Felix Hernandez will throw his first spring training bullpen session on Wednesday.
Questions recently arose about the health of King Felix's right elbow, and his new contract has a clause in it to protect the Mariners in the instance he sustains a specific elbow injury. It's pretty much a non-issue, though, as Hernandez has been on his normal routine this offseason. The M's are just easing him into things. "We just need to get him ready by April," said pitching coach Carl Willis.
