      Taylor's recall won't change Miller's status as M's starting shortstop

      Although Chris Taylor started at shortstop Thursday immediately following his recall from the minors, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Brad Miller will remain the starting shortstop, per "Brad is in a pretty good groove right now," McClendon said. "There's still a lot of room for improvement, but he is improving every day. He has his moments [defensively], but most of the time it's just a mechanical thing where he doesn't move through the ball or he stands straight up. I would say the last 12-15 days, he's been a lot better at that." Taylor will serve as a backup middle infielder and could get some playing time at other positions as well. "It's still a progression, but I'm feeling a lot more comfortable and a lot better [at the plate]," Taylor said. "It was good to go down there and take some of the pressure off. I was able to stop pressing and just worry about going out there and having some fun again. I'm feeling a lot better now and I'm ready to go."

      Mariners promote RP Mayckol Guaipe, demote SS Chris Taylor

      The Mariners have optioned shortstop Chris Taylor to Triple-A Tacoma and promoted right-handed reliever Mayckol Guaipe. Taylor has not earned his stay in Seattle. He has just 10 hits in 63 at-bats with one RBI. The Mariners must hope they haven't mistimed their call-up of Guaipe, who had pitched well until recently. He has allowed six runs on 13 hits in the last 3 2/3 innings.
