The Mariners did some pitching staff shuffling Friday when Hector Noesi and Bobby LaFromboise were recalled from Tacoma and Blake Beavan was sent to the Rainiers. Thursday’s starter, Erasmo Ramirez, was sent to short-A Everett. That will allow him to make his next start on regular rest over the All-Star break and give the Mariners a chance to recall him right after the break, too.
Beavan will join the Rainiers’ rotation.
Noesi and LaFromboise will pitch out of the Mariners’ bullpen, which has been busy the last three games since the Red Sox clobbered Seattle starters.
More to come once the clubhouse opens and we get a chance to speak with manager Eric Wedge.
UPDATE: Wedge said that they are keeping Ramirez on his regular work schedule and that he will back with the team after the All-Star break.
