Why did the Seattle Mariners hold a players-only meeting? Struggling team still searching for answers


The Seattle Mariners held a players-only meeting prior to their Friday night game against the Tampa Bay Rays. The team has lost seven of its last 10 games and is searching for answers to turn things around.

Seattle has compiled a 38-41 record so far this season. They are currently fourth in the American League West and sit 10 games behind the Texas Rangers, who lead the division.

Seattle had an off day on Thursday, leaving players to think about the team’s lackluster performances thus far. This team meeting is a step in the right direction, but it may be too late.

The team is a few days removed from designating pitcher Chris Flexin for assignment. Flexin was a significant part of the team’s starting rotation but has struggled mightily this season. In 17 games started, he has a 0-4 record with a 7.71 ERA.

The Seattle Mariners had huge expectations coming into the season. Seeing them at the bottom of the division is shocking to many around the league.
