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.
Trammell went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Sunday's 8-6 win over the Twins.
Trammell made a big contribution to the Mariners' comeback, hitting his blast off Twins starter Matt Shoemaker in the sixth inning to cut the deficit to two runs. The homer was his second of the year, and he's added seven RBI, six runs scored and seven walks in eight games. The rookie outfielder sports a poor .185/.353/.444 slash line, in part due to 16 strikeouts in 34 plate appearances.
Trammell, who hit his first major-league home run Saturday against the Twins, has partly countered his early propensity for strikeouts with a 24.1 percent walk rate in 29 plate appearances.
In addition to his solo homer Saturday, Trammell also drew his seventh walk of the season, which helped push his on-base percentage to a solid .345 entering Sunday's action. The rookie has struck out 14 times over his first 29 plate appearances as well, however, which has been a major factor in his .136 average. Trammell's current 48.3 percent strikeout rate and 36.4 percent contact rate will naturally both normalize to a degree over time considering he demonstrated a solid eye at the plate during his minor-league career by posting strikeout rates of 22.8 percent or lower in six of seven stops.
Trammell isn't starting Monday's game against the White Sox.
Trammell will get a day off after he went 1-for-10 with two runs, two RBI, three walks and six strikeouts in the first three games of the season. Sam Haggerty will take over in center field Monday, batting eighth.
Trammell went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in a win over the Giants on Saturday, with the two-bagger serving as his first major-league hit.
The promising 23-year-old earned an Opening Day roster spot with a strong Cactus League body of work both in the field and at the plate, but he'd gone 0-for-6 with a pair of walks and a run in his first two games before Saturday's double. Trammell is currently manning center field while Kyle Lewis recovers from a knee injury, and if he proves productive during his stint, he could conceivably take the everyday left-field job from Jake Fraley, which he already appeared on track to do this spring.
Manager Scott Servais confirmed Wednesday that Trammell will serve as the Mariners' Opening Day center fielder, Lauren Smith of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Servias said that Kyle Lewis (knee) will be out for at least "a couple of weeks" to begin the season, so Trammell should be the Mariners' primary option in center until at least mid-April. Once Lewis returns, Trammell should still have a path to an everyday role in left field, provided he performs well enough early on during the season to warrant regular at-bats. Trammell pushed his way on to the Opening Day roster by slashing .311/.392/.644 with three home runs and two stolen bases in the Cactus League, but his 17 strikeouts in 45 spring at-bats signal that he could be a major batting-average risk once his BABIP normalizes.
Manager Scott Servais announced Saturday that Trammell made Seattle's Opening Day roster and is poised to start in left field, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The 23-year-old performed well during spring training and is expected to start in left field or center field, depending on the health of Kyle Lewis (knee). Trammell is one of the Mariners' top prospects and will make the jump to the majors without playing at the Triple-A level. He had a .234/.340/.349 slash line with 10 homers and 20 stolen bases in 126 games at Double-A in 2019.
Trammell started in center field in Wednesday's Cactus League loss to the Cubs and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a walk.
The productive outing pushed Trammell's spring average to a solid .289, while the round tripper was his second in exhibition play. Trammell has handled the most pressure-packed portion of spring well, as he's gone 4-for-12 with a double, Wednesday's homer, two RBI, three walks and three runs over his last four Cactus League contests as he continues pushing for the starting job in left field.
Trammell went 1-for-2 with a double and a walk in a Cactus League loss to the Diamondbacks on Monday, pushing his average to .292 (7-for-24) across 11 spring games.
Trammell hit leadoff and played right field Monday, but his strong play is drawing him closer to winning the starting job in left field away from Jake Fraley. Fraley's extended spring struggles (.136 average) have done him no favors, while Trammell has yet to go two consecutive games without a hit.
