Mariners rotation doesn't include Lee

Posted: Updated:

PEORIA, Ariz. - The Seattle Mariners are planning to start the season with Felix Hernandez, Ian Snell, Ryan Rowland-Smith, Doug Fister and Jason Vargas in the rotation, manager Don Wakamatsu says.

That's with left-hander Cliff Lee still trying to come back from a strained abdomen. The 2008 AL Cy Young award winner was scheduled to throw later Wednesday for the first time since the team shut him down for five days to rest his abdomen. The session will help determine if he will begin the season on the disabled list.

Wakamatsu also says left-hander Luke French will be optioned to Triple-A later Wednesday, and that backup infielder Jack Hannahan does not need surgery on his strained groin. He will rejoin the club for rehabilitation.
