  2. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Jose Bautista

    The Blue Jays 2013 plan worked out pretty well for their second game in 2014. And Jonathan Papelbon shows us the meaning of accountability. In his own special way.

  3. Robinson Cano celebrates anniversaries, likes hashtags

    Robinson Cano

    I dunno why, exactly, but this tweet cracked me up.

  4. Robinson Cano’s double-play partner is pretty good too

    Apr 2, 2014, 12:20 PM EDT

    Brad Miller

    Seattle may have found a long-term building block in Brad Miller.

  5. C.J. Wilson apparently did not want to intentionally walk Robinson Cano last night

    Pitching to Robinson Cano with men in scoring position vs. issuing an intentional walk. WHO YA GOT?!

  6. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 2, 2014, 5:22 AM EDT

    Bochy replay

    Major League Baseball wanted a challenge system for replay. Everyone except Major League Baseball said a challenge system would be flawed and would lead to problems. The Giants-Dbacks game last night showed us exactly what those problems are.

    Does winning on Opening Day mean anything? I dunno, ask Oakland and Seattle.

  8. Mariners receive good news on Hisashi Iwakuma

    Mar 28, 2014, 8:15 PM EDT

    Hisashi Iwakuma AP

    The Mariners got some good news on right-hander hisashi Iwakuma. Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports that the right-hander was fully cleared. Iwakuma will be able to resume his throwing program as he makes his way back from a strained middle finger. Mid-to-late April remains the target for his return. Iwakuma, 32, finished third…

  9. Displaced by Robinson Cano, Mariners demote Nick Franklin back to the minors

    Mar 28, 2014, 5:17 PM EDT

    Nick Franklin

    Nick Franklin showed enough promise as a rookie second baseman for the Mariners last season that he seemed set as the team’s long-term answer there, but then they signed Robinson Cano for $240 million. That knocked Franklin out of the second base picture and forced him into a competition with Brad Miller to start at…

  10. Rangers sign Scott Baker

    Mar 28, 2014, 3:51 PM EDT

    Scott Baker AP

    Released by the Mariners earlier this week, right-hander Scott Baker has agreed to a new minor-league contract with the Rangers. Texas was in the market for rotation depth with Yu Darvish, Matt Harrison, and Derek Holland all hurting, but Baker was a mess in Mariners camp and missed nearly all of the past two seasons…

  11. UPDATE: Miguel Cabrera, Tigers agree to extension; will make $292M over next 10 years

    Mar 27, 2014, 8:10 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    UPDATE: CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the deal includes two vesting options valued at $30 million each. If Cabrera maxes out the deal, he could make as much as $352 million over 12 years. 6:56 p.m. ET: The new money in the deal works out to eight years and $248 million, per FOX Sports’…

  12. Mariners give Nationals castoff Chris Young a rotation spot

    Mar 27, 2014, 12:48 PM EDT

    chris young getty

    Released by the Nationals earlier this week, Chris Young has signed with the Mariners. And unlike most of these scenarios Young is actually getting a major-league deal and a spot in Seattle’s starting rotation. Young is coming back from thoracic outlet syndrome and didn’t pitch in the majors at all last season, but he was…

  13. Randy Wolf asked to be cut after the Mariners requested he sign a 45-day release waiver

    Mar 25, 2014, 9:17 PM EDT

    randy wolf getty

    Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times explains the odd situation: After it seemed as Randy Wolf made the opening day starting rotation – which he apparently did, we learned that Wolf asked to be released from his contract and the Mariners granted his release. So what happened?’ Well, the Mariners told Wolf on Tuesday that…

  14. Nationals release right-hander Chris Young

    Mar 25, 2014, 7:13 PM EDT

    chris young getty

    Chris Young proved he’s recovered from thoracic outlet surgery this spring by posting a respectable 3.48 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in four Grapefruit League appearances for the Nationals. But there’s no spot for him on Washington’s major league roster and so he was let go in a round of cuts Tuesday in camp. Young did…

  16. Mariners release right-hander Scott Baker

    Mar 24, 2014, 8:32 PM EDT

    Scott Baker AP

    According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, the Mariners granted Scott Baker his release today. Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports that he asked for his release after declining an assignment to Triple-A. Signed to a minor league deal over the winter, Baker appeared to have a rotation spot to lose after Hisashi…

    Taijuan Walker

    Mariners starter Taijuan Walker made his first start of the spring against the Padres’ Triple-A squad in Peoria on Saturday. He allowed a run on two hits in one inning of work.

    Mariners starter Taijuan Walker will throw in a minor league game in Peoria on Saturday, MLB.com’s Greg Johns reports. Johns adds that Walker is expected to throw 20-30 pitches over two innings against Triple-A competition.

  19. Corey Hart wishes his Brewers teammates reached out more when he was a free agent

    Mar 19, 2014, 3:55 PM EDT

    Corey Hart

    Here’s something you don’t hear very often. Corey Hart signed with the Mariners because they offered three times the guaranteed money the Brewers did.  That’s not the part you don’t hear very often. That happens a lot and it’s fine. What’s odd is Hart noting that, in addition to the money not being there, he…

  20. Hisashi Iwakuma cleared to resume throwing

    Mar 18, 2014, 4:03 PM EDT

    Hisashi Iwakuma

    Hisashi Iwakuma has been sidelined for more than a month with a strained tendon in his middle finger, but the Mariners right-hander has been cleared to resume throwing after meeting with doctors. Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that Iwakuma will start slow by throwing tennis balls Friday and then hopefully advance to…

  21. Logan Morrison said something controversial on Twitter again

    Mar 17, 2014, 10:18 PM EDT

    Logan Morrison AP

    Another day, another controversial tweet from Logan Morrison: If I were to be Native American. Would I not get taxed? If this is true, I'm so jealy!— Logan Morrison (@CupOfLoMo) March 17, 2014 You know, because white males have had it so tough. Yikes. Of course, Morrison has had a number of Twitter missteps in…

  22. Report: Tigers to make a “serious run” at Mariners shortstop Nick Franklin

    Mar 16, 2014, 8:55 PM EDT

    Nick Franklin Getty

    Mariners shortstop Nick Franklin has been named in trade rumors throughout the off-season and into the spring. The Mets have been one team strongly linked to him. But with the Tigers hurting at the position after learning that Jose Iglesias will not be ready for the start of the regular season — at least —…

  23. Taijuan Walker throws 40-pitch ‘pen session, feels “great”

    Mar 16, 2014, 4:50 PM EDT

    taijuan walker getty

    MLB.com’s Greg Johns has the status update … Good news from Taijuan Walker today as the youngster threw a 40-pitch bullpen session and said he felt great. Walker is likely a couple weeks still from throwing in a game and a few more from being Major League ready, in the best-case scenario, but the fact he’s…

  24. Scott Boras says clients Stephen Drew and Kendrys Morales still willing to wait for the right deal

    Mar 15, 2014, 10:10 PM EDT

    stephen drew red sox getty

    With about two weeks to go until the start of the regular season, shortstop Stephen Drew and first baseman/DH Kendrys Morales still remain unemployed. Both players rejected $14.1 million qualifying offers from the Red Sox and Mariners, respectively, hoping to sign big, multi-year contracts, but it never happened. Meanwhile, players like Nelson Cruz and Ervin Santana,…
