Good morning folks! The hot stove slowed down a little bit on Sunday, but here’s what we’ve got for you today...
In Mariners news...
- Rest in peace, Ryan.
Terrible news. Costello was originally drafted by the Mariners, traded to the Twins in the Zach Duke trade. Condolences to his family and friends. https://t.co/n4OPFB8qEH— Lookout Landing (@LookoutLanding) November 18, 2019
- Jordan Cowan is looking to earn an extra buck by providing coaching lessons.
I’ll be in Washington for the holidays, let me know if you’re interested. pic.twitter.com/n2QPKpcPpz— Jordan Cowan (@Jcow4show) November 17, 2019
Around the league...
- SNY reports that the Yankees were pretty unhappy when they realized that the Astros were stealing signs.
- Jeff Passan reports that Astros executives asked their scouts to spy on teams’ dugouts for signs going into the 2017 season.
- So it doesn’t look like there’s a lot of resistance to this.
- We might be seeing another player posted to MLB.
The @MLB Hot Stove could add another name: RHP Shun Yamaguchi of NPB’s Yomiuri Giants has asked to be posted to the Major Leagues. The Giants — who’ve never posted a player — are considering the possibility, source confirms reports by Kyodo and Nikkan Sports. @MLBNetwork— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) November 18, 2019
