Following the All Star break the Mariners rotation will be Hisashi Iwakuma, Felix Hernandez, Chris Young and Roenis Elias.
Iwakuma and King Felix have been flip-flopped in the rotation. They'll open the second half against the Angels in Anaheim. If the season ended today, Seattle and the Angels would play for the Wild Card spot in the AL.ANALYST:
Marc Krauss went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday in Toronto.
Krauss is hitting only .150 with a .350 slugging percentage after launching his first home run of the season. It was just his seventh game of the season, but there’s no doubt he’ll need to cut down on the strikeouts if he’s ever going to be able to showcase the decent pop he has. The left-handed hitter was called up from AAA to try and infuse some offense in Anaheim and was slugging .639 over his past 10 games. With Matt Joyce really struggling, expect Krauss to steal some of his at-bats over the next few weeks. Analysis: Kevin Luchansky
