Trammell is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against Cleveland.
The outfielder will get his first day off since being recalled to the big leagues June 1. Dillon Thomas will start in center field and bat eighth.
Trammell went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in a loss to the Tigers on Tuesday.
Trammell's eighth-inning two-bagger plated the final run of the night for either club and extended what has been an impressive stretch of hitting for the young outfielder since his return from Triple-A Tacoma. Trammell owns a .280/.333/.520 slash line with three doubles, one home run, three RBI, two walks and five runs in the 27 plate appearances he's logged during his second big-league stint, one in which he appears exponentially more comfortable at the plate than he did during his initial 94-plate-appearance tenure with the Mariners to open the campaign.
Trammell went 2-for-3 with two doubles and a run in a loss to the Angels on Friday.
The young outfielder rediscovered his stroke in sensational fashion once he was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on May 13, slashing .384/.413/.726 across 80 plate appearances for the Rainiers. That momentum appears to have carried over to his return to the big-league level, as he's hit safely in three of his first four games back with the Mariners while going 4-for-13 with Friday's pair of two-baggers, a solo homer, a walk and three runs. Trammell's fast start helps secure his grasp on the starting left field job for the time being.
Trammell went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk as Seattle fell 12-6 to Oakland on Tuesday.
Trammell took starter Chris Bassitt 426-feet deep to right center in the fourth to extend Seattle's lead to 4-1 but the bullpen ended up blowing the lead. This was Trammell's first game since May 9 as injuries have paved the way to more playing time for the young outfielder.
The Mariners recalled Trammell from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.
The outfielder fills one of the roster vacancies left by Kyle Lewis (knee) and Robert Dugger (optioned to Triple-A). In Triple-A, Trammell was unrecognizable from his early season, big-league self, hitting .384 with six homers and 19 RBI in 73 at-bats. Obviously MLB is a different animal, but perhaps the 23-year-old will be a bigger contributor for the Mariners after regaining his confidence in Tacoma.
Trammell, who was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on May 13, is slashing .462/.465/.872 with four doubles, four home runs and 15 RBI across his first 43 plate appearances with the Rainiers.
Following a dismal stint at the big-league level during which he posted a .157 average and .592 OPS in 27 games, Trammell has taken his frustrations out on Triple-A arms in sensational fashion. The 23-year-old's current stretch is his best at the plate of any of his professional stops, and while he's naturally bound to cool off some, it appears Trammell is going to make a push for a return to the Mariners with his bat. Notably, Jarred Kelenic, who essentially swapped spots with Trammell on the major-league roster, is struggling in a manner very similar to the latter against big-league pitching early, posting an anemic .139/.205/.278 slash line in his first 39 plate appearances.
Mariners manager Scott Servais said after Wednesday's 7-1 loss to the Dodgers that Trammell will be optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
As anticipated, Trammell will be losing out on a spot on the active roster with top prospect Jarred Kelenic on track to receive a call-up prior to Thursday's game against Cleveland. Trammell opened the season as a regular starter in the Seattle outfield, but he ended up falling into a timeshare in left field with Sam Haggerty once Kyle Lewis was reinstated from the IL in late April. Trammell slashed .157/.255/.337 with four home runs, two stolen bases and a 43.2 percent strikeout rate in 95 plate appearances over his first 27 games in the big leagues.
Trammell, who's slashing .157/.255/.337 across 95 plate appearances, is likely to lose his big-league roster spot to Jarred Kelenic when the Mariners make his expected promotion from Triple-A Tacoma official Thursday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.
Trammell is a highly regarded prospect in his own right, albeit not quite on the level of Kelenic, who's fully expected to star at the big-league level quickly. Trammell occupies the left field spot that Kelenic is expected to slide into, and Kramer conveys that it seems probable he swaps places with the latter at Triple-A Tacoma in order to continue getting at-bats and hopefully snap out of his early-season funk.
Trammell is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.
The lefty-hitting Trammell will unsurprisingly hit the bench with southpaw John Means on the mound, but the young outfielder's opportunities against right-handed pitching could soon be coming to an end, too. He was held out of the lineup in two of the last three games in which Seattle opposed righties, which opened up a pair of starts for Sam Haggerty. Given that Trammell is hitting .156 with a 43.8 percent strikeout rate in his first stint in the majors, it wouldn't be surprising if a demotion to Triple-A Tacoma comes in the near future.
Trammell is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Orioles.
After going 3-for-28 with 16 strikeouts in his past 10 games, Trammell will take a seat Tuesday. Sam Haggerty will start in left field and bat ninth for the Mariners.
Trammell is starting in left field and will bat ninth Monday night against the Orioles.
Trammell was initially left out of Seattle's starting nine, but the team issued an update prior to first pitch. He's just 3-for-20 with a homer and two RBI in his last seven contests.
Trammell isn't in Monday's lineup against the Orioles.
Trammell will be out of the lineup for a second straight game after he went 1-for-12 with a home run, two runs, two walks, seven strikeouts and a stolen base across his last five contests. Sam Haggerty will take over in left field while Dylan Moore starts at second base.
Trammell walked in his only plate appearance Sunday and ended up successfully stealing his second base of the season in a 2-0 win over the Angels.
Trammell entered the game in the eighth inning as a pinch hitter for Jose Marmolejos and battled for eight pitches before finally drawing a walk. He ended up taking second base but was stranded after Dylan Moore struck out to end the inning. The 23-year-old has struggled mightily so far during his rookie season, slashing .162/.271/.351 with four home runs, 11 RBI, 10 runs scored and a 10:37 BB:K.
Trammell is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels.
Trammell will sit for the second time in three games while manager Scott Servais trots out a starting outfield of Kyle Lewis, Sam Haggerty and Jose Marmolejos. Mitch Haniger -- who is serving as a designated hitter Sunday -- will typically occupy one of the corner-outfield spots while Lewis mans center, so Trammell looks like he'll be vying for time at the remaining corner spot with Marmolejos, Haggerty and Dylan Moore for any given game. After striking out in all four of his at-bats Saturday, Trammell is now sitting on a .162/.262/.351 slash line for the season. He could be in danger of a demotion when the minor-league season gets underway during the upcoming week.
Trammell will not start Friday's game against the Angels.
Even with Kyle Lewis back from his knee injury, Trammell has remained in a fairly regular role. Friday marks Lewis' 10th game back on the roster, with Trammell sitting for just the third time in that stretch. Lewis will be the center fielder Friday, with Sam Haggerty starting in left.
Trammell went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Astros.
Trammell accounted for all of the scoring in Seattle's 1-0 victory with his third-inning homer off Luis Garcia. It may not be enough to salvage his roster spot. The 23-year-old is still batting .157 with a .620 OPS after Thursday's homer, and with the minor-league season set to begin soon, it would not be a surprise to see Trammell head back to the farm for continued development.
Trammell is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.
With Seattle back at full strength in the outfield following Kyle Lewis' recent return from the injured list, Trammell looks to be less of an everyday player and more of a strong-side platoon man in the corner outfield. The lefty-hitting Trammell will sit for the second time in the series against a left-handed pitcher with southpaw Eduardo Rodriguez on the mound for Boston. Meanwhile, Sam Haggerty will be rewarded with a start in place of Trammell after he slugged a home run and stole a base as part of a three-hit performance Saturday.
Trammell is out of the lineup Friday at Boston.
Trammell started the past four games but will take a seat Friday with lefty Martin Perez starting for the Red Sox. Sam Haggerty will operate in left field and bat eighth for Seattle.
Trammell went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, two RBI and a run scored in Monday's 4-3 win over the Dodgers.
Trammell took Dustin May deep to center field in the second to extend the Mariners' lead to 3-0. He later roped an RBI double down the right-field line in the fourth to give his team a 4-2 cushion. Monday was only his second multi-hit performance of the season, and it upped Trammell's slash line to .184/.298/.408 with three home runs, nine RBI and eight runs scored. The 23-year-old rookie is still having some growing pains at the plate with 23 strikeouts through his first 49 at-bats of the season.
Trammell isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Astros.
Trammell has gone 1-for-15 with a walk, one stolen base and six strikeouts in the last five games. Jose Marmolejos will start in left field while Sam Haggerty takes over in center field Saturday.
