  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Begins six-game suspension

    Winker is out of the lineup for Monday's game in San Diego and will begin serving his six-game suspension Monday, Daniel Kramer of reports.

    Since Winker was one of three Seattle players that received suspensions for their roles in the benches-clearing melee that occurred June 26 against the Angels, MLB allowed the Mariners to stagger the suspensions for the players in question. With J.P. Crawford having completed his four-game suspension Sunday and drawing back into the lineup Monday, Winker will now begin his suspension, which was reduced from seven games following an appeal. Dylan Moore is starting in left field Monday, while Justin Upton and Sam Haggerty could also see more work in the outfield while Winker is unavailable. Winker is eligible to return July 12 against the Nationals, at which point Julio Rodriguez -- who is appealing a two-game suspension -- may begin serving his ban, if it's not dismissed entirely.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Ban reduced, starting Saturday

    Winker, who is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Athletics, has had his suspension reduced to six games, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Winker was initially issued a seven-game suspension for his role in a brawl during last Sunday's game against the Angels, but he had his punishment reduced by one matchup following his appeal. Since he's starting in left field and batting second Saturday, he presumably won't begin to serve his suspension until at least Sunday.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Keeps producing Thursday

    Winker went 2-for-4 with a double and a run in a win over the Athletics on Thursday.

    Winker produced one of two multi-hit efforts of the night for Seattle, pushing his season slash line to an uneven .235/.353/.351. The 28-year-old is still awaiting word on his appeal of the suspension he received for igniting an ugly brawl against the Angels on Sunday, and he's now boasting a .412/.524/.706 slash line with 12 extra-base hits across his last 10 games.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Plates only runs Tuesday

    Winker went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in a win over the Orioles on Tuesday.

    Winker, who is appealing his seven-game ban for his role during a benches-clearing brawl against the Angels on Sunday, came through with a two-bagger in the eighth inning that snapped a scoreless tie. The veteran outfielder is enjoying an impressive close to June after starting the month mired in a deep funk, as he's hitting .400 (10-for-25) with three doubles, two home runs and eight RBI across the 33 plate appearances covering his last eight games.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Gets seven-game ban

    Winker has been suspended seven games for his actions during a benches-clearing brawl on Sunday against the Angels, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Winker received the longest suspension of any player involved in the incident. He has appealed the decision so will remain the starter in left field while hitting third Monday against the Orioles.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Ejected after inciting brawl

    Winker was ejected from Sunday's game against the Angels in the second inning after he was involved in a benches-clearing brawl, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Adam Frazier came on to pinch run for Winker, who charged toward the Angels bench after he was hit by a pitch during his first plate appearance of the day. In the ensuing brawl, multiple Mariners and Angels players were seen throwing punches, though it's unclear if Winker was one of them. MLB will likely review footage of the brawl over the next day or two before determining if Winker or any other Mariners and Angels players will be subject to fines or suspension. Angels starter Andrew Wantz -- who hit Winker with the pitch -- was also ejected after the game resumed following an 18-minute delay.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Stays hot in Saturday's win

    Winker went 2-for-4 with a bases-loaded walk in a win over the Angels on Saturday.

    Winker knotted the game at 2-2 in the sixth inning by displaying a discerning eye at the plate with the bases loaded. The multi-hit effort was also the fourth in the last five games for the ascending outfielder, who's now sporting an eye-popping .625 on-base percentage over the 24 plate appearances he's logged over that span.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Gets aboard four times

    Winker has hit well lately, going 7-for-14 with two home runs, two doubles and five walks in his last four games. The outfielder hasn't found long stretches of consistency at the plate, but his 15.8 percent walk rate has kept him productive. For the season, he's slashing .226/.347/.343 with six home runs, 29 RBI, 24 runs scored and 11 doubles across 70 contests.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Homers again Wednesday

    Winker went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Wednesday's 9-0 win over the Athletics.

    Winker contributed an RBI single in the third inning and a two-run blast in the fifth. He's homered in consecutive contests for the first time all year, and three of his last four hits have gone for extra bases. The outfielder is up to a .219/.337/.335 slash line, six long balls, 29 RBI and 22 runs scored through 68 contests. It's too soon to say he's shaking off his season-long power outage, but it's clear he's making some progress in that area, though that could also be a product of facing the Athletics' pitching.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Clubs homer in win

    Winker went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double and two RBI in Tuesday's 8-2 win over the Athletics.

    Winker contributed an RBI double in the sixth inning and a solo shot in the seventh as the Mariners took control of the game. The outfielder had gone just 1-for-10 across his last five contests before Tuesday's two-hit effort. The homer was his third in June and his fifth of the season to go with a .214/.332/.319 slash line, 26 RBI, 21 runs scored and 10 doubles in 67 games. With Dylan Moore and Justin Upton challenging for playing time, Winker could find himself on the bench against southpaws more frequently going forward -- he sat out against two of the three lefties the Mariners faced over the weekend against the Angels.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: On bench for Game 2

    Winker is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Angels.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Not starting afternoon game

    Winker will sit for the first half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Angels,.

    The Mariners will likely give many of their regulars a rest in one of the day's two games. The Angels are sending out southpaws (Patrick Sandoval and Jose Suarez) in both contests, so it likely didn't matter much which game Winker would sit for. Dylan Moore will take over in left field.

  • Mariners' Jesse Winker: Bought out of arbitration years

    Winker signed a contract with the Mariners on Thursday, agreeing to a two-year, $14.5 million pact, Robert Murray of reports.

    Winker had been playing without an official contract for 2022 after he failed to come to terms with the Mariners in his second year of arbitration eligibility, but he's now on the books for the next two seasons before hitting free agency following the 2023 campaign. Though he's disappointed in his first season in Seattle with a .634 OPS across 264 plate appearances, the 28-year-old Winker is still viewed as a core player in the organization.
