Wiki’s on the 15-day DL, and word is he’ll be out at least that long and probably longer. Rene Rivera’s up.
In Tacoma, they’re now running a Ryan Christianson-Bryce Terveen combo, which is interesting at least. Terveen’s a lefty-hitting, righty-throwing catcher the M’s signed as a minor league FA, 27… and that’s about all I know about him.
The Times has the Mariners possibly looking into (repeatedlyCorcoran-endorsed) Benito Santiago, or some other possibilities: Kelly Shoppach in Boston, Pat Borders, Ben Davis (no, really) Todd Greene, Shawn Wooten (no, really), and even Gerald Laird.
The PI offers in return: Pat Borders! Bentio Santiago, Greg Myers, and possibly calling up Ryan Christianson. They also note that any player brought in would require a spot on the 40-man (while Rivera does not). Obvious candidates for clearing that spot would be Aaron Sele and Jeff Nelson.
Bucky had surgery, feels good, will continue rehab. No return date.
