The Seattle Mariners open their four-game series in Kansas City with an improbable designated hitter - one Adam Thomas Kennedy, who came to spring training hoping to catch on as a reserve infielder.
Jack Cust, the man signed to hit fourth and play DH, isn't hitting. Manager Eric Wedge had other options - DH Milton Bradley, get Ryan Langerhans in the game ...
Hard to imagine Kennedy in many starting lineups. And how many would him cleanup? Well, this one.
Never miss a local story.
