Worth noting

• Left-handed reliever Joe Beimel said he's back to feeling 100 percent after pitching for the first time in 12 days with a perfect inning Thursday against the Cubs. Beimel is coming back from Tommy John surgery, but said inflammation in his elbow last week apparently was due instead to a virus he caught that got into his joints.

"Never had that happen before," he said. "But everything is feeling fine now and yesterday was the best I've thrown all spring."

• Right-hander Brandon Maurer threw a bullpen session Friday as he began his return from a sore back and neck that have sidelined him since March 10.

• If Cano can push his spring total up to the necessary 50 at-bats to be included in Cactus League records, he has an excellent chance to set a Mariners record for highest spring batting average. Cano was hitting .567 (17-for-30) going into Friday night's game. The club record is .492 (32-for-65) by Michael Morse in 2008.

Ackley's .457 mark (21-for-46) going into Friday's action would rank him seventh all-time on the Mariners' spring list.
