Mariners roll out their right-handed lineup

Against the Chicago White Sox and left-handed pitcher Chris Sale, the Seattle Mariners have loaded their lineup with right-handed hitters including reserves Casper Wells and Alex Liddi.

Manager Eric Wedge continues to use his 25-man roster in April, trying to keep everyone involved and looking, perhaps, for that hot hitter to get Seattle on a roll.

That means Jesus Montero will catch stater Hector Noesi tonight - the two have history from the New York Yankees organization - and Miguel Olivo will be the DH.

Here's the lineup:
