Rudy Owens is getting the call to start in tonight's game against the Mariners in Seattle after Brad Peacock was scratched for forearm soreness.

Based on what manager Bo Porter is saying, this is a precautionary measure for Peacock:

In has previous start versus Nasvhille, he gave up 8 runs in only three innings pitched. Rudy has given up earned 17 runs on 33 hits over his last four starts in AAA. The lefty takes the hill tonight opposite Felix Hernandez at 9:10 pm CT.

In making room for Owens on the roster, Josh Zeid was sent down to Oklahoma City. TCB will have more on what we can expect from Rudy Owens coming up later.
