Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Charlie Furbush
SEATTLE — When the trade was made that brought Charlie Furbush to Seattle, there wasn’t much background to know if the pitcher could eventually use his long left-handed frame to be a starter.
He was mostly used as a reliever in his time with Detroit, even though the majority of his experience in the minors was as a starter. Seattle has made the commitment for the rest of the season to see if Furbush can fit into its rotation plans.
More performances like Sunday, and he’ll certainly be there.

Would just like to point out that the SEAHAWKS WON their first pre-season game last week. Carry on.
