Mariners shortstop Jack Wilson put on DL

SEATTLE -- The Mariners made several changes on Monday not related to the dismissal of manager Don Wakamatsu and three coaches.

Shortstop Jack Wilson was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a fracture right hand sustained in a freak accident at home, and was replaced on the 25-man roster by infielder Chris Woodward. Also, right-handed pitcher Shawn Kelley returned from a rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma.

Wilson, who has been playing superbly, fractured the fifth metacarpal on his right hand early Sunday morning. He was batting .249 overall but 5-for-16 during the current homestand.

This is his second stint on the DL, the first time from May 6-June 22 with a right hamstring strain.

Wilson will have surgery on Wednesday in Seattle and be sidelined for up to six weeks.

Kelley, sidelined with a sore right elbow, is awaiting word on whether he will need a second ligament replacement surgery.

Woodward, 34, was batting .232 with 17 doubles, six home runs and 35 RBIs in 103 games with Tacoma.
