MLB: Spring Training-Milwaukee Brewers at Los Angeles Angels Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning folks! Let’s get to today’s batch of links.

In Mariners news...

  • George Kirby has been hitting the gym.
  • High praise for the Mariners’ top two pitching prospects, who Callis has over the projected top two overall picks from next year’s draft.

Around the league...

  • Yesterday, news broke from Jon Heyman that MLB and MLBPA were near an agreement for a 2020 season. The Players’ Association refuted the claim, but the two sides are reportedly making progress nonetheless.
  • John Branch at The New York Times talks about what nobody seems to want to: the idea that sports can only come back if it’s physically safe for them to do so.
  • In light of the Royals getting positive press for their treatment of their minor league players, check out this piece from September.
  • Clearly some teams are still trying to take advantage of player labor.
  • Another awful story involving Twins slugger Miguel Sanó.
