KEY GAME INFORMATION
MINNESOTA: 2017: 85-77, second place, lost to Yankees in wild-card game.
MANAGER: Paul Molitor (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Lance Lynn, RHP Jake Odorizzi, DH-1B Logan Morrison, RHP Fernando Rodney, RHP Addison Reed, LHP Zach Duke, SS-3B Erick Aybar, RHP Michael Pineda.
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Matt Belisle, RHP Bartolo Colon, C Chris Gimenez, DH-1B Kennys Vargas, LHP Hector Santiago, LHP Glen Perkins, LHP Buddy Boshers, RHP Michael Tonkin.
OUTLOOK: After their massive 26-win turnaround last season, earning Molitor the AL Manager of the Year award and a new contract through the 2020 season, the Twins were already on the upswing with their 25-and-under core of Berrios, Buxton, Sano, Rosario and Kepler. Then, after spring training began, they traded for Odorizzi and signed Morrison and Lynn, all at market-bargain prices. They've already had some setbacks, with finger surgery for Santana expected to keep him out for most or all of April, and the gut-punch news of Polanco's suspension, plus the uncertainty that surrounds Sano. But this is a team, even with the bold offseason moves made by AL heavyweights Boston and New York, and the strength of reigning AL Central champion Cleveland, that has the talent and spunk to be right in the playoff mix. With Hughes and Tyler Duffey on track for long-relief roles and a spate of well-regarded prospects set to fill out the rotation at Triple-A Rochester, this is as much starting pitching depth as the Twins have had in years. After using 16 different starters in 2017, they needed that. Rodney, Reed and Duke were important additions to bolster the bullpen, too, after Minnesota relievers ranked 22nd in the majors with a collective 4.40 ERA.
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
Mariners look for another quality start by Paxton vs. Twins
 

When James Paxton gets in a groove, he really gets in a groove.

The Seattle Mariners left-hander, named the American League Pitcher of the Month last July when he set a franchise record by winning six games, started this month with seven scoreless innings against Oakland in which he struck out a career-high 16.

He followed that with a no-hitter May 8 at Toronto.

After getting a no-decision in a six-inning start in Detroit, Paxton returned home Saturday and pitched a three-hitter in a 7-2 victory over the Tigers.

"It was really cool that I could go out there and get the nine innings with everyone here supporting me," he said after his last start.

Paxton (3-1, 3.30 ERA) hopes to stay in that groove when he faces the Minnesota Twins on Friday night at Safeco Field. The Twins are scheduled to start rookie right-hander Fernando Romero (2-0, 1.66), who will be facing the Mariners for the first time.

"We jumped on his back," Mariners manager Scott Servais said of Paxton's last start. "It's been fun watching it kind of evolve over the last 4-5 outings and taking a next step -- establishing himself as one of the best starters in this league. There's no question about it."

Mariners catcher Mike Zunino agreed.

"He got better throughout the game and I think it just shows what he's becoming as a pitcher," Zunino said. "He's developed over the past couple of years and he's that guy you want to have that ball every fifth day taking you deep into ballgames. Whether he has his best stuff or not, he's going to pitch deep into the game."

Paxton is 2-1 with a 2.91 ERA in four career starts against the Twins, including his infamous April 5 start in which an eagle that was part of the pregame festivities mistook Paxton for his handler and tried to land on his shoulder in the outfield.

Paxton allowed two runs and four hits in five innings that day with one walk and seven strikeouts but didn't get a decision in a 4-2 Minnesota victory.

Even Paxton was a little surprised his last time out when Servais allowed him to go out to the mound in the ninth inning to finish his second career complete game.

"I just stayed focused," said Paxton, who threw 117 pitches. "I was ready to go. I wasn't going to change anything unless they came up to me and wanted me to be done. I was excited to go out and pitch it."

Servais understood the moment and trusted his best pitcher beyond a pitch-count number.

"You are looking at the stuff and how he's handling it and how the hitters are reacting to it," Servais said. "And there's also times when the pitcher on the mound feels it and he's sniffing the finish line and you want to give him every opportunity to get there. I was excited to do that.

"When I shook his hand after the game, he said, 'You let me go,' and I said, 'You earned it,' " Servais said. "He really did. In the seventh, you could see he had the feeling he could finish it, so why not? Let him go."

Romero, who made his major-league debut May 2, didn't allow a run in either of his first two starts, winning both. He gave up one run in his third start and had his worst outing Saturday against Milwaukee when he allowed four runs (three earned) and three hits in five innings.

"Romero has given us a boost," Twins manager Paul Molitor said matter-of-factly, perhaps trying to temper expectations for the team's top pitching prospect.
