The Mariners are looking at Jarrod Washburn again

Mar 25, 2010, 10:55 AM EDT

Jon Heyman tweets that Cliff Lee probably won’t be back until Week 3 of the season and that, because of that, the Mariners are “seriously considering” bringing Jarrod Washburn back.

Washburn, it has been reported, turned down a $5 million offer from the Twins this winter. Which suggests to me that he’s either (a) delusional; or (b) not all that interested in pitching anymore. He’s said as much.

Between Lee’s injury, bangs and bruises to Doug Fister and Garrett Olson and the uncertainty of Erik Bedard’s timetable, the M’s could probably use Washburn.  So c’mon, kids: quite all the flirting and hook up already.

    Washburn’s a Boras client, right? If so, then we’ve got to take these Heyman tweets with a huge grain of salt…

    ‘Quit’ or ‘quiet,’ either works.

    I’m starting to get that M’s 2008 season feeling all over again.
