• Center fielder Franklin Gutierrez is eligible to come off the seven-day concussion disabled list on Friday, but manager Eric Wedge didn't sound like that was going to happen after meeting with him on Monday.

"He's still a little off," Wedge said. "I think it would be a stretch to say he'd be back before the All-Star break. Having said that, he's having a total evaluation today and maybe he comes in feeling great, but I wouldn't count on it. He's getting better, but he's not where he needs to be quite yet."

• Rookie reliever Stephen Pryor, on the DL with a pulled groin muscle, threw a bullpen session and did some fielding drills to test his sore leg on Tuesday. He'll travel with the team to Oakland this weekend to continue his work, then likely will go out on a rehab stint after that, Wedge said.

• Michael Saunders was back in the lineup on Tuesday after missing four days with the stomach flu.

• First-round Draft pick Mike Zunino took batting practice with the Mariners after signing his contract on Tuesday. And after a slow start, the catcher from Florida ripped a series of deep drives into the seats in left field, including a couple impressive upper-deck shots.

"He looked good," said Wedge. "He hadn't hit in a couple weeks and the more he was in there, with the wood bat and all, the more comfortable he was. There's a lot to like there."
