In case you were wondering why closer Brandon Morrow wasn't used in the top of the ninth last night -- Morrow certainly was -- the Mariners gave an answer today: Morrow has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 24, with right biceps tendinitis. He's eligible to return May 9 (a week from today). Manager Don Wakamatsu called the move "proactive."
Morrow says he's not feeling any pain, which is reassuring, so I'm guessing this is just something the M's are doing to make absolutely certain that he doesn't carry any lingering issues all season long. I suppose now's the time to be ultra-cautious. Get ready for a whole lot of Aardsma!
Denny Stark (yes) is up in his place.
