Castillo will join the Mariners, where No. 1 catcher Mike Zunino has hit .179/.241/.358 with five home runs and 11 RBI in 106 at-bats. Backup Jesus Sucre is just 1 for 15 in six games.
No word yet what the Cubs will be getting in return.
Exceeding all expectations while passing all PED tests. Who’da thunk it?
If Farrell could do it over again, he would have had Layne intentionally walk Cruz. And then the southpaw could have faced left-handed batter Kyle Seager.
Instead, Farrell called on Tazawa, daring Cruz to beat the Red Sox. And that he did.
“Yeah, we’ve got it set up, two outs, [can] easily take the bat out of his hand, walk him, then you get a left on left with Layne and Seager. As we sit here in this moment after the walk-off, that’s the move to make,” said Farrell. “Like I said, terrible ...
Maybe because the return for Bradley was NSFW?
As a 25-year-old former top prospect who has struggled in the majors what is Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr.’s value at this point?
Well, according to Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston the Red Sox offered Bradley to the Mariners for left-handed reliever Charlie Furbush during spring training and Seattle turned it down.
Since then Bradley has been playing at Triple-A, hitting .343 in 24 games, and now he’s back in Boston for another call-up. ...
Here’s an entertaining post by Jeff Sullivan.
Ken Rosenthal’s latest.
Where was the Statcast on Nelson Cruz’s second homer?
Your browser does not support iframes.
He can now retire to pursue he’s lifelong dream - hunting and killing Zack Greinke.
Carlos Quentin, who’s been playing at Triple-A for the Mariners after being released by the Braves last month, has decided to retire at age 32.
Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that Quentin left the Tacoma team Thursday after going 3-for-17 in five games.
Atlanta acquired Quentin from San Diego as part of the Craig Kimbrel trade, but his inclusion was strictly to help balance out the money and the ...
Iwakuma informed club officials after his start last Monday that his shoulder felt “fatigued.” He then began taking anti-inflammatories in hopes of alleviating the problem prior to his scheduled Friday bullpen workout.
When Iwakuma reported the same symptoms in that workout, the Mariners moved quickly by placing him in the disabled list for what they characterized as a strained right latissimus dorsi muscle in his back.

If you aren’t the type who brings a glove to the game, you’re going to come away with a sore hand or two. Well, unless you’re this inventive Mariners fan.
This fan ... no, this hero ... finds a way to make it work. He didn’t bring his glove to the game because he’s not 12, but he still gets the job done in the Mariners’ 2-0 loss to the Angels on Tuesday night. While he seems to have lost a significant amount of popcorn, it’s worth the parties future generations will throw in his honor....Read More...
The GIF above cycles through some of the graphics that were used in the intro package that led into ABC 7’s broadcast of yesterday’s Cubs game. Did you catch all those errors? Here, let us slow things down for you.
To be fair, the season is still very young. Everyone’s still working out the kinks!
Cavanaugh estimates that 300 major league players will wear New Balance cleats this season. It has come at a cost for the company that for so long proudly shunned endorsements—though a relatively cheap one, compared with other sports.
On Thursday, the brand announced that it has added Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano to an endorsement roster that already includes Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia and Detroit Tigers first baseman Miguel Cabrera.
“Robby wanted to be the ...
These results are not binding. Unless Proposition 29 passes. And we all pray that it does.
Yes or No: I’m happy to see Alex Rodriguez back from his yearlong suspension.
Yes 41 percent
No 29 percent
I don’t care 30 percent

I enjoy these previews but it’s hard to see how every team will hit the “over” on their projections.
Victor Sanchez has passed away.
Its hosted an All-Star Game, a Pro Bowl, an NBA All-Star, and a Final Four. Thank god its gone.
It was an albatross. Only fifteen years after its spectacular demolition was King County able to pay off the bonds still tied to it. The Kingdome was only slightly older than Safeco Field is now before its two main tenants began grousing about its inadequacy as a modern sporting venue. The moment that Camden Yards opened in 1993 and began printing money for the Orioles the last 30+ years of ...
Dan O’Dowd has been providing some great analysis on MLB Network this off-season. He’s spot on in this article.
The last time Sports Illustrated anointed the Cleveland Indians as favorites to win the World Series was 1987.
With Joe Carter (who would have his own World Series moment years later) and Cory Snyder on the cover, SI declared that “Cleveland is the Best Team in the American League.”
No, this is not the script of the movie “Major League,” as the previous five seasons before 1987 Cleveland finished 5th, 7th, 6th, 7th and 6th in the American League East.
Well, 1987 was no different as ...
Expectations are high in Seattle.
Mariners send a bunch of players down and start lining up their pitching rotation.
Some Mariners camp news.
This is the worst way to lose a spring training battle for a position.
The Mariners’ spring shortstop came to an abrupt end Saturday when an examination revealed Chris Taylor suffered a broken bone in his right wrist.
The injury is expected to sideline Taylor for four-to-six weeks and effectively sends Brad Miller into the season as the club’s starting shortstop.
Taylor suffered the injury Friday in a 10-5 victory over Milwaukee when hit on the wrist on what was ruled a foul ball. He ...
With April 1st so far away, this must be legit. Will Ozzie Smith throw out the first pitch? That would be ToTototally awesome!
“You know what potential means?” said McClendon. “It means you haven’t done anything yet.”
