Arthur RhodesArthur Rhodes, the 37-year-old left-hander the Seattle Mariners hoped would recapture his best in the bullpen this season, has a torn ulnar collateral ligament and is almost certainly lost for the season.

A career-threatening injury, Rhodes has two options – undergo ‘Tommy John’ surgery or try to rehabilitate the injury without surgery and come back.

"We can fill the role Arthur would have had, but we can’t replace Arthur," manager Mike Hargrove said. "We were a better team with Arthur than we’ll be without him."
