• Mariners catcher Jesus Montero continues to feast on left-handed pitchers, ranking fifth in the American League with his .359 batting average. Seattle faces lefty Zach Britton on Tuesday, the only southpaw they'll see in this series.
• Mariners starters had the lowest ERA in the Majors in July at 2.73, which set a club record for the lowest ERA in any single month. The old mark was 2.81, set in September/October of 1993.
• Rookie reliever Carter Capps, the youngest player on the Mariners, turns 22 on Tuesday. He is just the second player from the 2011 First-Year Player Draft to make his Major League debut, joining D-backs pitcher Trevor Bauer.
• Reliever Charlie Furbush, on the 15-day disabled list with a left triceps strain, was scheduled to pitch an inning for Triple-A Tacoma in his second rehab appearance on Monday night. Wedge said if everything went well, he'll then rejoin the Mariners.
• Center fielder Franklin Gutierrez continues working out with Tacoma, but still isn't ready to begin his 20-day rehab stint as he comes back from a concussion on June 29.
"He had a pretty good day [on Sunday], but we have to start stringing them together before he starts playing," Wedge said.
