MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Time to kick off the three day weekend! The weather forecast for Seattle looks fantastic, which is nice because these next few days present the only opportunity for me to have fun before the finals preparation grind begins. I’m not sure what all of your plans are for the weekend, some maybe different than others; however, one thing remains certain: you all will begin your weekend with a prime collection of links.

In Mariners News...

  • James Paxton made a rehab start for Arkansas, and is scheduled to return to the Mariners on Wednesday.
  • Dan Vogelbach picked up three hits for the Rainiers Friday night.

Around the League...

  • The Dodgers claimed a pair of former Mariners off of waivers.
  • Everyone applaud Steven Souza Jr. for his outstanding diving effort.
  • Statcast generously provided more insight into Souza’s diving try.

Luke’s Pick...

  • The WIAA 3A baseball state championship is today. I thought I would take this opportunity to remember Mercer Island High School’s unbelievable state championship in 2015.
