3/7/18: Athletics vs. Mariners Open Game Thread

And now back to your regularly scheduled practice baseball games

MLB: Spring Training-Colorado Rockies at Seattle Mariners
mmm mmm good

Whew, big day! Ichiro is officially back on the Mariners. Get caught up on all the press conference action here. Also, look for Ichiro to get in some games starting on either Saturday or Sunday.

We can likely assume that the “4-5 times a week” mentioned here is for the time Ben Gamel remains on the DL. Beyond that time is anyone’s best guess at this point.

Moving on, we’ve got roster moves!

And here are your lineups!

We get to see some regulars in the top part of the order and Daniel Vogelbach gets another start at first base. And hey, a bonus Ian Miller start! Marco Gonzales makes his third appearance of the spring and this one is televised so we can get some more looks at his new cutter.

As an aside, I’ve seen this discussed a bit on Twitter, but has anyone seen or heard from Spring Training Bugle Guy? I have yet to hear his familiar, forlorn tune. I hope he’s okay. Please chime in if you’ve heard anything.

Game Info:

Game Time: 5:40 PM PST
