The first game of the highly-anticipated 2022 Seattle Mariners season will have to wait an extra day.

Servais: Robbie Ray perfect example of what M’s preach to pitchers

The Mariners’ opening day matchup against the Minnesota Twins has been moved from Thursday afternoon to 1:10 p.m. Friday due to inclement weather in the forecast in Minneapolis.

The game will air live on Seattle Sports 710 AM, as well as streaming through and the Seattle Sports mobile app for those within our terrestrial radio range. Coverage will begin at noon Friday with the pregame show.

Friday’s game will mark the official Mariners debut of several key players, including new ace and reigning American League Cy Young Award winner Robbie Ray, All-Star trade acquisitions Jesse Winker, Adam Frazier and Eugenio Suárez, and Baseball America’s No. 2 overall prospect Julio Rodríguez.

The Mariners are coming off their first 90-win season since 2003 and are expected to make a serious run at ending their playoff drought that extends back to 2002.

The Twins are set to start rookie Joe Ryan, MLB Pipeline’s No. 97 overall prospect, in the opener.

The four-game series will go through Monday, with the Mariners then travelling to Chicago for a three-game set against the White Sox before they return to T-Mobile Park for their home-opening series against the Houston Astros starting Friday, April 15.

All Mariners games will be carried live on Seattle Sports 710 AM, with coverage starting roughly an hour before with the pregame show.
