MARINERS: LHP Jason Vargas (6-4, 3.45 ERA, 1.03 WHIP)
The 29-year-old Vargas, in his seventh major league season and fifth with the Mariners, will make his 13th start and second against the Angels. Vargas, who lost to the Angels May 4, is coming off a 10-3 win over the Texas Rangers.
A native of Apple Valley, CA., the 6-0, 215-pound Vargas was selected in the second round of the 2004 amateur draft by the Florida Marlins.
He made his debut with Florida July 14, 2005, pitching one inning of relief in a 13-7 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Mariners acquired Vargas as part of a three-team swap Dec. 11, 2008, when the New York Mets sent him along with Mike Carp, Ezequiel Carrera, Endy Chavez, Maikel Cleto and Aaron Heilman to the Mariners. The Mariners sent Sean Green, J.J. Putz and Jeremy Reed to the Mets.
The Mariners also sent Luis Valbuena to the Indians. The Mets sent Joe Smith to the Indians, who sent Franklin Gutierrez to the Mariners.
Vargas, the only lefty in Seattles starting rotation, has a career record of 34-43, 4.40 ERA, including 28-35, 4.09 ERA with the Mariners.

The 29-year-old Santana, in his eighth major league season, all with the Angels, will be making his 12th start and second against the Mariners. Santana had a no-decision against Seattle May 25, and is coming off a no-decision against the Yankees.
A native of La Romana, Dominican Republic, the 6-2, 185-pound Santana was signed by the Anaheim Angels as an amateur free agent in 2000.
Santana pitched in the Angels minor league system until May 17, 2005, when he made his major league debut in a 13-5 loss to the Cleveland Indians. Santana, the losing pitcher, allowed six earned runs on eight hits in 4.0 innings and gave up two home runs. He also gave up the pitching equivalent of the cycle to the first four batters he faced a triple to Grady Sizemore, a double to Coco Crisp, a single to Travis Hafner and a home run to Ben Broussard.
Santana went 12-8 over the 2005 season and has been a fixture in the Angels rotation since. He has three seasons of at least 16 wins, winning a career-high 17 in 2007.
He made the American League All-Star team in 2008 when he went 16-7, 3.49 ERA.
On July 27, 2011, Santana pitched a no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians. He struck out 10, walked one and allowed an unearned run.
Santana will bring a career record of 89-73, 4.25 ERA into Tuesday’s game at Anaheim Stadium.
- 2012: Santana, who lost his first six decisions, has pitched into the sixth inning in seven starts and allowed at least four earned runs in four of them.

2012 RECORDS / MILESTONES
- April 24: Catcher Miguel Olivo matched the franchise record when he was charged with three passed balls in a 7-4 win at Detroit. Jerry Narron let three balls get by him Oct. 4, 1980, and Jeff Clement did likewise Aug. 10, 2008 (Clement was catching knuckleballer R.A. Dickey).
- April 27: Michael Saunders joined Donnie Scott (April 29, 1985) and Jimmy Presley (April 8, 1986) as the only Mariners to hit two home runs in a game in the ninth inning or later (solo homer in the 9th, grand slam in the 10th).
- April 30: When both Miguel Olivo and Jesus Montero homered, it marked the first time in franchise history that two players had homered in the same game as a catcher.
- May 2: Ichiro set a club record for most putouts by a right fielder in a nine-inning game, registering 10 in a 5-4 loss at Tampa.
- May 3: The Mariners featured a lineup at Tampa Bay that included seven left- handed hitters and two switch-hitters. It marked only the third time in club history that the Mariners used an all left-sided lineup. Others: Aug. 13, 1983 at California and Aug. 9, 1983 at Oakland.
- May 5: Combined one-hitter by Felix Hernandez and Steve Delabar vs. Minnesota was the 13th in Mariners history. Ten have been thrown by one pitcher, three combined. Most recent combined: Michael Pineda, Jeff Gray and Brandon League vs. Tampa, July 30, 2011. Most recent by one pitcher: Jarrod Washburn, July 6, 2009.
- May 9: When John Jaso batted leadoff against Detroit, it marked the first time since 1978 that a catcher had hit first for the Marines (Bob Stinson). Oddly, lefty Jaso led off against Tiger lefty Drew Smyly.
- May 8: Kevin Millwood’s 2-0 shutout marked his first in nearly nine years. He did not surrender his first hit until there were two outs in the sixth. Millwood’s gem marked only the fourth time in 1,440 games at Coors Field that an opposing pitcher held the Rockies to two hits or less while shutting them out. Millwood’s complete game also was the first by a Mariner in 2012.
- May 27: The pinch-hit grand slam allowed by Felix Hernandez to Alberto Callaspo marked just the sixth against the Mariners in 35 years, and the first since May 6, 1988 when Pat Sheridan of Detroit hit one off Mike Jackson.
- May 30: Mariners defeated Texas 21-8, just the third time in franchise history they have scored 20 or more runs in a game. The Mariners, with 20 hits, became the first team since 1880 to score 20 runs in a game in the same season it also go perfect-oed.
