Yes, Virginia, it’s slim pickings trying to put together a formidible attack for Seattle, these days.
Ichiro remains out with a strained calf.
Ken Griffey Jr. misses a third game with a tender knee.
Adrian Beltre has a bruised cajone.
Russell Branyan, herniated disk.
The good news is, Ichiro could return Mondoay when the Angels come in, Beltre and Griffey should be ready Tuesday – when the Mariners can expand their roster and bring up, among others, first baseman Mike Carp.
For now, however, this is the lineup:
Franklin Gutierrez CF
Josh Wilson 3B
Jose Lopez 2B
Mike Sweeney DH
Bill Hall RF
Jack Hannahan 1B
Kenji Johjima C
Jack Wilson SS
Michael Saunders LF
Ryan Rowland-Smith LHP
