Mallex Smith (elbow) will not travel with the Mariners when they make their spring trip to Japan.
Rather than travel with the team, Smith will stay back in the States in order to accrue minor league at-bats while he continues to rehab from a right elbow injury which has been bothering him throughout the spring. While he won't be racking up the frequent flier miles upcoming, Smith has not yet been ruled out for Opening Day.(více...)
Smith (elbow) won't travel to Japan when the Mariners take on the Athletics in an early season-opening series on March 20-21, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Smith has been making progress in his recovery from an elbow strain, but the team saw little sense in rushing him back just for two games. He could be ready to go by the time the rest of the regular season begins on March 28. The Mariners will likely slide Mitch Haniger over to center field in his absence, opening up an outfield corner for Ichiro Suzuki to play a pair of games in his native country.(více...)
