Carlos Silva will pitch an inning or so of relief today – his first since April – but he’s going to be a Frog, not a Rainier.

The Mariners are sending Silva to Everett, not Tacoma, in part because they don’t want to jeopardize the Rainiers run for the post-season.

“In Everett, we can control the situation a little better,” manager Don Wakamatsu said. “Carlos will throw an inning, then Thursday throw again – maybe in Tacoma, maybe in Everett – and then one last time on Sunday.”

Then, it’s back to the Seattle bullpen for September.
