We're hearing this morning from Eric Wedge that Seattle Mariners left hander bullpen guy George Sherrill will have surgery on elbow in early May and is "more than likely" done for the season.

Per Geoff Baker of the Seattletimes

Mariners manager Eric Wedge said this morning that "there's a lot going on" in the elbow and the timeframe for any recovery won't be completely known until doctors get inside for a look. But Wedge says it's "more than likely" Sherrill won't be back in uniform this year.
For now, the Mariners will stick with Charlie Furbush and Lucas Luetge for left-handed relief.
