Pictures from Peoria: On Wednesday, the rain came

CagesIt looked a lot like Seattle weather today in Arizona — rainy and cold this morning — which isn’t good for Spring Training. But the Mariners made do by heading into the covered batting cages to get their work in. Here’s a group of players waiting their turn in the cage.

Catcher Kelly Shoppach talks with Hector Noesi after their bullpen session. Noesi will start Friday’s charity game against the Padres.


Felix Hernandez made his first throwing session of the spring, which led to a group of reporters trailing him out to the field where he warmed up.


Here’s Felix finally in the bullpen, under the watchful eye of pitching coach Carl Willis. Hernandez threw 33 pitches in his 10-minute period and said he felt great.
