Mariners Moose Tracks, 7/6/17: Tyler O’Neill (again), LoMo, and Dak Prescott

There’s a couple of super hot bats down in Tacoma right now

Can you believe that IT’S ALMOST FRIDAY ALREADY?! I’m making the trip over from Spokane tomorrow to hit Saturday’s game. Anyways, lots of Mariners minor league happenings to be excited about below!

In Mariners news...

  • NBC Sports’ Christopher Crawford finds it hard to imagine the Mariners in the playoffs without Jarrod Dyson

In Mariners minors news...

  • Tyler O’Neill continued to his ridiculous hot streak by going deep yet again last night. That makes 8 over his last 13 games.
  • College strikeout king LHP JP Sears continued to do what he does best. He’s now up to 15 K’s in 6.1 IP.
  • SS Chris Torres—who ranks the Mariners’ #15 prospect—made his Short Season-A debut

Around the league...

  • Ex-Mariner Logan Morrison made headlines for publicly calling out Yankees C Gary Sanchez, saying “Gary shouldn’t be there” in regards to Sanchez’ selection to the Home Run Derby.
  • Speaking of the Home-Run Derby, current Brewer and ex-Korean home run king 1B Eric Thames says he never got a call about participating, according to the crew over at Brew Crew Baseball
  • Rockies pitcher Jon Gray hit his first career home run, and it went 467 feet
  • A Single-A lineup smacked around rehabbing Giants ace Madison Bumgarner to the tune of nine hits and nine runs--including four home runs--in a four inning appearance.
  • All-Star snub LHP Alex Wood has continued to perform like one of the top pitchers in baseball, blanking the D-Backs over seven with 10 strikeouts.
