Seattle Mariners Notes, Quotes 2009-04-25
--1B Mike Sweeney's bad back is better and he's been cleared to play. But with the return to health of 1B Russell Branyan, who also had back pain, Sweeney was on the bench Friday at Anaheim.

--INF Ronny Cedeno, who came up with a right hamstring while running the bases Wednesday, was unavailable to play Friday. Cedeno might be ready to play again by Sunday.

--DH Ken Griffey Jr. and RF Ichiro Suzuki both were honored by the Mariners in pregame ceremonies Wednesday. Griffey was honored for having hit his 400th homer as a Mariner earlier in the homestand, while Ichiro was lauded for having broken the all-time Japanese hits record with his 3,086th. Both were given framed pictures of the moment.

BY THE NUMBERS: 3 -- Wild pitches thrown by the Mariners Sunday. That's one shy of the club record. RHP Carlos Silva, RHP Mark Lowe and RHP Shawn Kelley each threw one.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "He just keeps getting better and better." -- Manager Don Wakamatsu on LHP Erik Bedard.
