The Seattle Mariners have activated Felix Hernandez from the 10-day disabled list.

He’s missed over a month, in fact, due to a recurrence of bursitis in his right shoulder, having been placed on the disabled list on August 5, retroactive to August 1. The Mariners are 18-20 since then and currently stand three and a half games back for the second Wild Card, with the Angels separating them from the current placeholder Twins.

Hernandez, who is 5-4 with a 4.28 ERA this season in 13 starts, will be limited to around 50 pitches in the outing.
