The Mariners finally made the move everyone knew was coming official. Chris Shelton has been added as an extra bat by the team. Jason Vargas will head down to Class AAA Tacoma in his place.
Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik explained the move.

A look, above, at Vargas working out on the field moments ago. He’d been told this move was coming a while ago.
“With the All-Star break beginning Monday, we will not need a fifth starter until July 25,” Zduriencik said in a release. “Optioning Jason to Tacoma and getting Shelton up here allows us to keep Vargas pitching on schedule and add a bat to our ballclub.”
