely challenge Nick Vincent for the top setup role behind closer Edwin Diaz.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: Excited about WBC and coming season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz, who will try to help the Mariners break their 15-year postseason drought in 2017, is highly optimistic about the coming season, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "I think we're more ready," the 36-year-old designated hitter said. "If you go from Kyle [Seager] to all the young guys that were here, guys that haven't been in the playoffs, the last week and a half last year was very exciting. Every at-bat was important, every pitch was important. But we came up short. So we need to make sure this year we're on top and clinch early."

The veteran slugger has a full schedule, considering he'll also be helping Team Dominican Republic defend its World Baseball Classic title alongside Mariners teammate Robinson Cano next month. Cruz's main focus is on his major league squad, however, as he attempts to help Seattle break its dubious streak of missing the postseason. Following an impressive 2016 campaign that saw him post a .287/.360/.555 line with 43 homers and 105 RBI, Cruz didn't rest on his laurels in the offseason, toiling away at the gym and checking in to spring training five pounds lighter than at the end of last season. With Seattle just missing an AL wild-card berth in 2016, Cruz is hopeful that the experience of competing late in the season, along with the flurry of offseason moves by general manager Jerry DiPoto, will be enough to propel the Mariners to the next level. "Now hopefully we can stay healthy. We should be in good shape. We should be at the top of the division."

Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Impresses in second throwing session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hernandez impressed in his second throwing session of spring training Sunday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The Mariners' ace got in a 10-minute session despite dealing with some rainy weather, and as he had Thursday, looked impressive while also drawing raves for his transformed physique, which includes several pounds of new muscle after a rigorous offseason training regimen. Hernandez is working on an accelerated throwing schedule overall this spring in anticipation of his participation in the World Baseball Classic with Team Venezuela.

Mariners' Ariel Miranda: Will act as starting pitcher during spring training
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Miranda will operate as a starting pitcher during spring training, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports. "He looks great this spring," said manager Scott Servais. "The things we asked him to work on over the offseason, as far as a little more consistent breaking ball, it looks really good. I like where he's at. We'll keep him stretched out."

With the offseason additions of Drew Smyly and Yovani Gallardo, Miranda became the odd man out in the Mariners' starting rotation. The fact that he'll operate as a starter during spring training suggests that the 27-year-old will be utilized as the team's primary replacement starter heading into the 2017 season.
