Mike Ford: Hits free agency
Ford became a free agent Friday after being non-tendered by the Mariners.
Ford was designated for assignment Tuesday and will now officially head to the open market. He was productive at times for Seattle in 2023 but struggled badly down the stretch. The 31-year-old owns a career .211 batting average and .309 on-base percentage in 234 total major-league games.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mike Ford: Dropped from 40-man roster
Ford was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Tuesday.
Ford was probably going to be non-tendered ahead of Friday's deadline had he remained part of the 40-man roster mix in Seattle. The 31-year-old served as the Mariners' primary designated hitter for a portion of the 2023 season but batted just .193 with a .663 OPS over his final 130 plate appearances. He'll likely elect free agency if he passes through waivers unclaimed.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mike Ford: Sits against southpaw
Ford will hit the bench against lefty Andrew Heaney and the Rangers on Saturday.
Ford hasn't started once against a southpaw all season, and he won't get to break that trend on the penultimate day of the regular season. Sam Haggerty will handle designated hitter duties in his absence.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mike Ford: On base three times in loss
Ford went 2-for-3 with a walk in a loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.
It was another quiet day for the Mariners' bats as a whole in the final installment of a three-game sweep at the hands of the Dodgers, but Ford managed one of two multi-hit efforts on the day for Seattle. The slugger came into the contest mired in a 1-for-15 skid that had encompassed his prior seven games, and the multi-hit tally was Ford's first since Sept. 4.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mike Ford: Long ball barrage continues in win
Ford went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a win over the Reds on Wednesday.
Ford struck out in two of his other three plate appearances, but he delivered a 400-foot shot to right with Ty France aboard in the second to erase an early 1-0 deficit and give the Mariners a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Ford has a modest four hits over his last four games, yet three of those have left the yard with the help of his 40.0 percent hard contact rate and 42.9 percent HR/FB rate in that sample....

Mariners' Mike Ford: Leaves yard again Monday
Ford went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Reds on Monday.
The surging slugger left the yard for the second time in as many games, belting a 388-foot shot to right center in the fifth inning. Ford has career highs in homers (15) and RBI (30), while his current .840 OPS qualifies as his highest figure since his rookie 2019 campaign with the Yankees, when he mustered a .909 figure across 163 plate appearances....

Mariners' Mike Ford: Belts solo blast Sunday
Ford went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a loss to the Mets on Sunday.
Ford went back-to-back with Dominic Canzone in leaving the yard during the fourth inning, allowing the Mariners to close a four-run deficit to one. Ford has reached safely in six straight games, an encouraging stretch during which he's posted a .333 average (5-for-15) with two homers, three RBI, three walks, a hit-by-pitch and four runs....

Mariners' Mike Ford: Resting Sunday
Ford is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.
Ford will take a seat while Teoscar Hernandez gets a day out of the outfield to serve as Seattle's designated hitter. While starting in five of the Mariners' last six games, Ford went 5-for-18 with a home run, four walks, four runs and three RBI.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mike Ford: Blasts 12th homer
Ford went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and an additional run scored in Saturday's 15-2 win over the Royals.
Ford capped off a seven-run rally in the third inning with a two-run homer to right field. The 31-year-old had been mired in a lengthy slump prior to Saturday's contest, managing only six hits (one home run) and racking up 20 strikeouts in his previous 50 at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mike Ford: On base thrice as late addition
Ford went 2-for-2 with an RBI single, a walk and a run in a win over the White Sox on Tuesday.
Ford was a late fill-in for Julio Rodriguez (illness) and made good use of the spot start, producing his first multi-hit effort since July 18. The multiple trips on the basepaths also pushed Ford's OBP back over the .300 mark (.307) for the season, and he appears to be slowly trending back up following a prolonged slump. He's hitting a respectable .263 and striking out a modest 16.7 percent of the time over his last six games.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mike Ford: Heads to bench Wednesday
Ford is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox.
Ford had served as the Mariners' designated hitter in each of the past three games, but he'll cede those duties to Dominic Canzone in the series finale. Until the Mariners get Jarred Kelenic (foot) back from the injured list, the Mariners should have two spots in the everyday lineup for Ford, Canzone and Cade Marlowe. Ford and Canzone are swinging the hotter bats of the three at the moment and may have an edge on playing time over Marlowe.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mike Ford: Enters lineup
Ford will bat eighth and serve as the designated hitter Tuesday against the White Sox.
Ford was a late addition to the lineup after Julio Rodriguez (illness) was scratched. He has only three hits across 28 at-bats since the start of August while striking out at a 27.3 percent clip.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mike Ford: Belts 12th homer Friday
Ford went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a win over the Astros on Friday.
Ford's sixth-inning blast off J.P. France accounted for the second and final run of the night. The journeyman slugger's round-tripper was his first since July 23, a 12-game span that saw Ford limp to a .063 average and .283 OPS while striking out at a 43.2 percent clip over 37 plate appearances. He's continued to log somewhat regular playing time despite the significant struggles, but it remains to be seen how much longer that will continue on a team contending for a wild-card spot....

Mariners' Mike Ford: Snaps out of slump Monday
Ford went 1-for-3 with a double and a run in a loss to the Royals on Monday.
Ford entered the night mired in an 0-for-13 slump over his previous five games, and Monday's two-bagger was his first extra-base hit since July 23. The journeyman slugger had been surging at the plate at that point, but he's subsequently experienced a 43-point drop in batting average to .221 thanks in large part to a mammoth 47.1 percent strikeout rate over the following 11 contests....

Mariners' Mike Ford: Sitting again Friday
Ford is out of the lineup again Friday versus the Angels.
Ford is slashing just .130/.216/.283 with 25 strikeouts over his last 51 plate appearances dating back to July 15 and seems to have been relegated to a bench role. Cal Raleigh is serving as the Mariners' designated hitter Friday as Tom Murphy handles the catching duties.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mike Ford: Sitting again Thursday
Ford remains out of the lineup Thursday against the Angels.
Teoscar Hernandez will serve as the Mariners' designated hitter as they face off against Shohei Ohtani. Cade Marlowe, Julio Rodriguez and Dominic Canzone are starting across the outfield. Ford has posted a solid .817 OPS since joining Seattle in early June, but he's fallen into a deep offensive rut and is hitting just .149 since the All-Star break.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mike Ford: On bench Wednesday
Ford is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Ford had some big hits for the Mariners in the early part of July, but he is slashing just .130/.216/.283 over his last 51 plate appearances. Cal Raleigh will serve as Seattle's designated hitter Wednesday with Tom Murphy handling the catching duties.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mike Ford: Sitting Saturday
Ford isn't in the Mariners' lineup Saturday against Arizona.
Ford is currently in the middle of an 0-for-13 stretch at the plate across his last four games, so he'll take a seat Saturday to regroup. Cal Raleigh will fill in as Seattle's designated hitter, allowing Tom Murphy to start behind the dish and bat seventh.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mike Ford: Smacks two-run blast Sunday
Ford went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and a walk in a loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday.
Ford started at designated hitter and took Alek Manoah deep in the second inning for his second homer in the last four games. The journeyman slugger has cooled off in terms of average over his first 10 post-All-Star-break games -- he's hitting just .222 and has an accompanying .300 on-base percentage over that span -- but he's also posted an impressive .593 slugging percentage thanks to lacing four of his six hits for extra bases in the sample....

Mariners' Mike Ford: Cranks 10th homer
Ford went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Thursday's 5-0 win over the Twins.
Ford struck out in his first three at-bats Thursday before launching a two-run homer off Jorge Lopez in the eighth inning, extending Seattle's lead to 4-0. The game was emblematic of Ford's season thus far -- he's up to 10 home runs while slashing .260/.316/.596 despite a 32.5 percent K-rate through 114 plate appearances. While Ford's batting average isn't likely sustainable, he can be a legitimate source of power in fantasy leagues.... See More ... See Less
