Mariners ace Felix Hernandez will be pushed back a few more days and start on Tuesday night when Seattle opens a three-game series against San Diego. Seattle manager Eric Wedge announced the decision on Friday as the Mariners opened an interleague series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. There was consideration of starting Hernandez on Sunday in the series finale against the Dodgers. Wedge said that either way, Hernandez would get six more starts before the All-Star break. Blake Beavan will get the start Sunday against the Dodgers. Hernandez last started on June 1 against the White Sox when he was tagged for four earned runs in five innings, his shortest start of the year. Hernandez said he was bothered by a sore back during the start and missed his turn against the Angels last weekend.
