Pictures from Peoria: Thursday version
Today was Day 9 of Mariners camp and the fourth day of full-squad work. And yes, another step toward actual games as some pitchers threw live batting practice for the first time. There’s only one week until the first Cactus League game on Feb. 27, so guys will need to start getting their timing at the plate pretty quickly.
I have a story on Mariners.com today about Jesus Montero and his shift to first base. I also wrote about reliever Stephen Pryor’s comeback from a rare surgery as well as other news of the day in today’s notebook.
And if you’re looking for your daily fix of photos from camp, here’s today’s batch:
Abraham Almonte had to stretch for a pop up during a very windy drill for outfielders that had everyone scrambling.
