FORT WORTH, Texas — The Extra Innings podcast returns as beat writer Ryan Divish and columnist Larry Stone discuss the Mariners’ recent roster move to option Guillermo Heredia to Class AAA Tacoma to make room for pitcher Erasmo Ramirez, which meant that Ichiro remained on the roster for the foreseeable future.

The two old baseball scribes try to analyze the possible thinking behind it, the repercussions and the perception of the organization. And they also try to determine how long Ichiro will remain with the team and the upcoming roster move for Ryon Healy, who is on a rehab assignment with Class AA Arkansas.

Besides the Ichiro talk, there was some early discussion on the hot start of Mitch Haniger and the return of Mike Zunino.
