MLB: Oakland Athletics at Texas Rangers Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning folks! It’s the weekend before the trade deadline so stuff is about to get wild. It’s already been pretty wild, and here’s what you might have missed.

In Mariners news...

  • Check out this interview with Kyle Lewis.
  • And here’s some words from Jerry Dipoto on the M’s trade deadline plans.
  • And a James Paxton update!

Around the league...

  • Things are worse in Baltimore than you thought.
  • Jon Heyman accidentally credited a Senator from New York for breaking an MLB trade (he meant to say Mark Feinsand, a New York area writer). I guess it officially is trade season. Oh, by the way, the Brewers acquired Joakim Soria.
  • Feinsand poked back at Heyman while reporting a much more interesting trade.
  • This A’s minor league pitcher is finding new ways to get outs.
  • Kyle Seager is still good at defense.
  • MLB Pipeline has re-ranked the top 100 prospects in baseball as well as the top 30 prospects for each team now that the draft is over.
  • This is a neat way to make these players more accessible to scouts and fans. And it must be cool for these players to play in the states before they sign.
  • The Yankees took a major blow to their team.
  • Josh Hader did not get as warm of a welcome in San Francisco.
