Spring training is officially underway.

MLB: Miami Marlins at Philadelphia Phillies Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Hello folks! We’re starting to get the first stories out of spring training, so we should have plenty of video and news bits in the next couple of weeks. Here are some links to get you warmed up.

In Mariners news...

  • A lot of Mariners alum will be in camp.
  • Jim Callis dubs Jarred Kelenic, Julio Rodríguez, and Kyle Lewis as the best outfield trio in minor league baseball.
  • Taijuan Walker appears to be sticking with the number he chose in Arizona, which would be his fourth different jersey number with the Mariners, per staffer Matthew Roberson.

Around the league...

  • Andrew Battifarano talked about how Kyle Boddy from Driveline plans on implementing his methods in the Reds’ player development system.
  • The Corvallis, Oregon native and Lake Washington High School alum is hanging ‘em up.
  • Speaking of retirements...
  • The outfielder is nearing a deal that would allow him to return home.
  • So it appears that Mike Leake is on the mend in Dbacks camp.
  • He returns!
  • Keeping the run of former Mariners news going...
  • The Astros... apology(?) came this morning, with brief, pre-written statements from Jose Altuve and Alex Bregman, followed by remarks from new manager Dusty Baker and a few words from team owner Jim Crane. Crane then remained for a Q&A with the press. For many, it was... unsatisfactory.
