Mariners' Shed Long: Rakes out of leadoff spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a double, a walk and two runs in a win over the Athletics on Friday.

Long continued his season-ending hot streak at the plate and ultimately crossed the plate with the winning run on J.P. Crawford's double. Long is hitting .316 in September following what was his ninth multi-hit effort of the month, and his well-balanced contributions during that stretch partly consist of 10 extra-base hits (five doubles, one triple, four home runs) and 10 RBI.

Mariners' Shed Long: First big-league three-bagger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long went 2-for-4 with a triple and a run in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday.

Long's September tear continued in fine fashion, as the rookie pushed his average during the month to .422 (19-for-45), a figure partly comprised of eight extra-base hits. Long started at second base in place of Dee Gordon on Sunday, with the keystone projected as his long-term position despite the fact he's put in time in the outfield recently as well.

Mariners' Shed Long: Another homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long went 3-for-4 with three runs scored, a walk, a double and a solo home run against the Orioles on Saturday.

Long has been productive of late, collecting multiple hits in seven of his last eight contests. In only 35 games played this season, he has managed five home runs, three stolen bases and 18 runs scored.

Mariners' Shed Long: Keeps hitting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Pirates.

Long delivered a bases-loaded single in the second inning to record his third multi-RBI performance in his last six starts. He's also in the midst of a seven-game hitting streak, six of which have been multi-hit efforts. The 24-year-old is making a nice impression through 33 games in the big-leagues, hitting .282 while also smacking four home runs and swiping three bases.

Mariners' Shed Long: Records another multi-hit game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and RBI single in a 6-0 victory against the Pirates on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old is on a five-game hitting streak, and in all five contests, he has two hits. In two of the last three games, he has a home run, and he's recorded five RBI in the past four contests. It's a small sample, but he's one of the hottest hitters going. Long is batting .266 with 12 extra-base hits, including four homers, 11 RBI, 14 runs and three stolen bases in 109 at-bats this season.

Mariners' Shed Long: Slugs third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in an extra-inning win over the White Sox on Saturday.

Long started in left field and operated out of the leadoff spot, lending some key run support to a sharp Felix Hernandez with a fifth-inning solo shot that snapped a scoreless tie. The rookie has churned out three consecutive two-hit efforts and started four straight games overall.

Mariners' Shed Long: Provides two-run single
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long went 2-for-4 with a two-RBI single in Friday's 9-7 loss to the White Sox.

Long plated both Omar Narvaez and Mallex Smith with the fourth-inning single. Long was later lifted for a pinch hitter in the eighth. The 24-year-old is up to 10 RBI and a .247/.327/.398 slash line in 97 at-bats this year, having hit safely in five of his last six starts.

Mariners' Shed Long: Sole source of offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a loss to the Astros on Sunday.

The 21-1 walloping the Mariners endured Sunday represented the largest margin of defeat in franchise history. Therefore, Long's fourth-inning round tripper, while irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, at least prevented the ignominy of a shutout. It was the rookie's second homer at the big-league level overall, and he's now hit safely in each of the three starts he's logged since his return to the Mariners earlier in the month.

Mariners' Shed Long: Could see time in outfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long, who's been limited to pinch hitting since being called up from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday, will get into the starting lineup soon and could see time in left field, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Long's primary position is second base, but veteran Dee Gordon continues to hold down the fort at the keystone and the Mariners also have multiple options to give him an occasional breather. Therefore, the outfield would represent an alternate path into the starting nine if manager Scott Servais wants to get the rookie some valuable game reps. Despite the fact he's only made a pair of pinch-hit appearances thus far, Long is still keeping busy, as he's been engaged in extensive pregame work -- he was able to play in only four games at Triple-A Tacoma following a finger injury, prior to getting the call back to the big leagues.

September 3, 2019 01:40 PM
Mariners' Shed Long: Called up by Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long was called up by the Mariners on Tuesday.

Long appeared in the first 19 games of his big-league career earlier in the season, posting a modest .232/.329/.377 slash line. He could earn a fair number of starts down the stretch as the Mariners look to audition their young players for next season.

Mariners' Shed Long: September promotion not certain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long, who's gone 2-for-13 with a solo home run in his three games since returning to action at Triple-A Tacoma following a finger injury, is not guaranteed to be called up once the Rainiers' season ends, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Long already has a 19-game major-league tour of duty under his belt this season, a stint during which he slashed .232/.329/.377 with seven doubles, one home run, five RBI, 10 walks, three stolen bases and nine runs. The 24-year-old has been limited to 56 minor-league games overall in 2019 due to injuries, and the Mariners may opt to let him rest up in anticipation of competing for a roster spot in spring training.

Mariners' Shed Long: Healthy at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long (finger) was activated from the minor-league injured list at Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.

Long spent some time with the Mariners earlier in the season, hitting .232/.329/.377 in 19 games. He's been out with a broken finger since mid-July but is a candidate for a September callup now that he's healthy.

Mariners' Shed Long: Working out in Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long (finger) has moved his rehab to Triple-A Tacoma, Tacoma Rainiers broadcaster Mike Curto reports.

Long had been rehabbing in Arizona from a broken finger, and while he's not active just yet, this is a step forward for the 24-year-old. He's aiming for a weekend return from the injured list if everything goes according to plan.

August 19, 2019 08:12 PM
Mariners' Shed Long: Still rehabbing in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long (finger) continues to rehab at Arizona and remains without a timetable for his return, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Long is still on the mend from a fractured finger, and the issue has limited his baseball activities while in Arizona. He's been out since June 12 and remains without a clear timetable for his return to Triple-A.

Mariners' Shed Long: Likely out through mid-August
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long is still recovering from a fractured finger on his right hand and is expected to miss a few more weeks of action at Triple-A Tacoma, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

The Mariners demoted Long to Triple-A in mid-June, but he would likely have been summoned back to the big leagues already if not for missing time at Tacoma due to a shoulder injury in addition to the fractured finger. Long, who suffered the latter injury back on July 11, looks like he'll remain sidelined until around mid-August while recovering from the injury. Assuming Long incurs no setbacks along the way, he should get the call back to the Mariners when rosters expand in September, if not sooner.

Mariners' Shed Long: Back on minor-league IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long injured his right hand Friday and was placed on the 7-day injured list with Triple-A Tacoma, Rainiers broadcaster Mike Curto reports.

This is a brutal break for Long, as he was just activated from the IL on Thursday after missing time with a shoulder injury. It is unclear how serious the hand injury is.

Mariners' Shed Long: Back in action with Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long (shoulder) went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts in his first game back with Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday.

He was pulled after four innings, but there has been no word of a setback with his left shoulder. Thus it seems the club was simply easing him back into action -- Long did not play in any rehab games at the lower levels to prepare for a return. The 23-year-old hasn't done much of note during his major-league stints this year, but he will likely get another chance to prove himself after the trade deadline.

Mariners' Shed Long: Shoulder issue resurfaces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long was placed on the minor-league injured list with left shoulder soreness, Rainiers broadcaster Mike Curto reports.

Long dealt with a shoulder issue last week but returned to action for Triple-A Tacoma over the past few games, though he apparently never fully recovered from the injury. The 23-year-old isn't expected to face a significant absence and could return after the All-star break July 12.

June 29, 2019 05:44 PM
Mariners' Shed Long: Hot since returning to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long is 6-for-8 with two RBI, a walk and two runs in two games for Triple-A Tacoma since returning from a shoulder injury.

The promising infielder's productive pair of efforts pushed his batting average over the last 10 games to an impressive .333. Long missed three contests overall with his shoulder issue, which clearly wasn't overly serious. He put together a solid initial major-league stint earlier this season, and he's generated a .293/.363./489 line over 46 games with the Rainiers as well.

Mariners' Shed Long: Dealing with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Long is dealing with a shoulder injury, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

This helps explain why Long hasn't played for Triple-A Tacoma since Saturday. The second baseman apparently suffered the injury while diving. He should be considered day-to-day.
