Charlie Furbush (biceps) was scratched from his scheduled bullpen session on Saturday.

It isn't believed to be a major setback for the southpaw, but it will push his return to the Mariners back a couple of days. He is still hopeful to return to the M's bullpen before the end of July.

Mariners placed LHP Charlie Furbush on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 8, with left biceps tedinitis.

It's unclear how much time he'll need to miss. Furbush owns a 2.08 ERA and 17/5 K/BB ratio over 21 2/3 innings this season in a left-handed specialist role.
Jul 9 - 5:28 PM

Mariners and LHP Charlie Furbush avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.3 million contract.

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.

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."
