Seattle Mariners Roster Report 2009-05-14


Seattle Mariners Roster Report 2009-05-14
--LHP Jarrod Washburn came into Wednesday's game holding opposing hitters to a .115 batting average with runners in scoring postion, third best in the AL. LHP Erik Bedard (.118) ranked fourth and RHP Felix Hernandez (.167) ninth.

--C Rob Johnson is in the midst of another struggle. After going 0-for-20 earlier in the season, he's hitless in his last 18 at-bats. However, he has continued to get playing time because in 18 games (16 starts) he has the second best catcher's ERA in the league at 3.26.

--SS Yuniesky Betancourt was given the night off after having a long, in depth conversation with manager Don Wakamatsu. The manager has wanted Betancourt -- who has just two walks -- to be more selective at the plate and to keep his focus while playing on defense.

--1B Mike Sweeney had hoped to be available to play in the first two games of the Texas series. However, he is still suffering from back spasms and is day-to-day.

--C Kenji Johjima had a big day Wednesday. In addition to hitting a two-run homer to give the Mariners a three-run lead, he stole a base and threw out a runner attempting to steal.

1B Mike Sweeney (back spasms) did not play May 10-13. He is day-to-day.
