Sherrill goes on DL, Furbush recalled and today’s lineup

The Mariners made a roster move before today’s home opener, with lefty reliever George Sherrill going on the 15-day disabled list with an elbow problem and Charlie Furbush getting recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.

That’s a move that shouldn’t be any surprise, given Sherrill’s early troubles this year. He’s been talking about soreness in his elbow since Spring Training started, when he was held back initially and never has been quite right.

Also, Mike Carp starts a rehab stint tonight with Triple-A Tacoma, though the weather is lousy in Fresno and it’s not certain the Rainiers will get there game in today. Carp is coming back from a sprained right shoulder suffered on Opening Day in Tokyo.

Here’s tonight’s home opening lineup vs. the A’s:

9  Chone Figgins (S)      LF
13  Dustin Ackley (L)      2B
51  Ichiro Suzuki (L)      RF
17  Justin Smoak (S)       1B
15  Kyle Seager (L)        3B
63  Jesus Montero          DH
55  Michael Saunders (L)   CF
30  Miguel Olivo           C
26  Brendan Ryan           SS

34  Felix Hernandez        RHP
