Good morning everyone! Let’s dive into today’s installment of links.
In Mariners news...
- Joel Sherman at The New York Post spelled doomsday for Mets fans who were hoping Jarred Kelenic wouldn’t end up becoming the superstar they thought he’d be.
- In another Mariners-related story, Sherman looked at the Mariners rotation, which is filled with former New York players.
- We give our condolences to the Olerud family at this time.
Very sorry to hear of the passing of Jordan Olerud, the 19-year-old daughter of former Mariner John Olreud. She'd dealt with a rare chromosome disease since birth. Services will be in Bothell this Saturday and donations to their foundation can be made at https://t.co/IwPJXfkMSu.— Greg Johns (@GregJohnsMLB) March 1, 2020
- Some injury updates...
Should see some returns early next week for the Mariners— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) March 1, 2020
Evan White (groin) to run bases today. If all goes well should be in lineup tomorrow.
Dylan Moore (concussion protocol) Wed.
Taijuan Walker- likely to start Wed.
Erik Swanson ready for games.
- And other roster news...
We have a roster cut. Matt Festa reassigned to minor league camp. Spring training roster now at 70.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) March 1, 2020
- It appears Matt Festa being re-assigned is a more serious issue, as he will miss the 2020 season with Tommy John surgery.
- It appears that David Aardsma received some fan mail.
Around the league...
- Yankees right-hander Domingo Germán was involved in a dune buggy accident in the Dominican Republic, but was not hurt.
- We miss you, Mike.
