Congratulations to Jason Vargas….
Pitcher of the Month for July!!!
~ Charlie Furbush is making progress coming back from a strained tri-cep muscle. He should be making a AAA appearance or two soon and hopefully be back in the M’s bullpen shortly after.
~ Guti continues to have issues since his was hit by the wild pick-off throw back in late June (I remember it because while Felix was throwing an absolute GEM at Safeco Field vs. the Red Sox, I was at Cheney Stadium watching Danny Hultzen’s AAA Tacoma debut vs. Jamie Moyer and the Las Vegas 51’s). Anyway, apparently Guti has been experiencing headaches but they seem unrelated to the concussion and may stem from an inner ear issue. No timetable has been set for his return.
SEVEN in-a-row and 14-6 since the All Star Break – gotta start sometime, somewhere…
and lookie here…
Felix + Vargas + Beavan = 11-0 in July
first time since 2001 that three Mariners starters combined for at least ten wins with no losses in one month. Can you say right track?!?
