● Michael Saunders hit leadoff for the second straight game in a row for the Mariners. Abraham Almonte, who Seattle had been using at leadoff, is hitting just .198 and more damningly now leads all major leaguers in strikeouts with 40. Saunders hasn't been great so far either (.234 average), but it does indeed look like he's going to get a decent run at the top of the M's lineup, which can only be good for his value.
