It took exactly one game for a player to suffer an injury that requires a disabled list stint, as Mariners left fielder Mike Carp hurt his right shoulder diving for a ball against the A’s in Japan and has been placed on the shelf.
Carp played the entire 11-inning game, but was later diagnosed with a sprain and didn’t play in Game 2 last night/this morning.
Carlos Peguero was called up from Triple-A to take his place and the injury is unfortunate because after years of solid production in the minors Carp finally seemed likely to establish himself as a useful big leaguer. And now the already punchless Mariners lineup is without one of its best bats.
