Triunfel to be examined in Seattle

Top infield prospect Carlos Triunfel, who broke his left fibula sliding into second base last night in a Class AA game, is to be examined in Seattle on Monday by Dr. Edward Khalfayan, the team’s medical director. We told you last night it was his tibia that was broken, but the team corrected its earlier information today and told us it was the fibula — a bone that runs along the side of the lower leg below the knee.
The thing to be determined now is whether Triunfel needs surgery. If not, he could be out only six to eight weeks. If he does need it, his season could be pretty much done.
“Hopefully he does not and it’s six to eight weeks,” Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu said this morning. “We don’t know that yet. It’s unfortunate. The fortunate thing is that, maybe it’s early in the season, he can come back and get quite a bit of playing time before the year’s out, if everything goes well.
“He’s a tremendous talent, really impressed me in spring training. And we’re awfully lucky to have him in this organization.”
By the way, Ichiro had his game rained out in Arizona today. But the team is satisfied with the at-bats he had his first two games down there. He’ll work out with the team on Monday at Safeco Field, then likely return to action on Wednesday.
