Edit–See below as well. Joe and I published the exact same thing, but he beat me. Sorry Joe!
Milton Bradley has been placed on the restricted list while he undergoes some counseling and what not. He has to stay on it for at least 5 days, but he’ll likely be longer than that. Baker speculates that a week from tomorrow is the earliest we’d see him again. He’s remaining in Seattle, but not traveling or doing anything with the team for now.
Michael Saunders has been called up to take his place. He started the year at Tacoma in a terrible slump, but has been on a tear for the last week or so. He’s been retooling his swing, so hopefully something has clicked now. Most likely, he’ll not play much. I could see him getting a start or two, but he’ll mostly be a back-up/pinch-runner type.
The team hopes Jack Wilson will only be out for a day or two, so they haven’t made a roster move with him. Hope for no injuries to infielders, because there’s no one on the bench to replace them, except at first. If someone got injured, they could send down a pitcher (Sean White!) and bring up Tui again, but hopefully it won’t come to that.
Go Mariners! Tonight is the night to assert your long-awaited dominance!
