Good morning everyone and happy Friday! Yesterday marked another deadline around baseball as teams and players had to submit contract numbers for arbitration. With that, here’s what went down around baseball.

In Mariners news...

Around the league...

  • The Yankees finally got the established starter they were looking for, signing right-hander Marcus Stroman to a two-year contract.
  • The Yankees agreed to a one-year deal with right-hander Luke Weaver, further bolstering their pitching depth.
  • The Cubs and Dodgers agreed to an interesting trade, with infielder Michael Busch and right-hander Yency Almonte being sent to Chicago for a pair of minor leaguers.
  • Juan Soto set an MLB record by signing a one-year, $31M deal with the Yankees to avoid arbitration.
  • However, several players did not finalize deals with their clubs prior to the arbitration deadline. Devin Williams is the lone name from this list that agreed to terms with his team after this tweet.
