It’s officially the full swing of Awards Season with the Rookies of the Year being named yesterday. We’ve got all of that and more in today’s links.
In Mariners news...
- All was quiet on the Mariners front yesterday.
Around the league...

- Some shuffling going on in the Rangers system.
Rangers have promoted Corey Ragsdale from minor league staff to Major League coaching staff as Major League Field Coordinator replacing new Padres manager Jayce Tingler. Ross Fenstermaker has been promoted to Senior Director of Professional and International Scouting.— John Blake (@RangerBlake) November 11, 2019
- I don’t think anybody saw this coming back in March. Also, who would have thought that a healthy Vlad Guerrero, Jr. would receive fewer votes for this award than John Means (who finished second)?

- I guess we know who’s going to have a breakout 2020 season.
Astros, who have long liked Zack Wheeler, met today with his agents BB Abbott, Andrew Lowenthal and others from Jet Sports. Wheeler’s robust market likely enhanced by big postseason for teams with great starters (Nats, Astros — who may lose Cole — etc.)— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) November 12, 2019
- I’m not sure what I thought this sounded like on set, but it definitely wasn’t this.
If you've ever wondered what Chewie sounds like to Han, crank up the volume and wonder no longer! #StarWars pic.twitter.com/LGJBtK7i3F— Marshall Julius (@MarshallJulius) November 11, 2019
