Player Outlook
Cooper Hummel was dealt to Seattle from Arizona in the deal for Kyle Lewis last winter, and he was able to break camp with the Mariners and even saw some time in the lineup to begin 2023. He went just 2-for-23 in his chances, however, and he didn't see another at-bat with the M's after April 18. The left-handed hitter was effective in Tacoma with an .835 OPS and 27 steals over 455 plate appearances, and he's slashed .288/.420/.492 in his 225 games at the Triple-A level. Hummel is a patient hitter who doesn't possess a ton of swing-and-miss, but he also doesn't have the power potential that you typically see in a viable corner-outfield option. He does have the ability to catch, and that versatility and approach gives him a chance to make the Seattle roster out of the Cactus League. It just won't likely make him worthy of a fantasy roster anytime soon, if ever.

  • Mariners' Cooper Hummel: Nabs Opening Day spot

    Hummel is part of the Mariners' Opening Day roster, Daniel Kramer of reports. The 28-year-old Hummel finished spring training with walks across each of his last three plate appearances Sunday and Monday, capping a strong body of work in Cactus League play that included a .275/.420/.675 line across 50 plate appearances. Kramer notes Hummel's versatility -- he's capable of filling in at catcher and the corner outfield spots -- helped seal his spot on the Opening Day roster, although his offensive contributions certainly may have put him over the top.

The 28-year-old, who logged the first 201 plate appearances of his big-league career last season with the Diamondbacks after spending six-plus seasons in the minors, has been a constant presence on the basepaths all spring, and Kramer notes Hummel's defensive versatility would give the Mariners more flexibility with the workloads of the top backstop duo of Cal Raleigh and Tom Murphy.

  • Diamondbacks' Cooper Hummel: Starts at catcher

    Hummel started at catcher and went 1-for-4 in Wednesday's 18-2 loss to Philadelphia. All five of Hummel's starts since being recalled Aug. 9 have come behind the dish. Normally an outfielder, Hummel added catching duties to his resume in 2022, and any playing time for the rest of the season will likely come as a catcher, as Arizona's outfield is crowded with some of the organization's best prospects, in addition to the suddenly valuable Jake McCarthy. Daulton Varsho -- one of the prospects in the outfield that came up through the system as a catcher -- could also be used behind the plate, but he's primarily focused on right field.

  • Diamondbacks' Cooper Hummel: Active in win

    Hummel started in left field and went 1-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base and two runs scored in Monday's 8-3 win over the Giants. Hummel was recently called up, giving Arizona another right-handed bat -- he's a switch hitter -- to deploy against the southpaws, like San Francisco's Carlos Rodon. The 27-year-old outfielder batted .178 during his first MLB stint in 2022, but after a productive stretch at Triple-A Reno, Hummel has hit in three consecutive games with two stolen bases.
