The Mariners are checking with trainer Rick Griffin these days before filling out a lineup card - for good reason.
Two Mariners, DH Russell Branyan and C Rob Johnson, left the game early last night and are unavailable to start for the next few days with lingering if minor injuries.
A third, OF Michael Saunders, hasn't played since spraining his right middle finger in Anaheim on Friday. He won't play tonight, either.
Branyan is having back spasms, Johnson felt his left hip tighten up fielding a bunt last night. Both are day-to-day.
So who can play? Here's the lineup that will face lefty John Danks and the White Sox:
- Ichiro Suzuki, RF
- Chone Figgins, 2B
- Franklin Gutierrez, CF
- Jose Lopez, 3B
- Milton Bradley, LF
- Casey Kotchman, DH
- Justin Smoak, 1B
- Josh Bard, C
- Jack Wilson, SS
- Doug Fister, P
