A quick note today to let you know that we have a few interesting things on the schedule for next week.
On Monday, we expect that the Mariners will announce all of their minor league coaching staffs including Tacoma’s. We already know Pat Listach is the new Tacoma manager but his staff has not been announced. I don’t expect much change from last year.
We’ll start our annual position-by-position look at potential Tacoma Rainiers players on Wednesday with the catchers. This will be a weekly feature on Wednesdays until spring training starts.
Later this month the Mariners have their annual “Pre Spring Training Media Luncheon” at Safeco Field and I will attend this. There is usually some interesting Rainiers news that comes out of this.
Thank goodness we’ve got some things coming up. It’s been really quiet around these parts lately!
- John Sickels released his Top 20 Mariners Prospects list for 2015, with a brief write-up on each player. Check it out.
- We have some PCL manager news. Albuquerque will be skippered by former Mariners outfielder Glenallen Hill. Hill managed Colorado Springs the last two years, and he moves with the Colorado Rockies affiliation to Albuquerque.
- Pat Murphy can still claim to be the only manager in El Paso Chihuahuas history. He’s returning for year two.
