The Seattle Mariners are one team that has come out of the gates playing above expectations so far and have continued to keep themselves relevant through the first month of the season. After experiencing a couple of impactful injuries during Spring Training, many people expected them to have the same injury fate that they have every season, but so far, that has not been the case.

It's been about a month since Opening Day officially happened and we have already seen plenty of exciting things both on and off the field. As is the case every year, we go into the season with a certain set of expectations and most of the time those expectations are met in terms of teams performing the way we expect them to or certain players/pitchers performing up to their capabilities, but there are always a handful of surprises and this year is no different.
While it's still early, there's already been at least 5 relievers that have quietly performed at a very high level and seem to be flying under-the-radar. As always, those are the type of pitchers that are the best to showcase because they are not getting the recognition that they desperately deserve.
