It is fair to say that the Seattle Mariners 2023 Major League Baseball season has not gone how many people would have predicted it to go. After two consecutive seasons of winning more than 90 games and making a playoff appearance last season, they have regressed up until this point of the year. They have a long way to go if they want to get themselves back in the playoff contention in the American League and the hill climbs that much tougher this season as both the Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels are much improved within their division. It is awaiting to be seen if they will make any moves at the trade deadline in the coming days but one thing is certain there are certainly some things they could do to improve their team and give themselves a bigger chance at making a run at the postseason this year.
Luis Castillo is expected to take the mound for the Seattle Mariners in the finale of the series on Sunday afternoon. His season is trending the same way as the Seattle Mariners season has been trending as he was expected to be solid, but he has been a little bit better than average up until this point of the year. Him and the Seattle Mariners will be looking to get things back on track with a statement victory here on Sunday afternoon on the road as the trade deadline is looming and the calendar prepares to turn to August. Castillo comes into this game with a record of 6-7 on the year and the Seattle Mariners come into this game with a record of 53-51 through their first 104 games of the 2023 Major League Baseball season.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have been one of the biggest surprises in Major League Baseball, and they will be looking to keep the momentum rolling in the finale of the series against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday afternoon at home. They held onto the top spot in the National League West division for the majority of the first half of the season before relinquishing the spot to the Los Angeles Dodgers heading into the All-Star break. Despite struggling before and after coming out of the All-Star break, they are still in a prime position to make a playoff run this season. However, they will have to clean up their act and get their season back on track if they want to have an opportunity to win a World Series this year.
Merrill Kelly is expected to make his second start since returning from injury and in his last start he picked up right where he left off before heading to the injured list earlier this season. He will be looking to replicate that performance as he gets the start here on Sunday against a struggling Seattle Mariners team and if he looks anything like he has all year long, it’s going to be a long day for the Seattle Mariners lineup. Kelly comes into this game with a record of 9-4 on the year and the Arizona Diamondbacks come into this game with a record of 56-49 through their first 105 games of the 2023 Major League Baseball season.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Arizona is 19-12 as a home favorite this season
- Luis Castillo is 1-4 on the road this season
- Seattle is 24-26 on the road this season
I expect the Arizona Diamondbacks to grab the victory in this game on Sunday afternoon against the Seattle Mariners. With Merrill Kelly taking the mound it gives the Arizona Diamondbacks the advantage in the starting pitching matchup for this one on Sunday. They also have tons of momentum coming into this one after their victory on Saturday night, and I expect them to parlay that into a much needed victory here on Sunday.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
