Mariners catcher Miguel Olivo made his second rehab appearance for Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday, going 0-for-5 with three strikeouts as the designated hitter. Olivo, on the disabled list with a strained right groin, is expected to catch Wednesday and hopefully rejoin the Mariners this weekend.
Ichiro Suzuki has 290 career hits against Texas, second only to George Brett (291). Ichiro has a chance to eclipse Brett on Tuesday and Wednesday in Seattle and then again in Texas on May 28-30.
The Mariners entered Tuesday's game with the Rangers on a four-game winning streak, tied for their longest of the season. They have not won five straight since May 18-23 of last season, when they took six consecutive contests.
