Silva to DL, Feierabend up
As you can probably tell from the lack of a game thread (sorry!), it looks like everyone is out enjoying the summer weather. After the game, the news is that the Chef has “triceps tendinitis,” so Silva going on the DL is the long-expected roster move that allows Ryan Feierabend to start Sunday.
Remember last year, when Jeff Weaver went on the disabled list because his pitching simply wasn’t cutting it in the majors anymore? Just imagine, what if the Mariners hadn’t done the prudent thing and signed Weaver to a one-year flyer, but instead had given him a multiyear, multimillion-dollar contract based on his reputation and veteran experience? Never mind, no imagination needed now.
