Worth noting

McClendon said Triple-A Tacoma pitcher Erasmo Ramirez will likely get Maurer's rotation spot. Ramirez (1-4, 6.00 ERA) began the year with the Mariners but was demoted in late April after four consecutive rough outings. He made a spot start against the Athletics on May 7, giving up two runs on six hits and a walk in a 2-0 loss. In five starts with the Rainiers, he is 1-3 with a 4.55 ERA.
