The Mariners continue their journey to Opening Day with a tune up against the Texas Rangers. Hisashi Iwakuma will see his first spring game. Dae-Ho Lee will get the start at DH after singling in his first Mariners at bat yesterday. Chris Taylor is playing third. Fun will be had.

In fun news, Robinson Cano told MLB.com's Greg Johns he's feeling much better coming into the year. Cano hit his first spring training home run yesterday. He told Johns:

"Honestly, I feel way, way better... Last year, I wasn't able to use my hips the way I'm using them now. I watched some video when I was home. I'm moving really good compared to the way I was last year. This is a lot better."
