Morrow, Reed sent down

Just got back from the clubhouse, and as expected, the Mariners had a couple of roster moves to announce. Brandon Morrow was optioned to Class AA West Tennessee, where the Mariners hope he will re-discover his command so they can bring him back to the majors. They chose Tennessee over Tacoma because of the better weather. McLaren said he expected Morrow back “fairly soon.” Morrow had already boarded the bus, so the media didn’t get to talk to him. Given the way Morrow has been pitching since his shoulder troubles, it’s a logical move.
Reed, meanwhile, was optioned to AAA Tacoma, and you have to wonder about his future in the organization. I’m sure they are still trying to trade him.
No one said it officially, but Mike Morse is virtually assured of a roster spot. He had three more hits in the Mariners’ 10-2 win to raise his average to .508. The only question now is whether they go with six or seven relievers.
Have to go now. A deadline awaits for the paper.
