Furbush makes second rehab appearance
BALTIMORE -- Left-handed reliever Charlie Furbush made his second rehab appearance with Triple-A Tacoma on Monday as he returns from a strained left triceps muscle, but will need at least one more outing before he's ready to return to the Mariners, according to manager Eric Wedge.

Furbush will throw again on Wednesday for the Rainiers. He allowed one run on one hit with a walk and strikeout in Tacoma's 9-4 loss to New Orleans on Monday.

"He feels pretty good. He's just not where he needs to be before he gets back up here," Wedge said. "It's a little bit different when you've got a veteran guy that has been through it or done it before. This is kind of his first go-round with something like this."

Furbush, 26, has been one of the Mariners' brighter success stories out of the bullpen this season, posting a 4-2 record and 2.17 ERA in 34 games. He's allowed just two earned runs over his last 24 1/3 innings in 21 games for an 0.74 ERA.
