Carp scratched with stiff right shoulder
CLEVELAND -- Mariners left fielder Mike Carp was a late scratch from Wednesday's series opener against the Indians due to stiffness in his right shoulder that cropped up during pregame work.

Chone Figgins took Carp's place in the lineup.

Carp spent the first four weeks of the season on the disabled list after spraining his shoulder while diving for a ball in the Mariners' season opener against the A's in the Tokyo Dome.

Carp has played in 12 games since his return and is batting .139 with two home runs and five RBIs.

The Mariners said the stiffness in his shoulder was mild and he was available to pinch hit or play in the field in Wednesday's game, if needed.
