Trainer’s roomMariners: Felix Hernandez, whose second start of the season on Sunday at Oakland ended after five innings because of tightness in his right quadriceps, will throw a side session on Wednesday before it is determined if he can make his scheduled outing against Texas Saturday at Safeco Field. The 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner and five-time All-Star pitched at least 200-innings in each of the previous seven seasons. “He played catch yesterday and felt fine,” McClendon said. “I don’t foresee any setbacks tomorrow, but I just want to cover myself.” Dodgers: RF Yasiel Puig did not play because of tightness in his left hamstring, following his second consecutive game with a home run. He felt discomfort rounding first base on his single in the seventh inning.
Up nextMariners: RHP Taijuan Walker (0-1) was 4-0 in spring training, allowing just two earned runs over 27 innings before surrendering nine runs and nine hits in 3 1-3 innings last Friday at Oakland in his first start of the season. Dodgers: LHP Brett Anderson (0-0) threw 94 pitches over six innings in a no-desision at Arizona last Friday, which was the sixth anniversary of his major league debut with Oakland. This will be his first career start at Dodger Stadium. His seven career wins against Seattle are the most he’s had against any opponent.
