by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/23/2015) The Mariners' closer situation has been in flux all season, and with the release of former closer Fernando Rodney, it looks as if Seattle will turn to Tom Wilhelmsen to finish out games. Wilhelmsen picked up his third save of the season Sunday, quashing a White Sox rally to help Seattle avoid a sweep. 

Wilhelmsen served as Seattle's closer in the 2012-13 seasons, combining for 54 saves, so he's no stranger to high-pressure situations. Sunday, Wilhelmsen retired the Sox in order on just 11 pitches to earn his first save since Aug. 2.

“It was good to see batters and how my stuff looks with a batter in there from both sides,” Wilhelmsen said. “I felt free and easy today. I threw all my pitches and everything felt good. We’ll figure out the next step a little later.”

"I'm feeling loads better," Wilhelmsen said. "All the fluid from the MRI is finally out of my arm. I was expecting to throw about a week after it happened, but they put the ink in there, and that lingers. Today is the first day where I haven't had any aches or anything due to it."

He is hoping to throw Friday.

"Structurally, everything is strong and secure, and I'm good to go," he said. "The plan now is to throw maybe Friday."

Mariners RHP Tom Wilhelmsen loses arbitration case


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) Mariners right-hander Tom Wilhelmsen lost his arbitration case against the club, and will be awarded $1.4 million this season, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman on Saturday. He initially asked for $2.2 million.

Mariners' McClendon toying with idea of using Wilhelmsen as starter


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) The acquisition of J.A. Happ means Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon doesn't have to head into spring training with long reliever Tom Wilhelmsen competing for a spot in the rotation.

However, McClendon hasn't totally given up on the idea of Wilhelmsen potentially transitioning to a starting role down the road, per MLB.com.

"I don't think it's totally dead," McClendon said. "I would say it's probably a long shot. My plan, as we speak right now, is to maybe stretch him out in spring and just play with it a little bit and see what happens, but I think it's a long shot. He was just so good in the role he was in, it'd be hard to take him out of that role."

Wilhelmsen pitched multiple innings in 24 of his 57 appearances last year. The former closer went 3-2 with a 2.27 ERA and 72 strikeouts in 79 1/3 innings.

"I really tried not to change anything at all, [other than] try to simplify a little bit," Wilhelmsen said. "If I was going in in the fourth inning, I knew I'd have to throw two or three innings and I just really attacked the zone. But it's not like you don't attack the zone any other time. It's the same thing. You have to get outs."
