Among the news in today's As The Mariners Turn, Ian Snell is out of the Seattle rotation and Luke French is in, with Snell making his second venture into the bullpen this season.
French was the obvious option for manager Don Wakamatsu, since he'd been starting in Tacoma and had pitched more than five innings in relief in Texas.
Other news: Doug Fister has responded to a different medication and, two days after he didn't feel good playing catch he felt a major difference today.
"I don't know that he'll make his start in St. Louis when he's eligible to come off the disabled list - he may need a bit more time - but he's finally feeling good again," Wakamatsu said. "He'll probably need to throw two bullpens before he's ready."
