Felix Hernandez, who hurt his left ankle in his last start against the Mets in a collision at home plate, will not start against the Blue Jays on Tuesday according to manager Jim Riggleman.
"We're pretty sure it is going to be a combination of guys out of our bullpen," he said. "We know it's not going to be Felix. Depends on what happens out there today and tomorrow [in Seattle]."
"I wish I could tell you more about Felix [Hernandez] or even [Miguel] Batista, but I really don't have any information," Riggleman said. "It's basically when they come in every day and how they feel."
Hernandez is still a little gimpy from the sprained left ankle he injured during his start against the Mets last Tuesday night in New York and has been ruled out of a start on Tuesday night against the Blue Jays. Batista says his back is bothering him and he, too, is questionable.
Riggleman said that if neither Hernandez nor Batista are able to pitch on Tuesday, one of them could be placed on the 15-day disabled list and a replacement brought in from the Minor Leagues.
"It might be we don't need to do that," he said, "but if we get strapped, we may do it."
