Let’s play two!

Okay, so each team is only playing one but there is double the Mariners baseball in Arizona today as the split squads take on the Cincinnati Reds and the Colorado Rockies.

The first team stays in Peoria to play the Rockies, while the second team heads to Goodyear to take on the Reds. Both games are set for 12:05 pm PST. Here are the starting lineups:

Also of note

Kyle Seager expects to be back in the lineup on Tuesday when Felix Hernandez makes his first start of the spring. Seager jammed his finger sliding into third base in the first inning of the first game last Thursday.

"“I’m shooting for tomorrow. Originally, it was a possibility for today. Then it was, `Well, you know, we might as well take it slow with it being so early.’ But as far as I know, I’m in there tomorrow.” — Kyle Seager via Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune"

Bob added later via Twitter:

So tomorrow looks to be an eventful day when the Mariners take on the Dodgers.

The home game against Colorado can be heard on 710ESPN on delay tonight at 7 pm or live on
