Via multiple sources, as this was reported hours ago, the Mariners have made several roster moves this morning, despite not making any trades.
- Milton Bradley to the 15-day DL, retroactive to the 27th. Shocking.
- Justin Smoak to Tacoma. While I have previously advocated giving him lots of playing time at the ML level, he has been struggling mightily with the bat since coming to Seattle, and this might be the best thing for him right now. It’ll probably be a 1 month stint, as they give him a little time down there to work on things before the rosters expand in September.
- Sean White, who is terrible.
- Matt Tuiasosopo, who is also terrible, though in a slightly less useless way, as he actually has offensive potential.
I’m really, really sick of seeing Sean White pitch, but other than that, there’s not really much I can complain about here. God this season sucks.
