Mariners place LHP Charlie Furbush on DL, recall RHP Steve Delabar


KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jack Zduriencik announced today that the club has placed left-handed reliever Charlie Furbush on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left triceps muscle. To take his place on the 25-man roster, right-handed reliever Steve Delabar has been recalled from AAA Tacoma.

Since Delabar is replacing a player who has been placed on the disabled list, he does not have to wait a minimum of 10 days in the minor leagues before being recalled.

Delabar (#35) will be in uniform and available for tonight’s game at Kansas City (5:10 pm PT/7:10 pm CT).

Furbush, 26, left last night’s game after retiring the only batter he faced in the seventh inning.

Furbush had been 4-2, 2.17 ERA (9 ER, 37.1 IP) with 47 strikeouts in 34 relief appearances with the Mariners. He has held left-handed hitters to a .155 (9x58) batting average with 27 strikeouts. Since May 1 has a 1.15 ERA (4 ER, 31.1 IP) with 39 strikeouts including a 22.2 consecutive scoreless streak May 17-June 30.

Delabar, 28, was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma yesterday and has gone 2-1 with a 4.18 ERA (15 ER, 32.1 IP) in 30 appearances over three prior stints with the Mariners (March 28-May 30, June 13-16, June 29-July 16). He has recorded 44 strikeouts for a 12.25 K/9.0 IP ratio, while also allowing 8 home runs. With Tacoma this season he has gone 0-1 with a 3.75 ERA (5 ER, 12.0 IP) in 9 appearances.
