The Mariners have released their annual commercials featuring members of the team.

Drayer: Felix says he’ll be ready for start of Mariners’ season

Here’s a quick breakdown of this year’s five TV spots:

• Nelson Cruz is the reason for an opposing pitcher’s work-related injury.

• Felix Hernandez and Mike Zunino display the art of framing to the amazement of Jean Segura, Dee Gordon and (less so) Mitch Haniger.

• James Paxton’s “The Big Maple” nickname is explained to newcomer Ryon Healy by Nick Vincent.

• Robinson Cano wastes one of an opposing team’s six mound visits.

• Kyle Seager gets some hair-flip tips from Ben Gamel.

As in previous years, the ads are the product of a creative collaboration between the Mariners and Seattle agency Copacino+Fujikado.
