Hector Noesi, Seattle Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Insider Steve gives us his weekly M’s pitching breakdown in the arms under the spotlight segment. The bullpen made strides this week. I understand how that reads considering Brandon League had another meltdown. Felix Hernandez, who was lights out in the week’s opener was rattled in his second start of the week.

Angels vs. Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the second M’s game of the series versus the L.A. Angels of Anaheim.
