Pictures from Peoria on a sunny Saturday

We’re three days into the pitchers and catchers portion of Mariners camp and you can keep up with all the news and goings on from my stories on But sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’ll try to supplement those stories with frequent photo galleries on the blog over the coming weeks.

Here are some fun shots I got today while enjoying the 80-plus degree weather in Peoria:

Newly acquired closer Fernando Rodney and his tilted cap are going to be a visible presence at camp.

Rodney, Fernando

New skipper Lloyd McClendon talks with veteran pitcher Scott Baker, who looked good in his bullpen session today.


John Buck brings some veteran presence to the catching group and is one big dude as well.
Buck, John

Erasmo Ramirez works on fielding drills, which is a point of emphasis in the early days of camp.

Big right-hander Tom Wilhelmsen talks with Buck after his bullpen session.

Yoervis Medina will be an integral part of the bullpen plans again this year after a strong rookie season last year.

Mighty mighty fine, Mr. Johns.
Things are looking good. Now if we could just get Disqus back on the website articles, life would be good indeed.
