• Jamie Moyer, the winningest pitcher in club history, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch on Opening Night at Safeco Field, Monday, April 8, when the Mariners take on the Astros. Moyer won 145 games for Seattle in 11 seasons from 1996-2006 and holds team records for games started (323), innings pitched (2,093) and fewest walks per nine innings pitched (2.253). He is third in win percentage (.625) and tied for sixth in shutouts with six.
• Jon Garland will make his third start of the spring on Saturday when the Mariners face the Dodgers in Glendale, Ariz. The veteran right-hander, trying to make the club as a non-roster invitee, has yet to allow a run in three innings of work. He's slated to throw three innings, followed by another three by left-hander Joe Saunders.
• Right-hander Andrew Carraway is scheduled for his first Cactus League start in a two-inning stint Sunday when the Mariners host the White Sox at Peoria Stadium. Taijuan Walker is scheduled for an inning of relief in that game, along with Tom Wilhelmsen, Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge and Carter Capps.
• This weekend's games are all live on 710 ESPN Seattle starting at 12:05 p.m. PT until Sunday, when Daylight Saving Time kicks in and Arizona will finally be on the same time as Seattle. That means all Cactus League day games after Saturday will be at 1:05 p.m. PT.
• After Friday's game with the A's was canceled in the fourth inning, the Mariners set up a "B" game for Saturday morning against the Padres in Peoria Stadium in order to get the needed work for their pitchers. That game will likely be seven innings, with the Mariners then heading to Glendale to face the Dodgers in their Cactus League game.
