Johnson to catch both weekend games

ARLINGTON -- Rookie catcher Adam Moore was back in the starting lineup for a second consecutive game Friday night as the Mariners try to take care of starter Rob Johnson.

Johnson, who had three offseason surgeries, will catch Felix Hernandez in Saturday's 12:10 p.m. PT start, and then could come back to catch Ian Snell for another day game on Sunday.

"We don't want to push Rob too much," manager Don Wakamatsu said.

Moore started his third game to Johnson's two, even though the latter is considered the starter.
