• Felix Hernandez remains in line to pitch Wednesday against the Astros at Safeco after having his start pushed back from Sunday due to a cramp in his back sustained in his last outing in Kansas City. Manager Eric Wedge said he'll be tested in the next day or two, but doesn't expect any problems.
"We'll have him [throw] off the mound for sure and make sure he works off that angle and that everything is fine," Wedge said Friday. "But he felt really good playing catch yesterday, so that was a big step for him. We'll see how he feels today and go from there."
