SEATTLE -- Mired in a slump for the past month, the Seattle Mariners optioned first baseman Dae-Ho Lee to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.Seattle recalled Stefan Romero from Tacoma to take Lees spot on the roster and the Mariners put him in the starting lineup for Friday nights series opener with Milwaukee. Seattle also activated reliever Steve Cishek from the 15-day disabled list and optioned right-hander Joe Wieland to Tacoma.The move with Lee was not a surprise as the slugger has been unable to shake his recent slide thats seen the South Korean star hit .109 with one home run and four RBI in his last 20 games.Its been a pretty significant slide since the All-Star break and trying to get his timing going, Seattle manager Scott Servais said. Confidence-wise hes down. Ive met with him a couple of times. (Hitting coach) Edgar (Martinez) has tried to get some things going, the timing with his swing, just hasnt happened.Lee was a revelation the first half of the season, earning his way into a regular platoon situation at first base as Seattles primary option when facing left-handed pitching. But he injured his hand around the All-Star break and said for a few weeks he was unable to keep up his regular hitting routine outside of games. Servais noted that Lee has been struggling with timing and hoped the decision to send him down will allow Lee the opportunity to rediscover his swing but without the pressure of Seattle being in a playoff race.Lee said his hand is healthy now.It was on and off missing some pitches and a little bit I lost a little confidence of my batting, Lee said through an interpreter.For the season, Lee is batting .246 with 13 home runs and 41 RBI. He has just six hits since the All-Star break and is hitless in his past 14 at-bats.Cishek went on the disabled list on Aug. 4 with a labrum tear in his left hip. The injury did not require surgery and Cishek gives Seattle another right-handed option in the bullpen, but he wont go back to the closer role he had earlier in the year. Cishek was 25 of 31 in save opportunities, but took a blown save and a loss in his last two appearances before landing on the disabled list.Wholesale MLB Jerseys .

Keeler has been saying the Bearkats need to find an extra 10 percent of effort and production to complete what theyve started in the FCS playoffs throughout the decade.The Bearkats must like their start this season after moving up one spot to No. 2 in the STATS FCS Top 25 on Monday. They trailed only unanimous No. 1 North Dakota State, which received 167 first-place votes and 4,175 points, and were just ahead of Jacksonville State, which moved up one spot to No. 3.Sam Houston (2-0) is coming off the 500th win in program history Saturday night, a 44-31 Southland Conference triumph at Lamar to avenge a loss last season. The Bearkats led 30-3 at halftime, defensive end P.J. Hall anchored an effort that kept Lamar All-America running back Kade Harrington out of the end zone and fellow junior Corey Avery proved to be the best running back on the field.I think at times were playing at a really high level, Keeler said. Weve been a little disappointed leaving some points on the field offensively and giving up some big plays defensively. The potential for the offense is through the roof. We have some work to do for us to be as good as we want to be, but it seems to all be coming together in a positive way.With their significant talent and experience, the Bearkats may threaten to go unbeaten in the regular season. But theyre going to measure themselves on the postseason. In the last five years, they have lost in two national championship games and in two other semifinals, including last seasons.Quarterback Jeremiah Briscoe directs their offense, which leads the FCS with 633 yards per game. The Bearkats rank second in passing offense (358.5 yards per game) and third in scoring offense (51.5 points per game).Sam Houstons playoff nemesis has been North Dakota State, which has won the last five FCS titles.
