April 2 The Seattle Times reports that although Felix Hernandez won't run for a couple of weeks, he is expected to be ready to make his scheduled start on Friday. Bothered by shin splints, Hernandez threw 40 pitches in the bullpen yesterday and has begun doing cardio using a stationary bike and an elliptical machine. "He'll be fine," trainer Rick Griffin said. "He's 19 years old. Think about when you were 19. You could do anything you want anytime you wanted to."
