Mariners send Davis to Triple-A Tacoma

Postby WebHamster » Fri May 07, 2004 12:00 am

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - The Seattle Mariners Thursday optioned struggling catcher Ben Davis to Triple-A Tacoma.

The 27-year-old Davis was batting .091 (3-for-33) with no extra-base hits and just two runs batted in through 14 games this season. Davis, who had six home runs and 42 RBI in 80 games in 2003, also struggled this past spring training by going just 2-for-35.

Seattle manager Bob Melvin said that the problems with Davis were more mental than physical or mechanical. In addition to slumping at the plate, Davis was not getting much playing time behind starter Dan Wilson, who is hitting .306 this season.

To fill Davis' roster spot, the Mariners called up Pat Borders from Tacoma. The 40-year-old Borders, who is in his 22nd season of professional baseball, was hitting only .233 with two homers and four RBI in 14 games in the minors.

The 1992 World Series MVP with Toronto, Borders has appeared in 21 games for Seattle in parts of the past three seasons.
