Good morning everyone and happy Monday! Spring training games are coming this week! It’s only a matter of time before we get to watch real baseball. Before that, we have to get through today. Here are some links to get you started on this President’s Day.
In Mariners news...
- Although Erasmo Ramirez is hurt, not all is bad with the M’s.
In some positive injury news for the Mariners, Guillermo Heredia (shoulder surgery) will meet with team doctors on Monday in his physical and could be cleared for full participation.— Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) February 18, 2018
- Catch Mike Leake in slow motion.
Around the league...
- Looks like the Brewers have a new head of their marketing department.
- Why don’t they do this in the MLB?
- This is not flattering for Eric Hosmer.
I'm not sharing the whole projections yet (I may write a piece), but I have Hosmer 0.5 WAR more valuable than Corey Dickerson for the next five years. Oh, that's not per.— Dan Szymborski (@DSzymborski) February 18, 2018
- The Angels have signed DH Chris Carter to a minor league deal and also added outfielder Chris Young to a major league contract.
- This seems...optimistic.
