Welcome to the last day of February! The Mariners will be spending it in Goodyear playing a game of practice baseball against the team from Cleveland.
First up, injury tweets!
Couple of notes on some Mariners reliever prospects: RHP Matt Festa arrived to ST with a hip/sciatic issue and hasn't thrown. He's rehabbing the injury. RHP Art Warren is dealing with hip issue as well, but is expected to pitch in a game in three or four days.— Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) February 28, 2018
Mariners taking it slow with some relievers. Phelps threw 1st live BP yesterday, all went well. Vincent should throw live BP in next few days. Servais happy with what he saw from Zep who made a number of mechanical changes in 1st outing yesterday.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) February 28, 2018
Mariners are hoping Haniger can see the hand specialist before Friday, looking for him to be cleared before they allow him to resume hitting.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) February 28, 2018
Heredia should be cleared to play in games within a week.
That’s all fine, I’m sure. Nothing more to read into here. Nope.
The other Mariners pitchers we’ll likely see today:
