Here's what Carlos Santana just told me about possibly returning to Cleveland: "I'm so happy to maybe have the opportunity to go back home, back to my team, being back with the Indians staff, and especially being back with the fans in Cleveland."

I don't think this happened back when Earl Weaver was managing: Scott Servais mentioned that Dee Gordon face timed him the other night to show him the new house he had just bought -- and his new big-screen TV. He also said Gordon's text after one of the team's trades: "I guess we're going younger, skip."

Mariners manager Scott Servais says he's fully "on board" as the team takes a step backward with this year's offseason moves. He says the strength of the Red Sox, Yankees and Red Sox was a factor in the decision-making process for the organization.

Cowart eyes Ohtani feat despite 'huge workload'

Kaleb Cowart, claimed by Seattle off waivers from the Angels, said he is excited about attempting to become the big league's second two-way player despite the inherent challenges.

Law: Mariners, Diamondbacks fared well in offseason trades (2:26)

The Mariners announced Kaleb Cowart as an infielder and a pitcher. Looks like they're going to try him as a two-way player. Cowart was a really good pitcher in high school and has always had a big arm.

Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto really has a knack for acquiring former players. Today, he claimed Kaleb Cowart off waivers from the Angels, the team that made him the 18th pick in 2010. Cowart has evolved into a switch-hitting utility guy who can play 3B, 1B, 2B and LF.

Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman will not hire a general manager to replace Farhan Zaidi this offseason, but he did hire Jeff Kingston as vice president and assistant GM. Kingston previously held the same title with the Mariners for nine years and oversaw the club's analytics department during that time.

Rebuilding teams, attendance has MLBPA worried

Baseball players are concerned the Mariners have become yet another rebuilding team and might be joined by others following a season of steep attendance drops among clubs that faded early and never contended for the playoffs.

Mariners-Phillies quick analysis: Makes sense for both teams. The Phillies get a sure thing at shortstop in Jean Segura after ranking worst in the majors in WAR at the position in 2018 and clear first base for Rhys Hoskins. The Mariners get long-term salary relief while gambling that J.P. Crawford's glove will be good enough to carry a so-so bat. The Phillies take on more money, but the Mariners take on more risk as Crawford still has to prove himself.


Trade sending Cano, Diaz to Mets now official

The Mariners have completed the deal that will send Robinson Cano and ace closer Edwin Diaz to the Mets for two highly rated prospects as well as outfielder Jay Bruce, reliever Anthony Swarzak and right-hander Gerson Bautista.
