Worth noting

• Manager Eric Wedge said reports remain good on Franklin Gutierrez during the center fielder's rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Tacoma. He said the team will continue having him play for the Rainiers for the time being. Gutierrez has been on the disabled list since April 23 with a strained right hamstring. Rules mandate he cannot stay on a rehab assignment in the Minor Leagues beyond 20 days, which for him means beyond June 3.

• Kendrys Morales may have to be dragged onto the team plane as it leaves for San Diego following the game. Entering Tuesday's homestand finale he was batting .462 (18-for-39) with five doubles, two home runs, 14 RBIs and a 1.244 OPS in his last nine games at Safeco Field.

• Erasmo Ramirez allowed three hits and two runs, one earned, in five innings for Double-A Jackson to begin a rehabilitation assignment. He walked two and struck out three. A candidate for the Mariners' rotation during Spring Training, Ramirez was optioned late in March. He then developed triceps tendinitis and went on the Minor League disabled list.
