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

Morning briefing — Lineups, and more

Kind of a busy morning already out here at Mariner camp.
As detailed in the post below, the Mariners cut two players today, pitchers Blake Beavan and Yoervis Medina. They also held a ceremony to give championship rings to players and coaches from Tacoma and Everett, which won titles in their respective leagues last season, capping what was a good year for the Mariners farm system (we’ll have more on that later).
As for the game today, the Mariners will travel to Tempe to play the Angels, and as has been the custom throughout camp, many of the regulars who played in yesterday’s home game are taking today’s game off.
Here’s the lineup:
Jack Wilson, SS
Brendan Ryan, 2B
Milton Bradley, DH
Ryan Langerhans, RF
Matt Tuiasosopo, 1B
Gabe Gross, LF
Michael Saunders, CF
Josh Wilson, 3B
Adam Moore, C
Jason Vargas, P
Others who could pitch are Denny Bautista, Charlie Haeger, Dan Cortes, Fabio Castro, Chris Smith, Edward Parades, Josh Lueke and Aaron Laffey.
And among others making the trip and could play are Justin Smoak and Dustin Ackley.
One to watch today may be Tuiasosopo. As detailed earlier this week, the organization has asked him to now concentrate on first base and outfield, and a lot of observers wonder if there will be room for him this year — he has an option, so he can be sent down.
But much more quietly than the last two years, Tuiasosopo is again having a good spring, up to .429 (6-14) with two doubles.
As for today’s links. …
Larry Stone wrote today about the experience of the young players who got to face Felix Hernandez in an intrasquad game Saturday morning.
— I wrote about the Mariners getting a little payoff (at least for a day) from the Cliff Lee trade.
— SoDoMojo writes a little bit about the moves the Mariners made yesterday.
