"Nageotte had an 8/9 K/BB ratio while giving up nine runs -- seven earned -- in 16 1/3 innings for Tacoma. He'll be headed back to the bullpen now after starting games in Triple-A. If the Mariners would let him settle into a role, he might have better luck."
"Borchard hadn't received an at-bat in 12 days, as manager Mike Hargrove made it clear that he preferred Willie Bloomquist as the alternative to Jeremy Reed in center field. Borchard will have to report to Triple-A Tacoma if he clears waivers."
