Danny Hultzen (rotator cuff) threw well in his third Instructional League outing in the last few weeks on Tuesday and now will be shut down until next spring.

Once a top prospect, Hultzen is continuing to rehab from surgery on a torn labrum and rotator cuff. The Mariners are playing it safe by not letting him pitch in the Arizona Fall League, but it is probably for the better. He will be treated with kid gloves next spring, but it is certainly possible that we could see him with Seattle in the latter part of the 2015 season.

James Paxton will not pitch in the Arizona Fall League as expected.

Paxton saw his rookie season put on hold after getting injured after his second start. He came off the DL in early August and had just one start where he allowed three or more runs just twice over his final 11 starts. He finished the 2014 season going 6-4 with a 3.04 ERA and 1.20 WHIP and should have no problem locking down a spot in the Mariners rotation next season.

Taijuan Walker will throw 30 innings in the Arizona fall league. 

He missed most of this season with an injury, which limited the amount of innings he threw. This will improve his game by getting him extra experience before spring training starts.

Dustin Ackley will be seeing a specialist for his ankle, but doesn't feel surgery is likely.

His ankle was giving him problems the last month of the season, which caused him to miss games. He had a pretty good season and will be a nice sleeper pick in fantasy drafts next season.

Mariners designated Corey Hart for assignment.

Hart has battled injuries throughout his career and had another disappointing this season because of injuries.

Michael Saunders went 2-for-3 with two doubles, two RBI, a run scored and a walk in the Mariners win over the Angels on Sunday. 

At the beginning of 2014, everyone was targeting Saunders as they knew he was going to reach double digit home runs and steals. However, due to some injuries, he didn't make it to double digits in either category. He had just over half as many at-bats as he did last year, and is average was more than 30 points better. Albeit he had a rather disappointing fantasy season, he will be drafted as a bounce back candidate in 2015.

Felix Hernandez improved to 15-6 after not giving up a run on one hit and no walks with seven strikeouts over 5.1 innings in the Mariners win against the Angels on Sunday. 

Hernandez had another impressive season as the ace of the Seattle Mariners. He ends the year with a 15-6 record, and a 2.14 ERA. He struck out over a batter an inning, and he will be the main competitor with Corey Kluber for the American League Cy Young award. Those who drafted King Felix should have started him the entire season, and he was as reliable as they come. Another great year in the books for King Felix, who will once again be one of the first five or seven pitchers taken off the board in 2015.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI against the Angels on Saturday.

Morrison is now 9-for-25 (.360 BA) with five extra-base hits (2 HR), five RBI and four runs scored over his last seven games as he continues to be a solid contributor in the middle of the Mariners lineup. However, he is still hitting just .259 with 11 home runs and 38 RBI through 332 at-bats, which is nothing special.
