James Paxton went 4 1/3 innings for Triple-A Tacoma Sunday. He gave up six hits, one run, three walks and struck out five.

James Paxton went out in April due to a back injury. At that point, he had only made two starts, throwing thirteen strikeouts in twelve innings pitched, with a 2.25 ERA. The Seattle Mariners are hoping to have him back in the rotation this Saturday.

James Paxton (lat) is expected to throw 75-80 pitches Sunday at Triple-A Tacoma, then accompany big-league club on road trip.

Paxton reported no issues with his back after his first rehab outing, so the training staff is increasing his pitch count for Sunday. Should everything go smoothly again, then him making the road trip with the Mariners should signify that his next time on the mound will be in a big league game. We won't get ahead of ourselves just yet, but if this is his throwing schedule, he'd be on-track to start Friday against the Orioles.

Michael Saunders began hitting off a tee this week, as he continues to work his way back from a back injury.

Injuries have really hampered Saunders season with this being his second DL stint of the year. Saunders on the season is hitting .276 with 31 runs, six home runs, 28 RBI and three stolen bases. As of now there has been no timetable set for his return but a rehab stint is likely as he works his way back from an oblique injury.

Dustin Ackley went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored during the Mariners' 4-3 win over the Orioles on Saturday.

Ackley has been hitting well recently, as he is 12 for his last 34. His 37 runs and 34 RBI's on the season are ok, but his value has been hurt by a .242 average. While Ackley hasn't been doing very well for the Mariners, they do not have any better options, so expect him to continue to receive playing time in the near future.

Fernando Rodney picked up his 28th save of the season with a scoreless ninth against the Orioles on Saturday. He issued one walk and had one strikeout.

Rodney has been very good this season after a disappointing 2013. He has a 2.27 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP to go along with 28 saves thus far.

Chris Young tossed seven shutout innings and allowed just two hits and three walks while striking out eight against the Orioles on Saturday.

Somehow Young continues to be great for the Mariners, despite a shocking 5.21 xFIP. If there is anyway you can sell high on Young, that would be a great idea as the next couple of months will likely not be pretty.

Endy Chavez was scratched Saturday with a jammed pinky finger on his left hand.

That is the kind of injury that would make the outfielder day-to-day, depending on severity. It could affect his ability to swing a bat, however, and that would severely damage his value for fantasy purposes.

Endy Chavez was a late scratch to the Mariners lineup Saturday. James Jones will leadoff. Dustin Ackley to the two spot and Corey Hart will bat sixth and play right field.

The late scratch indicates an injury as the reason, but no details have been released yet. Even so, it is not like Chavez was a fantasy darling, hitting only .261 with a single homer and four steals.
