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.
