Daily coverage of the Mariners during the season and all year long.

Morning briefing

It’s Day 24 of the Mariners’ first spring training under Eric Wedge, moving past the halfway point of the 44-day total.
The Mariners will spend it working out here in Peoria in the morning, then making the short trip to Glendale for a game against the Dodgers.
A lot of regulars back in the lineup today under Wedge’s plan — at the moment — to play the regulars one day, then a lot of the youngsters the next. That will obviously change as camnp progresses. But for today, you get something of an “A” team for the first few innings at least.
Here’s the lineup:
Ichiro, RF
Chone Figgins, 3B
Franklin Gutierrez, CF
Jack Cust, DH
Adam Kennedy, 1B
Jack Wilson, 2B
Michael Saunders, LF
Josh Bard, C
Josh Wilson, SS
Doug Fister, P
One interesting thing there is obviously Jack Wilson getting another start at second, which could be an option for the team depending on Dustin Ackley’s progress.
Other pitchers who could go today include David Pauley, Brandon League, Garrett Olson, Dan Cortes, Edward Paredes, Royce Ring and Chaz Roe.
Here’s the lineup for the Dodgers:
Rafeal Furcal, SS
Casey Blake, 3B
Andre Ethier, RF
Matt Kemp, DH
James Loney, 1B
Juan Uribe, 2B
Jay Gibbons, LF
Rod Barajas, C
Tony Gwynn Jr., CF
Jon Garland, P
Seattle’s pitching rotation also appears set for the next few days with Erik Bedard set to make his third spring start on Thursday against the Angels in Peoria, then Michael Pineda and Nate Robertson going on Friday against the Indians in Goodyear. Felix Hernandez is set to pitch again Saturday, though that may be just against minor league hitters here in camp since the Mariners are hosting the A’s that day.
So far today, doesn’t appear to be any other personnel news.
