Seattle Mariners OF Greg Halman looked very poised and patient at the plate in his debut with the team Sunday, June 5. "He had a great day," manager Eric Wedge said. "Greg was very under control up there. There's a lot of ability in there, a lot of power, a lot of explosiveness. You watch his BP, and you look at him up there today. He was very disciplined, but up there ready to hit. It's great to see him come out and perform the way he did today."
Halman could become more than just a sub for OF Franklin Gutierrez if he continues to play the way he did Sunday. If Halman earns his way into the starting lineup more, it could come at the expense of OF Mike Wilson.
