Open Game Thread 3/22/18: Rangers at Mariners

Are you ready to hear Bartolo Colon content for three hours? No? Too bad.

The Mariners will get their first look at newly-acquired Texas Ranger Bartolo Colon tonight:

Colón will face a lineup of mostly Mariners regulars, minus thumb-sprained Jean Segura, who apparently hit in the cages today and should return by Saturday. Marco Gonzales will face...not a lineup of Texas regulars.

It’s not a Spring Training game without some reserves:

Erik Goeddel, one of the four players the Mariners acquired from the Royals, makes his first big-league appearance after being here since all of yesterday. Spring surprise Michael Koval is on the list as well, as is Austin Hutchison, a 2017 draftee who has one of the crazier career arcs of last season as a late-season replacement, spending time in the AZL, the Cal League with A+ Modesto, the Texas League (where he pitched 10.2 innings!), and the PCL with the Rainiers.
