2005 Felix Hernandez thread

A few notes from the minor leagues this morning.

Kudos to Corey Brock of the News Tribune for being the only writer to get Jeff Clement’s signing bonus-$3.4 million-in the paper. Clement signed a standard minor league contract, so he won’t need to be added to the 40 man roster until after 2007. He also singled in his professional debut in Everett last night, and will DH again tonight before starting a game behind the dish.

The News Tribune also is the only paper that made it public that Felix Hernandez is going to start for the Rainiers on Saturday, after working out of the bullpen in scheduled relief appearances since his return from his bout with “bursitis”. Saturday is Bobby Livingston’s turn in the rotation, but he was assigned to Everett’s roster to make room for Jorge Campillo, who made his return to Tacoma yesterday.

Now, it may be a bit confusing as to why Livingston got sent to Everett, but its an on-paper move only, a way to clear a roster spot for a few days. A roster spot will reopen for Livingston this weekend when Felix Hernandez is recalled from Tacoma and joins the Mariner bulllpen. Saturday’s start is Felix’s last with Tacoma. He’ll go back to pitching scheduled relief appearances for the M’s during August, and then make several starts in September.

July 30

After he retired as coach, John Wooden wrote poetry – including one effort that said for each door that closed, somewhere a window opened.
Aaron Sele is about to go out a window.

As the Seattle Mariners continue to rework their roster – parting with Pat Borders and bringing up Yuniesky Betancourt and Wiki Gonzalez – Sele added another loss Friday to a career-worst, seven-game losing streak.

Worse, it wasn’t close. It wasn’t competitive.

Instead, the Mariners’ 10-5 loss to the Cleveland Indians was a four-inning piece of evidence that Sele might have run out of time with Seattle.

“Would I be surprised if they let me go?” Sele asked afterward. “No. I was insurance here from the beginning of camp – and last-place teams don’t need insurance. Especially the way I’m pitching.”

The way Sele has pitched, it’s not likely he’ll get another start in Seattle.

What is likely?

Rookie Felix Hernandez may be brought up to start in Sele’s place Thursday in Detroit.

Article from the News Tribune. I was at that M's game last night, it was an incredibly ugly performance (Seles ERA is over 10 in last 7 starts) and the crowd was loud with boos. He won't be starting, I personally think it will be Villone who starts Thursday but if it is Felix it will be exciting to watch! It is slightly dissappointing as I'd of liked to be at Safeco for his first start (instead of it being a road game).

Felix was taken out of the game after 4 IP as he hit the 60 pitch "limit" for the game. They intended 60-80 in case he was in the middle of an inning but they weren't starting him another inning after he was over 60. He struck out the side in the 4th.

Now the good news, King Felix DOMINATED. 4IP, 7K, 0H, 0R, 2BB

Sele was indeed released today but the M's elected to announce Campillo as the scheduled starter in his place. No announcement yet on Felix but it looks like he may be a Rainier for another start or few...

FELIX is with the Mariners in Detroit so he is officially called up. It appears he will work out of the pen at least initially as no start has been announced (only Campillo starting for Sele Tuesday). Should get into a game in the next few days though given he threw only 60 pitches in 4 IP last Saturday.

Rotoworld thinks he may get the start on Thursday:

Now that the Mariners have released Aaron Sele, expect phenom Felix Hernandez (shoulder bursitis) to get his shot in Seattle.
Jorge Campillo will get the start tonight, but Hernandez should be slated to start on Thursday and was reportedly on the M's chartered flight yesterday to Detroit. Hernandez pitched four hitless, scoreless innings against Omaha on Saturday, and Tacoma pitching coach Rafael Chaves is impressed. ''Felix is showing he's probably a little better than the competition in Triple A.'' Aug. 2 - 10:03 am et
Finally The Rock has come back....to New York City!!
