MLB Injury News:
Seattle Mariners first baseman Kendrys Morales was removed
from yesterday’s contest against the New York Yankees due to back stiffness,
according to Greg Johns of MLB.com. Manager Eric Wedge told reporters after the
game that Morales is considered day to day.
"His back locked up on him," manager Eric Wedge
said. "He's feeling better. They've been working on him and we'll just
have to see how he feels tomorrow."
It’s unclear exactly when the stiffness became an issue, but
Johns notes that Morales appeared to be running slowly to first base on a
fourth-inning groundout to shortstop. He was removed an inning later, replaced
by Alex Liddi.
Morales has been the Mariners’ everyday first baseman since
Justin Smoak strained his oblique muscle two weeks ago. Liddi figures to see
time at first if Morales is sidelined with his back ailment, as Smoak won’t be back from the DL until at least June 14.
Over 257 plate appearances, Morales has maintained an
impressive batting line of .298/.358/.477 with 18 doubles and eight home runs
in his first season with the Mariners.

This woman is a huge fan of star Seattle Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez, but from the looks of things, she's way more into this massive turkey leg.
Sometimes going to the ballpark can cause one to get a tad hungry and during this Sunday's Seattle Mariners/New York Yankees match at Safeco Field, one fan enjoyed a turkey leg in the stands.
Extra credit for also holding the Felix sign as well...

During Sunday's Mariners-Yankees game at Safeco Field, this Felix Hernandez fan in a regal crown paid tribute to King Felix by smuggling a turkey leg into King's Court section of the stands. Or maybe the Safeco serf thought it was a Renaissance faire.
Either way, it turned out to be a black night as New York won, 2-1, and took three of four from the home team this weekend.
I’ve seen some crazy things in my 40 years of watching baseball, and one of the most bizarre acts of our National Pastime is watching what some crazed fans would do just to catch a foul ball or a home run into the seats. You know what I’m talking about, right?

Get to know the young hitter who has been compared to Brett Lawrie and who was rated as the 69th overall draft prospect in this class by Baseball America.
Seattle Mariners starter Jeremy Bonderman was looking to rebound from a 2013 debut against the Minnesota Twins which saw him surrender seven earned runs, and he delivered in a big way during a 4-1 victory on Friday night.Taking on the near-anemic offense of the Yankees, Bonderman struggled in the opening frame and eventually conceded a run on a Travis Hafner ground out. It would...
Brendan Ryan and Jason Bay both hit two-out, two-run singles in Seattle's four-run fourth inning, Jeremy Bonderman pitched six sharp innings to win for the first time since 2010, and the Mariners beat the New York Yankees 4-1 on Friday night.
All of Seattle's offense came in one stretch of the fourth inning when six straight batters reached base, capped by the clutch hits...
What do some of the most successful teams in any professional sport have in common? Their owners are actively involved and can be seen. For the Seattle Mariners, that is not the case. For whatever reason, Hiroshi Yamauchi has decided not to be involved with the MLB team he owns and instead employs two men to represent him (Howard Lincoln and Chuck Armstrong). At what point of buying...
When the United States men's national team finally made it up to the Pacific Northwest, where the craziest of soccer crazies have resided for some time now, it was to be a perfect match.
In a region where the cooler temperatures should favor the Americans over all their more southerly rivals and large crowds could be relied upon to be overwhelmingly pro-USA, those factors would...
The Seattle Mariners minor league affiliates are getting towards their All-Star breaks and California League officials selected three of the M's farmhands to the team of midsummer's best in High-A.
Every time Felix Hernandez takes the mound, something special can happen.
The 2010 American League Cy Young winner is 105-80 with a 3.18 ERA in his eight-plus year career (through June 7, 2013).
Imagine how many more victories the Seattle Mariners right-hander would have if he pitched for a better team. Example: He was just one game over .500 at 13-12 in 2010, but posted an AL...
The Seattle Mariners' Hisashi Iwakuma has been spectacular thus far, with his only loss surprisingly coming against the lowly Houston Astros.
Manager Bo Porter's team, however, could be hard-pressed to get the best of him again at Safeco Field.
Looking to stay unbeaten at home, Iwakuma brings a 21 2-3 scoreless innings streak into Monday night's series opener against...
Vinnie Catricala is heading home! The Sacramento native was sent from the Seattle Mariners to the Oakland Athletics this morning in exchange for a player to be named. No note on where Catricalla will be sent, but he was batting .253 in the Southern League (Double-A), so you can only expect he’d play for the Midland Rockhounds once assigned.
22 year old, Catricala was ranked 12th...
Home plate umpire Mike Muchlinski had a little trouble with his footing during the first inning of Sunday’s Mariners and Yankees’ game at Safeco Field. Muchlinski was doing his best to avoid Mariners catcher Kelly Shoppach who was chasing a Vernon Wells foul ball. The result was quite hilarious.
