Hernandez out up to a month
Right-hander Felix Hernandez will be lost to the Seattle Mariners from three to four weeks because of shoulder bursitis, general manager Jerry Dipoto said Tuesday.
Hernandez was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday at Kansas City and put on the disabled list because of discomfort in his pitching arm.
The veteran is 5-4 with a 4.28 ERA in 13 starts. He sat out nearly two months this season because of shoulder inflammation.
Seattle also announced that it put reliever David Phelps on the DL because of an impingement in his right elbow.
