Mariner lineup on Saturday vs. A’s: Montero behind plate

Here is Saturday’s Mariner lineup against Oakland lefty Tommy Milone, who in his first start of the season worked eight shutout innings against Kansas City, allowing just three hits (with three walks and no strikeouts):
Chone Figgins CF
Dustin Ackley 2B
Ichiro RF
Justin Smoak 1B
Jesus Montero C
Alex Liddi 3B
Miguel Olivo DH
Casper Wells LF
Brendan Ryan SS
Hector Noesi RHP


Manager Eric Wedge is obviously flooding the lineup with right-handed bats against Milone. I’m glad to see Jesus Montero back behind the plate, after an encouraging catching debut against the Rangers. Not sure I’m on board with Miguel Olivo and his .143 average at DH, but again, it’s the right-hander thing. Their entire bench is lefties — Kyle Seager, Michael Saunders, John Jaso and Munenori Kawasaki.
The Mariners enter the game having dropped to last in the American League (and 28th in the majors) in OPS at .614.
