Update 11:47 p.m. 

Michael Saunders will go out on a rehab assignment with Class AAA Tacoma on Thursday. The Rainiers are off today as they travel back from scenic Albuquerque.

Asked Saunders how long  he needed on his rehab stint?

He replied: “Till I get my timing back.”

How many games till you get your timing back?

“Four at-bats,” he joked.

Obviously it will be longer than that.

“With hitters, and I’ve said this before, but you need to be hitting good,” manager Lloyd McClendon said. “I don’t want you wasting at-bats up here. You waste them on your rehab start.”

*******

Chris Taylor gets another start. He’s going to see more playing time with the way he is playing.

“He’s performing well,” McClendon said. “He’s swinging the bat well, playing solid defense. Brad will get in there from time to time, but right now Taylor is going to play a little bit more.”

*******

Willie Bloomquist is meeting with doctors today. His bruised knee is not progressing as fast they had hoped. Corey Hart is not doing any activity for the next four days and then will start rehabbing his knee. It doesn’t seem like either will be back before rosters expand on Sept. 1

From earlier 

Chris Taylor gets bumped up in the order today as McClendon tries to stay left-right-left as much as possible. And Sucre also has to bat ninth in any lineup he’s unless it’s in a NL park.

The only player to ever face Julio Teheran on the Mariners is Logan Morrison.

Based on his career splits, lefties may have a mild advantage …

It’s not quite as dramatic this season …
