  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Showing improvement at Tacoma

    Brash has gone 11 straight relief outings of an inning apiece at Triple-A Tacoma without allowing an earned run, Brent Stecker of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Brash was knocked around for five earned runs over one inning by Sacramento back on May 22, but he began his current scoreless streak in his next outing May 25. The promising right-hander opened the season as the Mariners' fifth starter before control issues lead to a May 5 demotion to Tacoma, where he's transitioned to the bullpen after the team decided it would be the role he'd be best suited for this season. Stecker notes Brash hasn't allowed so much as a single walk in 10 of the aforementioned 11 appearances, including six straight.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Abysmal in latest minors outing

    Brash yielded five earned runs on two home runs, three walks and two wild pitches over one inning in Triple-A Tacoma's loss to Sacramento on Sunday. He struck out one.

    Brash had produced some encouraging results in his first four trips to the mound for the Rainiers following a May 5 demotion from the Mariners, but Sunday's outing highlighted the two biggest culprits in his getting sent down in the first place. Brash allowed three- and two-run homers during his one frame and had severe issues with his control, which evoked memories of the 1.4 HR/9 and 7.7 BB/9 he generated across five starts before getting booted off the big-league roster. The right-hander figures to continue working out of Tacoma's bullpen for the time being while he further refines his game.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Gets hold in Rainiers debut

    Brash was credited with his first hold in Triple-A Tacoma's win over Salt Lake on Sunday, allowing an earned run on a solo home run, an additional hit and two walks over two innings. He struck out three.

    Just demoted from the big-league club Thursday, Brash was solid in his first minor-league appearance of 2022, albeit while displaying a hint of the control issues that led to him being cast off the Mariners roster for the moment. Brash is slated to remain in a bullpen role with the Rainiers for the time being as he acclimates to the Triple-A level and Pacific Coast League specifically -- the 23-year-old jumped to the majors directly from Double-A when he made the Opening Day roster coming out of spring training.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Set for bullpen role in minors

    Brash will pitch out of the bullpen to begin his time at Triple-A Tacoma, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    The right-hander served mainly as a starter in the minors last year, and his first five big-league appearances this season came in a starting role. Although manager Scott Servais said Brash's move to the bullpen isn't necessarily permanent, the team will see whether the transition helps him perform better. He had a 7.65 ERA over 20 innings for Seattle, and a timetable for the 23-year-old's return to the majors will likely depend on how he fares in Tacoma.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Sent down Thursday

    Brash was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday.

    Brash hadn't pitched above the Double-A level prior to the 2022 season, but he entered the year with fairly lofty expectations after winning a spot on the Opening Day roster. He posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.22 WHIP while striking out 11 in 10.2 innings during his first two major-league starts but was much less effective recently. He was charged with losses in his last two starts after allowing 10 runs in five innings. The right-hander will attempt to sort things out in the minors, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him rejoin the big-league club some time later in the year, assuming he performs well in Tacoma.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Another sub-par start

    Brash (1-3) allowed four earned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out three across three innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Astros.

    Brash ran into the majority of his trouble in the second inning when he allowed three of the first four batters he faced to reach base, all of which ultimately came around to score. Poor control continued to be a significant source of Brash's problems, as he has walked at least four batters in three of his five outings this season. That has resulted in both short and ugly outings, as he has also failed to work at least five innings in each of his last three appearances, allowing 13 earned runs across 9.1 frames. Overall, Brash has a 7.65 ERA with a 19:17 K:BB across 20 innings to begin the campaign.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Hit hard Friday

    Brash (1-2) gave up six earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three in two innings Friday against the Mariners. He took the loss.

    Jorge Soler hit a 468-foot two-run home run off Brash in the first inning and he kept giving up hits until Seattle was forced to pull him. Brash's fastball was averaging 96.3 mph, which was a tick above his season average (95.8 mph) and he got plenty of whiffs on his fastball (four) and slider (five), but he primarily relied on those two pitches. This outing was poor enough that it's conceivable the Mariners opt to let Brash try to get things sorted out in the minors, so it's no guarantee he will take the ball next week in Houston as scheduled.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Allows three runs in no-decision

    Brash didn't factor into the decision during Saturday's 13-7 win against Kansas City, allowing three runs on five hits and four walks with two strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

    Brash permitted one run in the first and kept Kansas City off the board despite traffic on the bases until the fifth inning, when the bullpen allowed two inherited runners to score once Brash was pulled. The 23-year-old rookie has a serviceable 4.20 ERA through three starts and 15 innings, but he's walked an MLB-leading 11 batters including 10 over his last two turns. He'll look to limit the free passes as he's tentatively set to face Miami on Friday for his next start.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Picks up first win

    Brash (1-1) got the win during Sunday's 7-2 victory over Houston, allowing two runs on two hits and six walks with five strikeouts in 5.1 innings.

    Despite the win, Brash struggled with his control and was aided by four double plays from the Seattle defense that erased four of his six walks. Houston finally got to the rookie with a two-run Michael Brantley home run in the sixth, but at that point the 23-year-old was already staked to a six-run lead. He's tentatively set to face the Royals on Saturday for his next turn.

  • Mariners' Matt Brash: Pitches well in MLB debut

    Brash (0-1) was charged with the loss Tuesday against the White Sox after allowing two runs on four hits with six strikeouts and one walk across 5.1 innings.

    Brash skipped the Triple-A level and earned a spot in Seattle's Opening Day rotation, and he delivered in his big-league debut while facing a strong offense. The 23-year-old was still dealt the loss despite his performance, but it was a promising effort from the right-hander. Brash is likely to be tested again his next time out as he currently lines up to pitch Sunday versus Houston.
