Seattle Mariners Roster Report 2009-05-15


Seattle Mariners Roster Report 2009-05-15
--RF Ichiro Suzuki's single in the eighth inning Thursday gave him a hit in each of the eight games of the road trip. He's 18-for-59 for the month, a .305 average. May is historically his best month (.364).

--LHP Erik Bedard, who pitched the final four innings of his last start with an aching hamstring, probably will be skipped in the rotation Saturday against Boston. Manager Don Wakamatsu called Bedard "a tentative scratch." For the moment, the Mariners aren't making a roster move and will hope that Bedard will be good to go for a start Thursday. Tentatively, LHP Garrett Olson will get the Saturday start.

--LHP Garrett Olson tentatively will get the Saturday start with Erik Bedard ailing.

--3B Adrian Beltre's power stroke seems to be coming back. He has two doubles and two homers in his last seven games. He's also picked up his batting average at the same time, going 9-for-28 (.321) to push his overall average to .227 from .204.

--RHP Felix Hernandez settled a couple of scores with seven shutout innings against the Rangers on Thursday. He came into May with a career ERA of 5.61, the worst of any month for him. And he'd suffered more losses at the hands of the Rangers (nine) than against any other team. No other team has more than four wins against him.
