Veteran second baseman Rickie Weeks, whom the Seattle Mariners signed two weeks ago, will likely split time in left field with Dustin Ackley this season, manager Lloyd McClendon said Wednesday. “I would suspect he’d probably play left field mostly,” McClendon said at the first full day of spring training in Peoria, Arizona.

Batman Cruz unfazed by possible Safeco effect on his power

PEORIA, Ariz. — Nelson Cruz donned a Batman T-shirt Wednesday after completing his first official workout as a Mariner. This isn’t Fellini. The message is easily grasped. The Mariners are doling out $57 million to Cruz over the next four years because he can hit: He led the majors last season with 40 homers while playing at Baltimore and finished with a .525 slugging percentage. Point to note: Robinson Cano and Kyle Seager led the Mariners last season with a .454 slugging percentage. Current plans call for them to bracket Cruz in this year’s lineup. And while, yes, Oriole Park … ...

Mariners notebook: McClendon says Weeks will work primarily in left field

PEORIA, Ariz. — Are the Mariners already heading toward a platoon set-up in left field with Dustin Ackley and converted second baseman Rickie Weeks? Manager Lloyd McClendon seemed to suggest that’s the plan Wednesday before the Mariners took part in their first full-squad workout at the Peoria Sports Complex. First, McClendon revealed his intention to have Weeks spend most of his outfield time this spring in left field. (Weeks is also expected to draw some time in the infield at first, second and third.) McClendon then dismissed the suggestion that signing Weeks represented the club...

Cano says Mariners `look like world champions’ on paper

PEORIA, Ariz. — Robinson Cano reported in Tuesday, as scheduled, and immediately embraced the highest bar of expectations for the Mariners in the upcoming season. “On paper, we look like world champions,” he proclaimed before adding a qualifier. “Hopefully, we’ll stay healthy. It’s not how we look on paper. We’ve got to go out there and prove it every single day.” Cano, 32, is comfortable with the loftiest of goals from the nine years spent in New York pinstripes before he signed on last season with the October-starved Mariners. And it still rankles the Mariners, in his first...
