Hernandez has been dealing in Tacoma, but mum's the word from the Mariners camp on his callup.
My guess: when the M's have fallen out of contention by the trade deadline they'll become dealers, possibly moving someone like Meche. At that point — late July, early August — they'll give Felix the call.

I'm not sure of the exact date where major league service this season doesn't bump up arbitration eligibility by one year, but the Mariners would be stupid to bring up Hernandez prior to that date.

I think we may have recently crossed that threshhold ... at least, I recall reading during the preseason that it was sometime in June :-?.
But your point is taken. No way the Mariners burn that arbitration year.

I doubt that we'll see Cain anytime soon. Giants just called up Foppert and will let him grow in the bigs for awhile.
