The M’s look to rebound a night after a tough loss in their relentless pursuit of the coveted Cactus League tile

MLB: Spring Training-Seattle Mariners at San Diego Padres Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Skinny Seager is sidelined today after apparently injuring his hand on a diving attempt in last night’s action, so we’re treated to a RyON sighting at third base today. The red hot Jay Bruce takes a seat as we get a look at both Braden Bishop and Jake Fraley—who are...apparently in a competition for an opening day roster spot?— in the starting lineup. FUN FACT: as our John Trupin unearthed yesterday, if either of them back the jump to the without a stop in Triple-A, they’ll be the first Mariners position player to do so since Chris Snelling in 2002. Erik Swanson makes his third appearance of the spring, and it comes in the form of a start smack-in-the-middle of the a rotation of the five other guys expected to make up the Mariners’ regular season rotation when the season opens in a couple of weeks.

Daniel Vogelbach is notably absent from the starting lineup after failing to appear in yesterday’s contest at all despite Jerry assuring us he’ll be with the M’s when they break camp.
