Happy Sunday!

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Seattle Mariners Lindsey Wasson-USA TODAY Sports

In Mariners News...

  • Although Felix didn’t get the win, he had an impressive outing last night and it was great to see him back in action with the Mariners.
  • Mitch Haniger is taking things day by day, and currently has no timeline for his return.
  • Ever wonder what it’s like to play with King Felix?
  • There is no stopping Seager.

Around the League...

  • After being removed from Saturday night’s game with tightness in his trapezius, Edwin Díaz should fortunately avoid an IL stint.
  • The same can’t be said for Rays bullpen ace Jose Alvarado, who will hit the IL with elbow inflammation in, shocker, his pitching arm.
  • Who did it better?
  • Injury news that could impact the playoff race for Cleveland and the AL Wild Card: Jose Ramirez has a fractured hamate bone in his hand and will hit the IL, to be replaced by prospect Yu Chang.
  • Watch out!
  • Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s family history has famous roots in baseball, but it’s not just limited to his dad. From the New York Times, his grandmother, Altagracia Alvino, is viewed by many as the abuela of the entire league.
  • Have you noticed a whole mess of craft beer with a baseball tint to it? There have been a multitude of partnerships between MiLB clubs and brewers nationwide.
  • Former Mariners reliever Oliver Pérez fulfilled his vesting option for 2020 with Cleveland Saturday night. Assuming he makes it to Opening Day, which seems likely given his longevity and productivity, he’ll mark his 18th season as a big leaguer, a record for a Mexican pitcher per Zack Meisel of The Athletic.
  • What was the exit velo on that one?

Becca’s Picks...

  • Andrew Luck announced his retirement last night at the age of 29. Congrats on an amazing career Andrew, and thank you.
