• Outfielder Michael Saunders was expected to rejoin the Mariners on Wednesday night and manager Eric Wedge said he'd be back in the lineup for Thursday's series finale with the Angels after his wife gave birth to their first child, a daughter, on Tuesday in Colorado.

• Saturday afternoon's game at Oakland will not be televised, as the game is scheduled during the FOX-TV exclusive window at 1:07 p.m., but has not been picked up by FOX.

• Sunday's 1:07 p.m. series finale in Oakland will be on KTTH 770-AM radio instead of ESPN 710 Seattle, because of a conflict with the Seahawks game that day. That game will be televised on ROOT Sports.
