Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Knocked around by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc (5-3) pitched four innings, allowing six runs on 10 hits while striking out five. He took the loss as the Mariners were defeated 9-2 by the Angels on Saturday.

LeBlanc has typically followed an opener in his recent appearances, but he was used as a traditional starter Saturday and failed to corral the Angels' bats. The 34-year-old's ERA ballooned to 5.15 with a 1.40 WHIP and 55:17 K:BB in 71.2 innings this season. LeBlanc will likely follow an opener in his next appearance, scheduled for next Saturday's rematch with the Angels.

Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Not following opener Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc will work as a traditional starter Saturday against the Angels, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

LeBlanc has been following an opener of late but will start the first inning in this contest. This means different things in different fantasy formats, but in most leagues it's a bad thing, as he is less likely to go deep enough to qualify for a win and is more likely to face the Angels' best hitters three times instead of twice.

Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: May not follow opener Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc may work as a traditional starting pitcher Saturday against the Angels, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

This isn't necessarily a great thing for fantasy purposes, as it makes it less likely LeBlanc goes deep enough to qualify for a win and would mean he faces the top of the Angels' order in the first inning. Nothing has been confirmed yet, however.

Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Set to work as primary pitcher Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Scott Servais said LeBlanc would likely continue to work as a primary pitcher in the lefty's next scheduled turn through the rotation Saturday against the Angels, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

LeBlanc's last seven outings have come behind an opener, with the southpaw posting a 2.97 ERA and 1.09 WHIP across 39.1 innings. Those numbers are far better than what he had posted in his six traditional starters earlier this season (6.99 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 28.1 innings), so expect Servais to continue leaning on LeBlanc as a primary pitcher so long as the arrangement yields favorable results.

Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Effective again as primary pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc worked 6.1 innings against Oakland on Sunday, allowing one run on three hits and two walks while striking out two. He did not factor into the decision.

Opener Matt Carasiti was roughed up for five runs (four earned) while managing to record only one out, leaving LeBlanc to try to stem the tide and avert a blowout. He performed admirably, allowing a single to the first batter he faced before retiring the next two hitters to get out of the inning. He proceeded to give up a home run to Marcus Semien leading off the second inning but settled in and blanked Oakland over the remainder of his appearance. LeBlanc seems to have found his niche as a primary pitcher; over seven appearances in this role, he has gone 3-0 while posting a 3.00 ERA and 27:9 K:BB in 39 innings.

July 7, 2019 02:40 PM
Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Working behind opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc will operate as the Mariners' primary pitcher in Sunday's game against the Athletics.

Right-hander Matt Carasiti is expected to work the first inning before turning the game over to LeBlanc, who has been far more effective out of the bullpen rather than a traditional starter this season. Over his six outings as a primary pitcher, LeBlanc has posted a 3.31 ERA and has limited opponents to a .299 wOBA across 32.2 innings.

July 3, 2019 03:40 AM
Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Allows one run in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc completed 4.2 innings against the Cardinals on Tuesday, giving up one run on four hits and two walks while striking out one. He did not factor into the decision.

In his sixth consecutive outing as a primary pitcher following an opener, LeBlanc was once again effective, allowing only one run on a solo shot by Jose Martinez in the sixth inning. Aside from a six-run blowup against Oakland in mid-June, LeBlanc has been very effective as a primary pitcher, allowing only six runs in 30 innings. It stands to reason that he'll continue in the non-traditional relief role moving forward, with his next appearance scheduled for Sunday at home against Oakland.

Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Serving as primary pitcher Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc will serve as the primary pitcher behind opener Matt Carasiti in Tuesday's interleague series opener against the Cardinals.

The veteran southpaw will fill a role in which he's been successful several times this season. LeBlanc will actually be pitching on five days' rest, as he most recently fired five solid innings against the Brewers last Wednesday. LeBlanc has been markedly better in a relief capacity this season, generating a 3.54 ERA and .294 wOBA across 28 frames.

June 28, 2019 02:00 AM
Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Notches fifth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc (5-2) picked up the win Wednesday after holding the Brewers to two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out six over five innings.

LeBlanc replaced opener Matt Carasiti in the second inning and retired his first three batters with ease. The 34-year-old remained sharp through four frames, but the Brewers rallied with solo homers from Mike Moustakas and Ben Gamel in the sixth. Luckily, those runs were Milwaukee's last. LeBlanc has mostly excelled in the primary pitcher role behind an opener and will look to continue improving his 5.27 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 47:13 K:BB.

June 26, 2019 03:32 PM
Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Working as primary pitcher again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc is expected to pitch the bulk of the innings in relief Wednesday behind opener Matt Carasiti in the Mariners' game against the Brewers, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

LeBlanc has been deployed as a primary pitcher in each of his last four turns, posting a 3.52 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 18:4 K:BB in 23 innings over that stretch. Expect the Mariners to continue to use LeBlanc behind an opener so long as the arrangement continues to yield favorable results.

June 21, 2019 04:12 AM
Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Earns fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc pitched 6.1 scoreless innings and took the win against Baltimore on Thursday, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out seven.

LeBlanc once again worked behind an opener but experienced drastically different results in comparison to his previous appearance, when he gave up six runs in 2.2 innings against Oakland. This time out, LeBlanc entered with a two-run deficit but shut down the Orioles for 6.1 innings to pick up the victory. He did so by regularly getting ahead of hitters, throwing first-pitch strikes to 19 of 24 batters. Despite the strong outing, LeBlanc still owns an unappealing 5.44 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 51.1 innings this season. He'll try to improve upon those numbers when he heads to Milwaukee on Wednesday in his next scheduled appearance.

June 20, 2019 08:28 PM
Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Working behind opener Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc will serve as the primary pitcher for Thursday's game against the Orioles, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

LeBlanc has followed an opener in each of his past three trips to the mound, compiling a 4.86 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 11:2 K:BB in those outings. While the results haven't been stellar, they're markedly better than the 6.99 ERA and 1.66 WHIP he posted through his first six starts, so the Mariners will continue to deploy him behind an opener for the time being. The team has yet to announce who will open Thursday's game.

June 16, 2019 07:08 AM
Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Hit hard as primary pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 11-2 loss to the A's, coughing up six runs on eight hits over 2.2 innings of relief while striking out one.

Gerson Bautista dug an early hole for Seattle as the opener, saving LeBlanc from his third loss of the season, but the veteran southpaw wasn't any more effective. He now carries a 6.20 ERA and 34:10 K:BB through 45 innings, and if he stays on schedule his next outing -- whether as the starter or the primary, bulk-inning reliever -- should come Thursday, at home against the Orioles.

June 15, 2019 11:00 AM
Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Pitching behind opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc is expected to serve as the Mariners' primary pitcher behind opener Gerson Bautista in Saturday's game against the Athletics, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

After LeBlanc posted a 6.99 ERA and 1.66 WHIP while operating as a traditional starter in his first six outings of 2019, the Mariners elected to experiment with him out of the bullpen through his subsequent two turns through the rotation. The switch has paid major dividends thus far, with LeBlanc limiting a pair of tough opponents -- the Astros and Angels -- to three combined runs over 14 innings while scattering nine hits and two walks. Expect the Mariners to continue using LeBlanc behind an opener so long as the arrangement delivers strong results.

June 10, 2019 03:20 PM
Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Misses plenty of bats in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc (3-2) recorded eight strikeouts and allowed two earned runs on six hits and a walk over six innings in a win over the Angels on Sunday.

For the second time in as many outings, LeBlanc slotted in behind an opener and thrived under the circumstances. The veteran southpaw's one major blemish was the solo home run he yielded to Tommy La Stella in the third inning, but he was otherwise efficient while throwing 64 of 98 pitches for strikes. LeBlanc has gotten June off to a stellar start, as he's now allowed just three earned runs over 14 innings in two appearances as a bulk reliever. Given the success he's experienced in that role, it's certainly conceivable he's deployed in the same fashion during his next scheduled turn, slated for either next Friday or Saturday against the Athletics.

June 9, 2019 02:16 AM
Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Could operate behind opener Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc, who'd been slated to make a conventional start Sunday against the Angels, could instead enter the game as a bulk reliever after an opener, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Manager Scott Servais made the comments prior to Saturday night's game against the Angels, with the Mariners skipper adding that he'd hold off on a decision until seeing how much work his relievers would have to put in during the contest. Despite a blowout 12-3 loss, Servais ultimately deployed just Tayler Scott and Jesse Biddle behind the struggling Yusei Kikuchi, so it's likely the possibility of utilizing an opener remains high. LeBlanc performed sensationally under such a scenario last Monday against the Astros, firing eight innings of three-hit, one-run ball as a long reliever behind opener Corey Gearrin.

June 6, 2019 04:08 PM
Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Next start coming Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc will make his next start Sunday against the Angels, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Yusei Kikuchi is set to rejoin the rotation Saturday after having his previous start skipped for maintenance purposes, pushing LeBlanc's next scheduled start back by a day. LeBlanc followed an opener in his previous trip to the mound and responded by firing eight strong innings as the primary pitcher, so there's a chance he's deployed in the same fashion again Sunday.

June 4, 2019 01:16 AM
Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Throws eight innings against Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc tossed eight innings as the primary pitcher against the Astros on Monday, giving up one earned run on three hits in a no-decision as the Mariners fell 4-2. He struck out two and walked one.

Following up opener Cory Gearrin after one inning, LeBlanc turned in a sterling effort, finishing off the game on an efficient 89 pitches while yielding just three hits. Unfortunately, Gearrin got tagged for three earned in the first inning, so the strong outing didn't put LeBlanc in line for a win. Still, it was an encouraging performance, as LeBlanc carried a 6.99 ERA coming into the matchup. He lowered that to 5.70 to go along with a 1.40 WHIP ahead of his next start, which is scheduled for Saturday on the road against the Angels.

June 2, 2019 08:36 PM
Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Will follow opener Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc will enter the game following a reliever Monday against Houston, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

LeBlanc was slated to start against the Astros' Monday, but the team will employ an opener in the hopes of giving him a smooth start to his appearance. He's struggled mightily this season, posting a 7.94 ERA and 7.36 ERA respectively the first and second time through opposing lineups. The opener for the contest has not yet been announced.

Mariners' Wade LeBlanc: Surrenders three earned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeBlanc allowed three earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out five across five innings Wednesday against the Rangers. He did not factor into the decision.

The Rangers got to LeBlanc for all three of their runs in the first inning. However, he settled in from there, allowing only two singles across his remaining four frames of work. This was a welcomed outing for LeBlanc as his season had been littered with poor starts, and even after this respectable performance he has a 6.99 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 28.1 innings for the season. He'll look to build off this effort in his next start, currently scheduled for Monday against Houston.
