Charlie Furbush is scheduled to be re-examined after experiencing renewed biceps soreness after a bullpen session on Saturday.

Jul 23 - 11:24 AM

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

Jan 16 - 2:56 PM

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.
