A slightly different Mariners lineup

As expected, neither Franklin Gutierrez nor Michael Saunders is in the Seattle Mariners lineup tonight - both have slight groin strains -  so Casper Wells will be playing center field  vs. the Boston Red Sox.

They're not the only regulars sitting: first baseman Justin Smoak (.193) is on the bench and Mike Carp (.204) will start tonight. John Jaso will catch and Jesus Montero is the DH.

Here's the Seattle lineup against right-hander Aaron Cook:
