Mariners, Felix, Concerned About Felix's Right Elbow

Because, of course.

From Buster Olney:

As the Seattle Mariners have been in discussions with Felix Hernandez about a record-setting extension, concern has developed over the condition of his pitching elbow, a source says.

The elbow issue is perceived by at least one of the parties in the deal as being a possible impediment to the completion of the new contract.

"It's an issue," said one source.

It may not be anything serious, or even semi-serious. And it may not even threaten the contract, so says Bob Nightengale who broke the original story on Felix's extension.

So maybe it'll all be fine. Dave Cameron offers some calming words on the subject that I encourage you to read.

But, you know, mariners.
