Good morning folks! We’re back to it on this Monday, and we’ve got some fresh links for you.
In Mariners news...
- The M’s added a new player to camp fairly late in the game.
Mariners have signed outfielder Rymer Liriano to a minor league contract with an invite to big league camp. The Mariners now have 71 players in camp. All lockers are full.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) February 23, 2020
Around the league...
- The Padres shored up their second base depth a little.

Jurickson Profar currently tops San Diego's depth chart at second base. Sounds like they view Dozier as a potential part-timer, at least initially. He still hit lefties well last year.
- The Astros saw just a taste of what they’re going to get during the regular season when the heckling began during their first spring training game.
- On the other end, Mike Fiers got a warm reception during his first Cactus League appearance.
- Oh Wade, we’ll miss you.
