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

Good morning everyone! Today is an off-day which means the league gets a break from the Mariners crushing their hopes and dreams. I think it's only fair to give them a rest. In the meantime, here's what's happening in baseball:

  • Joaquin Benoit looks ready to return to action soon.
  • Eno Sarris talks about something Taijuan Walker has improved on.
  • Andrelton Simmons will be out a while and will require thumb surgery.
  • The Angels have acquired infielder Brendan Ryan to fill their shortstop vacancy.
  • The Angels also acquired pitcher Jhoulys Chacin.
  • The Cubs might be flawless, writes Dave Cameron.
  • Max Scherzer had a crazy impressive outing last night.
  • MLB Daily Dish takes a look at some of the top trade candidates for the summer.
  • The Nationals signed Stephen Strasburg to a huge extension.
  • Noah Syndergaard had a ridiculous game too, but for different reasons.
  • August Fagerstrom thinks Strasburg deserves more credit.
  • Bryce Harper has been suspended for one game for an altercation with an umpire.
  • Raul Mondesi has been suspended for 50 games for PED use.
  • Perhaps we should give KBO hitters more credit, writes Dave Cameron.
