Cuts coming today, but you won't read about many of them.
Stephen Kahn, a 25-year-old right-hander on the 40-man roster, was optioned to the minors Monday.
With a split-squad double-header on their schedule, the Mariners won't send anyone else to minor-league camp until after those two games - which means talking to players late this afternoon or early this evening.

With tomorrow's off-day scheduled, that's going to make the moves a little tougher on the cuttees.
Imagine this: You're in major league camp. You've got a day off tomorrow, maybe a little golf scheduled. Maybe time with the family.
And suddenly, at 6 p.m., you're told you've been sent to the minor league camp - and you're to report tomorrow morning at 7:30 a.m.
Such is life in spring training.
Don't expect any stunning surprises. With more than 50 players in camp - not counting those still away at the World Baseball Classic - the Mariners have players who need work and won't get it unless they're sent down.
That doesn't make being sent down any more palatable.
