Baek, who’d been outstanding so far in his starts for Tacoma, is out. “Strained flexor bundle” is the word. He’s gone on the 15-day DL, but the word on the street is that he could be out a month or longer. Something should come out about expected return date soon.
From the Everett Herald:
Utility player Scott Spiezio, who went on the 15-day DL Wednesday because of a strained oblique muscle in his left side, also has been stricken with the flu bug that has swept the team. Spiezio, in fact, hasn’t returned from Southern California, where the Mariners played the Anaheim Angels early this week when he was hurt.
Uh huh. Somewhere in the greater LA area, there’s a nice hotel with a highly-paid backup corner infielder being held in a room by hired goons who make sure he’s fed, comfortable, and out of the lineup.
“But I’m feeling much better.”
“I’m afraid you’re going to have a setback if you don’t step back from the door, Mr. Spiezio. Would you like me to have someone bring up some magazines?”
“You’re not going to drive me out into the desert and tie me to a cactus to die so you can get out of my paying my contract, are you?”
