MLB: New York Yankees at Houston Astros Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Hey everyone! It’s the last day of November and the baseball news is heating up a little. Here’s what’s going on.

In Mariners news...

  • Jon Morosi went on 710 ESPN and expressed a strong belief that Luis Urías will not be the team’s starting third baseman, and that the organization will instead pivot to Justin Turner, Rhys Hoskins, or Jeimer Candelario to fill the 3B/DH gap.

Around the league...

  • Félix Bautista and Devin Williams were named the 2023 Relievers of the Year.
  • In a somewhat surprising deal, the Mets inked right-hander Luis Severino to a one-year pact.
  • The Mets also agreed to a one-year deal with infielder Joey Wendle.
  • Former Mariners reliever Emilio Pagán has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with the Reds.
  • Late last night, the Reds also inked right-hander Nick Martinez to a two-year contract.
  • Former Mariners reliever Penn Murfee signed a one-year contract with Atlanta. Murfee was previously non-tendered by the organization a couple of weeks ago.
  • The Royals signed infielder Garrett Hampson to a one-year contract.
  • Nelson Cruz will be joining the Dodgers front office in an advisory role.
  • Will Leitsch ranked potential Yoshinobu Yamamoto landing spots by how likely he believes each team is to acquire the right-hander. Interestingly, the Mariners are not included, which I believe to be an oversight (even if they are not his most likely destination, we have reason to believe they are in the mix).
  • Good news for those of you out there who are Randy-heads: Arozarena is reportedly being actively shopped around by the Rays.
  • Atlanta is reportedly one of the finalists for Dylan Cease as the White Sox continue to work out a trade agreement for the right-hander. The Orioles and Reds also appear to be involved, reports Ken Rosenthal at The Athletic, who also notes that Chicago will likely wait to deal Cease until after most of the free agent starters are off the board. ($)
  • Andy Martino reports that the Yankees and Padres are deep into talks regarding a trade for outfielder Juan Soto, but a deal does not appear to be imminent.
  • As with all Shohei Ohtani reports, I’m not sure how much weight there is to this report, but if true, it would certainly be a welcome relief for Mariners fans.
  • The Mariners’ 2017 second round pick is moving on from the organization.
  • You can’t make this stuff up...
