This one just came down a few moments ago. Chone Figgins has been activated by the Mariners and will be available to play today. He’s not in the starting lineup, but could enter later on in the contest.
The M’s had considered sending Figgins out to Class AAA Tacoma for a rehabilitation stint. But the Rainiers end their season tomorrow, so that wouldn’t get Figgins much time rehabbing.
Now, he’ll play his way back into game shape at the major league level.
