The AL West gets to action right away with the Texas Rangers hosting the Seattle Mariners. Seattle was one of the bigger disappointments of last season finishing 10 games under .500 and 4th place in the division.
The Mariners have won 4 of their last 5 games facing the Rangers and they are 9-4 in their last 13 games facing them in Texas.
The Rangers won the AL West last season going 88-74.
In Spring Training the Mariners went 16-14 and the Rangers went 17-15.
It is no surprise that the Mariners were 10 games under .500 last season since they only ranked 21st in runs scored and 22nd in team ERA.
The Mariners made several moved in the off-season to shake up their lineup and former Ranger Leonys Martin will be taking over at CF. The main players are still Robinson Cano, Kyle Seager, and Nelson Cruz, who has at least 40 HR in each of the last 2 seasons.
The main reason that the Mariners are only slight betting underdogs in this game s that they have former Cy Young winner Felix Hernandez on the hill.
While he did win 18 games last season, which was the 2nd most in his career and most since 2009 he posted an ERA of 3.53, which was his highest since the 2007 season.
The Mariners are 5-0 in their last 5 games facing the Rangers when Fernandez has gotten the start.
Seattle is 21-7 in their last 28 games with Fernandez facing teams from the AL West.
In their last Spring Training game the Mariners beat the Colorado Rockies 8-5.
The Rangers mainly won last season because of their offense, which ranked 3rd in the Majors in runs scored while they only ranked 23rd in team ERA.
However, their pitching should be better this season with Yu Darvish coming back and Cole Hammels, who gets the start in this game, with the team for the whole season.
Texas has a solid lineup, especially in the middle with the likes of Prince Fielder and Adrian Beltre. They also signed Ian Desmond in the off-season and he his .290 with 19 HR and 62 RBI.
Cole Hamels has been ill for the last few days, but should be ready for this opening day game. After going 6-7 for the Phillies last season he went 7-1 with an ERA of 3.66 when he came to Texas before the trade deadline.
The Rangers have won 11 of their last 12 games when Hamels has gotten the start and their last 6 when he has gotten the start at home.
In their last Spring Training game the Rangers lost to the Cleveland Indians 3-1. Texas only scored 2 runs combined in their last 2 games of Spring Training.
