Friday morning briefing — Bradley accused of spousal abuse, and more notes

Bob Condotta filling in for the next 10 days or so for Geoff Baker, taking a well-deserved break from the rigors of spring training.
And the news this morning begins on the not-so-bright side as outfielder Milton Bradley is being accused of spousal abuse in divorce papers filed by his wife, Monique, according to Radaronline.com.
Bradley already was scheduled for a March 9 meeting with the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office to discuss an earlier charge of making criminal threats against his .
wife.
At the moment, no comment yet from anyone here in Peoria.
Bradley is scheduled to play today for the Mariners against the Reds in a game set for 12:05 p.m. (Seattle time) against the Reds.
Here’s the lineup:
Ichiro Suzuki, RF
Chone Figgins, 3B
Milton Bradley, LF
Jack Cust, DH
Justin Smoak, 1B
Gabe Gross, CF
Josh Wilson, SS
Dustin Ackley, 2B
Adam Moore, C
Doug Fister is the starting pitcher, expected to go three innings in his second start of the spring.
Other pitchers who could see action are David Pauley, Fabio Castro, Chris Smith, Edward Paredes, Jose Flores, Josh Lueke and the just-acquired Aaron Laffey.
HERNANDEZ TO PITCH MONDAY — Also, we were told this morning that Felix Hernandez will make his first official spring start on Monday against Oakland (a game at the A’s facility in Phoenix).
Hernandez threw a 33-pitch simulated game on Thursday and afterward pronounced himself ready for a game. The team is again trying to ease the workload for the 24-year-old after he threw an AL-high 249-2/3 innings last season.
