Good morning everyone and welcome to the weekend! With the non-tender deadline passing yesterday, we’ve got a bunch of news to cover. Let’s get to it.

In Mariners news...

  • Daniel Kramer reported yesterday that he has not heard any indications that the Mariners are in serious pursuit of Shohei Ohtani this winter. However, given that Ohtani made it clear he did not want his negotiations with teams to leak to the press, it’s unclear how much of this should be taken at face value.
  • Connor Kelley at The Seattle Times wrote a scathing opinion piece in which he lambasted the Mariners’ ownership group for taking fans’ interest (and money) for granted.
  • Prospects Worldwide unveiled their scouting report on rising stud Lazaro Montes.
  • Happy belated birthday, Rick!

Around the league...

  • A whole host of players are now free agents after their teams didn’t tender them contracts, including former Mariners Austin Nola, Trevor Gott, Kyle Lewis, and Dan Vogelbach. Notable players who were not tendered contracts include Brandon Woodruff and Austin Meadows.
  • In other former Mariner news...
  • Let the games begin.
