The Mariners Saturday recalled RHP Danny Farquhar from AAA Tacoma to fill the roster vacancy left by RHP Mayckol Guaipe, who was optioned to the Rainiers following Friday night’s 15-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Farquhar was available to the Mariners Saturday as they met the Red Sox.
Farquhar, 28, has made 25 appearances in three stints with Seattle this season, posting an 0-3 record with a 6.23 ERA in 30.1 innings. In 22 appearances with Tacoma, he is 1-1, 3.62 ERA. In his most recent stint in the Pacific Coast League, he appeared in 10 games with a 2.13 ERA and 13 strikeouts.
Farquhar made his last appearance Thursday against Sacramento, recording a pair of strikeouts in a perfect inning. He has allowed only one run over his last five appearances while recording 10 strikeouts.
Guaipe, 25, is 0-3 with a 7.50 ERA (10 ER, 12.0 IP) in eight appearances with the Mariners this season. Guaipe allowed three earned runs in 1.2 innings Friday night.
According to Elias Sports Bureau, the Mariners are the first team since the 1905 Red Sox to allow as many as 15 runs in a game immediately following a no-hitter. Hisashi Iwakuma tossed the no-no Wednesday against Baltimore, the Mariners had Thursday off, and then were obliterated Friday.
Felix Hernandez (14-6, 3.11) pitches for Seattle opposite LHP Wade Miley (8-9, 4.68).
