The Mariners called up their best hitting and pitching prospects on May 13th, and they all made their debuts on the same day.
Gilbert was joined by OF Jarred Kelenic, who was also drafted in 2018, but eight spots ahead of Logan, before being acquired in the Edwin Diaz/Robinson Canó exchange.
Writers were eager to point out that the Mariners were ushering in a new era by doing so, and that the day would likely be remembered as a watershed moment in the team’s history.
They were also lowering the strain on each of them by having both coveted possibilities open at the same time.
He opened the game for the Mariners against the Cleveland Indians and gave up four runs in four innings, but his opponent on the mound, Zach Plesac, stole the show by pitching a no-hitter into the eighth inning in a 4-2 victory.
Logan was held accountable for the theft. In his first season, he finished 6-5 with a 4.68 ERA in 24 starts, pitching 119 1/3 innings and striking out 128 batters against 28 walks in a respectable showing on a club that largely exceeded expectations, ending just outside the playoffs.
Both he and the Mariners had a strong start to the season in 2022. He went 3-0 with a 0.40 ERA in four starts in April, striking out 22 batters in 22 1/3 innings to win the American League Pitcher of the Month award.
