Olivo MRI shows strained adductor muscle
The MRI on catcher Miguel Olivo revealed a strained adductor muscle in his groin, as expected, the Mariners announced Monday morning.
Olivo has begun therapy on his injured left leg and will likely be able to do some throwing in the coming days, but the team will proceed cautiously because of the strain catching puts on that particular muscle.
The club said there’s been no timeline set on his return.
Olivo hurt his leg on Saturday when he felt the muscle give way after tagging up at third and running home on a sacrifice fly.
Adam Moore was scheduled to start in Olivo’s place in Monday’s Cactus League game against the A’s, but he was scratched later in the morning because of illness.
Chris Gimenez, a non-roster invitee, will now start today’s game. The other catchers on the roster are Josh Bard and 20-year-old Steven Baron.
