It’s a lovely day here in San Diego and the Mariners are taking some early batting practice.
Junior’s there, along with Ronny Cedeno, Franklin “Tape Measure” Gutierrez, Wladimir Balentien, Kenji Johjima, Guillermo Quiroz and. . .a blond-headed left-handed hitter. Why, it looks like Mike Carp.
It is Mike Carp.
Nothing has been announced as yet, but I am guessing that left-hander Erik Bedard will go on the 15-day disabled list. He missed his last start.
