PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - Four Seattle Mariners regulars ... third baseman Adrian Beltre, first baseman Richie Sexson, left fielder Raul Ibanez and shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt ... checked into the team's spring training camp today.

That's three days before the club's first full squad workout at Peoria, Ariz.

Brad Wilkerson also showed up today at Peoria. He is expected to start in right field for the Mariners this seasn after signing a 1-year contract as a free agent,

Among those yet to report to Peoria are second baseman Jose Lopez, designated hitter Jose Vidro and center fielder Ichiro Suzuki.

Suzuki generally doesn't make his way to camp early, but when he arrives he'll have to clear out some space to get to his locker this spring. Three large cardboard boxes are stacked in front and a pile of mail that grows daily sits inside.
