In Mariners News...

  • Longtime Mariners scout Wayne Norton, largely responsible for several notable Canadian and international prospects in recent Mariners history, has passed away.

Around the League...

  • The frostbitten hot stove got a minor spark as the Blue Jays traded OF Edward Olivares and RHP Jared Carkuff (both prospects), for INF Yangervis Solarte of the Padres. The deal should give Toronto a more palatable backup to their injury-prone starters of Troy Tulowitzki and Devon Travis, while giving San Diego a few more pieces during their rebuild.
  • Former Rangers starter Nick Martinez is joining the Nippon Ham Fighters.
  • The Padres have signed RHP Craig Stammen to a two-year deal.
  • The Bahamas had a showcase on Saturday, with a home run derby of Bahamanian baseballers on the beach, including notable MLB prospects Lucius Fox Jr. and Bo Bichette!

John’s Pick...

  • If you like rap music and funky music videos I must recommend BROCKHAMPTON. They just came out with a new album called SATURATION III and I’m a fan. Their most entertaining video, in my opinion, is GOLD.
