Mariners Moose Tracks, 3/7/18: Haniger, Bullpen carts, Childish Gambino

MLB: Spring Training-Seattle Mariners at Chicago Cubs Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Hump Day M’s fans! There were lots of Mariners updates yesterday, and it appears (knock on wood) that their luck may be regressing to the mean a bit, as it was almost exclusively good news!

In Mariners News...

  • Mitch Haniger is back to swinging the bat, and took BP yesterday.
  • Before the Mariners officially announced the signing of Ichiro, Japanese media outlets were prepped an awaiting his arrival at Peoria Sports Complex
  • Speaking of Erasmo...
  • Alex Remington of The Hardball Times chronicled the Mariners’ struggles to fill the left field position throughout the years.
  • Felix took some time to speak with the media after playing catch for the first time since being struck by a comebacker last week, and he feels confident he’ll be ready by Opening Day.
  • Ryon Healy was back in action swinging the stick today as well.
  • A key member of last year’s bullpen appears to be nearing his Cactus League debut.

Around the League...

  • The D-Backs made perhaps the biggest addition of the offseason yesterday
  • The Royals made an addition as well, but it was just a player, not a cart.
  • The Angels signed another former-Braves prospect, inking Dominican 18-year-old Juan Contreras.
  • The Rangers appear to be closing in on a deal with the top international prospect (non-Ohtani division) on this year’s market.

Ben’s Pick

  • Tickets for Childish Gambino’s upcoming tour go on sale to the general pubic Friday. He’s playing in Seattle on September 29th, and you can get tickets here.
