The Seattle Mariners have placed catcher Jesus Sucre on the 15-day disabled list with a left hand injury, according to Greg Johns of MLB.com. Sucre has been out since he was hit on the left hand with a bat on a backswing during Tuesday’s contest against the Chicago White Sox. While he doesn’t have any broken bones in his hand, he does have a severe bone bruise and ligament damage that makes it impossible for him to swing a bat or catch at this time. Manager Eric Wedge told reporters that the injury is healing slower than the team hoped or expected. "We tested everything yesterday and it's not what we had hoped or even anticipated," Wedge said. "So we put him on the DL and got Triunfel back up here." In Sucre’s absence, the Mariners have mostly relied on veteran catcher Kelly Shoppach. Rookie Brandon Bantz – who the team is carrying as a second catcher – got the start for yesterday’s afternoon game, and Seattle recalled infielder Carlos Triunfel from Triple-A to take Sucre’s spot on the roster. Prior to suffering his injury, Sucre appeared in eight games for the Mariners. The 25-year-old was 5-for-26 with three RBI over 29 plate appearances.
