MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Arizona Diamondbacks Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Hello everyone! Here’s what’s going on in baseball on this Thursday.

In Mariners news...

  • Jarred Kelenic really has turned it around in August.
  • Meanwhile, Emerson Hancock had a very successful debut in Arkansas.

Around the league...

  • Joey Gallo is having some trouble getting used to playing with his new teammates.
  • The Angels reportedly have no plans to shut down Mike Trout as he deals with a calf strain.
  • Corbin Burnes tied a major league record with 10 straight strikeouts during a dominant outing on Wednesday.
  • The Mets have picked up free agent outfielder Josh Reddick as they try to catch up with the red-hot Phillies.
  • Our very own Michael Ajeto made his Baseball Prospectus debut with an analysis of the Padres’ supposed experiment with Fernando Tatis, Jr. in center field. ($)

Anders’ picks...

  • I really hope they allow this to happen.
