Update on Ryan Rowland-Smith, possible moves

Turns out the Mariners will not be making any moves in time for tomorrow’s game. The Mariners pulled Ryan Rowland-Smith from tonight’s scheduled Class AAA start because, in light of Garrett Olson’s first two innings before the rain delay here, it looked like they would need some fresh arms for the Rockies series.
“During the rain delay, I was thinking we might have to blow up the bullpen,” Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu said.
Wakamatsu was going to recall Rowland-Smith for tomorrow had the bullpen needed to throw the final seven innings. Instead, Olson tossed five frames and things were contained.
So, Rowland-Smith will start for Tacoma tomorrow.
As for the catching, Wakamatsu had said pre-game that he didn’t want to take three of them to Colorado. But Rob Johnson is still shaky-looking at best with his injury, so that will probably be what happens.
So, no moves planned at the moment.
