  • Mariners' Ty France: Makes changes to swing in offseason

    France, who posted his least productive batting line since his rookie 2019 season in 2023, made changes to his swing this offseason for the first time in his career, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    France's struggles actually began during the latter portion of the 2022 campaign, and given the extended period of below-average performance, the veteran decided to seek out the counsel of Driveline Baseball this offseason. The 29-year-old says the company's biometric data was able to identify where his swing had gone wrong, including pinpointing that he was overusing his hands and that his sequencing from the ground up was very inefficient. France says he's added close to 3.5 mph of bat speed this offseason with the corrections he's been able to make, and manager Scott Servais has been encouraged by what he's seen from France thus far. "I think he looks great," Servais said. "I know it's going to pay off for him when it's going to click, but I know it's going quick. He can hit, he's got track record of it. Being in the best shape he's been in his life, that's part of it, too."

  • Mariners' Ty France: Avoids arbitration with SEA

    France signed a one-year, $6.775 million contract with the Mariners on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

    France receives a $2.675 million salary increase after slashing .250/.337/.366 with 12 home runs and 58 RBI last season -- his worst numbers since joining the Mariners in 2020. He remains in position to serve as Seattle's everyday first baseman, but he will need to bounce back at the plate in order to reattain his former fantasy value.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Opens scoring with homer

    France went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Friday's 8-0 win over the Rangers.

    After recently snapping a 36-game homer drought, France has gone deep twice in his last four contests. The first baseman's blast Friday opened the scoring in the third inning. He's at 12 homers, 58 RBI, 79 runs scored, one stolen base, 32 doubles and a .250/.336/.367 slash line through 156 games this season.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Ends power drought

    France went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Astros.

    France logged his third multi-hit effort in his last four games. More importantly, he hit his first homer since Aug. 15, a span of 36 games in which he batted a paltry .220 and slugged just .252. Despite his poor hitting lately, France has maintained a fairly steady spot in the Mariners' lineup. He's at a .251/.336/.365 slash line with 11 homers, 57 RBI, 77 runs scored, a stolen base and 32 doubles through a career-high 153 games this season.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Wraps up strong week Saturday

    France went 2-for-4 in an extra-innings loss to the Dodgers on Saturday, pushing his average over the last five games to .353 (6-for-17).

    All six of France's hits during that span have been singles, but he reached safely in all five contests to push his season on-base percentage to an impressive .340. However, the veteran infielder's current surge still leaves his season average at a middling .252 -- way off the .285 figure he's averaged over the last three seasons -- with the downturn at least partly attributable to a small bump in strikeout rate to 18.1 percent from tallies of 16.3 percent and 15.4 percent in the prior pair of campaigns.

  • Mariners' Ty France: On base four times Wednesday

    France went 2-for-3 with an RBI single, a run-scoring double, two walks and two runs in a win over the Reds on Wednesday.

    A trio of teammates made more noise via the long ball, but France was arguably the biggest thorn in the side of Reds pitching Wednesday by reaching safely in four of his five plate appearances. The 29-year-old pushed his season on-base percentage to .345 with the busy night, his highest figure in that category since June 25.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Singles, scores in return to action

    France (elbow) went 1-for-4 with a run in a loss to the Reds on Monday.

    France was able to draw the start at first base after a day off Sunday to rest his sore elbow following a hit-by-pitch Saturday. The veteran didn't appear any worse for wear from his MLB-high 29th plunking of the season, but his extra-base-hit drought continued -- France last reached safely with anything more than a single 12 games ago via a double Aug. 21 against the White Sox.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Back in action Monday

    France (elbow) is starting at first base and batting sixth Monday versus the Reds in his return to the lineup, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.

    He didn't play Sunday after exiting Saturday's contest following a hit-by-pitch on the right elbow but is ready to roll for Monday's festivities. August was France's best offensive month this season, but he comes into action Monday with just a .602 OPS over his last 10 games.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Exits with elbow contusion

    France was lifted from Saturday's game versus the Mets with a right elbow contusion, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.

    He was struck by a Grant Hartwig pitch in the sixth inning and immediately left the game. It's not clear at this point whether France has undergone X-rays, but more should be available on his status after the game. The first baseman went 1-for-2 with a single prior to the hit-by-pitch.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Not starting Sunday

    France (elbow) isn't in the Mariners' lineup Sunday against the Mets.

    France was pulled from Saturday's game after taking a pitch off his right elbow, and he'll sit out Sunday's contest as he recovers. Mike Ford will fill in at first base and bat seventh.

  • Mariners' Ty France: On base once in return to action

    France (wrist) went 0-for-3 with a walk in a win over the Athletics on Wednesday.

    France was back in the lineup and starting at first base after being removed from Tuesday's game due to getting struck on the left wrist during a pickoff attempt. The veteran infielder was able to get on base via a free pass to push his OBP over the last 11 games to an elite .404, and his ability to play a full game seemingly corroborates he'll be unimpeded by his wrist contusion moving forward.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Will be in lineup Wednesday

    Mariners manager Scott Servais said France (wrist) will be in the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Athletics, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    France was removed from Tuesday's 3-1 loss after a ball struck his left wrist on a pickoff attempt. He's evidently feeling much better a day later and won't wind up missing any starts. France boasts an .868 OPS so far in August.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Removed with bruised wrist

    France was pulled from Tuesday's game with a left wrist contusion.

    France was hit in the wrist during a pickoff attempt in the second inning of Tuesday's contest and was taken out of the game shortly afterward. France's injury certainly could have been much worse, but his status for Wednesday's game is uncertain. For now, fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Another multi-hit effort Monday

    France went 2-for-3 with a walk in Monday's 7-0 win over the Athletics.

    France had been mired in a brief 3-for-17 funk coming into Monday, so his three trips on the basepaths were an especially welcome sight. The veteran infielder has still put together a productive August despite the recent skid, as he's now sporting a .284 average, .877 OPS, nine extra-base hits, 12 RBI, 12 walks and 11 runs over 25 games during the month, getting on base another nine times while being hit by pitches.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Remains blistering hot Wednesday

    France went 1-for-1 with an RBI single, three walks and a run in a win over the Royals on Wednesday.

    Fresh off a four-hit tally Tuesday, France played some small ball to perfection a day later with a pesky effort that featured his third multi-walk tally over his last 11 games. The veteran infielder carries a .353 average and astounding .511 on-base percentage over the 45 plate appearances covering that span, a sample during which he's also knocked in 10 runs thanks to a .714 average with runners in scoring position.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Four-hit breakout Tuesday

    France went 4-for-6 with a two-run single, a double and a solo home run in an extra-inning win over the Royals on Tuesday.

    France authored his first four-hit effort of the season and third multi-hit tally in the last six games in the extra-inning victory, which he sealed with his 10th-inning base knock. The veteran infielder has now left the yard in three of the last 10 contests as well, a stretch during which he's produced a .333 average, 1.117 OPS and tiny 7.5 percent strikeout rate across 40 plate appearances.

  • Mariners' Ty France: Pads lead with homer

    France went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Friday's 9-2 win over the Orioles.

    France has two homers, eight RBI and three doubles over his last 13 games, a span in which he's gone 16-for-45 (.356). The first baseman struggled for most of July, but he's getting back on track as the Mariners surge in pursuit of a wild-card spot. For the season, he's at a .256/.330/.384 slash line with nine homers, 46 RBI, 62 runs scored, one stolen base and 27 doubles through 112 games.
