Mariners' Taylor Motter: Slowed by sore back
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Motter is dealing with a sore back and won't play for a couple of days, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Despite the hindrance, Motter is still hitting and working on the field, so it doesn't seem to be a major concern. The 27-year-old is competing for a utility role on the Seattle roster after being acquired in a trade from the Rays during the offseason. Motter, who hit just .188 in 34 games last year, likely needs to impress this spring to earn the spot over veteran incumbent Shawn O'Malley.

Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma: Will be eased into game action
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Iwakuma is on a slower-paced spring training plan and won't see game action until March, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

The strategy appears to be precautionary after Iwakuma faltered down the stretch last season in a 199-inning campaign. The 35-year-old has expressed that he wants to shoulder the same workload in 2017 while producing at a higher level, an evident goal from his current regimen. Iwakuma is scheduled for side work this Monday as he continues to progress towards Opening Day.

Mariners' Jarrod Dyson: In line for expanded opportunity in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Dyson, who arrived in Seattle via a Jan. 6 trade, is in line for expanded opportunities in both playing time and on the basepaths during spring training, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. "I talked to him yesterday and said, 'Hey, be ready,'" Mariners manager Scott Servais said. "It's not going to be just straight platoon. I'd like to see what he can do against left-handed pitchers in Spring Training. It is the spring and keep that in context, but I'm curious to see what it looks like."

The veteran outfielder, who'll lead off in Saturday's Cactus League opener against the Padres, will have the green light on the bases in spring training. Dyson swiped 30 bags in a part-time role for the Royals in 2016, and 176 overall in parts of seven major league seasons. Servais is ready to give his offseason acquisition a chance to take some hacks versus southpaws as well, a handedness which the 32-year-old hit .379 against in a modest sample of 29 at-bats last season. If Dyson can hold his own against lefties, it would give the Mariners an opening to boost his playing time beyond that of a straight platoon, and incorporate his speed into the lineup on a more frequent basis.

Mariners' Nelson Cruz: To get plenty of reps before WBC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cruz, who, along with teammate Robinson Cano, 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."

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.

Mariners' Robinson Cano: To get plenty of reps before WBC
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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," manager Scott Servais said. "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.
