The Seattle Mariners are finally in the MLB Post Season after a 21-year drought and will be battling it out against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Center in Downtown Toronto.


This will be Seattle's first time in Canada for the post-season making this their 5th time in the playoffs and Toronto's 10th time in the playoffs and having two world series championships under their belt. The wild card is a best out of three games with the winner going against the Houston Astros for the Division Title the last stop before the World Series. If the Mariners defeat the Blue Jays in Canada this weekend they would then advance to a best-of-five series against the Houston Astros. Seattle would be guaranteed to host the Blue Jays at for least one game in the series (Game 3) if the series is tied 1-1.


According to the AP, The Mariners are still deciding whether to add minor league prospect Cade Marlowe to the playoff roster, even though the speedy outfielder has yet to make his big league debut. Marlowe hit 23 home runs and stole 42 bases at Triple-A Tacoma this season. He could be a replacement for Sam Haggerty, currently out with a strained left groin.

Mariners president Jerry Dipoto said Marlowe “does a little bit of everything,” but singled out his baserunning and defensive abilities. “In the postseason, those are really key things to have in terms of bench impact,” Dipoto said. “I don’t know that you can make more impact off a bench than being able to put a plus defender out, or someone who can go steal a base. Cade can do those things and he can also hit the ball over the fence. We think he has a skill set that can impact a short series.”
