Seattle Mariners Roster Report 2009-05-01


Seattle Mariners Roster Report 2009-05-01
INF Chris Burke, acquired by the Mariners during spring training from San Diego, was traded back to the Padres last week when San Diego needed infield help because of injuries. Burke had been playing for Class AAA Tacoma.

PLAYER NEWS:

--C Kenji Johjima (hamstring) was scheduled to leave the Mariners' minor league complex in Peoria, Ariz., and fly to Seattle, where he will join the Mariners. He's expected to be activated from the disabled list before the series opener against Oakland in Seattle.

--INF Ronny Cedeno, who hasn't played in a game since the weekend, could be ready to go Friday against Oakland. He's had a minor hamstring injury, and while the Mariners didn't see the need for him to go on the disabled list, they wanted to make sure his legs were sound before using him in a game.

--LHP Ryan Rowland-Smith, on the disabled list with left triceps tendinitis, took Thursday off from throwing. He's expected to throw before all three games this weekend, then the Mariners will make a decision about having him throw some bullpen sessions before getting him into games.

--RHP Roy Corcoran has a strained neck, so the Mariners placed him on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to Wednesday. In eight appearances covering 8 2/3 innings, Corcoran has a 7.27 ERA, due in part to nine walks.

--LHP Jason Vargas will be promoted from Class AAA Tacoma on Friday, giving the Mariners a southpaw in the bullpen for the first time this year. In four starts for Tacoma, Vargas was 1-1 with a 2.49 ERA, but Seattle plans to use him in relief.
