  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Productive day in win

    Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with an RBI double, a stolen base and a run in a loss to the Pirates on Saturday.

    Rodriguez drove home J.P. Crawford with a two-bagger in the second inning for his sixth RBI in the last six games, a span during which he's hit a blistering .480 across 26 plate appearances. The two-hit effort was also Rodriguez's fourth straight, and his current hot streak, which arguably constitutes his best offensive stretch of the season, has boosted his batting average and OPS by 34 and 71 points, respectively.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Clubs eighth homer

    Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Friday's 11-6 loss to the Pirates.

    Rodriguez slugged a solo shot in the first inning and added a two-run single in the fifth for his fourth multi-hit effort in his last five games. He'd gone 12 contests without a homer entering Friday. The outfielder appears to be turning things around after struggling through the first quarter of the campaign. He's slashing .233/.302/.416 with eight homers, 26 RBI, 33 runs scored and eight stolen bases through 49 games.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Stays hot in Wednesday's win

    Rodriguez went 2-for-5 with an RBI single in a win over the Athletics on Wednesday.

    Rodriguez' fourth-inning single brought home the Mariners' fourth run of the frame. The talented outfielder did strike out in three of his five plate appearances after going back-to-back contests without a strikeout, but he's picked up the pace at the plate of late by posting a .271 average with four doubles, a home run, eight RBI and a 10.9 percent walk rate across the 55 plate appearances covering his last 12 games.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Three hits in Monday's win

    Rodriguez went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a hit-by-pitch, one RBI and three runs scored in Monday's 11-2 win over the Athletics.

    Rodriguez had gone just 4-for-30 over the last eight games since his three-hit effort May 12 versus the Tigers. He hasn't homered since that game. The second-year outfielder has shown flashes this season, but he's struggling at a .216/.293/.395 slash line with seven home runs, 22 RBI, 32 runs scored and eight stolen bases through 45 contests.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Registers eighth steal

    Rodriguez went 0-for-2 with three walks, a stolen base and two runs scored in Saturday's 7-3 win over Atlanta.

    Rodriguez dropped to 8-for-43 (.186) over his last 11 contests, but he was able to record multiple walks for the first time since April 23. Saturday's effort spiked his walk rate up to 8.7 percent, and he's striking out at a 28.6 percent clip this season. It's been almost exclusively a decrease in average that's led to something resembling a sophomore slump for the 22-year-old. He's slashing .209/.286/.384 through 43 contests this season after posting a .284/.345/.509 line last year. Rodriguez has still added solid counting starts in 2023 with seven home runs, eight steals, 21 RBI and 29 runs scored.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Thriving since moving down order

    Rodriguez, who's reached safely in all four games since being moved out of the leadoff spot, may be more relaxed without the pressure of hitting out of the top of the order, James Schapiro of reports. "It's just taking a deep breath, is what he's doing," manager Scott Servais said. "[The] team's not doing a whole lot, he wants to jump up and be the guy to help us out. So [not hitting in the leadoff spot] just gives him a little more time to relax."

    Rodriguez was slashing a paltry .204/.266/.387 in 155 plate appearances out of the leadoff spot before Servais opted to switch him to sixth in the order for Wednesday's series finale against the Rangers, a game in which he went 1-for-4 with a run. The Mariners skipper then bumped Rodriguez up to the No. 3 hole in the lineup for two of the three games in the weekend set against the Tigers and the cleanup spot for the other contest in the series. Rodriguez responded by going 4-for-12 with a home run, five RBI, two walks, a stolen base and four total runs versus Detroit, perhaps snapping him out of his extended funk for the time being. Servais emphasized he'll maintain a flexible approach with Rodriguez's lineup placement for now, and continued success in spots other than the leadoff role will likely keep him closer to the middle of the order.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Four RBI in blowout win

    Rodriguez went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run, two additional RBI and an additional run scored in Friday's 9-2 victory over the Tigers.

    Rodriguez's two-run single in the second extended Seattle's lead to 5-0, and his seventh homer of the season made it 9-2 in the ninth. The reigning Rookie of the Year has gotten off to a slow start this year and was even moved down the batting order recently, but when he's right, the superstar center fielder is as good as anyone in the game. Friday's outing marking Rodriguez's first three-hit game of the year, but he's still slashing just .219/.280/.411.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Batting third versus lefty

    Rodriguez is starting in center field and batting third Friday for the Mariners' game versus the Tigers.

    Rodriguez was moved down from leadoff to the six spot Wednesday against a righty, but with lefty Matthew Boyd starting Friday he'll slide up to the middle of the order. For what it's worth, J-Rod has just a .616 OPS versus southpaws so far this season.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Moved down to six spot

    Rodriguez will start in center field and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    It's the first time this season that Rodriguez isn't leading off in a game he started. The superstar outfielder has just a .658 OPS on the season and is 2-for-29 with 11 strikeouts so far in May. Still, he's hardly alone among Mariners regulars in struggling, so it's a bit of a surprise to see such a precipitous drop in the lineup. Shortstop J.P. Crawford is leading off Wednesday.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Leaves yard in win

    Rodriguez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in a win over the Astros on Sunday.

    Rodriguez uncorked his sixth home run of the season in the third inning off Brandon Bielak, a massive 454-foot shot to center that opened the scoring on the afternoon. The big blast, the longest of the phenom's career, was a sight for sore eyes, as Rodriguez hadn't left the yard since April 26 and entered the game mired in a 1-for-17 funk over the previous five games. The 22-year-old has struggled to a .216 average and .286 on-base percentage thus far, but there's some solace in the fact he carries a 37.2 percent hard-hit rate and boasts a .262 xBA that suggests he's been unlucky at times when putting the ball in play; to the latter point, Daniel Kramer of reports Rodriguez made four outs during the weekend series on batted balls with exit velocities of 100 mph or greater.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Back in outfield Friday

    Rodriguez is leading off and playing center field against the Astros on Friday, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.

    Rodriguez has been the designated hitter over the last two games after missing a pair of games with a back issue, but he'll be back patrolling center field for the Mariners on Friday against Cristian Javier and the Astros.

  • Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Walks, scores in return

    Rodriguez (back) went 0-for-4 with a walk and a run in an extra-inning win over the Athletics on Wednesday.

    The Mariners were cautious with their star outfielder in his return from a two-game absence, limiting him to designated hitter duties. Rodriguez has now reached safely in three straight games, but he's still carrying a disappointing .231 average and .297 on-base percentage through 128 plate appearances thus far this season.
