This Saturday, a mixed bag of links for your perusal.

In Mariners news...

  • The Seattle Mariners agreed to a minor league deal with INF Alen Hanson, who previously was with the organization in 2019.
  • Promotion season continues in the minors, as LHP Brandon Williamson’s utter dominance of High-A Everett rightfully earned him a bump up to Double-A Arkansas.
  • Less excitingly, the AquaSox appear set to be without another promising righty for some time, as RHP Isaiah Campbell appears to be sidelined with arm surgery.
  • Julio Rodríguez is down in Mexico, playing for the Dominican Republic in Olympic Qualifiers once again this week. The Mariners put out a sleek profile video for him on his journey thus far.
  • The Mariners ushers and management fell under scrutiny once again yesterday after a viral video of a local journalist and current Senior Producer at Vice News being harangued emerged from last night’s game.

Around the league...

  • The Home Run Derby, held in Coors Field this year, will feature Shohei Ohtani.
  • Oh... oh dear.

John’s pick...

  • This was... a journey.
