MLB Notes: Miguel Cabrera gets record contract

Miguel Cabrera’s bid to become one of the greatest hitters of all time apparently will take place in a Detroit Tigers uniform. CBS Sports first reported Thursday that the Tigers and Cabrera have agreed to a long-term extension that will keep him with the club at least through 2021, if not longer.

Fister’s hard luck continues in bizarre M’s loss

San Diego’s Cameron Maybin walked after just three balls were thrown by Seattle’s Doug Fister and came around to score the only run of the game on Alberto Gonzalez’s fifth-inning single, sending the Padres past the Mariners 1-0 on Saturday night.

Fister finally wins again

Doug Fister (3-5) picked up his first victory since April 30, a 4-3 decision for the Seattle Mariners over the Baltimore Orioles on Monday.

Doug Fister, Mariners blank Red Sox for fifth straight victory

BOSTON – Seattle right-hander Doug Fister knew he had some luck on his side against the Red Sox. Fister worked out of trouble three times in 5 2/3 scoreless innings and Seattle’s bullpen continued its solid stretch, lifting the Mariners to a 2-0 win over Boston on Saturday night.

Fister, Mariners blank Red Sox in victory

BOSTON — This game of inches was not breaking the Seattle Mariners’ way in the early going. Seattle had to deal with the third-inning ejection of Milton Bradley after a bad call at first base that he wasn’t involved in, not to mention a handful of questionable strike calls on the outside corner. But the Mariners soon had plenty of bounces and calls going their way in what became a 2-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night that seemed to leave the Fenway Park faithful in a state of shock.

CF Franklin Gutierrez may miss season opener due to illness

PEORIA, Ariz. – Center fielder Franklin Gutierrez is having stomach problems again, and if they’re not settled soon he may not be able to play in the Seattle Mariners’ season opener next Friday at Oakland. Gutierrez hasn’t played since Saturday and the Mariners don’t know when he will play again. With six more exhibition games available for Gutierrez to play before the opener, manager Eric Wedge said time is running out for the 2010 Gold Glove winner to be ready.

Fister struggles early, but Mariners come back against Cubs

PEORIA, Ariz. – Seattle Mariners right-hander Doug Fister knows that when he doesn’t keep the baseball down in the strike zone, he’ll get hit. The Chicago Cubs did that to him Monday, scoring twice in the first inning and threatening with runners in every other inning Fister pitched in his fourth spring training start. His 4 1/3-innings was the longest by a Mariners starter this spring, and his bend-but-not-break outing helped Seattle come back for a 5-3 victory.

Seattle Mariners finally sign fourth-round pick James Paxton

PEORIA, Ariz. – In a season in which the Seattle Mariners are logically – if not quite outwardly – playing for the future, consider James Paxton another intriguing name to watch. Paxton, Seattle’s fourth-round pick in the June 2010 draft, ended a lengthy negotiation when he signed with the M’s on Friday.

Mariners’ Fister, Vargas ready to make starting rotation

PEORIA, Ariz. – For a couple of guys who’ve never enjoyed much job security, the start of the 2011 season is a bit different for both Jason Vargas and Doug Fister. Instead of a year ago when they were a couple of back-end pitchers expected to be part-time fill-ins of the Seattle Mariners pitching staff, Vargas and Fister enter this season almost assured of being in the Mariners rotation.

Fister, Mariners break skids

OAKLAND, Calif. – Doug Fister won for the second time in nearly four months, Adam Moore homered and the Seattle Mariners broke out of a long scoring slump to beat the Oakland Athletics 7-5 on Tuesday night. Fister (5-11) scattered five hits over five innings and pitched out of several jams while leading the Mariners to their first win at the Coliseum since Opening Day. Seattle had lost six straight in Oakland since then.
