Seattle Mariners Roster Report 2009-04-30

Seattle Mariners Roster Report 2009-04-30
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 Class AAA Tacoma.


--3B Adrian Beltre had a down April, no doubt about that. But he singled in his final at-bat in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the White Sox then put together a 4-for-4 game Wednesday in the series finale. That brought his batting average up to .207, an increase of 38 points.

--RF Ichiro Suzuki was given an intentional walk with first base open in the sixth inning Wednesday by Chicago RHP Gavin Floyd. It was the first intentional walk for Ichiro, who led the club with a dozen intentional walks last year. However, Ichiro still has not drawn an unintentional walk this season.

--RHP Shawn Kelley hadn't given up an earned run in his first six games. But he gave up back-to-back homers to Chicago LF Carlos Quentin and RF Jermaine Dye in the seventh inning and wound up taking the first loss of his big league career.

--LHP Erik Bedard has only a 2-1 record, but he could easily be among the league leaders in wins. In his two no-decisions, including one Wednesday in Chicago, he left both games with the lead. In his one loss, he allowed just two runs (one earned) but was victim of an April 18 shutout thrown by Detroit RHP Edwin Jackson and his bullpen.


RHP Brandon Morrow (right shoulder stiffness) was unavailable April 25-26. He didn't pitch April 28 or 29.

INF Ronny Cedeno (strained right hamstring) was out of the lineup April 23-29. He is day-to-day.

C Kenji Johjima (strained right hamstring) went on the 15-day disabled list April 16. He began playing in extended spring training April 28, and he might be activated May 1.

LHP Ryan Rowland-Smith (left triceps tendinitis) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 11. He threw a ball April 27 and April 28, but he there was no timetable for his return.

LHP Cesar Jimenez (left biceps tendinitis) went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to March 29. He began a rehab assignment with Class AAA Tacoma on April 24, and he could be activated in early May.

LHP Ryan Feierabend (Tommy John elbow surgery in March 2009) went on the 60-day disabled list March 16.

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.

RHP Chad Cordero (right shoulder surgery in July 2008) signed a minor league deal with the Mariners during the spring, and he wasn't ready for opening day. He will pitch in extended spring training in late April.
