Mariners recall Tug Hullett

Recommended Posts

Lost in the Richie Sexson stuff today was that the M's called up Tug Hulett to replace him. Most of us will remember when Tim Hulett's son Sam was killed back in 1992 when he was hit by a car. Congrats to the Hulett's. Hope the kid sticks around for a while.

That's great to hear. I have his Frisco RoughRiders road jersey from 2006. The people down there really liked him a lot. Thought he was a great kid.

Oddly enough I also have Ruddy Yan's RoughRiders home jersey from that same season.

I dont know what kind of prospect he is, but let's hope Seattle gives him a chance to see what he can do. That team is an absolute mess, so I'm sure they can afford to give him a shot.

Ruddy Yan! I remember a scout hanging around the press box in Trenton before a game last August, filling out his scorecard with the lineups for the Baysox and Trenton Thunder. Before he left the press box he quipped, "It ain't baseball, without Ruddy Yan hitting leadoff.."

Funny thing was, Ruddy had two or three hits that day. The next time that scout was around for a Baysox game, radio guy Steve Smith made sure he respected the prowess of one, Ruddy Yan. Though, while on the subject, Ruddy did in fact make the final out of Radhames Liz' no-hitter last year in Bowie. It was a great catch he made, going back towards the corner of the left field foul area. One of the few interesting tidbits on Ruddy and his time spent in the Orioles organization.

One "L" - therein lied the problem.

Thanks.

Sorry, I spelled it wrong in the title, but not in the first post.. My fault.

Mariners designated infielder Tug Hulett for assignment.

Hulett, who hit .224/.309/.306 in 49 at-bats for the Mariners last season, goes to open up a roster spot for Luis Pena. He looked like a pretty good bet to make the Mariners as a utilityman before the Ronny Cedeno acquisition, but he's strictly a fringe player. If he clears waivers, he'll still get his chance to compete for a job on Seattle's bench.

Maybe there is still a chance for him.

    • We'll sometimes talk about how a rookie will get 56 plate appearances and hit .188 and that kind of dooms him, or at least forces him back to the minors for a long time.  Even though it was mostly noise and bad luck.  I'm sure that happens on the back end of careers, too.  Decision makers and the player himself can get confirmation bias that SSS slumps are reality.
    • I thought he hired Brocail pretty late in the offseason when no one else was available. I always got the impression Elias thought Brocail was the best he could do on short notice. I'm kind of surprised he lasted more than a year to begin with, but maybe someone Elias really wanted became available, or like was said earlier in the thread with minor league contraction there will be a ton of candidates
    • Fredi Gonzalez and Tim Cossins both served as bench coaches in 2020.   Gonzalez besides being a former manager was Third Base Coach for the Marlins from 2016 through 2019.   My guess is he takes over Flores join at 3rd base. That would cut the number of coaches on Hyde's staff from 8 to 7.
    • In 2020: Overall: .273/.312/.481, 12 HR and 35 RBI in 231 PA Vs. O’s: .333/.356/.881, 7 HR and 18 RBI in 45 PA. Vs. other teams: .259/.301/.385, 5 HR and 17 RBI in 186 PA. In 2019: Overall: .232/.280/.457, 31 HR, 80 RBI in 628 PA Vs. O’s: .321/.368/.830, 7 HR, 15 RBI in 57 PA Vs. Other teams: .223/.271/.420, 24 HR and 65 RBI in 571 PA. This guy is a sub-.700 OPS hitter when he’s not playing us, and a 1.200+ OPS hitter when facing the O’s.    That’s nuts! Anyway, glad to see the Blue Jays quickly bounced from the playoffs.  
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970 the Baltimore Orioles finished the season with a walk-off 3-2 win over the Washington Senators. The winning run was a result of Davey Johnson's RBI single that allowed Merv Rettenmund to score.  Reliever Jim Hardin was the beneficiary of the winning run and recorded his 6th win of the season. Jim Palmer started and allowed 2 runs on 9 hits with 3 walks and 6 strikeouts over 8.0 innings. Frank Robinson hit his 25th homerun and went 1 for 3 with 1 run scored and 1 RBI.  Chico Salmon went 2 for 2. The Orioles finished the season on an 11 game winning streak and with an overall 108-54 record, 15.0 games ahead of the second place New York Yankees. BOX SCORE
