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
