King Felix out weeks

Ottawa Sun - - SPORTS - MLB NOTE­BOOK — Post­media Net­work wires

In the midst of the AL wild card chase, the Seat­tle Mariners will be with­out starter Felix Her­nan­dez for three to four weeks be­cause of bur­si­tis in his right shoul­der.

Gen­eral man­ager Jerry Dipoto gave the up­date on Her­nan­dez on Tues­day.

Marco Gon­za­les, ac­quired in a trade with St. Louis last month, has taken Her­nan­dez’s spot in the ro­ta­tion.

Seat­tle also placed righthanded re­liever David Phelps on the 10-day dis­abled list with an im­pinge­ment in his right el­bow. He’s ex­pected to miss two to three weeks.

The Mariners also ac­quired right-han­der Ernesto Fri­eri from the Texas Rangers for $1.

Fri­eri, 32, was 0-1 with a 5.14 ERA in six re­lief ap­pear­ances for Texas.

Clay­ton Ker­shaw threw ag­gres­sively off flat ground on Tues­day but Los An­ge­les man­ager Dave Roberts says the team will take a cau­tious ap­proach to the Dodgers’ ace’s re­turn to the ro­ta­tion.

Ker­shaw has been side­lined with a back in­jury since July 23,

Roberts said there is no timetable for the left-han­der’s re­turn and said the two have talked about Ker­shaw need­ing four or five starts to be ready for the post-sea­son.
