In Mariners news:

  • The Mariners played a pretty, pretty bad game yesterday, which maybe you knew. I did, because I had to recap it, which I did here.
  • One of Seattle’s rookies got a pretty special shoutout from one of the game’s greats.
  • Luis Torrens took Father’s Day as an opportunity to announce he’s going to be a daddy himself. Congratulations LT.

Around the league:

  • Yordan Álvarez has a minor hand injury and missed Sunday’s game, but Dusty Baker is hopeful he’ll be able to return after the Astros’ day off today.
  • J.J. Matijevic got the start in place of the injured Álvarez and was part of a historic day:
  • Also Pirates rookie Jack Suwinski had himself a pretty memorable day, as well:
