Some news and notes from around baseball.

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Cincinnati Reds David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning folks and happy Wednesday! Let’s get to the latest from around baseball.

In Mariners news...

  • The Rainiers have their next manager, once again dipping into the waters of the recently-retired (after Kristopher Negrón, who has been elevated to the Mariners’ coaching staff).
  • Noelvi Marte might not stick at shortstop in the end, but I’ll be damned if he doesn’t look good there now.

Around the league...

  • Max Scherzer is trying to get his guy at the helm of the Mets for 2022.
  • Zach Hayes at Pitcher List breaks down exactly where we stand in the lockout right now and what issues are most contentious between the league and the players.
  • Sounds like the MLB Rule 5 Draft will still be happening once the lockout comes to an end.
