    The Seattle Times: Mariners' rookie sensation Kyle Lewis goes opposite field for his fifth homer in eight games

    PITTSBURGH -- No rookie has any business hitting that pitch that way that hard.

    But the Mariners' Kyle Lewis says he's always had natural opposite-field power, and he showed it off once again Wednesday night.

    With an inside-out swing, Lewis hit a 91-mph inside sinker 383 feet over PNC Park's out-of-town scoreboard in right field, his fifth home run in his eighth major-league game.

    The ball rocketed off Lewis' bat at 102.1 mph, and all 10 of his major-league hits have registered off his barrel at at least 100 mph.

    Lewis had 11 home runs in 122 games for Class AA Arkansas this season.

    The Seattle Times: So far, Jarred Kelenic and Julio Rodriguez have been everything the Mariners hoped they would be

    PITTSBURGH -- An infusion of young talent has added intrigue and energy to the final days of a long, lost season for the Seattle Mariners.

    That's been true inside the Mariners clubhouse and, no doubt, for many of you paying attention back home.

    And while September call-ups Kyle Lewis and Justin Dunn, among others, have provided a spark to the big-league club in the last week, there is still tremendous anticipation about what's happening in the Mariners' revamped minor-league system, about the kind of talent that could bring even more intrigue to Seattle in the coming years.

    Fansided: Grading 2019 Seattle Mariners Season: First Base

    In the first article of the series, we focused on Mariners catchers Tom Murphy and Omar Narvaez and both received excellent grades for their work in 2019. Today, we take a look at a position that isn't quite as clear; first base.

    Let's start right here, a large portion of starts at the position went to Edwin Encarnacion and Jay Bruce, who are no longer with the team. Therefore, they aren't eligible for grading. That leaves just 2 players to grade, so let's get started.

    2019 slash: .214/.348/.457. 1.9 fWAR

    Pros: 30 homers, 16.

    Lookout Landing: Justus Sheffield's changeup is getting the work it needs

    There are, with few exceptions, no two-pitch starters. The challenge of facing a MLB lineup three or more times without much variation in offering is too daunting, the opponents too talented. It's what makes scouts look at Justus Sheffield and see a future reliever, using his fastball-slider combo to excellent but condensed effect. Good relievers are important, of course, but pitchers who can capably handle 5+ innings will always provide their team more flexibility than those that go 1-2. Naturally then, the Mariners want Justus Sheffield to be a starter. If their top-heavy rapid rebuild is to be successful, they likely NEED Justus Sheffield to be a starter.

    Lookout Landing: Naval WARfare: Mariners (62-88) at Pirates (65-85)

    September always looked like it'd be the most interesting month of the year for the 2019 Mariners, but even the cheeriest prognostication would've been laughed out of the building for the past week and a half. Now, after a 4-2 homestand, the Mariners head to Pittsburgh to face a team that looks nearly as different as they do since they last faced off.

    At a Glance
    Game 1 Tuesday, September 17 | 4:05 pm
    LHP Marco Gonzales RHP Mitch Keller
    Game 2 Wednesday, September 18 | 4:05 pm
    RHP Justin Dunn RHP Dario Agrazal
    Game 3 Thursday, September 19 | 9:35 am
    LHP Yusei Kikuchi LHP Steven Brault

    In some ways, the Pirates are Seattle's closest NL facsimile.

    The Seattle Times: 'It's been really, really fun to watch': Mariners' Kyle Lewis takes his hot start on the road

    PITTSBURGH -- Scott Servais can surely speak for everyone who bore witness to Kyle Lewis' first week in the big leagues.

    "It's been really, really fun to watch," the Mariners manager said Tuesday.

    There were a lot of firsts for Lewis during his first week with the Mariners back in Seattle last week: His first home run in his first game ... then his second home run in his second game ... then a third homer in his third game ... and then a fourth on Sunday, making him one of just five players in major-league history with four home runs and nine runs batted in his first six games.

    Lookout Landing: Mariners' battery electrifies Pirates, also defeats them

    I've never been a big fan of catchers in general.

    They have a really tough job. They impact the game more than any position in baseball, with the exception of the pitcher. While sabermaticians are still working out how best to value things such as pitch framing, the latest Fangraphs update saw Mike Zunino's 2014 season shoot up to 3.8 fWAR.

    Mike Zunino hit .199 that year. His wRC+ was 87. At the plate, he was putrid.

    That's what bothers me about catchers, though. I understand the toll that their work takes on their bodies.

    The Seattle Times: Marco Gonzales pitches (and hits!) Mariners to 6-0 victory in Pittsburgh

    PITTSBURGH -- As a junior at Gonzaga in 2013, Marco Gonzales went 7-3 with a 2.80 earned-run average on the mound and led the Zags at the plate with a .311 batting average, earning him the John Olerud Award as college baseball's best two-way player.

    Which is a long way of saying this: The dude can hit a little.

    Gonzales pitched one of his best games of the season and he had his first hit as a Mariner -- a double off Pittsburgh starter Mitch Keller -- to carry the Mariners to a 6-0 victory to open their three-game series against the Pirates on Tuesday night at PNC Park.

    Lookout Landing: 9/17: Open Game Thread

    After a strong homestand with back-to-back series wins against teams who are ostensibly better than them, the Mariners head out on their last road trip of the season, starting off things in Pittsburgh. As we noted in the series preview, the Pirates and Mariners have been vying for that sixth draft pick down the stretch, and the outcome of this series could loom large in determining who finishes where.

    Lineups!

    You couldn't have combined these for us somewhere guys?

    Tonight's pitching matchup is one I'm keen to see. Mitch Keller has been the Pirates' top prospect for a while, and was 14th overall on MLB's Top-100 list last season.

    Fansided: Grading Seattle Mariners 2019 Season Performances: Catcher

    But before we dive into grades, let's talk a little bit about our process. Obviously, the Mariners aren't done playing yet, but two weeks isn't going to drastically change grades, so let's begin now so we can hopefully be done by the end of the month.

    Also, grades are all subjective. There isn't an answer key here. It is more like grading book reports as opposed to grading math test. There are many different correct answers here. We will be grading players on a standard 0-100 scale, where 100 is an A+ and 0 is an F-.

    Our reports cards will also include some positives and negatives for each player, in our attempt to factor in as much as possible when handing out these grades.
