Beavan’s next start may get pushed back
Blake Beavan is a ”longshot” to make his scheduled start on
Sunday for the Seattle Mariners, but manager Eric Wedge wouldn’t
rule out the possibility.
Wedge said Wednesday that Beavan won’t throw until Friday.
Beavan had to leave his start on Monday night after getting hit in
the arm by a Miguel Cabrera line drive. Wedge said Beavan could get
pushed back a couple of days and either Kevin Millwood or Jason
Vargas could start on regular rest on Sunday against the New York
Yankees because the Mariners are off on Thursday.
Wedge also said center fielder Franklin Gutierrez is being sat
down for a few days after plantar fasciitis in his foot flared up.
Gutierrez is fully recovered from the pectoral injury that landed
him on the disabled list to start the season. But the foot problems
have slowed his recovery. He is in Seattle being examined by the
Mariners’ training staff.
