Roenis Elias had an MRI test Friday on his elbow, but won't get results until Monday.

We can basically rule out Elias for the remainder of the regular season. It's possible that if the Mariners go deep into the playoffs, he could pitch in some capacity, but there the odds certainly skew towards Elias not throwing another pitch in 2014.

Felix Hernandez set a new career high with his 236 strikeouts on the season. 

His previous high was 232 set in 2010 when he pitched a total of 249.2 innings (8.36 K/9). You want to talk fine wine and getting better with age? Here we are now four seasons later and he's got 236 strikeouts in just 226 innings for an extremely impressive 9.40 K/9. Once again, King Felix showing the world why he reigns above all others.

Fernando Rodney escaped with his 46th save after allowing a home run in the ninth inning in Thursday's 3-1 victory over the Angels.

It wasn't the best of outings from Rodney, but he managed to log his 46th save of the season after surrendering a home run to Hank Conger. He has now converted 46 of his 49 save chances in his first year with the Mariners, while maintaining a solid 2.70 ERA and 1.34 WHIP through 63.1 innings. Considering this was his first appearance since September 13, expect Rodney to be available most of the weekend.

Felix Hernandez tossed seven scoreless innings allowing just three hits and two walks while striking out 11 batters against the Angels on Thursday.

Hernandez pitched a gem on Thursday, but was unable to escape with his 15th win after the game remained tied until the ninth inning. He is now 14-5 with a 2.07 ERA and 0.91 WHIP through 32 starts while maintaining a 236:43 K:BB rate along the way as he remains a front runner for the AL Cy Young award. King Felix will look to finish the regular season on a high note when he takes on the Blue Jays and the Angels next week.

Logan Morrison went 2-for-4, connecting on a three-run home run in the ninth inning to give the Mariners all they needed to pull off the victory over the Angels Thursday.

Morrison is now 8-for-16 with two home runs and four RBI over his last six games as he tries to salvage what is left of a lost season. When in the starting lineup on a regular basis Morrison has shown the ability to be a solid deep league contributor, but at this point in the year it is hard to make him an add regardless of how he is currently hitting the ball.

James Paxton fell to 6-3 after allowing three runs on four hits and a walk with eight strikeouts over 6.2 innings in a loss to the Angels on Wednesday. 

Paxton was rolling through six scoreless innings before running into trouble in the seventh. He has been very impressive since his promotion to the big leagues, and will be one of the more interesting fantasy pitchers going into next season.

Taijuan Walker will get the start Friday for the Mariners.

Walker replaces Roenis Elias in the rotation. Walker has not allowed more than three earned runs in any of his four big league starts this season, though he has pitched out of the bullpen the last two weeks. He could be a useful spot starter against the Astros, though we probably will not go very deep into the game.
