Worth noting

• Erasmo Ramirez was scratched from Monday's start for Triple-A Tacoma, with Forrest Snow moved up a day to replace him. Manager Lloyd McClendon said Ramirez became the father of twins earlier in the day. He was scheduled to start instead on Tuesday in his first outing since being sent down last week.

Brad Miller moved into a tie for the most home runs by an American League shortstop when he hit his eighth of the season on Monday, tying him with Asdrubal Cabrera of the Indians and Alexei Ramirez of the White Sox.

• ROOT Sports and ESPN Deportes Seattle Radio Group announced Tuesday that its four stations in the Puget Sound area will broadcast the Mariners Spanish Audio feed for the remainder of the 2014 regular season on 1490 AM Seattle/Bremerton, 1480 AM Tacoma/Lakewood, 92.1 FM Tacoma/Puyallup and 1280 AM Olympia/Lacey.

Alex Rivera is the Spanish play-by-play voice of Mariners Spanish Audio and former Mariners second baseman Julio Cruz will join him in the booth for select games throughout the season.
