Worth noting

• Reliever Shawn Kelley, who was hit in the elbow by a line drive in his last outing in Triple-A Tacoma, wasn't quite ready to return as planned over the weekend. Wedge said the hope was to get him in Tacoma's season finale Monday in Fresno.

• Kelley and Mike Carp, who is on an injury rehab with Tacoma, are among the players expected to be added as September callups on Tuesday once the Rainiers' season is over. Wedge wasn't giving any hints on Monday as to who or how many players would join Erasmo Ramirez and Carlos Peguero, who came up on Saturday.

"I'm not going to give a number yet, because we haven't talked to those guys yet," Wedge said prior to Monday's game. "I want to make sure they get through their game and take care of what they need to take care of, but we'll add a couple."

• The Mariners played their third consecutive day game on Monday, the first time the club has hosted three straight afternoon games since Sept. 4-6, 1999.

• Wednesday's game against the Red Sox is a 7:10 p.m. PT start, which is a change from the 12:40 p.m. time listed on pocket schedules printed before the change was made.
