Olivo won't return to Mariners on road trip
NEW YORK -- Catcher Miguel Olivo remained behind in Seattle to work on his strained right groin muscle and won't come off the 15-day disabled list until sometime after the current 10-game road trip ends, manager Eric Wedge said Friday.

Olivo is eligible to return by Wednesday, but Wedge indicated he likely won't begin a Minor League rehab assignment until the club gets home on May 21.

"He'll probably go down to [Triple-A] Tacoma, catch a bullpen or two and get a little work there," Wedge said. "We'll just keep taking it day by day as we work through it. More than likely, we'll run through this road trip, take a first-hand look at him when we get back and then get him out on a rehab [assignment]. But there's always a chance he might fly through things and we can get him out earlier than that."

Olivo originally felt he might miss considerable time when he went down with the injury on April 30 at Tampa Bay, but he's been able to begin running, throwing, hitting in the cage and even blocking balls in drills in recent days.

"He's come back pretty quick," Wedge said. "He's done a little bit of everything, albeit short -- not a great sample size."
