Mariners' Taylor Motter: Continues struggling Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motter was hitless in four at-bats in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Athletics. He's now hitting just .143 over 22 September plate appearances.

The 28-year-old saw a three-game hitting streak snapped, a stretch in which he'd compiled his only hits -- all singles -- for September. The lack of success has also led to a .182 OBP and .143 slugging percentage for the month. Motter's struggles extend back to the beginning of his current big-league stint, as he's slashed just .179/.200/.205 over 40 plate appearances since returning from Triple-A Tacoma on Aug. 20. He's been a bit on the unlucky side, however, as he also carries a .219 BABIP over that span.

Mariners' Taylor Motter: Productive as in-game replacement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motter entered Wednesday's 9-6 win over the Braves as a pinch runner in the third inning and went 2-for-3 with a two-run single, a double and two runs.

Motter took over for Robinson Cano after the latter felt hamstring tightness and produced his first multi-hit effort since June 20 in the process. The utility man extraordinaire was just recalled from Triple-A Tacoma, where he'd dominated with a .350 average and seven home runs over 25 games. Motter figures to see occasional starts at various positions, with a string of them in Cano's stead a real possibility in the short term.

Mariners' Taylor Motter: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motter was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

He'll take the roster spot of Danny Espinosa, who was placed on release waivers in a corresponding move. Motter spent some time with the Mariners earlier in the season, slashing .204/.272/.355 with seven homers and nine stolen bases in 70 games before being sent back to the minors. Since his demotion, the 27-year-old hit .350 with seven homers and six stolen bases in 25 games with Tacoma. He'll return to his role as a utility player for the big club.

Mariners' Taylor Motter: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motter was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.

Motter made a start at first base over the weekend with Danny Valencia (wrist) sidelined, but he'll now head down to Tacoma in an attempt to get back on track at the plate. The 27-year-old hit just .206 in June and has earned only eight at-bats during the month of July. For the season, Motter is batting .204 with seven home runs and 23 RBI. A corresponding move is expected to be made later Monday.

Mariners' Taylor Motter: Gets surprise start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motter will start at first base and bat eighth Saturday in place of the injured Danny Valencia (wrist).

It will be his first start in three games, though there could be more on the horizon if Valencia's injury is considered serious. Motter hasn't exactly made a strong case for more playing time, as the 27-year-old is hitting just .207 heading into the weekend, though he has blasted seven home runs.
