Don’t forget Geoff Baker Live! coming to you as tonight’s pre-game show at 6 p.m.
We’ve heard talk about it since last night, but the Mariners finally announced the trade of minor league infielder Chris Burke back to the San Diego Padres for cash considerations. Burke was acquired with a week to go in spring training and had been in Class AAA since the season began.
A look above at the Mariners doing some pitchers’ fielding practice as I type this.
We’ll have the lineups shortly and will know whether Yuniesky Betancourt will start tonight.
