It’s always nice for an organization when a top pitching prospect gets close to big league ready. When that prospect becomes a model for how to get ready for that moment for the entire system, that’s a bonus. And that’s who Logan Gilbert has become to the Mariners. In 2018,

It’s taken him four-plus years and three organizations, but Taylor Trammell is now a big leaguer. While that might seem like a long time and a circuitous route, the outfielder -- currently ranked No. 97 on MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 list -- made his big league debut last week at
