The Mariners announced they will pitch right-handed reliever David Pauley on Friday night in place of the traded Cliff Lee. It was thought that they might call up prospect Michael Pineda, which would be counter to the go-slow approach they've had with Pineda (10-1, 2.25 between Double-A and Triple-A).
They might yet call up Pineda, who is starting for Triple-A Tacoma on Friday. Pauley has pitched in 12 major league games, nine with Boston and three this season with Seattle. This will be his first start for the Mariners.
