KEY GAME INFORMATION
LA ANGELS: HITTING: SS ERICK AYBAR will likely get another crack at the leadoff spot by default. DH/OF BOBBY ABREU can still draw walks and run a little. 2B HOWIE KENDRICK traded batting average for more power last year. He's still one of baseball's better middle infield bats. 1B ALBERT PUJOLS should benefit from DH-ing a couple of times a year. OF TORII HUNTER is fading fast and may not provide middle-of-the-order power. OF VERNON WELLS has a better chance than Hunter to bounce back, and the Angels have to be patient considering his monster contract. MARK TRUMBO will get a look at 3B. If he can't get it done, ALBERTO CALLASPO would start and Trumbo would back-up first and DH. Speedy OF PETER BOURJOS will start in left, and top prospect MIKE TROUT will soon replace free agents-to-be Abreu or Hunter. KENDRYS MORALES could DH regularly if his ankle is healthy. CHRIS IANNETTA is no Mike Napoli, but he's a monster upgrade over Jeff Mathis.
STARTING PITCHING: JERED WEAVER had a lot of things go right in 2011, and it's not hard to picture him as a Cy Young candidate again. But he faded late in the year, and may not belong in the upper echelon or pitchers. A cutter has led to DAN HAREN's rebirth. He's right there with Weaver, just a step behind the elite arms. C.J. WILSON may not get the same run support, but he should benefit from getting out of hitter-friendly Arlington; he had a 2.31 road ERA last year. ERVIN SANTANA never developed into a top-of-the-line starter, but he's become more consistent and settled in as a solid starter. Once a washed-out former prospect, JEROME WILLIAMS came back to the States from Taiwan and delivered three quality starts last September. He's not likely to have sustained success, but he does have the inside track for a rotation spot. Middling prospect GARRETT RICHARDS seems like the most likely candidate to step into the rotation in case of injury.
RELIEF PITCHING: JORDAN WALDEN will have the closer's role again entering the spring, but while he was overpowering he was also very shaky at times. He gave up seven runs over 2.2 innings in his last three appearances. RICH THOMPSON decided to lean on his cutter last year and the results were excellent. If Walden slips up, Thompson has to be in the closer conversation. LaTROY HAWKINS was solid with Milwaukee (2.42 ERA) and joins his ninth different team since 2003. He is expected to set up Walden as well. Lefty SCOTT DOWNS was far from dominant last year, despite his 1.34 ERA. But Scioscia does trust him in high-leverage situations, making him a possible fallback if Walden struggles. The Angels don't seem to have big plans for HISANORI TAKAHASHI, the most well-compensated long reliever in baseball.
SEATTLE: HITTING: C/DH JESUS MONTERO was brought over from the Yankees to hit in the heart of the order. At age 22, his offensive potential is scary. OF ICHIRO SUZUKI is entering the twilight of his career, but he might still have another .300 season left. 2B DUSTIN ACKLEY is the kind of line-drive hitter who fits well in Safeco, but he needs to catch up to MLB pitching. 1B JUSTIN SMOAK has disappointed, but he's making strides and has 30-HR upside. OF CASPER WELLS could play everyday. He won't hit for average, but has the power Seattle needs. MIKE CARP figures to at least grab early at-bats against righties. He'll strike out, but has lots of power. OF FRANKLIN GUTIERREZ is out for at least a month with a pectoral injury, but will reclaim his starting gig based on his defense. Seattle would love to see OF MICHAEL SAUNDERS step up to replace Gutierrez, but he's shown no signs of being able to handle MLB pitching. C MIGUEL OLIVO still has solid power, but he's an all-or-nothing hitter. 3B CHONE FIGGINS isn't quite done, but he's close. He'll have to battle line-drive hitting KYLE SEAGER for a job. SS BRENDAN RYAN will stick around for defense, but his bat is barely good enough for a regular gig.
STARTING PITCHING: FELIX HERNANDEZ had a touch of bad luck last year, but he's one of the few pitchers in baseball who's a lock for 200 strikeouts. JASON VARGAS just keeps throwing strikes and letting his defense make plays. He'll get by fine again in spacious Safeco. BLAKE BEAVAN doesn't have a strikeout pitch, but he'll make few mistakes and get some outs thanks to a strong defense. HECTOR NOESI, who also came over from New York with Montero, isn't a big strikeout pitcher, but has good control and is savvy enough to get his shot in Seattle's rotation this year. 37-year-old journeyman KEVIN MILLWOOD will fill out the fifth spot in the rotation after a solid spring. Top prospect DANNY HULTZEN could break into the bigs in 2012. The lefty has the polish of a big leaguer right now, though his ceiling is more good-not-great.
RELIEF PITCHING: Like many rebuilding teams, the Mariners will continue to shop their closer. BRANDON LEAGUE will pick up saves in Seattle, but he's more of a groundball pitcher than a strikeout artist. He'd likely be ticketed for a set-up role elsewhere. If League is traded, the closer role is wide open. SHAWN KELLEY came back from Tommy John surgery late last year and looked as good as ever. If he picks up where he left off last year, he'd be an obvious choice for ninth inning duties. CHANCE RUFFIN, part of the Doug Fister trade, has a strong minor-league track record. He could carve out a big role in this bullpen if he can improve his command.

*Angels-Mariners Preview* =========================

By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO STATS Writer

Los Angeles (8-12) at Seattle (8-15), 10:10 p.m. EDT

Pitching is a major problem for the Los Angeles Angels, but Garrett Richards is providing some hope for improvement.

The Seattle Mariners are regrouping around rookie right-hander Brandon Maurer following a team meeting.

Richards attempts to build on the best performance by an Angels starter this season, as he takes the mound in the opener of a four-game series in Seattle on Thursday night.

Los Angeles (8-12) has a 4.88 ERA - 5.35 from the rotation - ranking ahead of only Houston's 5.19 in the majors.

Seattle (8-15) isn't much better with a 4.65 ERA to rank 28th.

Los Angeles, though, is expected to be a pennant contender with one of the highest payrolls in baseball at $148.5 million.

Richards (1-0, 2.55 ERA), who makes $495,000, turned in the best effort for the Angels so far, and he's getting his third start in place of Jered Weaver, who is on the disabled list with a broken left elbow.

Richards had a career high-tying eight strikeouts and yielded two hits in seven innings of a 10-0 home win over Detroit on Saturday. The right-hander also benefited from the offense staking him to a nine-run lead in the opening inning.

"I don't pay attention to the score. I try to pitch the same, whether it's 9-0 or 0-0," Richards said.

He's 1-0 with a 3.27 ERA in six games against Seattle. The victory came in his only start against the AL West rival, yielding one run in seven innings last June.

The Angels, 7-3 at Seattle last year, could use another strong start from Richards since the rotation has a 6.04 ERA since his latest outing.

That includes Wednesday's 11-3 defeat to Texas, as Michael Roth was tagged for five runs in 3 1-3 innings of his first career start. The rookie was filling in for Tommy Hanson, who is on the bereavement list following a death in his family.

Manager Eric Wedge may be hoping the Mariners respond from a team meeting held after losing 10-3 at Houston on Wednesday, capping a 1-5 road trip.

Seattle's pitchers compiled a 6.61 ERA - 7.59 from the starters - over that stretch.

"It's been a bad road trip, and we are not off to the start we'd like, for sure," Wedge said. "But we have the players in there to be a good team, and that is what bothers me more than anything. We just have to peck away and get this thing turned around."

Maurer (1-3, 7.45) will try to start that process as he faces Los Angeles for the first time. The rookie has yielded two runs in each of his past two outings - both against the Rangers - after surrendering 12 over the first two.

He turned in his best performance of the season Saturday, yielding only a pair of solo homers in 6 2-3 innings in a 5-0 loss at Texas.

"I've been really happy with his last two starts," Wedge told the team's official website. "I think he sees the game differently now than when he first came up, which is very common for a young starting pitcher."

Seattle's Kyle Seager is batting .383 with seven doubles, two homers and eight RBIs during a 13-game hitting streak. The third baseman is a career .198 hitter against the Angels, but is 4 for 9 with two doubles, a homer, two RBIs and four runs over the last two matchups.

He's also 2 for 4 versus Richards.

Los Angeles' Josh Hamilton is 6 for 12 following a 1-for-21 slump, but hit .182 in six games in Seattle last season.
