Worth noting

• Second baseman Rougned Odor did not play Wednesday against the Mariners, but he is healthy. It's not due to an injury. Luis Sardinas made the start.

• Wednesday's 1:05 p.m. CST start time was the first of five day games for the Rangers in the next six days.

• Since the Mariners are only in Texas for two days, after a 6-2 loss Tuesday, the Rangers can't win the series. Texas is 0-4-1 in the last five series.

Chris Gimenez is the 39th player the Rangers have used this season with his start Wednesday. That is tied with the Yankees for most in the league.

• The Rangers and Mariners have tied the season series, 4-4. Seattle has won three of the last four, including two in a row.
