Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Big-league success still elusive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After recording a single in each of the first three games of his second big-league stint, Kelenic is 0-for-14 over his last four contests.

Kelenic went right back to looking the part of prized prospect when he received a demotion to Triple-A Tacoma in early June, posting a .333/.419/.678 slash line with eight doubles, a triple and seven home runs over his last 22 games with the Rainiers before a promotion July 17. However, Kelenic is still getting fooled nearly half the time against big-league pitching, as he sports a massive 48.1 percent strikeout rate across the 27 plate appearances he's logged over his first seven contests back. It's a small sample, but his plate discipline actually appears to have regressed -- Kelenic went down on strikes at a still-elevated-but-more-acceptable 28.3 percent clip over his first 92 big-league plate appearances earlier in the season.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Singles in majors return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic, who was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma earlier in the day, went 1-for-4 with a single in a win over the Angels on Friday.

The 22-year-old snapped what had been 0-for-42 skid at the big-league level that dated back to his initial stint with the Mariners this season. Kelenic has looked like a completely different hitter at the Triple-A level compared to the overmatched rookie he's often come across as when facing big-league arms, but perhaps Friday's hit will kickstart his current tenure with Seattle.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic is starting in center field and batting eighth Friday against the Angels.

The Mariners won't wait to insert Kelenic into the starting lineup after recalling him earlier Friday. While the 22-year-old struggled to a .096/.185/.193 slash line during his initial stint with the big club, he hit .306/.386/.622 with seven long balls in his 24 games back in Tacoma. Kelenic seems likely to get everyday playing time.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Officially recalled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners recalled Kelenic from Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.

Kelenic's .096/.185/.193 line from his 23-game debut earlier in the season serves as a useful reminder of the significant risk that comes with all prospects, even highly touted ones. That's not nearly a long enough stretch that it should knock too much of the shine off one of the game's brightest young talents, however. The 22-year-old outfielder hit .306/.386/.622 with seven homers in 24 games following his early-June demotion back to Tacoma, setting him up to meet expectations this time around. Perhaps most significantly, he struck out in just 14.9 percent of his plate appearances over that time, well below the 28.3 percent strikeout rate he posted in his first taste of the big leagues.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Call-up coming Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic will be recalled by the Mariners on Friday, Daniel Kramer of reports.

There was speculation that Kelenic's call-up could be coming in the near future since he didn't report to Triple-A Tacoma following the Futures Game, and general manager Jerry Dipoto confirmed the news Thursday. Although the 21-year-old had a disappointing .096/.185/.193 slash line in 23 major-league games earlier in the year, he's been dominant in the minors and slashed .360/.429/.680 with a home run, five doubles, five RBI and four runs in six Triple-A games in July. Kelenic mainly hit at the top of the order in his first big-league stint, and he should see plenty of playing time in Seattle's outfield going forward.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Likely to be called up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic likely will be called up by the Mariners on Friday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Kelenic was sent down in early June after he hit .096 with two homers, seven runs, six RBI and three stolen bases in 23 games. However, he's been hot across six minor-league games in July, as he's slashed .360/.429/.680 with a home run, five doubles, five RBI and four runs during that time. The 21-year-old appeared in the Futures Game during the All-Star break and hasn't reported back to Triple-A Tacoma, so he could rejoin the big-league club for the team's road trip that begins Friday against the Angels. Although Kelenic had a disappointing start to his major-league career earlier in the season, he should see plenty of time in the Mariners' outfield once he's officially back on the roster.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: On July tear in Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic owns a .360/.429/.680 slash line with five doubles, one home run, three walks, five RBI and four runs across 28 plate appearances in his first six July games at Triple-A Tacoma.

Kelenic also went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs June 29, so he's been on an extended stretch of success at the plate. It appears to be mission accomplished with respect to Kelenic regaining his confidence and stroke with the Rainiers after a tough initial major-league stint, so a return to the Mariners could be imminent.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Continues hitting well at Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic is slashing .310/.400/.619 with two doubles, a triple, three home runs, 12 RBI, six walks, two stolen bases and 12 runs over the 50 plate appearances across his last 10 games at Triple-A Tacoma.

The elite prospect was sent back to Tacoma to regain his confidence after a rough initial landing at the big-league level, and he's certainly putting his time with the Rainiers to good use. In addition to his impressive array of numbers, Kelenic also has a 12.0 percent walk rate and 14.0 percent strikeout rate during that 10-game sample, significant improvements on the respective 8.7 percent and 28.3 percent figures he produced in those categories during his time with the Mariners.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Heating up at Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic is 3-for-8 with a pair of solo home runs, a walk, two stolen bases and four runs over his last two games for Triple-A Tacoma.

Kelenic's second tour of duty with the Rainiers essentially picked up where his forgettable first major-league tenure left off -- namely, with plenty of swing-and-misses and an overall lack of production. However, after going 0-for-8 with four strikeouts in his first two games back in the minors, Kelenic seems to be rediscovering the stroke he displayed earlier in the season with Tacoma. The Mariners are still likely committed to an extended stint at the Triple-A level for their prized prospect, considering how evident his need for additional seasoning was during his time with the big-league club.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: First hit since return to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic went 1-for-4 with a two-run double and a run in Triple-A Tacoma's win over Sacramento on Friday.

Kelenic had gone 0-for-8 with an RBI and four strikeouts in his first two games with the Rainiers, so Friday's two-bagger represented his first hit since his demotion Monday. The elite prospect will look to gain additional seasoning against Triple-A arms before a return to the majors is considered after he struggled to a .096/.185/.193 slash line over 92 plate appearances with the Mariners in his first taste of the majors.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Optioned to Triple-A Tacoma
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.

Kelenic was one of the most hyped prospects in the league over the offseason, leading to widespread annoyance at the Mariners' decision to keep him in the minors until mid-May. He'll head back to the minors to sort things out after hitting .096/.185/.193 through 23 games. A .109 BABIP can be blamed for some of his struggles, but it's not as if producing numbers in line with his .180 xBA and .322 xSLG would count as meeting expectations. Kelenic's 28.3 percent strikeout rate was poor but not terrible, but he simply didn't hit the ball very hard when he did make contact, producing just a 5.3 percent barrel rate. Kelenic is still only 21 years old, so there's plenty of time for him to get back on track.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic is not in Sunday's starting lineup against the Angels.

Kelenic is currently hitless in his last 37 at-bats dating back to May 26, so he'll be given a day to reset during Sunday's series finale. Taylor Trammell will slide to center field Sunday, with Donovan Walton moving from his usual position at second base to left field.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Sits Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic is not starting Wednesday's game against the Athletics.

The rookie will sit with lefty Sean Manaea on the hill for the Athletics. It's worth wondering whether Kelenic, who's hitting .111 overall since being called up and is mired in an 0-for-26 over his last seven games, will be sent back down to Triple-A Tacoma at some point to regain his confidence. Teammate Taylor Trammell, who'll start in center field Wednesday, endured a similarly difficult start to the season with the big-league club before rediscovering his stroke with the Rainiers prior to his recent majors return.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Notches third steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic went 0-for-3 with a pair of walks, a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's 6-5 extra-inning win over Oakland.

While the rookie outfielder's skid stretched to 0-for-22, he was able to get on base multiple times for the first time since May 25. Kelenic has a poor .118/.211/.235 slash line with two home runs, six RBI, six runs scored and three stolen bases through 76 plate appearances. This is likely just a set of growing pains for the 21-year-old as he adjusts to major-league pitching.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Complementary impact in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic went 0-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base and a run in a win over the Rangers on Friday.

Kelenic found a way to make an impact out of the leadoff spot despite going hitless, reaching safely for the third time in the last five games. The prized prospect has gotten a mostly rude introduction to the big leagues after dominating Triple-A arms, slashing just .138/.206/.276 across 63 plate appearances, although four of his eight hits have at least gone for extra bases (two doubles, two home runs).

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Clocks second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run Monday in a 4-2 win over the Athletics.

Back in the starting nine Monday after sitting out Sunday's loss to the Padres amid a 2-for-28 slide at the plate, Kelenic was able to get on track in the fifth inning, when he took Frankie Montas deep to right field to give Seattle a 4-1 lead. The elite prospect is hitting just .146 to begin his career, but a strong 17.8 percent strikeout rate and an abnormally low .129 BABIP offer plenty of hope that better days are ahead for the 21-year-old.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Receives first day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

Seattle will give the 21-year-old outfielder his first day off since he was promoted from Triple-A Tacoma on May 13. After an impressive three-hit performance in his second MLB game, Kelenic has ridden the struggle bus over the Mariners' subsequent seven contests. During that stretch, Kelenic has gone 2-for-28 while reaching base at a .161 clip.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Scuffling after early success
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic is 2-for-28 with two walks, a stolen base, one hit-by-pitch and six strikeouts over his last seven games.

Following an impressive two-double, one-home-run effort against the Indians in his second major-league game, Kelenic has endured a significant funk that has his current slash line at an unsightly .139/.205/.278 through 39 plate appearances. Kelenic's .148 BABIP does have a part to play in his struggles, however, and the fact he's making contact at a relatively solid clip (20.5 percent strikeout rate), particularly for a rookie, supports the notion he could break out of his skid in short order.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Collects first big-league homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic went 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles, two total runs and three total RBI in a 7-3 victory over Cleveland on Friday.

Kelenic didn't reach base in his MLB debut Thursday, but he turned things around with a big performance Friday. After striking out in his first at-bat, the 21-year-old slugged a two-run homer to right field in the third inning for his first big-league hit. He went on to collect a pair of doubles before the game ended, including one that drove in a run in the seventh frame. Kelenic likely has plenty more big games ahead of him and should play on a near-everyday basis moving forward.

Mariners' Jarred Kelenic: Hitless in MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelenic, who made his major-league debut in Thursday's loss to Cleveland, went 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

The ultra-talented prospect swung at the first pitch he saw in the majors to lead off the home half of the first inning for the Mariners and fouled out, and he went on to strike out, ground out and fly out against Cleveland starter Zach Plesac, who twirled an eight-inning gem. Kelenic figures to remain with the big-league club after he followed an impressive spring training with a torrid start at Triple-A Tacoma.
