George Springer has hit safely in his first five Major Leagues games, entering Monday's game in Seattle with a .273 batting average.
Although Springer has at least one hit in each of his first five games, he has also struck out at least one in every game, while drawing only one free pass. He is going to be a very special player for years to come, just be prepared to take the bad with the good while he adjusts to big league pitching. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Mariners designated LHP Mike Kickham for assignment.
At 26-years old, it looks like the Mariners were fed up with Kickham's antics, as his inflated ERA and walk rate gave them no indication that he could get a grasp on professional pitching. Even if he gets picked up, don't expect Kickham to get a call to the show at any point this season. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Packers have released C Joe Madsen.
Madsen isn't a very athletic center and in today's NFL, it appears that is the direction that the position is beginning to head. The Packers said good riddance, but there is nothing saying that there won't be at least a couple of teams looking to give Madsen a training camp invite. Analysis: Dom Murtha
