Pictures from Peoria: The first weekend

While my main duty at MLB.com is to provide stories for Mariners.com, I enjoy taking photos during Spring Training as well. So as often as possible — or when I get a few in focus — I’ll put up some pics here on the blog over the next few weeks. Here’s a little of what’s going on the first weekend at camp.

Wilson-Servais

Minor League catching coordinator Dan Wilson and new Mariners skipper Scott Servais keep a keen eye on the action in the bullpen.

ZuninoFrame

One of the things catchers are focusing on more this year is pitch framing. Here’s Mike Zunino keeping it square in the middle of the plate in a drill with a pitching machine.

MileyWade

Wade Miley, acquired by trade from the Red Sox, will be one of the key newcomers in the rotation.

ParkerBlake

Former Cubs reliever Blake Parker, one of several veterans in camp on non-roster invites, takes a minute to make a couple fans happy.

DavisAlvin

Alvin Davis, who’ll forever be known as Mr. Mariner, is in camp once again working as a Minor League roving instructor.

Karns

Nathan Karns, another of the offseason trade acquisitions from Tampa Bay, looked strong in his first bullpen session on Sunday.

AroClevenger

Reliever Jonathan Aro and catcher Steve Clevenger, two more newcomers, shake hands after a throwing session. Aro was acquired from the Red Sox and Clevenger from the Orioles.

FelixST

And, yes, there are still some familiar faces in camp, including the King.
