The news here in Seattle is that he's not likely to play everyday at 1B because of his knees, so DH is the ideal spot for him, but Edgar Martinez is going to retire at the end of the year, so they still want to give Edgar a good sending-off, and let him play some. Last night, Edgar was the DH and Bucky played 1B. Manager Bob Melvin has even suggested that Edgar might play a bit at 1B if Bucky's knees don't allow him to play their full-time. They're going to try as much as possible to keep his bat in the lineup but Edgar's presence makes it tougher.
