  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Bound for bullpen

    Seattle manager Scott Servais said Wednesday that Flexen will shift to the bullpen, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. The Mariners foreshadowed Flexen's move to a relief role during their 1-0 win over the Yankees in 13 innings Tuesday, when he was spotted warming up in the bullpen late in the contest. Flexen wasn't ultimately needed to enter the game, but the Mariners will opt to shorten their rotation to five men after he was lit up for five runs over six innings in his most recent start Saturday against the Angels. Seattle could look to bring Flexen back into the rotation later in the season if workload concerns crop up for rookie George Kirby, but for the time being, the veteran right-hander will retain little fantasy value while he likely handles a low-leverage multi-inning role out of the bullpen.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Surrenders five runs in loss

    Flexen (7-9) took the loss during a 7-1 defeat in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Angels, allowing five runs on six hits and two walks with five strikeouts in six innings. Flexen navigated the first two innings unscathed before surrendering five runs over the next four innings to fall in line for the loss. The rough outing breaks a five-start streak of allowing two runs or fewer, during which the 28-year-old pitched to a 1.95 ERA across 27.2 innings. Flexen sports a 3.92 ERA and 1.37 WHIP with 81 strikeouts in 117 innings across 21 starts and is scheduled to pitch again next weekend on the road against the Rangers.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Sleeper pitchers for Week 18 (Aug. 1-7)

    Flexen hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any of his past 12 starts, compiling a 2.93 ERA during that stretch. His ERA estimators all suggest things are about to take a turn for the worse, but probably not this week against a miserable Angels offense.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Walks four in no-decision

    Flexen gave up two earned runs on three hits and four walks while striking out one over 5.1 innings in a 5-4 win over the Astros on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision. Flexen held his own against a dangerous Astros lineup and left the game in line for the win after going 5.1 innings on 94 pitches. The 28-year-old right hander used the free pass defensively, and he chose to pitch around Yordan Alvarez and Alex Bregman by issuing back-to-back four-pitch walks in the bottom of the first before getting out of the inning unscathed. Flexen came into the game with a 1.61 ERA and three wins in July and is showing that he can be effective, even with a weak K/BB of 1.9. Flexen has struck out only 76 batters in 111 innings while issuing 41 walks in 2022. He is tentatively expected to start next week against the Angels.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Submits quality start in win

    Flexen (7-8) allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings, earning the win Monday over the Rangers. Flexen allowed a run to score on a wild pitch in the third inning and gave up a solo home run to Adolis Garcia in the sixth. In four starts in July, Flexen has yielded four runs in 22.1 innings while earning three wins. He hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his last 11 starts, settling in to provide consistency in the middle of the Mariners' rotation. He has a 3.75 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 75:37 K:BB in 105.2 innings through 19 starts overall, and his next one is projected to be this weekend in Houston.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Sleeper pitchers for Week 17 (July 25-31)

    Flexen's success doesn't make a lot of sense, but we're in Year 2 of that now. With a 2.88 ERA in his past 10 starts, he's worth considering any time he's in line for two starts, even if the matchups are iffy.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Gives up one run on short rest

    Flexen gave up one earned run on four hits and one walk while striking out three over 3.2 innings in a 6-2 win over the Rangers on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision. Flexen only threw 76 pitches -- the least he had thrown since June 3 -- but he held the Rangers to one run and left the game with the lead in the fourth inning. The 28-year-old right-hander now boasts an excellent 1.10 ERA in July and has only given up two earned runs all month. Flexen has a 70:35 K:BB in 99.2 innings this season. He appears to be in line for a two-start week beginning the Monday after the All-Star break with a rematch at home against the Rangers followed by a trip to Houston.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Starting on short rest Sunday

    Flexen will start on short rest Sunday against the Rangers, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. Flexen earned the win during Wednesday's matinee against the Nationals, allowing a run on six hits and two walks while striking out one in six innings. Although he threw 85 pitches during the start, the Mariners will elect to line him up on short rest for the team's final game prior to the All-Star break. It wouldn't be surprising to see the 28-year-old on a slight pitch count during Sunday's matchup in Texas.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Snags sixth win in twin bill

    Flexen (6-8) picked up the win in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Nationals, allowing one run on six hits and two walks over six innings in a 6-4 victory. He struck out one. The right-hander also hit one batter with a pitch and managed a paltry six swinging strikes in 85 pitches, but the Nats didn't make much hard contact against Flexen, with only one of their six hits against him going for extra bases. The 28-year-old delivered his third straight quality start and eighth of the season, and he'll take a 3.84 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 67:34 K:BB through 96 innings into his next outing, which will come after the All-Star break.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Tuesday's game postponed

    Flexen won't start as scheduled Tuesday at Washington since the game was postponed due to inclement weather. The right-hander last started July 4 in San Diego and delivered 6.2 scoreless innings, and he'll have to wait another day before retaking the mound due to some severe weather. The game is being made up via a doubleheader Wednesday, and Flexen figures to start one of those contests. The postponement means it's likely to be his last outing before the All-Star break.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Sleeper pitchers for Week 15 (July 11-17)

    Flexen's overall numbers are lackluster, but he has been fairly steady over his past eight starts, allowing no more than three earned runs in any of them for a 3.09 ERA. It feels like it could all come crashing down at any moment, but with two starts this week, including a particularly favorable one at the Nationals, he's worth a roll of the dice.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Denied two-start week

    Flexen is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday in Washington against the Nationals rather than in Sunday's series finale with the Blue Jays in Seattle, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports. After getting the Independence Day start against the Padres, Flexen appeared primed for a two-start week, but the Mariners instead used Wednesday's off day to reorder their rotation. Logan Gilbert, who started in Tuesday's 6-2 win over San Diego, will instead get the two-start week while he takes the hill Sunday on his normal four days' rest.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Fires 6.2 scoreless frames

    Flexen (5-8) earned the win during Monday's 8-2 victory over San Diego, allowing four hits and three walks with eight strikeouts in 6.2 scoreless innings. Seattle staked Flexen to a two-run lead before he even took the mound and the righty cruised to an easy win, retiring the first 10 Padres he faced. The 28-year-old has now won three consecutive starts while posting a solid 3.09 ERA during his last nine turns compared to a 4.00 mark on the season. Additionally, the eight strikeouts represent a season high as Flexen is averaging 3.9 per start during the nine-game stretch. He's scheduled to take the mound again this weekend against Toronto.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Improves to 4-8

    Flexen (4-8) picked up the win against the Orioles on Wednesday, allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out three. Flexen now has a personal winning streak going for the first time this season. After an ugly month of May, Flexen pitched to a respectable 4.09 ERA in June. His 1.45 WHIP and 21:12 K:BB in 33 innings in the month of June bode poorly for his chances of enjoying a similar level of run prevention moving forward.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Picks up win

    Flexen (3-8) earned the win Friday versus the Angels. He allowed three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three in five-plus innings. Flexen allowed a solo shot and an RBI triple to Mike Trout, and Ryan Borucki allowed an inherited runner to score in the sixth inning. This was Flexen's first win in five starts in June despite him not allowing more than three runs in any of those games. He's still not pitching deep into games, as he's completed six innings only five times in 14 starts. The right-hander has a 4.31 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 55:27 K:BB across 77.1 innings. He's lined up for a favorable home start versus the Orioles next week.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Solid in no-decision

    Flexen allowed two runs on six hits and two walks with five strikeouts in 5.1 innings in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Angels. He did not factor in the decision. Flexen hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his last five starts, but he's gone 1-2 in that span. He's also kept the ball in the yard in four of those five games. The right-hander hasn't done anything particularly remarkable this year with a 4.23 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 52:25 K:BB through 72.1 innings, and he'll carry a 2-8 record into next week's projected road rematch with the Angels.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Tagged with eighth loss

    Flexen (2-8) took the loss against Minnesota on Monday, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings. Flexen yielded plenty of traffic on the bases Monday, allowing multiple baserunners in four of his five frames. Still, he did a good job of limiting the damage, allowing a two-run homer to the second batter he faced in the first inning but keeping a strong Twins offense off the scoreboard the rest of the way. Flexen's early trouble was enough to send him to his eighth loss -- tied for second-most in the majors -- though his 4.30 ERA suggests that he hasn't been as bad as the record implies. In fact, the right-hander has posted a solid 3.04 ERA across 23.2 innings over his past four starts, though a 1.39 WHIP and 16:8 K:BB during that stretch isn't great.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Pitches into seventh

    Flexen (2-7) got the loss Tuesday after he pitched 6.2 innings, surrendering two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out two versus the Astros. Flexen tossed three scoreless innings to open the contest before the Astros got to him for two runs in the bottom of the fourth, accounting for all the damage against him in the outing. He has held his own against the Astros this season, surrendering a total of seven runs over 24.2 frames in four starts against the club this year, good for a 2.55 ERA in those outings. Flexen has now allowed six runs over 18.2 frames in his last three starts after giving up five runs over four innings against the Red Sox on May 21, lowering his ERA from 4.98 to 4.35 over 11 outings this season. He tentatively lines up to pitch again Monday versus the Twins.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Quality start in no-decision

    Flexen did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk over five innings against Baltimore. He struck out three. Flexen struggled out of the gate, allowing two doubles and a single while throwing a wild pitch that all resulted in two first-inning runs for the Orioles. Baltimore added another run in the third, but Flexen minimized the damage and escaped with his seventh quality start of the campaign. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday's road matchup against the Astros.

  • Mariners' Chris Flexen: Escapes with no-decision Saturday

    Flexen didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Red Sox, surrendering five runs on eight hits and three walks over four-plus innings. He struck out two. The right-hander got staked to a 4-0 lead before he even set foot on the mound and took a 5-1 lead into the fifth inning, but Flexen allowed four straight hits to begin the bottom of that frame before getting the hook, including two doubles and a Rafael Devers homer, and all four came around to score. This was Flexen's shortest start yet this season, but he's failed to complete six innings in four straight starts. He'll carry a ragged 4.98 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 31:15 K:BB through 43.1 innings into his next outing.
