Lookout Linkage, 5/1/14

News and stories about the Seattle Mariners and other analysis from around the league.

Man, that sure was an exciting game last night. Hopefully these links will take your mind off what transpired.

  • Hisashi Iwakuma pitched his first rehab start in Tacoma. Here's the story on how he did.
  • Lone Star Ball takes a look at each of the Rangers' injured players who might return soon and what their current status is like.
  • Athletics Nation thinks the recently-acquired Fernando Abad might be the best reliever on the A's.
  • A's starter A.J. Griffin will undergo Tommy John Surgery.
  • Speaking of, Tyler Drenon of MLB Daily Dish has compiled a list of pitchers who have undergone Tommy John Surgery so far this season. No M's (yet), but two of them are ex-Mariner minor leaguers.
  • Michael Pineda can't appear to catch a break these days. It looks like he'll probably be headed for the DL again.
  • This is a bit of old news, but the Marlins have called up Carter Capps. Here's a quick link to his Fangraphs profile if you're curious.
  • MLB Daily Dish examines who won the Dexter Fowler trade.
  • Grant Brisbee has some fun with vintage baseball photos.
  • Reds' Sonic-the-Hedgehog-esque stud Billy Hamilton continues to amaze. This time, it's not in the way you might expect.
  • Carson Cistulli has his weekly Fringe Five baseball prospects and my absolute favorite Mariner "prospect" is included in the list.
  • It looks like the Angels might be a team to watch out for again, says Dave Cameron of Fangraphs.
  • I know you're probably sick of this story, but here's a different angle for it: Grant Brisbee explores what would happen if Donald Sterling owned an MLB team.
  • Dave Szymborski has a piece on The Hardball Times about ten things he learned in creating a projection system (he's the creator of ZiPS, for those who do not know).
  • There is so much wrong with what happened here.
