KEY GAME INFORMATION
HOUSTON: 2017: 101-61, first place, won World Series.
MANAGER: A.J. Hinch (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Joe Smith, RHP Hector Rondon.
SUBTRACTIONS: DH Carlos Beltran, RHP Luke Gregerson, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Mike Fiers, RHP Michael Feliz, INF Colin Moran.
OUTLOOK: With almost everyone back from last year's championship team, the Astros fully expect to contend for another title. They have a right to be confident with Altuve leading a potent lineup that includes Springer, the World Series MVP, and Correa, a young All-Star shortstop coming off his best season. Their rotation is one of the best in baseball, with Cy Young Award winners Keuchel and Verlander leading the group and new acquisition Cole and young star McCullers following that 1-2 punch. Barring debilitating injuries, the Astros should win the AL West and have an excellent chance to repeat as World Series champs.
SEATTLE: 2017: 78-84, tied for third place.
MANAGER: Scott Servais (third season).
ADDITIONS: CF Dee Gordon, 1B Ryon Healy, RHP Juan Nicasio, INF-OF Andrew Romine, OF Ichiro Suzuki, LHP Dario Alvarez.
SUBTRACTIONS: 1B Yonder Alonso, OF Jarrod Dyson, LHP Drew Smyly, 1B Danny Valencia, C Carlos Ruiz, RHP Yovani Gallardo, RHP Emilio Pagan.
OUTLOOK: The Mariners' odd place in the AL was only amplified by what happened to them in spring training. Injuries illustrated the slim margin they have if they plan to contend for a playoff spot. They're talented enough to compete for a wild card, but probably not good enough to catch the Astros in the division. Pitching will be the key. Seattle used a major league-record 40 pitchers last year and would like to avoid a repeat performance. The bullpen has promise, putting pressure on the rotation to stabilize and get deep enough into games. Right-handed reliever David Phelps needs Tommy John surgery and will miss the entire season, though. Offensively, the top of the lineup has a chance to be potent with the addition of a speedster in Gordon. Healy missed most of spring training after hand surgery, but if he's productive Seattle could end up fielding its deepest lineup in years. That might be necessary with all the pitching questions.
PREVIEW
Tough-luck Astros look to rebound against Mariners
 

Don't expect to see the Houston Astros panic, even though their 2-1 loss to the Seattle Mariners on Monday at Safeco Field was their fifth defeat in their past six games and their vaunted offensive attack has been stymied for much of the first three weeks of the season.

Right-hander Lance McCullers Jr. (1-1, 7.71 ERA) will start game two of the four-game series on Tuesday for the Astros while left-hander Ariel Miranda (0-0) was called up from Triple-A Tacoma and added to the Mariners' 25-man roster to make his season debut.

It's the first time Seattle has needed a fifth starter this season.

The Mariners continued their strong start, improving to 9-5 with their fifth win in their last six games. The Astros have lost three straight, falling to 10-7 and dropping into third place in the early American League West race behind the Angels (13-3) and Mariners.

Monday's win was all about Seattle left-hander James Paxton, who surrendered a leadoff home run to the Astros' George Springer but little else, leaving after six innings in which he allowed three hits and three walks against seven strikeouts.

The Mariners tied the game, 1-1, on Nelson Cruz's third homer of the year in the fourth inning. Seattle took the lead on back-to-back doubles by David Freitas and Dee Gordon and in the sixth.

Edwin Diaz, the fourth Mariners pitcher, notched his seventh save for Seattle.

Houston left-hander Dallas Keuchel allowed two runs on six hits while pitching all eight innings for the Astros. He is still winless in three decisions this season despite a 3.52 ERA.

In the last 16 innings, the Astros' starting pitchers have permitted three earned runs and yielded only nine hits. In return, they've received one run and four hits of backing.

The roster move to get Miranda the start on Tuesday will keep outfielder Ben Gamel in Tacoma for at least the time being. Seattle manager Scott Servais said on Monday that Gamel is healthy enough to return to the big league team, but is in a holding pattern because of the roster situation.

Gamel has already played five games with Modesto and four with Tacoma.

"Ben will play at least one more, maybe a couple more before we bring him back," Servais told MLB.com. "He's in a pretty good spot, ready to come back. We're just trying to do the right things roster-wise, as much as anything. That also plays into it."

McCullers has a 5-2 career record versus Seattle and carries a 2.96 ERA in nine games (all starts against the Mariners). In 2017, he was 2-0 with a 3.86 ERA in four starts against Seattle.

In his last trip to the mound, last Wednesday in Minnesota, McCullers tossed three scoreless innings before allowing eight runs in the fifth inning but did not factor into the Astros' 9-8 loss.

McCullers has exited each of his first three starts without getting through a lineup for a third time. Fourteen hitters in their third plate appearance against him are slashing .769/.786/1.308.

"I'm not happy with the last result and kind of wearing the bullpen out and not going deep," McCullers said. "But I tried something, and obviously, it didn't fit me as a pitcher. I think it was better early than later on (in the season) that I realized that I have to stick to what I do."

Miranda is 1-2 in five career starts against the Astros, with a 4.65 ERA in 31 2/3 innings pitched. That stat line includes a no-decision last September in which he gave up one run (and no hits) in six innings of work.
