Live from Oakland - Mr. Peguero starts in RF

Outfielder Carlos Peguero is with the team, and as long as he's here, Eric Wedge has him in the lineup tonight - and why not? - the Seattle Mariners remain one moving audition in 2012.

Peguero's over-the-top swing has played well in the Pacific Coast League and he's been hot. The Mariners don't have anyone capable of homering five times in a week, so Peguero slides into right field tonight while Ichiro takes a day at designated hitter.

Against left-hander Tommy Milone, here's the Mariners lineup:
