- Felix is expected to be activated after a few upcoming rehab starts.
Servais said the plan is for Felix Hernandez to make at least one rehab start, but probably two, before being activated from the IL. He could slot into that open spot in the rotation when the Mariners are forced to go to five starters— Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) August 9, 2019
