Game 39, Mariners At Indians
Fister vs Carmona, 4:05 pm.
The M’s claimed reliever Jeff Gray off waivers from the White Sox today – he’s your standard variety sinker/slider right-hander who throws strikes, gets ground balls, and doesn’t strike anyone out. Not the worst thing to have around, especially since Wedge is apparently allergic to using either Wilhelmsen or Cortes – this might give the team the ability to actually have more than a four man bullpen now.
Also, David Aardsma has opted for rehab instead of surgery. He’ll take a month off, then resume rehabbing. He’s still looking a second half return if he can make it back, and I wouldn’t hold my breath.
