Worth noting

• Top right-handed prospect Taijuan Walker played catch for the second day in a row Friday after being shut down for a week to rest his shoulder, and all went well. He'll throw long toss again this weekend while continuing to build back his arm strength.

"He felt good about everything, and that's what is important," McClendon said.

Corey Hart saw his first action of the spring in right field after being limited to designated-hitter duties in his first four games, but didn't get any balls hit his way in his five innings.

Robinson Cano didn't play for the second straight day on Friday as he's recovering from root canal surgery performed Wednesday afternoon. The second baseman is on a day-to-day basis regarding his return. Cano is hitting .500 (6-for-12) with three runs and three RBIs in his first five games with Seattle.

Felix Hernandez threw a bullpen session on Friday and said everything felt great. He'll make his second Cactus League start on Sunday against the Rangers in a 1:05 p.m. PT game in Peoria.

• The Mariners play their second split-squad games of the year Saturday, and both will be televised on MLB.TV and MLB Network. The 6:05 p.m. PT night game against the Dodgers will be shown live, while a 12:05 p.m. PT afternoon game against the Giants in Scottsdale will be shown on a delayed basis on MLB Network at 1 a.m. Sunday morning. Both games will be live on MLB.TV.
