Good morning everyone! Hope you all enjoyed your Mariners off-day and are ready for more baseball today. Here's what you may have missed from the past couple of days:

  • Brad Miller was named as the AL Player of the Week.
  • Jarrod Parker will have surgery on his elbow today.
  • The Astros have called up pitcher Lance McCullers almost straight from Double-A. Chris Mitchell at Fangraphs scouts the Astros' new pitcher.
  • McCullers made the most of his debut, sporting some interesting shoes.
  • Shelby Miller of the Braves was one out away from no-hitting the Marlins.
  • Immediately after a horrible offensive performance, the Marlins' manager was fired.
  • Marlins' General Manager Dan Jennings has appointed himself as manager of the Marlins. Seriously.
  • The mayor of Montreal will meet with Rob Manfred about the possibility of getting a team to the city.
  • Dave Cameron at Fangraphs compares the age-22 seasons of Bryce Harper and Miguel Cabrera.
  • Mat Latos appears to have invented his own pitch.
  • Bruce Chen has decided to retire.
