Felix Hernández (shoulder) put on 10-day disabled list. Since his MLB debut (Aug. 4, 2005), his 2,442 1/3 IP are the most by any pitcher.
Hernandez is 2-2 in five starts with a 4.73 ERA in 2017, well MLB Jerseys Wholesale above his career ERA of 3.18. The 2010 AL Cy Young winner is 156-111 in 12-plus MLB seasons, all in Seattle.
Servais tried to downplay the situation but admitted that shoulder problems for a pitcher can be problematic.
“He just didn’t have much tonight,” Servais said. “It was like dead arm. He didn’t have any pain or anything like that. Nothing was coming out. And he just didn’t feel good. Any time it’s a pitcher and his shoulder, you are concerned. Hopefully he’s OK.”
In another move Wednesday, the M’s placed outfielder Mitch Haniger on the DL with a strained oblique. He also left Tuesday’s game in the third inning.
A burglary ring that police say targeted expensive homes in the Seattle area was especially proud of one of its conquests.
Police say one of three men arrested this week in connection with 123 break-ins around the city was wearing a watch stolen from Mariners star Felix Hernandez’s home that was inscribed with the pitcher’s nickname, “King Felix.”
Police in suburban Bellevue held a news conference Wednesday to announce the arrests, though charges were not immediately available. According to the Seattle Times, police said they recovered nearly $500,000 worth of stolen items from the home where two of the suspects were arrested and the men’s vehicles.
Among the more curious items seized by police was a 2000 New York Yankees World Series champions ring apparently owned by Hernandez.
Now Hernandez and the other burglary victims will get their jewelry MLB Baseball Jerseys and other possessions back, allowing the Mariners pitcher to wear his custom-engraved watch again — though presumably not the World Series ring.
