Sunday’s lineup

Catcher Jamie Burke has been selected from Class Triple A Tacoma and will be starting on Sunday as Rob Johnson’s in-step is injured. It’s not serious enough to put him on the disabled list, but he might not be ready until the end of the upcoming series with Baltimore.
Right-handed pitcher Denny Stark was designated for assignment to make room for Burke.
Left-handed pitcher Ryan Rowland-Smith will stay with Tacoma and will not start against Baltimore on June 11 as Seattle had been planning. Rowland-Smith did not pitch well on Friday, and there is no timetable on when he’ll be ready.
Onto today’s lineup:

VISITING TEAM Avg. HR   HOME TEAM Avg. HR
No. 1 LF Denard Span .296 4   No. 1 RF Ichiro .354 5
