Here’s the line-up for today’s game against the Angels. It will be a big day for Jeremy Bonderman as he is scheduled to pitch four innings. People have mentioned on Twitter about Franklin Gutierrez’s absence in the lineup the past few days. He last played on March 9. We talked to Gutierrez, who said he has some stiffness in his legs. The Mariners decided to give him a break from games, but he’s still been at the complex every day taking BP and doing his normal work.
The Mariners get to see Josh Hamilton for the first time this spring. No Mike Trout in the line-up, which is always disappointing.
