Aaron Harang vs. Dan Straily

OH GOD CAREFUL, NOT SO HARD

Well, well, well...

It looks like Franklin Gutierrez is back in the lineup for tonight's game against the Athletics, and the Mariners have placed Michael Morse on the 15-day DL to make room in the clubhouse. Apparently he's feeling better after treatment for breaking everywhere having an "arthritis-like blood condition". Oh, Guti. Will it ever end?

I'm a little surprised this move didn't send Michael Saunders down to Tacoma, which is now down two outfielders with Guti back up and Thames gone for good. Then again, the non-waiver trade deadline is a little over a month away, and Guti hasn't played a game in a Mariners uniform since April 22nd. Make of that what you will.

In other news, John Jaso is still out of the A's lineup with what is being called a "palm abrasion." When asked about how he was feeling, he replied, "I'm not Wolverine," which is exactly what he would say if he actually was.
