Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. It appears that last night’s coincidental sitting out of Jeff Clement and Wlad Balentien in the Rainiers was more than just that.
Yes, that’s right the Seattle Mariners are making a move with the roster because Brad Wilkerson’s locker has been cleaned out of the visitors clubhouse. The name plate is gone and no remnants of him are around. That means at least one player could be coming, but rumor around the stadium is that it’s two players, both Clement and Wlad. We have received no official word yet. But Wilkerson is gone and most likely designated for assingment.
Here’s how you could work it, Wlad could come in and start tonight in right because Cleveland is starting lefty Cliff Lee.
Clement could go tomorrow against the right-hander the Indians are sending out.
Still if they add two guys, that means another spot must be opened up. That could either come by designating another player for assignment, or placing player on the disabled list.
