Good morning folks! Happy Wednesday! Here’s the latest from around baseball.

In Mariners news...

  • We’ve got some good news on the Yusei Kikuchi front.

Around the league...

  • It’s pretty rare to see a player from the Bahamas in the majors, but Jazz Chisholm might lead a charge of many going forward, writes Christina De Nicola.
  • Max Scherzer will not be stopped.
  • Craig Goldstein at Baseball Prospectus proposes some potential rule changes Major League Baseball could look into. ($)
  • Glad to see Justin Smoak dominating in Japan.
  • Major League Baseball will rather quietly see its two millionth run scored of all time this week, writes David Waldstein at the New York Times.
  • It’s hard not to love the Twins.
  • Twitter was abuzz yesterday when New Era leaked images for their new “Local Market” baseball caps. Levi Weaver and the staff at The Athletic break down each individual hat. ($)

Anders’ picks...
