Felix Hernandez: Elbow Shows 'Wear and Tear'
Update: Hernandez's elbow showed signs of possible "wear and tear" during a physical last week, though there's no concern of an immediate issue, the Seattle Times reports. The Mariners, however, are seeking contractual language in his pending extension that protects them in the event of an injury down the road.

Recommendation: While not considered serious now, the elbow issue could signal a possible problem at some point during the length of his contract extension, which is what prompted the Mariners to hold up the deal. A contract announcement is expected before Hernandez takes the field Wednesday on the first day of spring training.
