June 23 — A’s vs. Mariners lineup and notes

Bob Condotta filling in today as the Mariners attempt to win a series against the A’s. First pitch is 1:10 p.m.

No real big news here, though it’s noteworthy that Franklin Gutierrez is in the lineup for a second straight game, and the offshoot of that is a day off for Kendrys Morales, whose 279 at-bats are second on the team behind the 290 of Kyle Seager.

Manager Eric Wedge said it’s simply a good chance to get Morales some time off with an off day tomorrow, as well.

It’s also a chance for Gutierrez to built on the momentum of last night when he went 2-4 with a double and a homer.

Wedge noted that the performance showed the kind of “difference-maker” Gutierrez can be and that “we’ve missed him this year more than anybody.”

Wedge also said the Mariners are a little short in the bullpen today with two guys unavailable. He didn’t mention which two but the assumption is it’s Yoervis Medina and Danny Farquhar.
