Padres option Brandon Maurer, Kevin Quackenbush to Triple-A


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) The Padres have optioned pitchers Brandon Maurer and Kevin Quackenbush to Triple-A El Paso, the team announced Sunday.

Quackenbush was competing for a role in the bullpen, but San Diego acquired closer Craig Kimbrel Sunday, forcing an arm out of the selection. He posted a 3.72 ERA with nine strikeouts and two walks in 10 appearances this spring. Maurer posted a 3.86 ERA with five strikeouts and one walk in seven spring training appearances.


Padres' Brandon Maurer tosses scoreless inning in return


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Padres pitcher Brandon Maurer allowed one hit and one walk Wednesday but tossed a scoreless inning in his return from a back injury.

Maurer was making just his second appearance of the spring due to a sore back.

"It was good to see him out there and turning the ball loose," manager Bud Black said after the game, per MLB.com. "He was a little rusty and not dotting the ball like he can. But he's healthy."

Black noted earlier in March that he could get a look as a starting pitcher at some point. Maurer went 1-4 with a 4.65 ERA and 55:19 K:BB ratio in 69 2/3 innings with Seattle last season.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2015) A sore back has prevented Padres pitcher Brandon Maurer from playing over the last few days, reports U-T San Diego.

Manager Bud Black said Maurer would throw a bullpen session Monday or Tuesday and could possibly pitch in Tuesday's split-squad game.

"He's getting closer," Black said. "But he has had a little bit of a back issue. We've just been real cautious with it knowing there's plenty of time left here this spring."


Padres not ruling out starting Brandon Maurer


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2015) Padres manager Bud Black said pitcher Brandon Maurer has stood out during spring training and would not rule out Maurer moving to the starting rotation, reports U-T San Diego.

Mariners trade Brandon Maurer to Padres for Seth Smith


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

In 2014, the right-handed Maurer went 1-4 with a 4.65 ERA and fills the Padres’ need for bullpen help. The left-handed-hitting Smith hit .266 with 12 homeruns and 48 RBI in 136 games.

Maurer posted a 7.52 ERA and 17:14 K:BB ratio in 32 1/3 innings over seven starts earlier in the season. He's expected to pitch out of the bullpen for the time being after mostly filling that role with Tacoma, where he posted a 2.79 ERA and 24:8 K:BB ratio in 19 1/3 innings over 12 appearances (one start).

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) The Mariners have announced a pair of roster moves prior to Friday's game against the Tigers, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Brandon Maurer dealing with back pain


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Mariners pitcher Brandon Maurer will undergo an MRI on his back, according to the Seattle Times on Friday. His status remains uncertain for Tuesday's scheduled start in Atlanta.

Maurer dropped his fourth straight decision Thursday night against the Angels, surrendering five runs on six hits and four walks while striking out two over four innings. During his four-start skid covering 19 1/3 innings, Maurer has allowed 15 earned runs.

Brandon Maurer might have made last start for Mariners


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Mariners struggling starter Brandon Maurer might have lost his place in the rotation if the words of Lloyd McClendon are any indication.

Maurer is 1-4 with a 7.52 ERA after a pounding Thursday against the Angels. He has worked more than five innings just once in seven starts - and he gave up 14 hits in losing that one.

"When you look at options, you have to sit down and make sure you have a viable option," McClendon told the Tacoma News-Tribune. "That's something (GM Jack Zduriencik) and I will talk about and see where we go from there."

Maurer is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday in Atlanta. The impending return off the disabled list of Taijuan Walker and James Paxton at least sometime next month will likely knock Maurer out of the rotation at some point anyway.


Brandon Maurer drops fourth straight decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Mariners pitcher Brandon Maurer (1-4) continued to struggle on Thursday, dropping his fourth straight decision in his team's 7-5 defeat to the Angels. The right-hander permitted five runs on six hits and four walks while striking out two over four innings.

During his four-start skid covering 19 1/3 innings, Maurer has allowed 15 earned runs. His ERA has ballooned from 6.92 to 7.52 over that span. He will look to get back on track Tuesday at Atlanta.

Maurer (1-3) gave up a two-run home run to rookie George Springer in the first inning to start the scoring, and his night was ended when Springer launched another two-run shot in the fifth inning. Maurer owns an ugly 6.99 ERA and 15:10 K:BB ratio in 28 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to take on the Angels Thursday.


Mariners tweak starting rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Mariners will open a two-game series against the Rangers in Texas with Hisashi Iwakuma on Tuesday and Chris Young on Wednesday.

Maurer (1-2) walked three straight batters in the fourth inning, with the third walk bringing in a run. After Maurer was removed, the next pitcher uncorked a wild pitch to bring another run home that was charged to the starter. Maurer owns a 6.00 ERA and 13:9 K:BB ratio in 24 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rangers next Wednesday, though the Mariners could adjust the rotation with two off days on the horizon.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Maurer pitched a season-high 7 1/3 innings, his first time pitching past the fifth in four starts. He allowed six runs -- four earned -- while the Royals tagged him for 14 hits. He had no strikeouts or walks on 97 pitches in the loss, his first of the season.

Maurer dropped to 1-1 with the start, while his ERA actually fell slightly, to 6.20. He has allowed 29 hits in 20 1/3 innings heading into his next start, scheduled for Wednesday against the Rays.  


Brandon Maurer escapes uneven outing with win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Brandon Maurer was not at his best on Sunday against the Astros, but received more than enough run support in order to pick up his first win of the season. The right-hander permitted four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings of an 8-7 win in Houston.

Maurer (1-0) tossed 88 pitches, 53 for strikes, as his ERA now stands at 6.92 through three starts. He has a 10:5 K:BB ratio over 13 innings. His next start will come Friday at home against Kansas City.

Brandon Maurer hit hard in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Maurer permitted five runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out three in 3 2/4 innings pitched. He tossed 77 pitches, 49 for strikes.

Brandon Maurer decent over 4 1/3 innings Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Brandon Maurer lasted just 4 1/3 innings in his season debut Sunday against the Marlins, but he pitched well despite throwing just 63 pitches (36 strikes). The right-handed hurler allowed just one run on two hits and two walks, while striking out four.

Maurer began his afternoon with a strikeout of Christian Yelich in the first inning. He had 1-2-3 innings in the second, third and fourth innings.

Maurer ran into a bit of trouble in the fifth inning, however, and was lifted after Donovan Solano's RBI single with one out. Solano was the third straight runner to reach base. However, reliever Dominic Leone was able to strand both inherited runners after replacing Maurer.

The Mariners have an off-day Thursday, which means the team could skip Maurer in the rotation. If he is not skipped, then his next start will be Saturday against the Rangers.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Mariners looking internally for Sunday starter


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said Wednesday that the team's Sunday starter "will probably be one of our guys internally," the Tacoma News-Tribune reports.

Maurer allowed one run on two hits and a walk, while striking out three and throwing 49 pitches in two innings. He is expected to work his way back to a full-time starting role after a handful of shorter outings, though there is no timeline for a possible return to the majors.
