Tommy Hanson (RHP, LAA)

Franklin Morales (LHP, BOS)
Injury: Strained left pectoral muscle

Estimated DL time: This can be a tough ailment to project. He did some light work on Friday, suggesting he won’t be shutdown. Boston thinks he can return somewhere between 17-21 days.
Estimated 2013 effect upon return:  He shouldn’t have any issues.

Franklin Gutierrez (RHP, SEA)
Injury: Strained right hamstring
DL date: June 24
Estimated DL time: Because this is a repeat injury, look for the Mariners to give him enough time to avoid a third. Therefore he’s out indefinitely for the time being until we know more.
Estimated 2013 effect upon return:  He definitely will run less when he returns.

Michael Stutes (RHP, PHI)
Injury: Tendinitis, right biceps
