Seattle Mariners Roster Report 2009-04-27

Seattle Mariners Roster Report 2009-04-27
INF Chris Burke, acquired by the Mariners during spring training from San Diego, was traded back to the Padres last week when San Diego needed infield help because of injuries. Burke had been playing for Triple-A Tacoma.


--CF Franklin Gutierrez is fighting a minor eye infection. After being out of the lineup on Saturday, however, he was back in center field on Sunday.

--RHP Carlos Silva had just one win in his previous 27 starts before getting the victory Saturday in Anaheim. He allowed the Angels three runs in five innings despite experiencing some minor shoulder problems. He said the discomfort cropped up when he was warming up before the game.

--C Kenji Johjima is hitting and throwing on the side and should be ready to come off the disabled list on or about Friday, the first day he's eligible. Johjima has been battling right hamstring problems and is starting to do some running in preparation for his return to active status.

--RF Ichiro Suzuki had his streak of consecutive multiple-hit games end at four Sunday in Anaheim. He had one hit, a bunt single, and his average sits at .333, a good sign for both he and the Mariners, because April is the only month in which his career average was under .300 coming into the season (.294).


RHP Brandon Morrow (right shoulder stiffness) was unavailable April 25-26.

1B Mike Sweeney (back spasm) left the April 22 game, and he didn't play April 23. He returned April 24.

INF Ronny Cedeno (strained right hamstring) was out of the lineup April 23-25. He is day-to-day.

LHP Tyler Johnson (left shoulder surgery in May 2008) started the season in the minors. He will pitch in extended spring training in late April.
