Adrian Beltre is home in Los Angeles, recuperatng from shoulder surgery, Chris Woodward is at thid base and the Seattle Mariners have all but cancelled the Wladimir Balentien-is-the-regular-left fielder experiement.
Ken Griffey Jr. is out there tonight, with Mike Sweeney the designated hitter.
With Endy Chavez on the disabled list, the Mariners brought in left-handed hitting Ryan Langerhans as a defensive replacement. Balentien’s future with the franchise is now behind him.
By next week, the Mariners might be using a new-look infielder of 1B Russell Branyan, 2B Yuniesky Betancourt, 3B Jose Lopez and SS Ronny Cedeno.
