Vlad Guerrero released from jail, maintains his innocence

2 Comments

Yesterday Vlad Guerrero was arrested for allegedly attacking a police officer. Today he was released, and he denies that he did anything wrong:

Given that he denies all wrongdoing, those jokes from yesterday about him swinging at everything are totally premature.  Sorry.  But today’s jokes about how strange it is to see him take a walk — even if it is out of jail — are timely.

Hisashi Iwakuma tells the Japan Times that the Mariners have made him an offer to return.

Iwakuma became a free agent earlier this month after the Mariners, not surprisingly, declined his $10 million option for 2018. Iwakuma says that it’s “not a done deal,” but “hopefully I will be able to make a positive announcement soon.”

Iwakuma, who turns 37 early next season, made only six starts in 2017, posting a 4.35 ERA, 3.5 BB/9 and 4.6 SO/9 over 31 innings. He went on the disabled list in May and never returned to action, undergoing arthroscopic debridement surgery in September. He hopes to be recovered fully by spring training.
