PEORIA, Ariz. Durham Smythe Jersey . -- Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said Saturday it would be "hard pressed" for either Hisashi Iwakuma or Taijuan Walker to be in the Mariners rotation on opening day because of their injury setbacks during spring training. McClendon said the injuries to Iwakuma (finger) and Walker (shoulder) will open up chances for others in camp, but also leave a rotation that had questions entering spring training even more uncertain. "I always plan for the worst and our contingency plan has been that," McClendon said. "So like I said before this gives other guys opportunities to go out and see what they can do. Well see what happens." Iwakuma will have his right middle finger in a splint for another three weeks before throwing, while Walker is being shut down for a week because of inflammation in his right shoulder. By the time the duo make up for missed time on the mound it will be early- to mid-April before either is expected in a game. While Seattle is understandably cautious with the sore shoulder of the 21-year-old Walker because of his age, the finger injury has become frustrating for Iwakuma. When he went to see Dr. Don Sheridan on Friday, Iwakuma had the expectation that he could start throwing on Saturday. Instead, he was told to avoid throwing for three more weeks. The earliest Iwakuma is expected to pick up a ball is March 21. By the time he gets caught up on bullpen sessions and simulated games to get the needed innings to be ready for the season, itll likely be mid-April before he could join the Mariners rotation. "I was honestly disappointed and frustrated too at the same time, but you have to respect what the doctor says," Iwakuma said through an interpreter Saturday morning. "I was ready to play catch today so it is what it is and I have to wait three more weeks." Iwakuma went 14-6 with a 2.66 ERA in 33 starts last season and was a finalist for the AL Cy Young Award. Iwakuma reported for spring training wearing the splint and said his finger got caught as he tried to retrieve a ball in some netting while working out in Southern California on Jan. 20. McClendon also confirmed -- not surprisingly -- that Felix Hernandez is expected to be Seattles opening day starter when the Mariners open the season on March 31 against the Angels. "Unless youve got somebody else," McClendon joked. "Ill try and see if he can go opening day, the second day and the third day." Mike Gesicki Jersey .

Never got sick or hurt while frolicking in the fields of Claiborne Farm in Paris, Ky. http://www.dolphinsrookiestore.com/Dolph...ki-Jersey/ . Phoenix got injured centre Emeka Okafor and a top-12-protected first-round draft pick in 2014 -- giving the rebuilding Suns potentially four choices in the opening round. The Suns also sent guards Kendall Marshall, Shannon Brown and Malcolm Lee to Washington so the deal will work financially.Davidson, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Davidson showed Tuesday its high-powered offense can light up the scoreboard against stingy defenses too. Peyton Aldridge hit four of the Davidsons 12 3-pointers and the Wildcats snapped Daytons eight-game wining streak and handed the 22nd-ranked Flyers their first A-10 loss in a 77-60 drubbing at Belk Arena. Davidson (13-4, 4-2 A-10) did not hit its season average of 82.4 points, but only because it took its foot off the gas after building a healthy lead. Aldridge finished with 22 points, Tyler Kalinoski chipped in with 21 and Jordan Barham, who started in place of an injured Jack Gibbs, added eight. Jordan Sibert and Kendall Pollard carried Dayton (15-3, 5-1) with 23 points apiece, but the Flyers committed 16 turnovers and for the first time all season had no answers on the defensive end. Davidson essentially led wire-to-wire, building a 23-13 lead about seven minutes in after an Aldridge 3-pointer cappped a 10-1 run. Danny Amendola Dolphins Jersey. Sibert kept the Flyers close for a brief period, as his three-point play cut the deficit to 28-25 near the midway point, but the Wildcats were too much from long range. Oskar Michelsen hit one of his three first-half 3-pointers for a 40-27 cushion, and it was a 45-33 difference at the break. Opponents were scoring just 58.1 points against the Flyers coming in, and the Wildcats hit that mark with over 13 minutes to play. The margin was double-digits the entire second half, and an Aldridge triple fittingly gave Davidson its biggest lead at 64-47 just inside nine minutes left. Game Notes Michelsen scored 11 points ... Davidson improved to 9-1 at home ... Dayton was averaging 73.5 points during its eight-game winning streak ... Dayton was seeking its first 6-0 start to league play since the 2003-04 season ... These programs were meeting for the first time since 1973.
