• After hitting 1-for-24 with runners in scoring position in the Rangers series, the Mariners are now batting .118 with RISP in their 13 losses and .351 in their seven wins heading into Monday's opener in Houston.
• The Blue Jays traded former Mariners outfielder Casper Wells to Oakland on Monday for cash, with Wells expected to join the A's in Boston on Tuesday. Wells was designated for assignment by Toronto last week after being claimed off waivers from Seattle.
• A scoring decision on Brendan Ryan's error in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Tigers has been reversed, giving Felix Hernandez an earned run in what had originally been eight innings with just the one unearned run. The decision raised Hernandez's ERA from 2.20 to 2.51 going into Monday's start.
• Kyle Seager's 10th double of the season on Sunday moved him into a tie for the third-most in franchise history for the month of April. The only other Mariner to hit 10 doubles in the first 20 games of the season was Edgar Martinez in '96, when he finished with a club-record 12.
