GM Jack Zduriencik said Hultzen (shoulder) will miss the entire 2014 season, the Mariners' official site reports.
Just six weeks removed from labrum and rotator cuff surgery, Hultzen has already been ruled out for the entire 2014 season. He only tossed a total of 35.2 innings in 2013, but impressed at Triple-A Tacoma with a 2.05 ERA, 9.98 K/9, and 2.05 BB/9 over six starts. While he's still an excellent prospect, Hultzen has lost a bit of his luster in the wake of this serious shoulder injury. At best, he'll break camp with the Mariners in 2015.
