Mariners' McClendon: Fewer games for Austin Jackson in 2015
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Don't expect for Mariners outfielder Austin Jackson to play 154 games in 2015. 

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon is hoping to keep Jackson fresh for the entire season and doesn't want to burn him out. After only sitting out eight games a year ago with both the Tigers and the Mariners, McClendon is expecting for Jackson to play in fewer games during the upcoming season. 

"He played 154 games last year; that's too many for a center fielder with his frame," McClendon said, per MLB.com. "It wears you down. We're going to do our best to knock that number down a bit."

In his five-year career, Jackson has hit .274. Jackson played 100 games for the Tigers in 2014 before being dealt to the Mariners, in the middle of a game against the White Sox, just before the MLB trade deadline.

Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker to start Cactus League opener
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker will be given the nod for Seattle when the team makes the Cactus League debut Wednesday against the Padres, reports MLB.com.

Walker is battling with Roenis Elias for the final spot in the Mariners' rotation when the season begins. Walker admits to being a little banged up early last season.

"I wasn't available to do anything -- I wasn't even playing catch [at this time last year]," Walker said before the Mariners' workout Sunday morning. "So to be able to start a game in spring and actually have a Spring Training feels good."

Walker posted a 2-3 record with a 2.61 ERA in 38 innings in 2014 and hopes he can make an impression with his start Wednesday.

"It's a game, and it's a competition," Walker said. "I'm just going to go out there and do the best that I can. So if that means I have to go out there and go full speed, then I will."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Mariners pitcher James Paxton is scheduled to start playing catch Monday as he recovers from a forearm injury, pitching coach Rick Waits said Saturday.

Paxton, who went 6-4 with a 3.04 ERA in 74 innings pitched in 2014, is building toward throwing a bullpen session and Waits wants to see him get to five innings pitched in the Cactus League.

Mariners catcher prospect John Hicks on the radar for MLB callup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mariners catcher John Hicks might not be on the radar as an elite prospect, but after posting a .288/.337/.419/.756 slash line through four minor-league seasons, he at least has the attention of the Mariners' decision makers.

“He’s a catcher who has the ability to do a lot of things,” manager Lloyd McClendon said, per The News Tribune. “His bat plays. He’s got a bright future. He’ll probably see significant playing time this spring.”

Hicks is expected to open the season at Triple-A Tacoma, but he could make his MLB debut in 2015.

“Listen, you’re on the 40-man roster,” McClendon said. “You’re on that roster for a reason. That’s to (the club to) protect you in case we have injuries. Then you move up.

“So, yeah, there’s a chance he could see time in the big leagues this year if there’s an injury.”
