Mariners make roster moves

The Mariners have made a few of roster moves,including putting catcher Kenji Johjima on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

Veteran backup catcher Jamie Burke was promoted from Triple-A Tacoma to replace Johjima. Also, the Mariners sent third baseman Matt Tuiasosopo to Tacoma and promoted right-handed reliever Sean White from the Triple-A club. An opening in the bullpen was created on Wednesday when left-handed starter Ryan Rowland-Smith went on the 15-day DL with triceps tendinitis.

    you need to get your facts straight! They did not call up Burke to replace Kenji. Johnson is replacing him, as he should! Rob’s defense is better then both Burke and Clement!! Its about time Rob is getting his chance….and he will make the most of it! Not only that but Rob is swinging the stick really well right now. GO ROB!!!
