"This is the place to find out if I can trust that pitch when I need it later on," he said. "I threw it quite a bit today in situations I wouldn't normally throw it. That's the luxury of spring training. The outcome doesn't matter so you have the options to work on things a little different from the norm."

The fans -- there doesn't ever seem to be too many of them -- but the ones that are here are loud and in the game and good fans. It's always going to be a little special to me because it's where I started."

Mariners rotation shuffled again

Washburn tries to go five innings
(3/19/2007) With less than two weeks left in spring training, Jarrod Washburn can't wait for the games to count.

Washburn yielded four hits before he was pulled with a runner on third base. He threw 85 pitches. Seattle manager Mike Hargrove wants his starters to be able to throw 100 by opening day. Washburn was supposed to be on a 75-pitch limit, but he reached that in the fourth inning. So Hargrove sent him out for the fifth. "Sure, I could have gone more, but there's no reason to push it," said Washburn, who had one of the worst seasons of his 10-year career in 2006, going 8-14 with a 4.67 ERA in his Seattle debut.

Washburn wants to be team leader
(2/18/2007) No longer a newcomer, Mariners SP Jarrod Washburn is determined to take a more vocal role with Seattle, which has three new starters in its rotation and is in desperate need of some leadership. In 2006, his first season of a four-year, $37 million contract, Washburn went from a World Series winner and outspoken team leader to a forgotten loser with the last-place Mariners. After going 75-57 in eight seasons with the Angels, Washburn went 8-14 for Seattle. The fly-ball pitcher watched 25 fly out for home runs in 31 starts. His 4.67 ERA was his highest for a season in which he had more than 10 major league starts. And he was a non-factor in a lifeless Mariners clubhouse. The rural Wisconsin native often sat alone, reading hunting magazines and watching silently as his teammates meandered aimlessly around him. Washburn is ready to be more of a presence this year for a team that has been far too quiet while finishing last in the AL West for three consecutive seasons. "I've always been on teams where someone said what needed to be said. Last year, we didn't have that," Washburn said. "Now, I'm more comfortable (doing that)."
Washburn likely done for season
(9/20/2006) Mariners pitcher Jarrod Washburn will probably miss the rest of the season due to a torn right calf muscle. Asked if Washburn is done for the season, manager Mike Hargrove said, "I would think probably. I can't say for certain, but I would say things are pointing that way." Team medical personnel told Washburn surgery will not be necessary. Washburn said the healing process is two to six weeks. "I felt a pop and heard a pop. It was loud," Washburn said. Hargrove said right-handers Joel Pineiro and Travis Chick are candidates to take Washburn's scheduled turn on Sunday in Chicago against the White Sox.

Washburn may be 2-start sleeper
(8/28/2006) This could be one of those weeks Felix Hernandez gets a start off. Hernandez starts Monday, but Tuesday starter Jarrod Washburn could go Sunday on regular rest. Manager Mike Hargrove said the 20-year-old RHP Hernandez would probably need to be skipped in the rotation at least once, and possibly twice, before the end of the season to keep him under the 200-inning threshold the organization would like. Hernandez, who'll start on Monday night against the Angels, has pitched 151 2/3 innings in 25 starts. He is 10-12 with a 4.81 ERA.
Washburn beats Big Unit
(8/25/2006) Jarrod Washburn was so good he reminded the opposing pitcher of a former Mariners ace. Washburn continued his Yankee taming by allowing just six hits and striking out a season-high nine in the Mariners' 4-2 win over New York on Thursday night. "He looked like Randy Johnson out there. The only thing that was missing was the Kingdome roof out there," the Big Unit said chuckling. "Randy was great," Yankees manager Joe Torre said. Washburn (7-12) was better. He allowed six hits, two runs and two walks in 6 1/3 innings. With two runners on, he struck out Bobby Abreu and Jason Giambi in succession to end the third inning.
Washburn starts Thurs. or Fri.
(8/21/2006) The Mariners have TBD's for their rotation Wednesday and Thursday. They need a starter after the trade of Jamie Moyer and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports Felix Hernandez could be "skipped" Thursday. Jarrod Washburn could pitch that day on regular rest, but Hernandez's turn will have to come before the end of the week. So, Hernandez might not start against the Yankees, but he likely will against the Red Sox. Also, the Seattle Times reports Cha-Seung Baek could be given Moyer's rotation spot over arbritration-eligible Joel Pineiro, but a decision won't be finalized before Tuesday.

(8/9/2006) Jarrod Washburn knew what was going on. "I'm not going to lie," he said. "I'm not one of those guys that says, 'Oh, I didn't even know.' I knew it." Washburn didn't allow a hit until Ben Zobrist's bunt single leading off the sixth inning to lead the Seattle Mariners over the Tampa Bay Devil Rays 2-0 Wednesday for a three-game sweep. "I can't be upset about that," Washburn said. "He is trying to make something happen for his team. Maybe if that was the eighth or ninth, that would have rubbed me the wrong way." Washburn allowed three hits in 6 2/3 innings, struck out four and walked one, leaving after retiring Jonny Gomes on a flyout with two on in the seventh. "The defense played great for me -- like they have all season long," Washburn said. "Which is key for me, because I don't strike many people out."
Washburn drops his 11th game

I felt so good early in the season, I thought I could do that, throw fastballs as hard I could and get away with it," Washburn said. Washburn won consecutive starts for the first time since May 1.

(3/23/2001) Washburn, out since Monday because of strep throat, a severe fever, fatigue and body aches, would be scratched Saturday from his second consecutive exhibition start. He was penciled in as the Opening Day starter but his current health status won't allow him to build up his stamina enough for that. Don't spend too much on Washburn.
(3/22/2001) The Los Angeles Times reports that Washburn has been sidelined for three days with an illness, and he underwent blood tests on Wednesday to determine whether he has mononucleosis. He will receive the results back in about a week, and his scheduled Opening Day start Apr. 3 is now in jeopardy after he was scratched from Monday's exhibition game. If Washburn can't make his next scheduled start, it's unlikely he'll have enough stamina to open the season, so temper your bids for now.

Get him at the end of your auction if you are interested in acquiring him.

(2/2/1999) Washburn may have to look good in the spring if he wants to begin the season in the majors. Washburn didn't put up bad numbers in his rookie year, but he didn't fool too many hitters. He does have good control and the ability to reach double figures in wins over a full season. But he will have to outplay a few other possible starters before the regular season begins. Last year, in 11 major-league starts, he did allow less than one hit per inning and managed to keep his ERA under 5.00.
