‘King’ Felix to miss 3-4 weeks
It’s second time this season he’s had shoulder bursitis.
In the midst of the AL wildcard chase, the Seattle Mariners will be without starter Felix Hernandez for three to four weeks because of bursitis in his right shoulder.
Hernandez was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday in Kansas City and placed on the disabled list with discomfort in his pitching arm. Hernandez is 5-4 with a 4.28 ERA in 13 starts this season. Hernandez missed nearly two months this season with shoulder inflammation.
Seattle also placed reliever David Phelps on the 10-day DL with an impingement in his right elbow. He’s expected to miss two to three weeks.
Angels: Outfielder Mike Trout joined Mel Ott, Jimmie Foxx and Mickey Mantle as the only players to compile 1,000 hits, 500 runs and 500 walks by their age-25 season. Trout already was the only player to get 150 homers, 400 extra-base hits and 150 steals before his 26th birthday.
Mariners’ Felix Hernandez is 5-4 with 4.28 ERA in 13 starts.
