Mariners Place David Phelps On DL; Felix Hernandez Diagnosed With Bursitis

The Mariners have placed righty David Phelps on the 10-day DL, per a club announcement. He’s dealing with what the team is calling an elbow impingement and is expected to be sidelined for two or three weeks. Meanwhile, the club further announced that starter Felix Hernandez has been diagnosed with shoulder bursitis that will keep him out for three to four weeks.

With the move, Seattle has cleared way for the activation of just-acquired first baseman Yonder Alonso. He’ll suit up against his former team, the Athletics, in tonight’s action.

Of course, the M’s had only just acquired Phelps, too. It hurts to see the organization’s top deadline acquisition head out of action so soon after he had joined the team.
