• Montero was at catcher for a second straight game on Wednesday, the first time he's gone back-to-back this season. Manager Eric Wedge said John Jaso would be behind the plate in Thursday's day game.
Wedge also indicated Mike Carp would play Thursday for the first time since being activated from the disabled list.
• Franklin Gutierrez, still in Peoria, Ariz., working to come back from several injuries, did some running Wednesday for the first time since being diagnosed with a plantar fasciitis problem in his heel.
"He had a good day," Wedge said. "He did some short sprints, felt good, good enough where he'll keep moving around for a few days and we'll see if we can get through this."
• Olivo was off his crutches and walking around without much of a limp on Wednesday, looking much better than when he initially went down with a strained groin muscle on Monday night. Olivo went on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday and will be examined further when the team returns to Seattle on Friday.
"With regard to what we saw on the field to where he is now, he's doing great," Wedge said. "You know with his work ethic and attitude, he'll be back as soon as humanly possible."
