The Seattle Mariners acquired first baseman Ryon Healy from the A’s in November. Healy, who has hit .282/.313/.475 with 38 homers in 221 games in Oakland over the past two seasons, is projected to serve as the regular first baseman for the Mariners in 2018.

He won’t be doing it for a while, though. It was reported yesterday that he was undergoing tests on his hand, after he began to experience pain following offseason workouts. The results are back and they’re not good:

Two days into spring training and the M’s are already down a man. Until Healy can come back, it will be either Mike Ford, Daniel Vogelbach, Ben Gamel or some combination of them manning first base.
