Felix Hernandez questionable for his next start

Felix Hernandez suffered injured his back during his Friday start.  It was thought at the time that it was no big deal, but he’s still hurting:

Hey, the Mariners score runs in bunches these days, so who needs pitching?

Um, oK, I suppose Hernandez missing some time with a sore back would not be a good thing.

Braves third baseman Johan Camargo will begin the regular season on the disabled list with a strained side and back, David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Camargo suffered the injury last week in a Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays and hasn’t played since.

With Camargo out, Rio Ruiz will likely play third base in his place, as well Charlie Culberson and Danny Santana. O’Brien notes that had Camargo not been injured, the Braves likely would’ve left Ruiz off the roster in favor of an extra outfielder or third catcher.

Camargo had a solid rookie season for the Braves in 2017, batting .299/.331/.452 across 82 games. Ruiz did not fare as well, batting .193/.283/.307 in 53 games.
