Seattle Mariners Roster Report 2009-05-12


Seattle Mariners Roster Report 2009-05-12
--1B Mike Sweeney was unavailable to play Sunday after a recurrence of back spasms. He should be ready to play again when Mariners open a three-game series in Texas on Tuesday.

--LHP Jason Vargas, who pitched two games in relief after being called up from Tacoma, will get his first start as a Mariner on Tuesday in Texas. Vargas spent most of his limited time with the Marlins and the Mets the last few years as a starter.

--LHP Ryan Rowland-Smith, on the disabled list with left triceps tendinitis, will throw a simulated game this week in Texas, then throw a bullpen session a couple of days later. After that, he's likely to go out on an injury rehabilitation assignment. He's not likely to be back with the Mariners much before the end of the month.

--RHP Shawn Kelley, who went on the disabled list with a strained left oblique, is likely to need more time than the mandatory 15 days on the DL. He could miss a month or more.

--RF Ichiro Suzuki has 34 hits this season. Of those, 11 have been infield hits, including three in the last five games.

--DH Ken Griffey Jr. had a double Sunday, the 507th of his big-league career. That moves him past Babe Ruth (506). Griffey is alone in 42nd place on the all-time list. Next up is Rickey Henderson (510).

--LHP Tyler Johnson, on the disabled list as he recovers from last year's elbow surgery, is scheduled to throw a simulated game in extended spring training Tuesday in Arizona. At that point he will go on an injury rehabilitation assignment, although the Mariners have not said which club he'll be assigned to.

--RHP Carlos Silva, on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation, is expected to resume throwing this week during the series in Texas.
