News: Olmos was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.
Impact: After an ugly start against the A's on Friday in which he allowed five runs (four earned) in 1.1 innings, Olmos was optioned in favor of Danny Farquhar, who was recalled in a subsequent move. The 25-year-old appeared in six games during his brief time with the major league club and started two without much success. That being said, he could find his way back with the Mariners soon.

News: Olmos will start Friday's series-opener against the A's, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Impact: Hisashi Iwakuma was initially slated to take the hill Friday, but the Mariners have opted to shuffle the rotation. It will be Olmos on Friday, followed by Felix Hernandez on Saturday, with Iwakuma being pushed back to Sunday. In his last start Sunday against the White Sox, Olmos allowed five hits, three earned runs and five walks over 5.0 innings.
