Pitchers & Catchers Report

It has begun.

Mariners pitchers and catchers reported to spring training in Peoria, Arizona today. The 2017 baseball season is upon us.

For the first few days, it will be just pitchers throwing bullpen sessions with catchers. The rest of the team is due to report on Sunday.

Everything in spring training is happening a little earlier this year, because the World Baseball Classic is occurring in March and the participating players need to be ready. Actual Cactus League games start on February 25th – usually they don’t begin until March 1 or 2.

Personally, I’ll be headed to Arizona at the end of March. It’s important for me to go toward the end of camp, when we have a clearer picture of who is going to be on the Rainiers roster. As always, we’ll have daily blog reports during my visit.

In the meantime, you should grab your Rainiers opening weekend tickets tomorrow. If you aren’t a season ticket holder, Wednesday is your opportunity to grab the best seats for the opening homestand – including the home opener on April 11.

Opening homestand tickets go on sale at 10:00 AM on Wednesday, with online sales via TacomaRainiers.com.

Lots of links from the past few days:

New post coming Thursday with our final Rainiers spring training positional preview: the relief pitchers.
