Mariners | Charlie Furbush adjusted to new role

Mon, 05 May 2014 20:08:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, Seattle Mariners RP Charlie Furbush has been shifted to a reduced role, and manager Lloyd McClendon acknowledged the struggles of the pitcher. "Sure, I'm a little concerned. I'm concerned with his command, concerned with his ability to execute his pitchers," McClendon said Monday, May 5. "We're just going to have to continue to give him touch and feels in the bullpen because regardless of how disappointed I am in how he's going about it lately, he's a big, big part of what we're going to be and our success this year." Furbush is likely to be used against left-handed batters in a situational setting.

Mariners | Charlie Furbush financials

Wed, 18 Dec 2013 08:37:53 -0800

Seattle Mariners RP Charlie Furbush will earn $750,000 next year as part of his one-year deal to avoid a potential dispute over arbitration eligibility. His eligibility is dependent on New York Mets SS Ruben Tejada, who is one day short of three years of major league service. If Tejada wins a grievance and gain a day of service time, Furbush (two years, 121 days) would also become eligible for arbitration.

Mariners | Tom Wilhelmsen won't close for two or three games

Fri, 14 Jun 2013 18:26:39 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Tom Wilhelmsen will not close for at least the next two or three games. The team wants to see him work in non-save situations, working on better location for his pitches. Manager Eric Wedge said Friday, June 14, that the team will mix and match save opportunities, with no specific pitchers mentioned.

Fantasy Tip: Don't drop Wilhelmsen anywhere yet. Eric Wedge seemingly is aiming to get him back into the role; the goal of having the righty work on his pitches says this looks temporary. However, Carter Capps has closer-like skills, and if Wilhelmsen stumbles, Capps could take over. He's the first one you should pick up. Of course, it's stated to be a mix-and-match situation, so other relievers, such as Yoervis Medina and Charlie Furbush (for lefty situations) could be used and net AL-only managers some points, as well. If this problem lingers, maybe Stephen Pryor (lat) will have a say later in the year.

Mariners | Charlie Furbush to stay in bullpen

Wed, 28 Nov 2012 23:19:48 -0800

Although the Seattle Mariners are looking for another starting pitcher, general manager Jack Zduriencik has no plans to move RP Charlie Furbush back to the rotation. "When [Furbush] was acquired, we viewed him as a left-handed reliever in the long run," Zduriencik said. "His delivery and array of pitches lend itself to fitting in that role. He has done well in that role and it's a strong need for any bullpen."
