  • Mariners' George Kirby: Stymies Rangers in victory

    Kirby (8-4) earned the win over Texas on Wednesday, allowing one run on five hits and one walk while striking out four batters over six innings. Kirby got off to a rough start when he allowed two hits and a run in the first inning, but he found his footing from there and didn't allow any more Rangers to cross the plate. The rookie finished with his third quality start over his past four outings and notched his sixth win in 12 starts since the All-Star break. Over that stretch, he's posted a 2.63 ERA and 66:10 K:BB across 61.2 innings. Kirby will likely make one more regular-season start, and his strong second half should earn him a spot in Seattle's playoff rotation in the likely event that the team qualifies.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Can't get out of third inning

    Kirby gave up five runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out one over 2.1 innings in a 9-5 win Thursday in Oakland. He did not factor into the decision. Kirby was in trouble throughout the start as he allowed multiple baserunners in each inning he pitched. He managed to keep a run from scoring in the first two frames but allowed six of the seven batters he faced in the third to reach safely with five eventually crossing home plate. It was his shortest outing of the season and just the second time in his last 13 starts that he allowed more than two runs. His next start will likely be in the middle of next week against Texas.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Whiffs eight in loss

    Kirby (7-4) took the loss during Saturday's 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Angels, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk with eight strikeouts in six innings. Kirby permitted single runs in the first and fourth innings, which turned out to be enough for the loss as Seattle managed only one run on a Taylor Trammell solo home run in the eighth. The 24-year-old faced the minimum in his other four frames, and the eight strikeouts match his second-highest total over his last 11 turns. Prior to Saturday's loss, Kirby had won five of his last seven starts, and he possesses an impressive 2.03 ERA with 50 strikeouts across 44.1 innings in his last eight turns. He carries a 2.98 ERA and 1.12 WHIP into his next start, currently scheduled to come midweek.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Fans six in win

    Kirby (7-3) earned the win over Atlanta on Saturday, pitching six innings and allowing an unearned run on three hits and no walks while striking out six batters. Kirby was dominant through six frames, allowing just two baserunners -- one of whom was wiped out on a double play. He yielded a single to lead off the seventh and was pulled after the next batter reached on an error, but Seattle's bullpen did a good job of limiting the damage, and Kirby was tagged with just an unearned run. The rookie right-hander finished with his ninth quality start of the campaign, and he recorded his fifth win over his past seven starts. Kirby has rewarded fantasy managers who stuck with him after some early-season growing pains. Since the start of July, he's posted a 1.99 ERA and 66:7 K:BB over 58.2 innings.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Solid in rain-shortened start

    Kirby allowed a run on three hits and struck out two without issuing a walk over three innings in a no-decision versus the Guardians on Sunday. Kirby was cruising through three innings, but a massive rain delay ended his outing early. He ended up throwing 27 of 39 pitches for strikes in the abbreviated start, and he's still yet to walk multiple batters in any of his 20 outings this season. The rookie right-hander has a 3.15 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 109:16 K:BB through 105.2 innings, with the short start Sunday potentially helping his cause as some unplanned workload management. He's projected for a tough home start versus Atlanta next weekend.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Five scoreless in win

    Kirby (6-3) earned the victory Tuesday in Detroit, striking out five in five shutout innings while allowing two hits and a walk. Kirby made easy work of the Tigers' lineup, scattering two hits and retiring the side in order in three of his five frames. With Seattle leading 9-0, the rookie was removed after five innings, having thrown 79 pitches. It was the ninth straight start in which he allowed three or fewer runs and he is 4-0 with a 2.17 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, 58:7 K:BB and no homers allowed in 49.2 innings during that span.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Fans nine in no-decision

    Kirby didn't factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing one run on eight hits over seven innings in a 3-1 loss to the Nationals. He struck out nine without walking a batter. The rookie right-hander was impressive once again, firing an efficient 85 pitches (69 strikes) before exiting with the Mariners down 1-0, but his teammates were at least able to take him off the hook for the loss with a run in the eighth. Kirby hadn't worked more than six innings in a start since July 2 as Seattle keeps a close eye on his workload, but he still sports a 2.43 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 40:4 K:BB through 33.1 innings since the All-Star break.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Sleeper pitchers for Week 21 (Aug. 22-28)

    Kirby is never a bad play in Fantasy, but he tends to get yanked before he can deliver a quality start. The depleted Nationals lineup should help him achieve maximum efficiency this week.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Picks up win

    Kirby (5-3) earned the win against the Angels on Wednesday, allowing three runs on six hits while striking out seven and walking one over 5.2 innings. Kirby's outing Wednesday was a mixed bag, though he ended up with a solid result. He gave up three earned runs and six hits while throwing 63 of 94 pitches for strikes and allowed only one walk and struck out six batters while falling one out short of a quality start. Kirby has lasted six or more innings in just two of his last seven starts, a sign that Seattle may be limiting his innings. The righty will take a 3.47 ERA into his next outing.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Sleeper pitchers for Week 20 (Aug. 15-21)

    Looking secure in a rotation spot again with Chris Flexen having moved to the bullpen, Kirby is back to being an advisable option when he has the right matchups. That's certainly the case this week against an Angels lineup that has averaged 3.1 runs per game since the start of July.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Picks up fourth win

    Kirby (4-3) earn the win over the Rangers on Friday. He gave up two earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five over 5.2 innings. Kirby looked comfortable pitching on the road in Arlington, giving up only a couple of runs on a sacrifice groundout and single before coming out of the game having thrown 83 pitches. The rookie right-hander has shown impeccable control since entering the big leagues. Kirby boasts a 7.2 K/BB, having struck out 86 batters in 85 innings pitched while only issuing 12 walks. The Mariners are intent on monitoring Kirby's use down the stretch, so his upside is likely going to be limited by a pitch count going forward. He is tentatively expected to make his next start at the Angels next week.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Grabs third win

    Kirby (3-3) allowed one earned run over six innings and picked up the win in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Angels. He gave up six hits, struck out eight batters and walked none. The Mariners scored only two runs Saturday, but that was plenty for Kirby, who allowed only two extra-base hits and just missed tying his season high of nine strikeouts. Since being tagged for a season-high seven earned runs June 27, Kirby has given up only six earned runs over his last five starts, covering 26.1 innings in that span.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Lasts four innings Sunday

    Kirby allowed two runs on three hits, one walk and a hit batsman while striking out seven over four innings in a no-decision versus the Astros on Sunday. Kirby gave up both runs and four of the five baserunners he permitted in the first inning. He threw 74 pitches (42 strikes) in the appearance. The rookie right-hander finishes July with five runs and 18 hits allowed in 20.1 innings, though he's already up to 73.1 major-league innings and 100 at all levels in 2022. Kirby is still expected to be in the rotation mix after the Mariners acquired Luis Castillo on Friday. It's unclear how that will look in practice -- the Mariners could go straight to a six-man rotation, piggyback Kirby with a long reliever or employ some other strategy to manage his innings over the final two months of the season.

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

    The Angels offense has been an absolute dumpster fire without Mike Trout, so Kirby should be able to carve them up nicely. The strikeouts have been a bit lacking for him, but the Angels are the most strikeout-prone club against righties.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: To be kept in rotation mix

    Kirby's opportunity to pitch regularly will continue to be prioritized in the wake of the Mariners' trade for Luis Castillo on Friday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. The promising right-hander has already logged 69.1 innings across 13 starts with the Mariners in addition to another 26.2 frames in the minors. Kirby just returned from Triple-A Tacoma on July 26 to serve as the No. 5 starter and turned in five scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Rangers on Tuesday, and the team is intent on helping him get through a 162-game season for the first time as a professional. President of baseball operations Jerry Dipoto noted Friday he and manager Scott Servais would sit down and work on creative ways to make sure the rookie "stays on a regular turn and continues to contribute" despite the starting rotation now including six pitchers.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Recalled as expected

    The Mariners recalled Kirby from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday. Kirby will jump right into the rotation and start Tuesday's game versus the Rangers. Kirby owns a 3.78 ERA across 64.1 big-league innings innings, and he has gone at least 6.0 innings in six of his 12 starts with the Mariners.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Sleeper pitchers for Week 17 (July 25-31)

    Of Kirby's two matchups this week, the one against the Rangers is at least halfway decent. The Astros not so much, but he's of the caliber of pitcher you should be looking to use whenever he's in line for two starts.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Returning as No. 5 starter

    The Mariners plan to call up Kirby from Triple-A Tacoma to start Tuesday's home game against the Rangers. As was anticipated following the Mariners' decision to option him to Tacoma on July 9, Kirby will be rejoining the big club when it first requires a No. 5 starter following the All-Star break. Before the demotion, Kirby had proven his worth as an MLB-caliber starter by supplying a 3.78 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 62:9 K:BB across 64.1 frames, but the Mariners will continue to be mindful of the rookie's workload during his age-24 campaign. Between the Mariners, Tacoma and Double-A Arkansas, Kirby is up to 91 innings this season, and the organization may not be keen on having him push past the 130-to-140 range in 2022.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Set to rejoin rotation after break

    Mariners manager Scott Servais confirmed that Kirby will be called up from Triple-A Tacoma following the All-Star break to rejoin the big-league rotation, Jen Mueller of Root Sports Northwest reports. Rather than due to any dissatisfaction with Kirby's performance, the Mariners elected to demote the rookie right-hander over the weekend as a means of keeping his innings in check. According to Servais, Kirby is expected to make an abbreviated start Saturday for Tacoma before making his return to the majors. The Mariners estimate that the decision to demote Kirby at this point in the calendar will save about 10 innings off his season total for 2022. Between stops with the Mariners and Double-A Arkansas this season, Kirby has thus far covered 89 frames.

  • Mariners' George Kirby: Optioned to Tacoma

    Kirby was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday. Kirby has struggled a bit across his last three starts, allowing 10 earned runs, 22 hits and three walks in the span of 15.1 innings. However, this move likely has more to do with the team managing his workload as the All-Star break approaches, as he's already thrown 89 frames combined between Double-A Arkansas and Seattle in 2022. Kirby threw only 67.2 innings in 2021, and the Mariners aren't likely to take many chances with one of the best pitchers in the organization.
