Jarred Kelenic went 0-for-2 with one run, two walks one strikeout in the Mariners 5-4 win Saturday against Oakland.
After drawing a walk in the ninth inning, Kelenic went on to score the walk-off run for the Mariners on a wild pitch by Lou Trivino with the bases loaded and two outs. He did have a couple of solid at-bats on the two walks, but he has still yet to register a hit in each of his last five games.
Jarred Kelenic went 1-for-5 with two strikeouts in the Mariners 9-4 loss Saturday against the Angels.
Kelenic picked up a single in his first at-bat Saturday night. He has now collected a single in each of his first two games back since being recalled from Triple-A Tacoma, though he has also struck out four times in nine at-bats.
Jarred Kelenic is being recalled from Triple-A Tacoma and will join the Seattle Mariners on Friday ahead of their first game back from the All-Star break.
This will be round two for Kelenic after hitting just .096 over 83 at-bats during his first call up. Despite that, Kelenic continued to hit well in Triple-A and still holds huge upside at the major league level.
Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times suggests that Mariners top prospect OF Jarred Kelenic will begin the second half with the big league club.
The Mariners haven't officially announced the move, but Divish notes that Kelenic didn't travel back to Tacoma (Triple-A) following Sunday's Futures Game. The 21-year-old struggled mightily in his first cup of coffee in the major leagues, but he's talented enough that fantasy managers should be willing to give him a second chance. Kelenic should be rostered in every 12-team league entering the weekend.
Jarred Kelenic went 0-for-4 with a walk in Wednesday's game for Triple-A Tacoma.
Kelenic is just 4-for-23 with two walks since being demoted. He does have two homers and two steals, but the young outfielder is still finding himself. We expect he'll be in the majors again within the next month or so, but the Mariners might wait for a hot streak before calling him up.
