Here is Marco Scutaro during the fourth inning of last night’s Giants-Astros game:
I’ll say, I wasn’t the biggest fan of those Giants throwback, alternate road jerseys when they came out, but they’re growing on me some. But, hey, Marco, why are you wearing that when your teammates were all wearing this:
Frankly, given how many alternate uniforms teams have now, I’m surprised this doesn’t happen more often.
Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com has the story.
MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.
Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.
The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
