The Seattle Mariners are on a seven-game losing streak during which they’ve scored 14 runs, and manager Eric Wedge continues pulliing new lineups out of his roster.
But first, that roster changed today: the Mariners recalled right-handed pitcher Shawn Kelley and sent right-handed rookie Erasmo Ramirez to Tacoma, where he's likely to slip into the rotation. Yes, he will be back.
This one may please more fans than most – he’s got John Jaso, Mike Carp, Kyle Seager and Jose Montero in it, and Chone Figgins sitting.
Best of all, he has Felix Hernandez starting.
