I was done with Kelenic. Bought him in April. Bad decision. He was ugly. Since May, he has sat on my minor league reserve, and each time I checked in, he wasn't doing much. Figured he was out of question for this year; no way he would be a freeze for next. Then recently Espinal got hurt, and nothing in the free agent pot interested me.

Kelenic, meanwhile, was hitting at Tacoma. Jerry Dipoto said on the radio that “this version” of Kelenic is “the best version we’ve seen,” and that he showed signs in recent weeks with Tacoma that he was doing things the Mariners were hoping he would, namely with pitch selection.

So, what the heck. My BA is so bad Kelenic won't hurt it. I could use the power. I'm in second place, though only a dream finish would get me to the top in what's left of the season. I moved some players around. Up came Kelenic on Sept. 26. I missed the early hits inside the park, and he is 2-14 for me.

Both hits were homers. Dare I hope for more.

Kelenic is getting another shot with the M's this year. Taylor Trammell sent to Tacoma in the corresponding move.

Must have heard me. Jacked a HR today in the 1st off Cole. My guy, Kelenic.

Wish I knew about Kelenic's future, though I now have serious doubts because of his inability to adapt his swing and style to major league pitching. I have him on reserve, but soon will be forced to cut bait. He would join Jo Adele. Expensive bait, crummy return on investments.

Hit well in Tacoma again but is 0 for 9 with 4 Ks in his three games back.  Are expectations too high or can he just not hit major league pitching?

Mariners demote Jarred Kelenic hours before first Mets matchup


The hyped prospect in the middle of the much-discussed Mets-Mariners trade will not be playing in Citi Field on Friday night.

The Mariners demoted outfielder Jarred Kelenic on Friday afternoon, hours before the struggling prospect was expected to be in the lineup against the team that drafted him.

Kelenic was the centerpiece that went to Seattle in Dec. 2018 when the Mets got back Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz in a move that has been lampooned pretty much since the day it was made.

As the two sides meet this afternoon to iron out their differences (I'm kidding), Jim Bowden has the right idea. Let's pretend teams have started playing spring training games in Florida and Arizona... what are some of the things we can look forward to in the rest of the 2020s?

1. Seattle Mariners win their first World Series

In the Mariners’ 45 years of existence, they’ve won 90 games in a season just six times and three of them came in 2001-03, which was their best opportunity to win a world championship — especially 2001, when they went a staggering 116-46 in the regular season. They’ve never been able to get it done in the playoffs, always going home empty-handed, but their championship drought will finally end in the 2020s.

The Mariners are building a strong lineup core around outfielders Jarred Kelenic, Julio Rodríguez and Kyle Lewis. They have one of the game’s best shortstop prospects, Noelvi Marte. They’ve built a contending pitching staff with lefties Robbie Ray and Marco Gonzales and righties Chris Flexen and Logan Gilbert. But what will put the Mariners over the top is when pitching prospects such as George Kirby, Emerson Hancock, Levi Stoudt and Matt Brash develop more and reach the major leagues. I don’t know if it will be Cristal, Dom Perignon, Perrier-Jouet or even Veuve Clicquot champagne that president of baseball operations Jerry DiPoto will be celebrating with when Seattle finally wins a title, but it sure will be fun.
