The Seattle Mariners sent lefty Garrett Olson to the minors this morning, essentially naming their 11-man opening night pitching staff.
With Olson out, there are only 12 pitchers let in camp - including non-roster right-hander Jesus Colome. He's the odd-man out, with his one chance of making the team the Mariners going with 12.
The 2010 opening night pitching staff: starters Felix Hernandez, Ian Snell, Ryan Rowland-Smith, Doug Fister and Jason Vargas, and relievers David Aardsma, Mark Lowe, Brandon League, Sean White, Shawn Kelley, Colome and Kanekoa Texeira.
One question now looming is whether the Mariners go with a 24-man roster while letting lefty Cliff Lee serve his suspension, or put Lee on the disabled list and go with a 25-man team from the outset.
