The Chicago Cubs hired Joe Maddon as manager. Maddon led Tampa Bay to the playoffs four times in nine seasons. The Cubs fired Rick Renteria, who was 73-89 in his only season as the team’s manager. Renteria played for the Mariners in the 1980s.
This was in the works as the 2014 season was coming to an end, but it was made official today. Mariners all-star pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma was added to the MLB all-star team that will be touring Japan in November. The team of MLB all-stars will play a five-game series and two exhibition game agai
Police say up to 2 million Giants fans could turn out to cheer the World Series champions in a downtown San Francisco parade featuring double-decker buses for the players and floats of the Golden Gate Bridge.
Baseball’s business season began Thursday when 121 players become free agents, a group that includes Pablo Sandoval, Michael Morse, Jake Peavy, Sergio Romo and Ryan Vogelsong of the World Series champion San Francisco Giants.
Hardly a surprise, but his contract option was automatically exercised at $7 million.
Hisashi Iwakuma will be back for the 2015 season. The Mariners announced that his $7 million option for 2015 had been exercised. However, they didn't decide on the option. Per a source, Iwakuma did enough in 2014 - 15-9 with a 3.52 ERA in 28 starts - and last season to have the option vest
To be a Mariners’ fan is to live in mortal fear of every discarded prospect blossoming into stardom in another uniform. It doesn’t happen quite as often as you think, but it sure seems that way because of a few spectacular examples. Justin Smoak could be another one.
Here's a list from the MLB player's association of player's who will become a free agent on 12:01 a.m. Tuesday. There are more than 30 players who may become free agents if the options on their respective contracts are not picked up -- Billy Butler ($12.5 milllion club option, Adam LaRoche ($15

Royals get to Jake Peavy early, take 7-0 lead after two innings to tie Series before raucous home crowd.
First baseman Justin Smoak, the key to the 2009 trade that sent Cliff Lee to Texas, was claimed off waivers Tuesday by the Toronto Blue Jays. Smoak hit .202 with seven home runs in 80 games last season.
St. Louis Cardinals officials and players were among thousands of people who crowded into a cemetery in the Dominican Republic for the burial of former major-league outfielder Oscar Taveras, 22.
As expected, Justin Smoak won't be back with the Seattle Mariners next season. It became obvious at the end of the 2014 season that the team was going to move on from the switch-hitting first baseman.
Here's this week's Mariners' winter league report from Kelly Munro
The Arizona Fall League announced the rosters for the 2014 Fall-Stars game on Monday. Mariners' top hitting prospect DJ Peterson was named to the West Division squad. Peterson is hitting just .191 (5-for-47) with a homer and three doubles and a .641 OPS in 13 games. But the selections aren't ba
