M’s and Twins Will Make it Good. Another Mariner Injuried
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The series finale between the Seattle Mariners and the Minnesota Twins has been postponed because of wintry weather. With snow in the forecast and game-time temperatures expected to hover around freezing, the game was called off about three hours before it was supposed to begin. It was rescheduled for May 14, a mutual day off for both teams.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Seattle Mariners first baseman Ryon Healy injured his right ankle during a postgame workout Saturday and likely will miss at least a few games this week.
Healy was injured following an 11-4 win over Minnesota and showed up on crutches and in a walking boot Sunday, when the series finale was postponed due to poor weather. Manager Scott Servais tells MLB.com that Healy will have an MRI and likely miss the upcoming three-game series against Kansas City.
Healy opened the season with a 1-for-21 slump before hitting a three-run double in the eighth inning Saturday.
Seattle could have Daniel Vogelbach, Andrew Romine or Taylor Motter handle first base in Healy's absence.
Starting position players Nelson Cruz, Mike Zunino and Ben Gamel are already on the 10-day disabled list.
