The Mariners will be down two regulars today. Brendan Ryan is still stiff and sore after being hit on his left elbow by Hiroki Kuroda yesterday, and Mike Carp is gone for the day, flying to see his new baby girl that was born yesterday. He had hurried out of the clubhouse after yesterday’s game, which is why there were no quotes from him about his game-winning hit.
Carp will re-join the team tomorrow in Baltimore. As for Ryan, Wedge listed him as day to day and said he expects him to play in the series against the Orioles.


“I’m hoping he’s ready tomorrow,” he said. ” I’d like to have him available today, being a little thin.”
Ryan said he felt about the same as yesterday.
“I thought it might be a little bit better. I guess the pain is down a little. If I’m sitting still, it doesn’t really hurt. But I can’t bend it much.”
Ryan said that he hopes to play tomorrow in Baltimore, but added, “I just don’t think it’s that realistic. There’s too much swelling. I’m going to have to get some range of motion first. That might be a couple days away.”
I asked Ryan if he’s going to start wearing the “body armor” that a lot of players don to protect their elbows and forearms.
“I might have to. I’ll have to wear it in BP to get used to it. I used to wear it after I got hit in high school, but my college coach didn’t want us wearing that. So I stopped wearing it my freshman year.”
Besides Ryan, the only position players on the bench today are Casper Wells and Miguel Olivo.
