The Seattle Mariners (0-0) are preparing to hit long balls against the Minnesota Twins (0-0) to start their MLB 2022 Regular Season at Target Field in Minneapolis on Friday, April 8, 2022, at 4:10 PM ET.

 

Seattle will try to end their playoff drought and start the regular season with an improved offense that ranked 22nd in runs scored per match, a batting average that ranked 30th in the league, and an on-base plus slugging (OPS) percentage that ended up 27th in MLB last 2021 season.

Seattle will feature 2nd Baseman Adam Frazier, 3rd Baseman Eugenio Suárez, and Left Fielder Jesse Winker to resolve some issues in their offense last year.

 

The Mariners also exposed youngster Center Fielder Julio Rodriguez last spring training to be more productive and help Seattle in acquiring their first playoff ticket this season.    

 

The CY Young Award winner Robbie Ray will be on his way up the hill to start the opening day for the Mariners against the Minnesota Twins on Friday. The southpaw thrower is 13-7 with 2.84 ERA and 248 strikeouts while allowing a total of 61 earned runs in pitching for 32 outings last 2021 season.
