    Passan: Mariners have right plan for Kelenic; a Tatís deal won't happen

    The Mariners are hoping third time is the charm when it comes to young outfielder Jarred Kelenic. Kelenic, 23, is heading into his third MLB season and the hope for him and the Mariners is that the bat comes around. Kelenic made his MLB debut back in May of 2021 but has overall struggled at the plate, resulting in multiple demotions back to Triple-A. This year, Kelenic will compete for a roster spot in spring training and if he wins that as expected, he'll be part of a platoon with veteran AJ Pollock in left field.

On the night of his callup, a 0-4 loss to the Red Sox, Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said: “He got a couple of hits, putting the ball in play...You couldn't ask for anything more out of him.” For the next several years of La Stella's major-league career, this would be the common refrain: he would get a couple of hits, put the ball in play, walk almost as often as he struck out, and get on base.
