10:21 a.m. An interesting look in the Mariners’ lineup: Dee Gordon in center and Robinson Cano back at second base. It’s Gordon’s first time back in the outfield since May 16.

Also, some expected news after taking a line drive to the arm last night: James Paxton is headed to the 10-day DL. Right-hander Christian Bergman is coming up from Tacoma to take his place. But Scott Servais said before Wednesday’s game that Felix Hernandez would be their best option take Paxton’s spot in the rotation.

Here’s Ryan Divish with more on Paxton.
