A banner year for the Mariners as Seattle produced a then club-record 78 wins behind two young All-Stars in pitcher Mark Langston and infielder Harold Reynolds. The dominant Langston was 19-13 with a 3.84 ERA, while the speedy Reynolds stole a club-record 60 bases. It was also the year Ken Griffey Jr. entered Seattle's minor league system and Edgar Martinez made his way to the Major Leagues.  1987 stats >

1988  - Slugger Jay Buhner came to Seattle from the New York Yankees in what turned out to be one of the most lopsided trades in club history. Harold Reynolds tallied another All-Star appearance and Jim Snyder took over as manager in June. Seattle finished sixth in the AL West, posting a 68-93 record.  1988 stats >
1989  - A young Ken Griffey Jr. impressed new manager Jim Lefebvre during Spring Training, making the Opening Day roster and launching a new era in Mariners baseball. Junior tattooed his mark on the club immediately, hitting his first ML home run on the first pitch he saw at the Kingdome. The Big Unit, Randy Johnson, also arrived, going 7-9 with a 4.40 ERA. Seattle was 73-89 on the year.  1989 stats >
1990  - In what was described as a ragged but dominant performance, LHP Randy Johnson recorded the club's first no-hitter on June 2, defeating the Detroit Tigers with a six-walk, 136-pitch outing. Family history was next on the list as Ken Griffey Jr. and Ken Griffey Sr. became the first father and son to play together on the same team.  1990 stats >
1991  - For the first time in club history the Seattle Mariners finished the season above .500 taking home a modest 83-79 record. Ken Griffey Jr. was named to his second All-Star Game and also brought home the club's first Silver Slugger Award, hitting .327 with 22 home runs and 100 RBIs. Seattle placed fifth in the AL West at 83-79.  1991 stats >
