MLB Injury News:
Seattle Mariners first baseman Justin Smoak had been
recovering from an oblique injury for the past week. He made it back to the point where the M’s thought he was ready to rejoin the team this weekend, but
the injury didn’t improve and Smoak told reporters – including Greg Johns of
MLB.com – that it was decided a stint on the disabled list was required.
"The first couple days were encouraging, thinking it
wasn't going to be that long, but then it's just stayed the same," he
said. "Left-handed, I just haven't been able to do very much. I don't want
to go out there and be a right-handed hitter and a righty comes out on the
mound and they have to take me out or have me go up there as a righty. So it's
just one of those things where it is what it is. I'll get better and be back
Smoak had been out since May 25, but he did return to
pinch-hit on Wednesday, so the DL stint will be retroactive to that date. For
this reason, the earliest Smoak can’t be activated from the DL until June 14.
Prior to being sidelined by his oblique injury, Smoak was
struggling to start the season. Over 180 plate appearances he hit only
.240/.350/.344 with seven doubles and three home runs.
