The Seattle Mariners are hoping that they made enough moves during the off-season to secure their first playoff berth in over a decade. Seattle added some lineup protection for Robinson Cano by inking Nelson Cruz to a four-year contract. As a member of the Baltimore Orioles, Cruz hit an American League high 40 home runs last season. Felix Hernandez has anchored Seattle’s starting rotation for nearly a decade, but improvements from James Paxton and Taijuan Walker will be key. Paxton and Walker are high-upside, strikeout pitchers that will help take pressure off of Hernandez. To date, Seattle is 9-10 in Cactus League play. They’ll have to play better during the regular season. An overview of April ticket prices is presented below.
Seattle will play twelve home games during April. According to TicketIQ, tickets on the Mariners schedule during April have an average price of $49. Opening Day, which features an intriguing matchup against Los Angeles on April 6th, features the highest ticket prices during April. The average price for Mariners Opening Day tickets is $119.23 while the get-in price is $48. The next most expensive home game during April features a matchup against Texas on April 18th. The average ticket price for this matchup is $58.12 while the get-in price is $11. The least expensive home game during April features a matchup against Houston on April 20th. The average ticket price for this matchup is $35 while the get-in price is $6.
Expectations are high for the 2015 Seattle Mariners. Seattle has the pitchers compete in the American League West, but its lineup must produce more runs. The addition of Cruz coupled with the presence of Robinson Cano and Kyle Seager should hopefully generate more runs.
