Young impresses Mariners in 2-1 loss to Rockies
COLORADO 2, SEATTLE 1

By MIKE CRANSTON
Associated Press

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Chris Young tossed shutout ball in his
Seattle debut Saturday, providing a much-needed pitching boost
for the Mariners as they closed spring training with a 2-1 loss
to the Colorado Rockies.

With pitchers Hisashi Iwakuma, Taijuan Walker and Stephen Pryor
all sidelined, the Mariners signed Young on Thursday after he
was released by Washington. The 34-year-old right-hander allowed
four hits, struck out two and issued no walks in 4 2-3 innings
as he moves into a rotation spot.

The 6-foot-10 right-hander last pitched in the majors in 2012.

"Really doesn't matter if I'm ready or not. We've got to do it,"
Young said. "But I am. I'm excited to be back out there. It's
been a while for me. I welcome the opportunity."

Kyle Seager's RBI single in the second was the lone run off
Rockies starter Franklin Morales. He worked around five walks
and three hits in 5 1-3 innings, a day after he was selected as
the fifth starter.

Seattle newcomer Robinson Cano struck out and flied out before
exiting in the third, finishing with a .412 spring average.

Brandon Barnes' RBI single off Joe Beimel in the seventh snapped
the tie.

STARTING TIME

Mariners: Young threw 64 pitches before throwing another 15 in
the bullpen.

"I thought he tired a little bit at the end, but I was pleased
with what I saw," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "He's
the guy I remembered."

Rockies: Control issues have hurt Morales in a few spring
outings.

"He still has enough stuff where he can deal with some traffic
and strike guys out," manager Walt Weiss said. "But he didn't
have good command today."

CHATWOOD OK

Rockies right-hander Tyler Chatwood was confident what he called
a "minor" left hamstring strain wouldn't keep him from
Wednesday's start.

"I think I'm fine," Chatwood said before playing catch and
riding an exercise bike.

Chatwood said he slipped on some loose dirt while running out a
triple Friday against Seattle.

"A double would have been fine," pitching coach Jim Wright said.

But Chatwood had no regrets.

"It's just how I was raised to play," Chatwood said. "I'm not
going to dwell on anything."

Wright said they would hold back Jordan Lyles, who was sent to
Triple-A on Friday, in case Chatwood's recovery stalls.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Mariners: DH Corey Hart (forearm) went 0 for 3 in his first
major league game since March 20, but McClendon said he's ready
for Monday's opener.

Rockies: Right-hander Jhoulys Chacin (shoulder) is scheduled to
stay in Arizona and throw 20-25 pitches in a batting practice
Monday. Chacin is expected to return in early May.

ROSTER MOVES

The Mariners officially put Iwakuma (finger), Walker (shoulder)
and Pryor (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list, all
retroactive to March 21. All are expected back in mid- to
late-April.

The Rockies set their roster, confirming they're keeping six
outfielders (Michael Cuddyer, Carlos Gonzalez, Drew Stubbs,
Charlie Blackmon, Corey Dickerson and Barnes). Infielder Paul
Janish was released.

KAHNLE MAKES IT

Three things struck Wright as he watched Rule 5 draft pick Tommy
Kahnle this spring.

"I was surprised at his ability to throw strikes this camp,"
Wright said. "I didn't know he had such a good changeup. And I
didn't know that he didn't have a breaking ball."

Wright said Kahnle's slider wasn't effective, so he worked on
changing the grip and he tested it out for the first time in a
game Friday.

"I tell you what, he broke out a slider that he never had
before," Wright said. "So I'm encouraged."

Encouraged enough that the right-handed reliever, a former
Yankees prospect, made Colorado's 25-man roster despite not
having pitched above Double-A.

"A dream come true," Kahnle said.

UP NEXT

The Mariners were flying to Los Angeles immediately after the
game. They'll hold a workout Sunday before Monday's opener
against the Angels.

Due to a hotel issue, the Rockies were not leaving for Miami
until Sunday morning to play the Marlins in their opener Monday.
