The Seattle Mariners now have 47 players in camp after cutting four pitchers this afternoon, and they're sending a mixed lineup into tonight's game - which will feature Felix Hernandez vs. the Kansas City Royals.
Seattle sent Chris Smith, Manny Delcarmen, Charlie Haeger and Dan Cortes to minor league camp, with Cortes assigned to the Tacoma Rainiers roster.
Tonight, with Ichiro, Chone Figgins and Milton Bradley getting a night off, Eric Wedge has scrambled the top of his batting order - second baseman Dustin Ackley, left fielder Ryan Langerhans and shortstop Brendan Ryan.
Originally, Jack Wilson was starting at second base, but he was scratched because of a 'personal matter.'
Never miss a local story.
It's getting harder to give everyone adequate innings and at-bats, and tonight Felix will likely eat up four or five innings.
