The Mariners have yet to have an official workout for their 2018 spring training and they are already dealing with an unexpected to injury to a projected player in their starting lineup. Manager Scott Servais confirmed that first baseman Ryon Healy has been bothered by a nagging hand injury and his health status going into spring training is unknown. “I don’t have an update,” manager Scott Servais said. “I know he’s getting some more tests done today and we should know more here shortly what the results of those tests are.” The injury didn’t stem from any particular instance. It was a usage injury that came on during his offseason in workouts. “He had an issue that came up early in the offseason when he first started working out and hitting,” Servais said. “We thought it wasn’t that big of a deal and we shut him down for a while. When he came back after the time off, he felt it again. We’ve ramped it up and had him take some more serious tests to find out what the problem is, but I don’t know exactly what it is.” Servais talked with Healy about the injury. “It’s something he’s never had before,” he said. “It’s a new thing.” Acquired from the A’s in the offseason for reliever Emilio Pagan and minor leaguer Alexander Campos, Healy was slated to be the Mariners’ everyday first baseman. A year ago, he hit .271 with a .753 on-base plus slugging percentage, 29 doubles, 25 home runs and 78 RBI with Oakland.
