Jesus Montero back in first Mariners lineup of rest of season

Not quite a season opener for the Mariners here in Oakland


tonight even if it kind of feels like one. But at least the Mariners — already down Franklin Gutierrez and Mike Carp — won’t have to worry about any more regulars going missing prior to this third clash of the season with the Oakland Athletics.

That’s because Jesus Montero, beaned in the head a few days ago in Arizona, is back in the lineup as a DH and hitting fifth. Kyle Seager is at third base, as expected, while Chone Figgins moves out to left field as Carp’s replacement.

Here is the full Mariners lineup:

LF Chone Figgins
2B Dustin Ackley
RF Ichiro
1B Justin Smoak
DH Jesus Montero
3B Kyle Seager
C Miguel Olivo
CF Michael Saunders
SS Brendan Ryan

LHP Jason Vargas
