Worth noting

• The Mariners have two games on Friday, with a Cactus League game against the Angels at 1:10 p.m. PT in Tempe and a World Baseball Classic exhibition against The Netherlands at 7:05 p.m. in Peoria.

Jeremy Bonderman will get the start and is expected to throw four innings against the Angels, with Andrew Carraway to follow. Jon Garland will be on the hill first against The Netherlands, with Lucas Luetge, Stephen Pryor and Tom Wilhelmsen also slated in relief. Garland also is penciled in for four innings.

• There will be no radio coverage of Friday's game against the Angels, but the night game against The Netherlands will be carried live on 710 ESPN Seattle.

• Casper Wells returned to the lineup on Thursday after sitting out four games with a stiff neck. The Mariners' outfielder still was tied for the Cactus League lead with 12 RBIs going entering play on Thursday.

• Mariners relievers lead all Major League teams in strikeouts this spring with 122 going into Thursday's games. The next closest team was the Blue Jays with 112, while the Royals were second in the Cactus League with 100.
