Scribner (back) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Sunday. Scribner has been sidelined since early March due to back problems, so he's already missed the 60-day minimum and can be activated whenever he returns to full health. By moving Scribner to the 60-day DL, the Mariners were able to open up a 40-man roster spot for utility man Patrick Kivlehan, who was acquired from the Rangers on Sunday.
Scribner (back) was placed on the 15-day DL on Sunday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports. Scribner missed the entirety of spring training with back issues and isn't expected to return until mid-May at the earliest. As a result, Scribner could ultimately get transferred to the 60-day DL if the Mariners have a need at any point in the next month and a half to open up a 40-man roster spot.
Scribner could be placed on the 60-day disabled list if the Mariners need an extra roster spot, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports. Scribner has been dealing with a strained latissimus in his back, and his recovery has been going much slower than planned. General manager Jerry Dipoto said that they currently do not need the spot, but the right-hander is not expected to appear within the first month or so of the season, so it is still a possibility should that need arise.
Scribner's (back) season debut could be pushed back further after a recent evaluation, Bob Dutton of The News Tribune reports. "I don't know all of the details of that," manager Scott Servais said, "but the feeling I got is it wasn't great. So it's not progressing as he or we had hoped." Already expected to begin the season on the disabled list, Scribner's recovery from a strained latissimus in his back hasn't gone as planned. As a result, it's unclear when he'll be cleared to take part in bullpen workouts, but his previously proposed return date of mid-to-late April seems to be on shaky ground.
Scribner (back) will likely open the season on the disabled list, the Tacoma News-Tribune's Bob Dutton reports. He has had lat issues several other times in his career, so the Mariners plan to be careful brining him back. Tony Zych and Joel Peralta should garner more seventh and eighth inning appearances while Scribner is out.
