All of Monday's tweets on the Mariners in one place. Not instantaneous. For that, you've got to follow me on twitter at @TNT_Mariners but will try to update regularly.
Latest stuff on top.
5:37: #Mariners' roster close to being set; Iwakuma makes progress. bit.ly/1gvEhul
5:09: #Mariners confirm RHP Scott Baker declined an assignment to Triple-A Tacoma and was granted his release.
4:23: #Mariners' comeback falls short in 7-6 loss to White Sox. The capsule report from our Insiders' blog. bit.ly/1rqBo10
3:50: No confirmation from #Mariners (yet) on release of RHP Scott Baker, No reason, though, to doubt report by @ChrisCotillo.
3:32 (retweet): @ChrisCotillo: Source: Scott Baker asked for and was granted his release from the #Mariners.
3:13: Robinson Cano with three-run double, and #Mariners back to within 7-6 in seventh.
2:49: Blake Beavan's final line: 5 1/3 IO, 7 R, 7 H, 0 BB, 3 SO, two homers. Threw 85 pitches 61 for strikes.
2:48: Beavan's streak ends at 11 when Conor Gillespie opens sixth with a double. Beavan's day ends when Paul Konerko hits one-out homer.
2:25: That's 11 in a row for Beavan but #Marienrs still trail White Sox 5-2 going to bottom of fifth.
2:11: Beavan has retired eight in a row since Semien's three-run homer.
1:57: A bounce-back third for Blake Beavan. Three ground-ball outs.
1:50: FYI, that would be a mistake. @thedeejenks FYI, sir, every time I see the "CWS" abbreviation, I think "College World Series"
1:44: Dustin Ackley's RBI double gets #Mariners on board. Trail CWS 5-1 in second. Ackley is 24 for 56 (.429).
1:32 (retweet): @MLBPipeline: Not a prospect question, but I'll say Zunino. @Wait4ItSeattle: Who breaks out - Ackley, Saunders, Zunino or Smoak?
1:30: Beavan? Good contact. Line drives. @wait4itseattle hit hard?
1:29: Now, Beavan yields three-run homer to Marcus Semien. Sox lead 5-0.
1:27: Not just Saunders error. Beavan has allowed four straight one-out hits in CWS second.
1:26: Two-base error by #Mariners RF Michael Saunders helps CWS take 2-0 lead in second. Runner on first with one out.
1:22: Picked Felix as RHP. Lots of good alternatives. @jbhusker15 Because ESPN only cares about MLB teams on the East Coast or teams in SoCal.
1:17 (retweet): @MLBPipeline: Could end up at 1B, bat gets him there by 2016@Chrispirations: What is likelihood DJ Peterson changes positions and if so, where? ETA?
1:16: Why? @jbhusker15 Sadly though, Cano could have a "Cano-Like" season with the Mariners in 2014, and ESPN will no longer rate him as the best
1:10: ESPN's Baseball Tonight has rated Robinson Cano as game's best 2B, and Felix Hernandez as game's best RHP.
1:10 (retweet): @MLBPipeline: Incredibly high, toolsy RFer, but will he hit enough to get there? @GaryTadg: Austin Wilson's ceiling for @Mariners?
12:29: #Mariners' game today vs. CWS is televised on CSN Chicago and MLB.tv (for subscribers). Will be replayed at 4 am Tuesday on MLB Network.
11:50: …INFs Chris Taylor, D.J. Peterson and Tyler Smith.

11:47: #Mariners RHP Hisashi Iwakuma on the spring's most-anticipated game of catch. From our Insiders blog. bit.ly/1dq1b65
11:27: Iwakuma on full flexibility in middle finger: "Not yet. Hopefully soon. It’s still stiff right now. I’m still working on full flexibility."
11:25: Iwakuma said plan was: "Just going lightly for about 6-7 minutes out to 45 feet." Will throw each day from now on.
11:23: Iwakuma: "It felt good. The ball felt great going out of the finger. I look forward to making progress from here on."
11:21: Iwakuma says first session of playing catch went well but still doesn't have full range of motion in finger.
9:52: Hisashi Iwakuma playing catch as scheduled. Pitching coach Rick Waits joked Kuma will be up to 5 innings by weekend. (Repeat "joked")
8:29: McClendon would like to have three lefty relievers but "not sure if we’re going to be able to do that."
8:28: White Sox vs. #Mariners: De Aza 8, Garcia 9, Gillaspie 5, Abreu 3, Konerko DH, Viciedo 7, Ramirez 6, Flowers 2, Semien 4 and Johnson 1.
8:26: Have heard nothing new. @wexlerrules Any traction regarding a Met/Mariner deal? McIllvaine must be tired of seeing the Mets by now lol #mets
8:24: Smoak and Hart not in today's lineup. @jkrom34 if today's lineup is any indication of what Seager dropping down would be, he would hit 4
8:23: McClendon says no roster cuts are anticipated today. #Mariners still at 39 on camp roster. Opener is one week from tonight in Anaheim.
8:18: Yes. But nothing to indicate that will happen. @rotoprofessor Is Ackley a candidate to slide back up to the leadoff spot as well?
8:18: Maybe two if Seager drops down. @slickhawk12 @forecasterpeter where does that leave Miller? 8/9 hitter?
8:16: Already said he could. But Almonte in there again today. Intent seems clear. @forecasterpeter Ask him if Miller could lead off for the team?
8:14: McClendon didn't dispute that Ramirez and Paxton are lined up to start second and third games behind Hernandez. (But didn't confirm)
8:12: Stephen Pryor and Brandon Maurer will each work one inning Tuesday in a minor-league game.
8:12: McClendon says RHP Taijuan Walker slotted for three innings Tuesday in minor-league game.
8:11: Q to McClendon: Is Miller your shortstop? Answer: "He is today." True, Miller is starting against the White Sox.
7:45: #Mariners RHP Hisashi Iwakuma scheduled today to throw a baseball (play catch) for first time since Feb. 10 diagnosis of finger injury.
7:29: #Mariners vs. White Sox: Almonte 8, Miller 6, Cano 4, Seager 5, Romero DH, Morrison 3, Ackley 7, Saunders 9, Zunino 2 and Beavan 1.
6:37: #Mariners on list. @ken_rosenthal All teams face pressure to win, but for these eight, the heat is on. Column: msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/the-…
