In Mariners News...
- The Mariners have released their 60-player training roster for the upcoming season.
- Haniger, a notable player missing from the roster, is on the 60-day IL but can be added to the active roster when he returns from the IL.
Haniger is not on the 60-player training roster but can be added back to the active roster upon his return from the injured list. The 60-day IL is actually a 45-day IL this year (not confusing?), so he could potentially return in mid-August. https://t.co/ghyhHUUdgS— Greg Johns (@GregJohnsMLB) June 28, 2020
Around The League...

I talked about the tragic story of Glenn Burke, who was run out of Los Angeles by Tommy Lasorda and Al Campanis, was essentially blacklisted by the Oakland A's, and deserved so much better, in Episode 66 of @TWIBHistory.https://t.co/U0S2omRVfK https://t.co/jl1wZA1zY7— Mike Bates (@MikeBatesTWIBH) June 28, 2020
