The Mariners release their annual funny TV ads

Every year the Mariners release some pretty-clever-for-a-baseball team TV commercials.  This year is no exception.  There are five of them, all of which you can see over at the Seattle Times page.  This one, however, is my favorite because (a) it’s self-aware; and (b) it features both a bald guy and a hairy guy.

White Sox first baseman José Abreu underwent lower abdominal surgery on Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. It was an outpatient procedure that is expected to keep him away from baseball activity for two weeks.

Abreu, 31, was held out of Tuesday’s lineup, his first day off in more than two months. This season, Abreu has hit a productive .272/.331/.491 with 22 home runs and 78 RBI in 526 plate appearances.

The White Sox will likely play Matt Davidson at first base and put Daniel Palka at DH while Abreu is out.
