Mariners activated C Jesus Sucre from the 60-day disabled list.

Sucre underwent surgery to repair a fractured fibula back in January. Now recovered from the offseason injury, he will take on a backup role behind starter Chris Iannetta. In 127 at-bats last season, the 28-year-old backstop hit just .157/.195/.228. There is no fantasy intrigue here.

Jesus Sucre will miss six months after undergoing surgery to repair a broken fibula.

Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that Jesus Sucre sustained a broken fibula while playing in the Venezuelan Winter League.

A full exam is scheduled to confirm the diagnosis on Monday. The injury will obviously end his winter league season as he's expected to be sidelined for the next six weeks. While he'll be behind in spring training, there's a chance that he could still be ready for the start of the regular season.

Jesus Sucre (hip) has declared himself ready for Cactus League action.

"I feel a lot better," Sucre said Wednesday. "I practiced yesterday and I think I'm ready to go. I still feel it a little bit, but it's OK." Sucre missed a couple games due to a small hip injury, but it's nothing that should keep him out during the regular season.

Jesus Sucre (hip) could return to action as soon as Wednesday.

Sucre tweaked his hip during Sunday's Cactus League game and will miss his second straight day of action Tuesday, but it's not a long-term concern. The 26-year-old is currently competing for the Mariners' backup catcher gig.
