David Aardsma reported no problems following a bullpen session earlier this week, but manager Eric Wedge said yesterday that the Mariners “still have no timetable” for the closer’s return from hip surgery.
Wedge told Quinn Roberts of MLB.com that “the physical side is good, but he is still getting built up.”
Immediately after the surgery there were reports that the Mariners hoped to have Aardsma back around Opening Day, but now the best-case scenario seems to be a late-April return.
