Worth noting

• Former Mariners reliever David Pauley, now pitching for Triple-A Tacoma, has been suspended for 50 games without pay following a second violation for a drug of abuse, according to the Commissioner's Office.

Pauley, who re-signed with the Mariners at midseason after being traded to the Tigers last year, had been pitching well for the Rainiers with a 3.14 ERA in 11 appearances. The suspension was not for steroids or performance enhancers, but for an unspecified recreational drug.

• Top Mariners prospect Danny Hultzen lasted just two-thirds of an inning Friday for Triple-A Tacoma, giving up four runs on two hits and four walks against Las Vegas. The 2011 first-round Draft pick is 1-3 with a 5.14 ERA in nine starts since being promoted from Double-A Jackson.

• Franklin Gutierrez went 1-for-4 for Tacoma on Friday and is hitting .333 with eight RBIs in six games for the Rainiers as he returns from a concussion.
