Hi! It’s me, Kate, your internet friend. Anders had a double header that went into extra innings with his minor league team, so I’m on the links for today. In the comments, please leave some love for Ders, who manages to not only hold down the myriad responsibilities of a minor league play by play person, but also makes links for us almost every day. What a gem he is, eh?

In Mariners news...

  • The injury-addled Mariners outfield might be about to get even more injury-addled:

In other injury news, per Drayer, Ryon Healy has suffered a setback in Arizona while rehabbing his back injury—apparently his hip is now bothering him. Mitch Haniger continues to progress, slowly, but his return is quite distant. Braden Bishop has resumed baseball activities and his return is less-distant than Haniger’s, but there’s no timetable on any of these guys. Hunter Strickland continues to throw rehab assignments and has made two one-inning appearances for Tacoma.

  • A subscription to Baseball America is about worth it for this interview with Julio Rodríguez but if you can’t pony up the cash, the West Virginia broadcast team had him on their podcast this week, which you can listen to for the low, low price of free:
  • Speaking of top prospects, Jarred Kelenic is back from the injured list and heating up already:

Around the league...

  • Another indy league experiment, although this one seems like one that might actually help out the pitchers:
  • Speaking of indy leagues:
  • Does Philly have the prospects to get Trevor Bauer? And why is Cleveland selling? File under: things I’m glad I don’t have to think about that much.

In other Seattle sports...

  • Boo.

Kate’s pick:

Would you like an excuse to eat ice cream? Here’s an excuse to eat ice cream! I am a Reese’s Blizzard kind of girl myself, and might have to just go get one today. For CHARITY, you understand.
