Good morning and happy Friday to all! The Blue Jays come to town to begin another important series for the M’s wild card hopes. Here are some links in the meantime.

In Mariners news...

  • We might need to start talking about this guy.
  • A pair of less-heralded prospects are making their way up the ladder.
  • Julio is back in Arkansas!

Around the league...

  • Honestly, MLB kind of nailed this Field of Dreams intro.
  • The Cubs have cut ties with Jake Arrieta.
  • You know the Cubs have thrown in the towel on the season when they’re doing stuff like this.
  • This is another case of “I didn’t know he was still playing” but hopefully Davis will be remembered for his great early stage of his career and not his floundering late stage.
  • Dinelson Lamet underwent a procedure to address a hip infection.
  • Yu Darvish was forced to leave his start yesterday due to lower back tightness.
