Good morning everyone! Here’s the latest from around baseball.

In Mariners news...

  • The Mariners brought in a few players on minor league deals, including one familiar name.
  • If you’d like to learn more about the M’s new right-handed arm, check out Michael Augustine’s piece at Fangraphs about Paul Sewald from back in May.
  • This is odd, considering the Mets already have J.D. Davis.

Around the league...

  • In terms of level of competition, this is an upgrade for Tri-City.
  • Bianca Smith, who was recently hired as a minor league coach in the Red Sox system, hopes to be an MLB manager one day.
  • The Padres made another move, albeit a minor one.
  • The right-hander opted to go home instead of signing with the Padres, who he was reportedly in talks with.
