Hello folks! Let’s dive into the latest from around baseball.

In Mariners news...

  • Tyler Locklear and Alberto Rodriguez of High-A Everett both made the MLB Pipeline Prospect Team of the Week.
  • Speaking of awards, Julio Rodríguez was honored for his torrid week.
  • The M’s made a move to shore up their outfield depth in Tacoma.
  • Andrés Muñoz was strong in his first rehab outing.

Around the league...

  • The Orioles have agreed to an MLB contract with outfielder Aaron Hicks.
  • Ethan Salas was just signed this January, labeled by many outlets as the best international prospect next to the M’s own Felnin Celesten. To move a kid that young to Single-A is pretty unprecedented.
  • Clayton Kershaw spoke to the Los Angeles Times about his displeasure with the organization re-inviting the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to the team’s Pride Night, and said that he pushed for the return of Christian Faith and Family Day in response.
  • Kershaw isn’t the only player in baseball who voiced opposition to the Dodgers’ decision, with the Nationals’ Trevor Williams writing a long statement with his thoughts on the matter as well.
  • Alex Shultz of SF Gate tells the odd story of Giants’ owner Charles Johnson and his war with a clam shack.
