Worth noting

• Reliever Charlie Furbush will make his fourth rehab appearance for Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday in Memphis and then be re-evaluated as he continues working back from a left biceps strain.

• With Tacoma on the road, center fielder Franklin Gutierrez is working out this weekend with the Class A Everett AquaSox. Mariners manager Eric Wedge said the best-case scenario is for Gutierrez to begin a Minor League rehab stint with Everett in a few days if he continues feeling well.

Gutierrez has been sidelined with headaches and an ear problem since getting hit with a pickoff throw on June 29. Wedge said there's no timetable on a potential return to the Mariners.

• Due to a conflict with the Seahawks' first exhibition game, Saturday's Mariners-Angels contest will be on KTTH 770-AM instead of 710 ESPN Seattle.
