Charlie Furbush pitched a scoreless 12th for his first career save Saturday against the Angels.

The Mariners used everyone except Fernando Rodney in Friday's 16-inning loss, so with the rest of the bullpen tired, they went right to him in a tie game in the 10th tonight. Dominic Leone pitched the 11th and stayed in to open the 12th after the Mariners scored twice in the top of the inning, but he was pulled after giving up a leadoff homer to David Freese. Furbush took over then and retired all three batters he faced. It was his first save in 175 career relief appearances.

Charlie Furbush was removed from Monday's game against the Angels in the seventh inning after he was struck by a Mike Trout liner.

It was a stinging shot off his lower leg, but Furbush appears to have escaped without serious injury. He couldn't continue, however, and limped off the field. Consider the reliever day-to-day.

Mariners and LHP Charlie Furbush avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $750,000 contract.

Furbush actually fell short of Super Two status, but it was a near-miss and MLB and the players' union both agreed that he should have an inflated salary in 2014. Furbush, 27, boasts a 3.31 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 10.8 K/9 in 119 appearances since the start of the 2012 season.

Over 19 relief appearances, Charlie Furbush owns a 4.42 ERA in 18 1/3 innings.

The 27-year-old lefthander established himself as a potential bullpen asset in 2012, posting a 2.72 ERA over 48 appearances. In 28 less innings this year, Furbush has given up the same amount of homers (three) and only six less walks (10).

Mariners activated LHP Charlie Furbush from the 15-day disabled list.

Furbush has been out of commission since mid-July, so the Mariners will use him in low-leverage situations initially. The 25-year-old lefthander owns a 2.17 ERA and 0.80 WHIP in 37-plus innings this season.

Charlie Furbush (triceps) will make another rehab appearance with Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday before the Mariners decide if he's ready to return.

They want him to be 100% before returning to the bullpen, and they haven't felt that he's quite ready after his first three appearances. Expect this to be his final tune-up before returning to the M's bullpen after the weekend.

Charlie Furbush (triceps) will make another rehab appearance with Triple-A Tacoma.

Mariners manager Eric Wedge previously indicated that Furbush's second appearance on Monday would be his last one, but he's decided the lefty isn't quite ready. "He feels pretty good. He's just not where he needs to be before he gets back up here," Wedge said. "It's a little bit different when you've got a veteran guy that has been through it or done it before. This is kind of his first go-round with something like this."

Charlie Furbush (triceps) will make his second minor league rehab appearance Monday with Triple-A Tacoma.

Furbush allowed one run on two hits over one inning in his first rehab appearance on Friday, but notched three strikeouts. Mariners manager Eric Wedge said that he should be activated from the DL if all goes well Monday.

Mariners placed LHP Charlie Furbush on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left triceps.

Charlie Furbush (triceps) has declared himself "fine."

Furbush was removed from Tuesday's game against the Royals after just two pitches because of tightness in his left triceps. But he made some additional throws in a cage after exiting and felt no lingering discomfort. He's day-to-day and should avoid the disabled list.

Charlie Furbush has been diagnosed with tightness in his left triceps.

Furbush exited Tuesday night's appearance against the Royals after throwing just two pitches. He'll be re-evaluated Wednesday before the Mariners get a feel for how much time he's likely to miss.

Charlie Furbush left Tuesday's game with an apparent shoulder injury.

Furbush got the lone batter he faced to ground out but then grabbed at his shoulder before walking off the field with the trainer. It would be a big blow if it's a significant injury, as the southpaw boasts a 2.17 ERA and 0.80 WHIP for the year.
Tue, Jul 17, 2012 10:42:00 PM

Charlie Furbush has posted a 1.96 ERA, 0.62 WHIP and 42/7 K/BB ratio over 32 1/3 innings out of the Mariners' bullpen this season.

Furbush didn't even make the Opening Day roster, but he's turned into one of the most effective relievers in the American League to this point. He hasn't given up a run since May 15, and, depending on how creative Ron Washington wants to get with his selections, could get some consideration for the All-Star game.
