Felix Hernandez Placed on 15-day DL

The Seattle Mariners have placed Felix Hernandez on the 15-day DL. The team says that Hernandez suffered a right calf strain.

The Mariners hope he will only miss 2 starts with this injury. Felix is 4-4 with a 2.86 ERA in 10 starts this year. The right-hander is eligible to come off the DL on June 12th.

This is only the third time that Hernandez has been on the DL in his 12-year career. He has not been on the DL since 2008 when he suffered a sprained ankle.

James Paxton will be called up from Triple-A to fill the empty spot on the roster. The lefty is 12-8 with a 3.16 ERA in 30 starts for Seattle in three seasons.
