An opening day lineup that will start today

No announcements expected today on the final 30 players the Seattle Mariners will take to Japan - and no explanation why it won't be released - but the lineup vs. the Chicago White Sox today is almost certainly the same one the team will open the year with.

The tough news if you're a Kyle Seager fan: He's not in it.

With 39 players still in camp, the Mariners will fly to Tokyo at noon tomorrow - and Seattle is disinclined to announce it's roster until close to flight time. Why? No real reason.

Here's today's lineup:
