Move Of The Day: Jake Woods Is A Mariner Again

In need of relief help to fill the hole left by Arthur Rhodes, the Seattle Mariners have brought up left-hander Jake Woods - and no one was more surprised than Woods.

"I got the call at 9:30 a.m., and when your minor league manager calls you, it's one of three things - you're either going up, being released or being traded," Woods said. "It's never that you're being asked to breakfast."

Woods had pitched well for the Rainiers, going 6-1 with a save and a 4.08 ERA in 32 appearances.

Woods has spent parts of three seasons in the majors and, at age 26, will be the Mariners long reliever.
