MLB Predictions: Will Angels & Mariners slug Friday night in Seattle? 8/11/17

Mariners fall to Angels

Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout swings for a three-run double against the Seattle Mariners during the ninth inning of a baseball game Thursday Aug. 10 2017 in Seattle

Right-hander Shae Simmons could also be activated from the 60-day disabled list.

James Paxton went on the 10-day disabled list Friday for the second time this season. "Obviously, it's disheartening news". "It's been a insane season, really it has been, with all of the injuries". To put ourselves in the position we're in right now, a lot of it has had to do with James Paxton.

Both of these guys either seems to be really good or really bad, especially JC, who has allowed four or more earned runs in four of his last 10 starts. He had entered the American League Cy Young conversation. Before Thursday's start, he had won seven in a row. He wound up with a no-decision.

The red-hot Trout has recorded eight multi-hit performances in his last 12 games and is a torrid 20-for-44 with four homers and 11 RBIs during the stretch. I felt pretty good when I woke up this morning so to hear that it's a strain and it's going to be a few weeks was frustrating. Servais said he did not know who would fill Paxton's spot in the rotation on Tuesday. "We're going to see how it responds here and get back as soon as possible". Paxton has missed time in the past because of a lat strain, finger tendon issues, and ended up on the DL a year ago after getting hit on the arm by a line drive. "I feel like I've had enough of those".

Buccaneers cut ties with kicker Roberto Aguayo
The Bucs traded up into the second round to draft Aguayo after he was an All-American kicker at Florida State. Aguayo made a 20-yard field goal for the Bucs in the game, but missed a 47-yard attempt and an extra point.

This is potentially another blow to the Mariners' pitching depth just days after ace Felix Hernandez went down with a shoulder injury. The 2017 edition of the Mariners certainly hasn't been short of talent, but they've only just started to look like they can turn the talent they do have into a legitimate run at the playoffs. Paxton had fanned six batters of 6.1 innings of three-run ball prior to his exit.

The Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners meet Saturday in Major League Baseball action at Safeco Field.

"We've been through it before. It's different when it's in August and you're fighting for something here and you've really battled your butt off to get in this spot", Servais said.
