Felix in the pen

No, Felix Hernandez is not moving to the bullpen. He’s just in there as I write this, throwing a bullpen session at Safeco Field under the observation of Mariners trainer Rick Griffin and others (Update: it just ended).
Manager Jim Riggleman said Hernandez, who is on the disabled list with a sprained left ankle and could come off the DL as soon as Tuesday, will throw another lighter bullpen session on that day. Then the plan is to have him return to the starting rotation this Thursday or Friday when the Mariners are on the road.
Hernandez threw some pitches off a mound yesterday but had a more extensive session today.
