Mariners may change uniform color scheme in 2014

In doing some Internet sleuthing, Chris Creamer of SportsLogos.net found a Facebook post by Ebbets Field Flannels, which was “quickly deleted”:

“Doing some informal consulting for the Seattle Mariners on their 2014 uniforms. They are going creme instead of white for the home (we love it). We are gently pushing for them to lose the teal and adapt old gold as the secondary color after navy.”

Creamer points out that the color scheme would be similar to that of the Seattle Pilots in 1969, before they moved to Milwaukee to become the Brewers. The Mariners debuted in 1977 and also used a similar color scheme until rebranding in 1993.

The Angels have signed pitcher Matt Harvey to a one-year contract, MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports. Fancred’s Jon Heyman reports that the contract is for $11 million with an additional $3 million available through performance incentives.

Harvey, 29, spent 2018 with the Mets and Reds, posting an aggregate 4.94 ERA with a 131/37 K/BB ratio in 155 innings. He started off poorly with the Mets, so they traded him to the Reds in early May. He pitched much better in Cincinnati.

Harvey should have a spot secured at the back of the Angels’ rotation, but health and performance can always change that leading up to Opening Day.
