Good morning everybody! Alright, here’s some links for you today.

In Mariners news...

  • Exciting things happening in Arkansas!

Around the league...

  • Things were supposed to improve for minor leaguers following the contraction of 40 teams. Evidently not.
  • Official sources such as Baseball-Reference have now included Negro Leagues players as a part of their MLB database, allowing fans to more accurately line up Negro Leagues statistics with today’s MLB players.
  • The change also shifts a small distinction from one Mariner to another.
  • Tyler Glasnow has a partially torn UCL, which he will hope to rehab rather than get Tommy John surgery. The right-hander is blaming MLB’s crackdown on foreign substances for his injury.
  • Eno Sarris at The Athletic wonders if we’re already seeing the effects of MLB’s crackdown on a larger scale. ($)
  • The longest-reigning manager in baseball will continue to stay in his role through 2022.
  • Max Scherzer is hitting the injured list.
