Worth noting

• Hisashi Iwakuma gets the start on Monday when the Mariners travel to Phoenix Municipal to face the A's at 1:05 p.m. PT, then it will be Brandon Maurer on Tuesday against the Giants in a 7:05 p.m. game at Peoria Stadium.

• Joe Saunders will pitch in a Minor League game on Tuesday and Jeremy Bonderman will do the same on Wednesday. The rest of the Mariners have Wednesday off, their final off-day before breaking camp on March 29.

• Michael Morse wasn't in the lineup on Sunday, but he's carrying a hot bat in recent days. Morse has reached base in his last seven plate appearances with two home runs, a double, a single, a walk and two hit-by-pitches. He's batting .375 this spring with five home runs and 10 RBIs.
