Worth noting

• Wedge said Hisashi Iwakuma remained on schedule for his next start Sunday against the Angels but would then most likely be pushed back several days for the following start when the Mariners finally have some off days to work with in early May. Iwakuma has been bothered by a blister on his middle finger on his throwing hand that has limited his innings.

• Kendrys Morales' eighth-inning home run Tuesday was estimated at 444 feet, which made it the longest homer at Minute Maid Park this season. The previous long? That would have been Jesus Montero's 441-foot bomb the previous night.
