Update: Carter to be joined by Jeff Larish

Greetings from Seattle:

From what I’m hearing, we may be seeing not just one, but two, new faces in green and gold come tomorrow. Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle recently reported via Twitter that Chris Carter is for sure on his way to Seattle on Monday and that Jeff Larish may be on Carter’s flight. I was just informed by a source that Larish was indeed told he’s joining the big league club tomorrow, so that makes two confirmed call-ups.

Larish was claimed off waivers by the Tigers on Tuesday and essentially tore up the PCL during his week-long stint with Sacramento, where he was hitting .417 with four homers and 15 RBIs in 24 at-bats. He plays first base, and that’s where I’m assuming he’ll be in Barton’s stead. The extent of Barton’s injury is unknown, and normally he’s one to shake things off and continue playing, but spasms anywhere are always weird and unpredictable.

The 27-year-old Larish  — originally selected by the Tigers in the fifth round
of the 2005 Draft — was named Detroit’s Minor League
Player of the Year in ’07 after leading the Eastern League with 28 home
runs and 101 RBIs, and he was rated as possessing the best power in the
International League by Baseball America in ’08. He made his big league
debut that season, batting .260 with two homers in 42 games.

Should be an interesting day tomorrow…

I am all for Chris Carter coming up. It is about time. But, two first baseman for Barton and he says he is fine. We NEED outfielders who can hit for goodness sakes and if not then we need outfielders who can field their position. Get Buck back up and let him play until he gets hurt again. Hopefully CoJack is back soon and we can finally stop this Matt experience. I’m sure we all remember the dive by Carson that led to our demise against Chicago. I sure hope Sweeney comes back strong after the knee surgery. A quick not off the subject, I love Landon Powell but boy does he clog up the bases. That’s worse than watching Benji Molina run. Haha
