Seattle Mariners Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Cano went 2-for-4 with two home runs and six RBI in Thursday's win over the Tigers.
Impact: The veteran second baseman smacked a two-run shot off Daniel Norris in the third, and he followed up with a grand slam off former closer Francisco Rodriguez in the seventh. They were just his second and third homers of June, but Cano is on pace to exceed 100 RBI for the fifth time in his career, and there's room for growth with the batting average given his excellent contact rate.
News: Cishek threw a perfect inning with two strikeouts against the Tigers on Thursday for his first save of the season.
Impact: Both John Hicks and Ian Kinsler went down swinging against Cishek, who pulled his ERA under 4.00 with his third consecutive scoreless appearance. Regular closer Edwin Diaz had worked each of the previous four days.
News: Moore (1-0) gave up three runs on six hits while striking out four over seven innings in a win over the Tigers on Thursday.
Impact: Taking over for Yovani Gallardo, who was recently shifted to the bullpen, Moore excelled in his first career start. His control was as advertised (1.5 BB/9 at Triple-A), as he issued first-pitch strikes to 18 of 26 batters faced and did not give out a single free pass. A second-round pick in 2015, Moore can keep hitters off balance with an impressive changeup, but it's uncertain if he will stick with Felix Hernandez (shoulder) set to return this weekend.
News: Iwakuma (shoulder) has been recalled from his rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma in order to undergo further medical evaluation, Bob Dutton of The News Tribune reports.
Impact: It had already been announced earlier this week that the veteran right-hander's planned activation this coming Saturday had been scrapped, and Thursday's development paints an even murkier picture with respect to a potential return date. Iwakuma last big-league game action came on May 3, and he endured a rough two-inning outing in his rehab start for the Rainiers this past Monday.
News: Dyson is not in the lineup Thursday against the Tigers, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Impact: After starting each of the last four games for the Mariners, Dyson will head to the bench with southpaw Daniel Norris toeing the rubber for the Tigers. Guillermo Heredia will start in his place in center field for the contest.
News: Vincent notched his ninth hold in Wednesday's 7-5 win over the Tigers, allowing a hit over a scoreless inning.
Impact: After the Mariners had rallied to take a 7-4 lead with four runs in the seventh, Vincent served as an effective bridge to closer Edwin Diaz in the ninth. It was the veteran right-hander's third hold over the last four nights and fifth overall in six June appearances. Vincent has a 14-appearance scoreless streak that dates back to May 14 and has lowered his ERA from 3.06 to 1.80 in the process.
News: Zych (3-2) fired 1.2 scoreless innings in Wednesday's 7-5 win over the Tigers, allowing a walk and recording a strikeout.
Impact: Zych got five important outs on a scant 17 pitches, ringing up the first two after coming on in relief of James Paxton with two on in the sixth. The 26-year-old right-hander has four consecutive scoreless outings and has accomplished the feat in nine of his last 10 appearances overall. Zych has proven to be one of the steadiest bullpen options for manager Scott Servais, generating a solid 2.08 ERA and 1.15 WHIP across 21.2 innings.
News: Cano went 1-for-4 with a go-ahead two-run double and a run in Wednesday's 7-5 win over the Tigers.
Impact: Cano's seventh-inning two-bagger brought home Jean Segura and Ben Gamel, snapping a 4-4 tie. The 34-year-old second baseman had gone hitless over the first two games of the series versus Detroit, and his double was the first extra-base hit he'd logged since June 9. Despite an overall power drought this month, Cano is still sporting an impressive 37.1 percent hard-contact rate over his 88 plate appearances in June.
News: Cruz went 2-for-4 with three RBI from a two-run double and a run-scoring single in Wednesday's 7-5 win over the Tigers.
Impact: The slugging outfielder's June tear continues, as Cruz now has nine multi-hit outings and extra-base hits during the month as part of an impressive .344/.427/.547 line. The 36-year-old also has possession of the AL lead in RBI and ranks fourth overall in the majors behind the prolific trio of Jake Lamb, Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado.
News: Jean Segura went 1 for 3 Wednesday as the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 7-5. Segura scored twice. He ended the game with a .341 batting average.
Impact:
News: Nelson Cruz went 2 for 4 with a double and three RBIs Wednesday as the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 7-5. He ended the game with a .296 batting average.
Impact: Cruz keeps on mashing at Safeco Field, where he's 15 for 35 (.429) with seven extra-base hits over his last 10 games. The AL's leader with 58 RBIs, he's now batting .336 with seven homers and 26 RBIs in 34 home games for the year.
News: Jarrod Dyson went 1 for 4 Wednesday as the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 7-5. Dyson scored once. He ended the game with a .249 batting average.
Impact:
News: Ben Gamel went 2 for 4 with an RBI Wednesday as the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 7-5. Gamel scored once. He ended the game with a .354 batting average.
Impact: Arguably the hottest hitter in baseball right now, Gamel is batting an astounding .463 (25 for 54) with 14 runs scored during a 13-game hitting streak in which he's recorded nine multihit efforts. It's safe to assume the rookie's place in the lineup is secure.
News: Robinson Cano went 1 for 4 with a double and two RBIs Wednesday as the Seattle Mariners topped the Detroit Tigers 7-5. Cano scored once. He ended the game with a .281 batting average.
Impact: Cano has had a quiet June, though he came through with one of this game's biggest hits when his two-run double in the seventh inning snapped a 4-all tie. The perennial All-Star entered Wednesday's matchup with just six RBIs in 19 games this month, and he's recorded a pedestrian .670 OPS thus far in June.
News: Mitch Haniger went 2 for 4 with a home run and an RBI Wednesday as the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 7-5. The homer was his sixth of the season. He ended the game with a .319 batting average.
Impact:
News: Danny Valencia went 0 for 4 Wednesday as the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 7-5. He ended the game with a .256 batting average.
Impact:
News: Kyle Seager went 0 for 3 Wednesday as the Seattle Mariners topped the Detroit Tigers 7-5. He ended the game with a .257 batting average.
Impact:
News: Mike Zunino went 0 for 3 Wednesday as the Seattle Mariners beat the Detroit Tigers 7-5. Zunino scored once. He ended the game with a .252 batting average.
Impact:
News: Nick Vincent allowed one hit without giving up a run in 1.0 inning as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Detroit Tigers 7-5 on Wednesday. Vincent did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 1.80 ERA and 1.00 WHIP on the season.
Impact:
News: James Paxton allowed four runs - three earned - on nine hits and two walks in 5.1 innings as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Detroit Tigers 7-5 on Wednesday. Paxton struck out eight, ending the game with a 3.39 ERA and 1.31 WHIP on the season.
Impact: Paxton is still trying to find his way after missing nearly a month with a forearm strain. The left-hander owns an 8.50 ERA over his past four starts and is averaging less than five innings per outing during that period.
News: Edwin Diaz recorded his 12th save, allowing one run on two hits in 1.0 inning, as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Detroit Tigers 7-5 on Wednesday. Diaz struck out one, ending the game with a 3.34 ERA and 1.15 WHIP on the season.
Impact:
News: The Mariners outrighted Cloyd to Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday after he cleared waivers, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Impact: Cloyd boasted a 1.40 ERA in five starts at Tacoma already this year, and his one-outing cameo with the Mariners wasn't enough to argue for a sustained opportunity. The 30-year-old, who had a bit of prospect promise near the turn of the decade with the Phillies, will look to bolster his case as something more than an organizational depth piece.
News: Segura (ankle) went 1-for-3 with a walk in his return from the disabled list Wednesday against Detroit.
Impact: After missing the last 18 games with an ankle injury, there seemed to be no lingering effects as the 27-year-old ran around the bases to score twice in the late innings. Segura, who is batting .341 on the year, will move back into his everyday role at shortstop, where he will look to continue his hot season at the plate.
