The Mariners announced after the game that Hernandez is going on the 15-day DL, and Cesar Jimenez has been recalled from Tacoma.
Don't worry too much -- there was no new damage found in his left ankle when Felix was examined today by Mariners' team doctors., But when he tried to throw, he was still having trouble with his landing, so they decided that he needed a few more days before he could pitch. The DL move is retroactive to June 24, so it made sense to bring up another pitcher rather than go short any longer.
Gotta write my stories.
