Scott Baker vs. John Danks

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Scott Baker velocity-watch resumes today, as Baker takes the mound for another appearance. He was hovering around 90 his last start out, so it'll be interesting to see if he ramps it up again or if that's as good as it gets. Either way, it's encouraging after he averaged just 88.4 mph last year in his rehab appearance where he was mostly ineffective. Baker needs to get back to ~91 to be where he was in 2011 and before.

Taijuan Walker's game of catch went off without a hitch today, which is obviously good news. He'll keep tossing for a while longer, and then he'll eventually ramp things up as long as there's no stiffness or pain. He's far from out of the woods, but one day at a time is all you can ask for.

Jesus Montero is at first base today, which makes me angry that I can't watch this on television. If there's any highlights/lowlights of his defense that the Mariners make available, I'll be sure to provide them.
