As the 2020 Major League Baseball season reached its final days, and the competition grew one-sided in favor of Kyle Lewis, it became clear the Seattle Mariners’ young center fielder should win the 2020 Jackie Robinson American League Rookie of the Year award.
SEATTLE – The expected kudos for Kyle Lewis and his outstanding rookie season for the Seattle Mariners have started to accumulate in the past week, but he’ll have to wait a few more weeks before he can receive the most coveted of these rookie postseason awards.
ANAHEIM, Calif. – Griffin Canning and Justin Dunn traded zeros for six splendid innings Sunday, two young starters fulfilling their potential in a duel that thrilled their managers.
SEATTLE – It’s not fair to Kyle Lewis to make the comparison directly, but he plays baseball with such a casual easiness – and with such soothing joy – that it’s hard not to remind one at least a little bit of a certain Hall of Fame center fielder who starred in Seattle in the 1990s.
SEATTLE – To be fair, as the Mariners have slowly climbed up from where they couldn’t go any lower, the two front-office members most often asked about the subject – general manager Jerry Dipoto and director of player development Andy McKay – still maintain that rankings from “third-party” media don’t influence their decisions.

The “step-back” season of 2019 mercifully came to a close for the Mariners with something that only happened about once every three games after their 13-2 start to the season – a victory. A group of five pitchers, working in short bursts of either two innings or one, combined to lead Seattle to a 3-1 win over the Oakland A’s.
Jose Ruiz walked Tom Murphy with the bases loaded in the ninth inning and the Seattle Mariners won via walk-off for the second straight game, beating the Chicago White Sox 11-10.
A Kyle provided the Mariners with their first run on a night when few were expected with his first homer in his first major-league game. Another Kyle provide the game-winning runs with the 197th homer of his MLB career in his 1,244th big-league game.
Enough with the bad news. It’s been a pretty crummy week to be a Seattle Mariners fan. Rather than dwell on the negative vibes emitting from the Safeco Field clubhouse surrounding the suspension of M’s star Robinson Cano for a PED masking agent – and his halfhearted nondenial denial – let’s instead look ahead at some of the Mariners top prospects in the minor leagues.
Recaps for the Seattle Mariners top affiliates for Tuesday provided by team releases and wire reports.
Listening to center fielder Kyle Lewis shortly after he signed his contract with the Mariners and took part Saturday in batting practice ... maybe this was meant to be.
