• The Mariners have 12 steals (13 attempts) in their last 11 games. That comes after collecting 17 in their first 37 contests. Michael Saunders and Ichiro Suzuki are tied for the team lead with seven steals.

• After two walks Friday, Kyle Seager has walked eight times in his last seven games. He collected just three free passes through his first 35 games.

• Injured outfielder Franklin Gutierrez (plantar fasciitis) ran for the second time Saturday, and could potentially take the next step in the rehab process Sunday in extended spring games in Arizona.

"I want to see how he feels today," Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. "I know he's up around that 70-80 percent, if he's not beyond that 70-80 percent today, then we'll probably have to keep him around here for another couple of days and then get him to Arizona."
