--C Adam Moore had surgery on his right knee Tuesday morning, and the news for the Mariners wasn't good. Extensive damage to the medial meniscus was found, and Moore will be out four to six months, which means he's unlikely to return to play this season.
--3B Chone Figgins has dark bruising and soreness on his left wrist, which kept him out of Tuesday's game. He's going to play catch before Wednesday afternoon's series finale against the Blue Jays, and if he can play, he will. "I'm more concerned about the defense than the offense," said Figgins, who took a grounder off the wrist Monday.
--DH Jack Cust got a day off Tuesday. He's only batting .171 and hasn't hit a homer yet, so that move on the part of manager Eric Wedge wasn't unexpected.
--RHP Josh Lueke and RHP Michael Pineda posted their first big league wins on consecutive nights against Toronto. Pineda threw 7 1/3 innings and struck out seven while allowing two runs (one earned) Tuesday.
--2B Jack Wilson stole third base Tuesday. He now has four steals this season in eight games after having just two in 92 games during the parts of the last two seasons he's played with Seattle.
--OF Ryan Langerhans leads the Mariners in homers with three, and he has just 19 at-bats. He had three homers in 107 at-bats last season.
BY THE NUMBERS
5 -- RBI for Seattle's team co-leaders, OFs Ryan Langerhans and Michael Saunders, neither of whom was supposed to be a starter for the team out of spring training.
QUOTE TO NOTE
"He's throwing 97, 98 (mph), and he isn't even using the middle of the plate." -- OF Ryan Langerhans, marveling about RHP Michael Pineda on Tuesday.
