Blake Beavan to start Sunday for Mariners

There was a pretty short list of guys who could have started for the Mariners tomorrow once manager Eric Wedge confirmed it would be a pitcher not on the current roster. It would be either lefty Luke French or righty Blake Beavan.
Well, now we know. It’ll be Beavan.


Beavan is one of the three minor leaguers acquired last summer in the Cliff Lee trade. The team will add him tomorrow, then make a corresponding move. Catcher Jose Yepez is the likely candidate to go. He’ll have to clear waivers first, but should be able to.
As for Beavan, this could be interesting. He’ll likely get a couple of starts and allow the team to evaluate where he’s at.
Might come in handy if the team decides to trade a starter this month. At least the M’s will be a tad closer to knowing what they have in reserve.
