Some news and notes from camp

Short day scheduled in camp today, giving Seattle Mariners pitchers an easy day before 15 of them work tomorrow in the first intra-squad game of spring.

The teams will pit starters Jason Vargas and Dan Hultzen against one another, and if you're on the Vargas team, the first three innings you'll face Hultzen, Taijuan Walker and James Paxton.

At this very moment, the team is sigtning baseballs and a variety of things for the team charities. Once they take the field, there are a few minor injuries they're dealing with.

Rookie Trayvon Robinson has a tight left hamstring and will not run today. Designated hitter candidate Luis Jimenez has an ailing elbow and is getting treatment, but will still take batting practice.

Center fielder Franklin Gutierrez was given Wednesday off during outfield drills after his legs felt tight during running drills. He's fine today and will take part in the team workout.
