Charlie Furbush goes on disabled list; Steve Delabar brought back up

Well, so much for that good news we all brought you last night. Turns out that Charlie Furbush is going on to the disabled list after all with a strained left triceps. Furbush went out and threw for 10 minutes today under the supervision of team trainer Rick Griffin.
Afterwards, he went indoors and threw off a mound in a cage. The final two throws, he felt the same twinge as last night. That’s when the decision was made to put him on the 15-day disabled list.
“Everything felt fine and then I tried to amp it up and there it was, I felt it again,” Furbush said. “So, I’ll get is checked out and hopefully be back in two weeks.”
Steve Delabar is coming back up to take his roster spot.


Delabar was sent down to Class AAA yesterday to clear a spot for Blake Beavan. But since yesterday also happened to be Delabar’s birthday and his parents were in town, the team allowed him to remain in Kansas City for the day. He was to have flown out today, but was told by the team to hold off on that just in case Furbush turned out not to be OK after his scare last night.
Since Delabar had yet to report to AAA, he can be re-activated by the Mariners without the mandatory 10-day waiting period players usually have to be put through.
Furbush is to return to Seattle to be checked out by the team’s medical staff.
