Worth noting

• Right-hander Brandon Maurer is scheduled to make his Cactus League debut on Wednesday after coming out of Sunday's live batting practice session with no issues. He'd missed almost a week due to a stiff back, but now will throw an inning or two in relief of James Paxton in Wednesday's game against the Indians in Peoria.

• Veteran right-hander Matt Palmer continues to be sidelined by a sore calf. The non-roster invitee is part of the group expected to compete for rotation berths, but has yet to pitch in a Cactus League game.

Felix Hernandez will pitch two innings Tuesday in his Cactus League debut against the Dodgers in Glendale. The 12:05 p.m. PT game will be shown live to MLB.TV subscribers, as well as free on the MLB Network on a delayed basis starting at 1 p.m. PT. There will be no radio broadcast of Tuesday's game.

• D.J. Peterson, last year's first-round Draft pick, was one of a large group of Minor League players who played in the late innings for the Mariners against the Rockies in Monday's 8-1 split-squad win. Peterson wasn't invited to Major League camp as the club wanted to bring him back slowly after he missed the last month of his first pro season with a broken jaw. He flied out in his lone at-bat against Rockies' 2013 first-round Draft pick Jon Gray.

Logan Morrison saw his first action in the field this spring Monday, starting at first base and going 1-for-3 in Seattle's 6-5 split-squad victory over the Reds after playing strictly DH his first two games as he returns from knee issues that caused him to miss most of the last two springs. He's hitting .625 (5-for-8).
