Mariners notebook: Let’s play 2 plus injury updates

PEORIA, Ariz. – The Mariners have day-night split squad games Friday, and with so many players still away for the World Baseball Classic that means a lot of minor leaguers get to sport the Mariners’ one-use-only St. Patrick’s Day caps. Double bonus for the kids.

Drayer: Mariners option Boog Powell, Chase De Jong to Triple-A

Because there is so much going on due to the unconventional doubleheader-like split squad games, there was no morning meeting as a number of players from big league camp were not required to be at the Mariners’ complex until later in the day. With the night game, Saturday will most likely be a show-and-go with little to no work on the field before. And with a forecast of 95 degrees for Saturday afternoon, no extra work is probably not a bad idea. The temps and the absences make for a rather unusual week of spring training, and some interesting lineups.

Notes

• Mariners Hall of Famer Jamie Moyer arrived in camp Friday morning and got right to work helping out with bullpen sessions. He has had quite a few conversations with Andrew Moore, who follows Yovani Gallardo today in the game against the Diamondbacks.

• Pitcher Rob Whalen was on crutches this morning. Turns out he suffered a calf strain yesterday, though it is not serious.

• Tony Zych is scheduled to throw another live batting practice session this weekend. If all goes well he could get into a game next week.

• Steve Cishek continues to progress with his throwing program and could throw his first bullpen as soon as next Thursday.

Drew Smyly is back from the WBC. His next start for the Mariners is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday either against the A’s or in a minor league game.
