Worth noting

• Michael Saunders had been the Mariners' regular center fielder, but Franklin Gutierrez has taken over that role since he was reinstated from the disabled list on Aug. 27. Wedge said Saunders is comfortable in any outfield position, and when he returns from a groin injury, he could spend time in both left and right.

• Gutierrez is currently working on an American League record among outfielders with 829 consecutive chances without an error. The Major League record is 938 straight by outfielder Darren Lewis (1990-93, A's and Giants).
