Silva on DL

Posted by Larry Stone

The Mariners placed Carlos Silva on the disabled list after the game with triceps tendinitis in his right elbow. That clears a roster spot for Ryan Feierabend to be activated tomorrow for the start. It was, by the way, finally confirmed that Feierabend really is going to make the start, as everyone has known for a few days. He's apparently in town but stayed back at the hotel.

As for Silva, Riggleman said he had felt some elbow pain in his bullpen session two starts ago, but didn't say anthing until after he got shelled yesterday. The plan is to rest Silva and bring him back in September. I suppose it would be nice for him to finish this season with some positive results to take into next year.

"It's something that I think if we were in a different part of the season, or the standings, he would pitch through it,'' Riggleman said.

Of course, if the Mariners were in a different part of the standings, they might not give someone 4-13, 5.93, an opportunity to pitch through anything. (Oops, I was looking at an old stat sheet. Make that 4-14, 6.36).
