Up next for Tampa Bay Rays: vs. Seattle Mariners

. Up next

vs. Mariners


What's new: The Mariners are on a road trip in which they already have taken four of six from the Tigers and Blue Jays. They made one big move in the offseason, acquiring touted prospect C Jesus Montero from the Yankees for RHP Michael Pineda. Seattle still has RF Ichiro Suzuki, though he's no longer the leadoff hitter, and 2010 Cy Young Award-winning RHP Felix Hernandez, who pitches tonight. They're missing LHP George Sherrill and CF Franklin Gutierrez, who are on the disabled list.

Key stat: The Mariners' eight road wins are tied for the American League lead.

Connections: C John Jaso is a former Ray, and OF Chone Figgins is a former Brandon High standout.

Series history: The Mariners lead the all-time series 69-56, including 32-25 at Tropicana Field. The Rays took last year's series 6-4, including all three at the Trop.
