Mariners activate LHP Charlie Furbush from DL

The Seattle Mariners have activated left-hander Charlie Furbush

from the 15-day disabled list and optioned reliever Shawn Kelley to

Triple-A Tacoma.

The team announced the moves Friday night before playing the

Minnesota Twins.

Furbush had been on the DL since July 18 with a strained left

triceps. He was hurt the previous day in Kansas City when he

retired the only batter he faced. He is 4-2 with a 2.17 ERA and has

been one of Seattle’s most effective relievers this season.

Furbush made five rehab appearances with Tacoma, posting a 6.00

ERA with seven strikeouts.

The 28-year-old Kelley is 2-3 with a 3.41 ERA in 36 relief

appearances for the Mariners this season.
