Mike Carp called up to the Mariners
With the injury last night to Miguel Olivo the M's are in a bit of a catching dilemna. John Jaso, and Jesus Montero will now run the show, but you don't want to get Montero hurt as he's your best bat right now, so insert Mike Carp into the lineup, most likely at DH.
The team hasn’t announced it yet, but the man himself has: Mike Carp has been reactivated from the disabled list and is joining the Mariners today in Tampa.
Carp tweeted the news this morning, saying he is “happy to be healthy (and) ready to go.”
The outfielder had been on the DL since March 29, after spraining his right shoulder on a diving-catch attempt in the first game of the season in Japan.
The Mariners (11-13) take on the Rays (15-8) at 4:10 p.m. today.
