News
Martin arrived at camp Wednesday after being delayed by personal issues, Shannon Drayer of MyNorthwest.com reports.

Martin testified in a Cuban human-trafficking trial Tuesday in Miami. Projected to be the Mariners' starting center fielder again in 2017, he should be back to normal spring training activities shortly. Martin hit .247 and stole a team-leading 24 bases last season, his first in Seattle.

News
Cano, who along with teammate Nelson Cruz, will leave the Mariners in March to join Team Dominican Republic in the WBC, will see plenty of action in early spring training games, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports. "They will play a little more than normal before they head off to the WBC. They want to get some timing down and make sure they feel good at the plate. You will see those guys play more than just every other day."

The seven-time All-Star is already penciled in to the third spot in the order for Saturday's Cactus League opener against the Padres at Peoria Stadium, and is likely to see plenty of at-bats in coming games as well. Cano is looking forward to building on a 2016 campaign in which he blasted a career-high 39 homers, and both he and the Mariners appear intent on making sure he enjoys as close to a normal spring training as possible despite his WBC participation.

News
Vogelbach, who is likely to platoon with veteran Danny Valencia at first base, has impressed manager Scott Servais with the improved agility he's flashing as a result of offseason workouts, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "He spent a lot of time on it this offseason. I think he looks great. He's certainly moving a lot better defensively around the bag. He's a lot more flexible. His hands are working better. I like what I see so far."

A 2011 draft pick of the Cubs, Vogelbach arrived in Seattle last July 20 and eventually logged his first 12 major league at-bats late in the season. A burly 6-foot, 250-pounder, Vogelbach worked diligently with his brother, a trainer, this offseason to improve his lateral mobility and first-step quickness. He also added yoga into his stretching routine in attempt to maximize the flexibility of his hips and hamstrings, all with the goal of insuring a roster spot by proving his defensive viability at first base. The 24-year-old's bat is a much more established commodity, as most recently evidenced by his .292/.417/.505 line with 25 doubles, two triples, 23 homers and 96 RBI over a combined 459 at-bats at Triple-A Iowa and Tacoma last season. If he can translate the improvement he's showing in workouts to spring training games, Vogelbach should secure himself a spot on the 25-man roster and serve as yet another source of power in a potent Mariners lineup.

News
Heston, who arrived in Seattle in a Dec. 7 trade, will draw the start in Sunday's Cactus League tilt versus the Padres, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The 28-year-old righty, who is a considerable long shot to carve out a spot in the Mariners' starting rotation, will have an early chance to showcase his wares in starting what will be Seattle's second exhibition game. Heston was limited to just five innings at the big league level with the Giants in 2016 due to a demotion and subsequent oblique injury. His one season of note in San Francisco came in 2015, when he posted a 12-11 record, 3.95 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 141:64 K:BB over 177.2 innings.

"They will play a little more than normal before they head off to the WBC. They want to get some timing down and make sure they feel good at the plate. You will see those guys play more than just every other day."

Cruz is slated to bat cleanup in Saturday's Cactus League opener against the Padres, and the plan is apparently for him to be in the majority of games before he departs Mariners camp in March. The veteran slugger will look to extend his 40-homer streak to four seasons in 2017 while once again serving as an integral component of the Seattle lineup.

News
Gallardo, the Mariners' fifth starter, will open Monday's Cactus League matchup versus the Royals, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The 30-year-old righty will begin his quest to put last season, the worst of his 10-year major league career, behind him. Gallardo battled shoulder problems and biceps tendinitis on his way to a career-worst 5.42 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in what was his sole Orioles campaign. Now reportedly at full health after an offseason of targeted strengthening exercises for his scapula, the veteran could serve as an innings-eating, better-than-average option at the back end of the 2017 rotation.

News
Hernandez has been named the starter for the Mariners' Cactus League road opener against the White Sox, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

King Felix, who has looked impressive thus far in throwing sessions, will thus get his first crack at opposing hitters against a White Sox squad against which he went 1-0 with a 3.86 ERA last season. Hernandez is also on Team Venezuela's WBC roster and began his offseason throwing program earlier than usual this offseason as a result. He's scheduled for at least one more Cactus League start in addition to Tuesday's before WBC play begins on Mar. 10.

Hip - Expected to be out until at least Apr 15 (Updated - 12/6/16)
News
Cishek (hip) indicated that everything went without a hitch in his second day of throwing Thursday, Owen Perkins of the Mariners' official site reports. "I'm playing catch every other day," said Cishek. "I expect to throw again in another two days and keep building up my hip strength."

Cishek initially hoped to be ready for Opening Day, but now admits he will probably need to wait a bit longer before returning to regular-season action. The 30-year-old reliever has now changed his goals to simply pitching during spring training. "I'd like to be pitching in spring training games," Cishek said. "It'll take a little longer before I'm ready to pitch in regular-season games, but I'd like to get that far before the end of the Cactus League games." With Edwin Diaz now firmly entrenched as the team's closer heading into the season, Cishek will have to settle into either a seventh or eighth inning role for the Mariners. However, his experience as a closer keeps him in the mix for saves should Edwin Diaz suffer an injury or struggle.

News
Haniger said he believes he can steal 20 bases in 2017, and manager Scott Servais said he has given him the green light on the basepaths, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

Seattle should run more this season on the whole, having also acquired Jean Segura from the Diamondbacks and Jarrod Dyson from the Royals. Haniger, meanwhile, has garnered some fantasy love since the trade, and he's the favorite to start in right field on Opening Day. This news will help his sleeper hype grow even more, though it's not unfounded. He's a 20-homer, 20-steal candidate, which could make him a huge profit pick in the late rounds.

Miranda, who is being treated as a starter this spring, will operate as such in Saturday's Cactus League opener against the Mariners, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The 27-year-old southpaw isn't scheduled to be a part of the season-opening rotation come April, but is being groomed to be the first man up in the event of an injury or demotion. In the interim, Miranda will get an early opportunity to make a good impression and begin building on a 10-start major league debut in 2016 that saw him generate a solid 5-2 record, 3.88 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 44:18 K:BB over 58 innings.

News
Valencia, who's primarily expected to platoon at first base with rookie Dan Vogelbach this season, got in work at third base Tuesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The veteran has played third base more than any other position in his career, but that role is fully in Kyle Seager's possession in Seattle. While manager Scott Servais wants to give Valencia some work at his previous position as a contigency plan-- and perhaps in anticipation of some spot starts when Seager rests during the coming season -- the main priority remains getting him acclimated at first. "He'll probably be mostly at first throughout the spring," Servais said. "He will play a day or two at third and get some time in the outfield, but we want to get him comfortable there at first."
