Full Squad Reports

Mariners spring training took another big step forward over President’s Weekend, with the position players reporting to camp. The full squad is in Peoria.

Soon we’ll have not just photos of guys stretching and playing catch, but actual games. The Mariners annual charity game against the Padres is Saturday, and that will start the Cactus League season.

There isn’t much to report on from the Rainiers perspective yet. Manager Pat Listach is in camp, helping out the major league staff at least until the Triple-A games get underway in mid-March. That means throwing batting practice, hitting lots of fungos, and working with the infielders on fielding technique.

Listach is probably already keeping an eye on the many new players in camp who could open the season in Tacoma, learning their strengths and weaknesses.

The many stories from over the weekend focused on the Mariners major league roster, and the key position players who reported to camp. There is one story on potential Rainiers reliever Nick Hagadone, who is trying to come back from a serious injury and a long layoff.


We’re getting closer!
