Zduriencik also mentioned the importance of a healthy Sean White, placed on the 60-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis last September. White had a 2.80 ERA out of the bullpen last season.

Seattle likely will limit Johnson during the early part of spring training.
"A lot of new fresh faces, a lot of enthusiasm," Johnson said. "Totally taking this organization in a different direction, and it's for the better. Just a lot of excitement, man, getting going. We're pumped."
