The Royals will play their first non-Rangers team in spring training today, a battle against the Seattle Mariners. That of course, means the return of Jarrod Dyson, who has vowed to test the arm of Salvador Perez.
“I told him I was going to try him. And if he gets me, I'm going to tip my hat running off the field. And if I get him, he'd best believe I'm zooming on him. It's all fun."
Former Mariners pitcher Jason Vargas will get the start as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery. Cheslor Cuthbert gets his first start at second base, with Christian Colón at third base.
This game was originally scheduled for 2 CT, but was moved up due to a rain forecast. You can listen to the game on 610 KCSP in Kansas City, or online with a subscription to MLB.com.
