In Mariners news...

  • If this is the entire Mariners injury report to kick off spring training, I’ll take it.
  • Oh to be a fly on the batting cage.
  • Here’s a guy we don’t get to hear from very often.
  • James Paxton throws some cold water on Kevin Mather’s comments revolving around his free agency this winter.
  • Eno Sarris at The Athletic thinks there might be another level of performance that Kyle Lewis can achieve. He also discusses where Evan White could go from here. ($)

Around the league...

  • Alex Bregman is dealing with some hamstring issues that he hopes to get under control before Opening Day.
  • Another crushing blow for a top prospect who has faced so many developmental hurdles already.
  • An unfortunate reminder that this is going to be a factor all summer.
