Good morning and happy Friday! Let’s get to the latest from around the world of baseball.

In Mariners news...

  • Don’t expect Logan Gilbert to break camp with the team.

Around the league...

  • Hearts were broken all around Seattle this morning as it was reported that Taijuan Walker has signed a two-year deal with the Mets.
  • Well we can thank the Blue Jays for getting cold feet.
  • The Oakland bullpen becomes stronger.
  • The A’s are making a lot of moves here late in the offseason.
  • Another longtime big leaguer decides to call it a career.
  • It’s so weird to see a staggered minor league start. Single-A and Double-A will essentially be semi short-season.
  • It’s sad to hear that Félix wasn’t enjoying himself in Seattle.
  • Eric Longenhagen and Kevin Goldstein at Fangraphs outline their predictions for who we’ll be talking about in 2022. A few M’s prospects get mentions.
  • We’ve got our first major injury report of the spring.
  • I’m glad baseball players are like us, coming up with genius ideas when we’re trying to sleep.
  • Blake Snell took to The Players’ Tribune to give his thoughts on the Rays pulling him early in that fateful 2020 playoff game.
