Apparently, it helps to hit the publish button when you type a blog post. So this news broke on Friday, and I typed it up and then didn’t hit publish. Yep, I’m a computer genius

Anyway, the Mariners announced that 18 players not on the 40-man roster have earned invites to major league spring training. Leading that group are prized prospects Taijuan Walker, Mike Zunino and Nick Franklin. If you notice there are no outfielders thanks to the glut of outfielders already on the 40-man roster.
