The Seattle Mariners released struggling

pitcher Aaron Sele on Monday and recalled right-hander Jorge

Campillo from Triple-A Tacoma.

 

Sele was 6-12 with a 5.66 ERA in 21 starts this season. He

lost a career-worst seven straight starts after going 6-5

through June 25.

 

The right-hander pitched for Seattle from 2000-01, going

32-15 in 68 games. He helped the Mariners set an AL record

with 116 wins in 2001.

 

The 35-year-old Sele, who grew up in Poulsbo, Wash., and

pitched in college at Washington State, played for the Angels

from 2002-04 and rejoined the Mariners this spring as a

non-roster invitee. He has also pitched for Boston and Texas

during 12 major league seasons.

 

The 26-year-old Campillo is a former Mexican League

standout who has spent most of this season at Tacoma, going

4-1 with a 2.71 ERA in 12 starts. He allowed 63 hits in 66

1-3 innings with 18 walks and 43 strikeouts.

 

He is scheduled to start for the Mariners on Tuesday night

in Detroit.

 

Campillo made his major league debut on May 21 in his only

appearance with Seattle this season, working one inning

against the San Diego Padres. He joined the Mariners as a

free agent during spring training.

 

 

Now pitching for the New York Yankees.....

He might be useful to have around, say if Moehler struggles. And we could get him for cheap.

No more mediocre starters. I'd rather see Vargas or Olsen get the call if Moehler keeps sucking. Unless the guy has a playoff pedigree, taking him on at this point is useless.

Sele has started 7 postseason games, is 0-6, a 4.46 ERA, and 37 IP. But, to be fair, 5 of the 7 games came against the good Yankee teams in the late 90's/early 00's.

Right, see, that's not a pedigree.

 

Just because he started, does mean he's successful there.
