1. Moore was taken off the DL and optioned to Tacoma.
2. Sherrill is on the DL, and Furbush was promoted from Tacoma.
3. Everyone knows the Mariners have two outfielders on the DL, but the Rainiers also have three outfielders on the DL. Fortunately the Mariners came into the year with excess outfielders, but that excess is now gone. Carlos Peguero, MIke Wilson, and the Rainiers bench outfielder, Darren Ford is also on the DL. Chic-Hsien Chiang has been promoted from AA and is doing very well since his promotion.
4. Last, but far from least is the news that Carp is now DH'ing for the Rainiers. He joined the team yesterday in Fresno, but hasn't played in the field yet.
5. The big surprise for the Rainiers is Scott Savastano. Originally the bench infielder, he is now playing regularly and has an OPS of .794 going into tonight's game.
6. PS, from what I heard in the pregame show today it looks like Gutierrez will probably go to Peoria before he begins his rehab in the minor leagues. He only has 20 days on the rehab list and the Mariners don't want to promote him to the MLB team before he is ready. Option B would be to keep with with the Mariners and workout during BP.
