Stauffer (1-0, 3.46)        Sele (2-4, 5.62)

This will be the third Major League appearance for Stauffer, the fourth overall pick in the 2003 draft. He's ahead of schedule, having missed some of 2003 with a shoulder injury and playing through three levels a year ago, but if his first two starts are any indication, he's ready. The Mariners will need to take advantage of any "rookie moments" he has on the mound, along with his occasional homer-proneness and come-and-go command. That it's a day game should only help our power hitters, as the ball seems to carry better in the sun.
