SEATTLE —The Seattle Mariners have placed outfielder Mike Carp and reliever
Stephen Pryor on the 15-day disabled list, optioned pitcher Blake Beavan and
infielder Alex Liddi to Triple-A Tacoma and called up four minor leaguers. Kevin Walter Jersey . The Mariners made the
moves on Wednesday prior to their game against the San Diego Padres. Outfielder
Franklin Gutierrez was activated from the 15-day DL after missing all of the
2012 season so far with chest and foot injuries. Seattle also recalled pitcher
Erasmo Ramirez, outfielder Casper Wells and pitcher Steve Delabar from Tacoma.
“Finally, Im back and healthy now,” Gutierrez said. “It feels like the first
time I was called up. Its so exciting to be here again.” Mariners manager Eric
Wedge said Gutierrez will play centre field Thursday. Michael Saunders will
slide over to left when Gutierrez is in centre. Carp was placed on the disabled
list with an swollen right shoulder he first injured in the season opener in
Japan in March. Pryor has a left groin strain. Gutierrez, Wells and Delabar will
be in uniform and available immediately. Ramirez will make the start in the
series finale with the Padres on Thursday night. Wedge said Beavan needed to go
down to Triple-A Tacoma to “finish himself off.” Beavan had a 5.92 ERA in 12
starts this year, and is expected to work on his secondary pitches. Liddi will
have an opportunity to play every day in Tacoma, and become more acclimated to
playing left field. Arian Foster Elite Jersey . The mens soccer
team went to Panama looking to extend its lead atop the CONCACAF qualifying
group, but a lacklustre effort on hostile ground resulted in a 2-0 loss to a far
more energetic opponent. Andre Johnson Jersey . Justin Masterson
handled New Yorks power-packed lineup for 6 2-3 innings and Michael Brantley hit
a three-run homer as the Cleveland Indians snapped a nine-game losing streak
with a 3-1 win over the Yankees on Saturday night. http://www.shopthetexans.com/arian-foster-jersey
. Desriveaux is entering his seventh season in the Canadian Football League. He
played the past six years with the Montreal Alouettes where he amassed 668
rushing yards and two touchdowns. J.J.
Watt Youth Jersey
. One day after receiving a proposal from the
league that commissioner Gary Bettman labelled “meaningful” and “significant,”
the NHL Players Association made it clear Wednesday that it didnt share that
view. Arian Foster Jersey . You can watch Game 3
RIGHT NOW on TSN. The Thunder followed a nice walk in the park in Game 1 of the
set by stealing Game 2 on Wednesday when Durant scored the go-ahead basket with
18.6 seconds left as OKC closed the contest on a 9-0 run to beat the Lakers
77-75.The Monday morning after a hard-fought win in Montreal, boxer  Mary
Spencer was back home and in bed when her phone rang with the good news. The
wait was over. After a month-long delay, she had been chosen by the
International Olympic Committees Tripartite Commission to receive the Americas
lone wild card berth in the 75-kilogram weight class. Spencer would compete in
her first Olympic Games. She fell back asleep with a smile on her face. A few
hours later at a press conference in her hometown of Windsor, Ont., Spencer was
awake—and feeling very much refreshed. “Its like a second chance,” she said.
“It reminds me of when I first started boxing. I felt like I was given a second
chance and I was able to prove myself through boxing. Now I feel like Im in that
position once again. I never expected to be, but I feel like I am and I cant
wait to really make the most of it and a bad situation. “Im very excited to be
representing Canada at the Olympics.” Video: Watch Mary Spencer Give Her
Everything The 511” fighter from Windsor, Ont., was considered the favourite for
Olympic gold before she failed to secure a Games berth at the womens world
championships in May. After receiving a bye through the first round, Spencer
suffered a surprising loss to Swedens Anna Rosalie Laurell in her first bout of
the competition. The rest was a waiting game. The IOCs Tripartite Commission was
able to choose one fighter of each weight category from each continent (with the
exception of Oceania, which received none) to compete at the Games. The decision
was initially expected early this month, but unexplained delays pushed the
announcement to Monday. The uncertainty must have been agonizing for the Olympic
hopeful, but Spencer—once the Olympic favourite, now an underdog—willed
herself to keep focus. “Since we got back the number one thing was getting back
to the gym and training for the Olympics,” she said. “It seems like it could
have been a hard thing to do, but evverything came together very well. Johnathan Joseph Jersey. Weve been practising
for this summer so I havent lost any concentration at all.” Spencer intensified
her focus further in Montreal this past weekend, sweeping a two-fight exhibition
series versus Andrea Strohemeir. She defeated the German in two four-round
bouts. Canadian teammates  Mandy Bujold and Sandra Bizier were not so fortunate
in their own wild card bids. Bujold, of Kitchener, Ont., was up for
consideration in the 51kg category, but learned Monday that the lone berth would
go to Erica Matos of Brazil. Bizier was considered in the 60kg weight class, but
was similarly overlooked. “There are a lot of bittersweet moments in sport and
this is one of them,” Spencer said of the news. The newly-nominated Olympic
boxer is particularly close friends with Bujold. “Its a moment I was hoping to
share with my best friend, but you know what? Shes really strong. Shes tough and
shes going to be training real hard for Rio 2016 so I know shes going to do
great then.” Womens boxing will make its Olympic debut at the London 2012 Games
this summer. The womens competition, including Spencers 75kg weight class, will
kick off on August 5 with the gold-medal matches scheduled for August 9. After
Spencers elimination from the 2012 World Boxing Championships last month,
Irelands four-time world 60kg champion Katie Taylor told the Irish Times it was
important for womens boxing that athletes like Spencer were able to compete at
the Olympic Games. “We need to showcase womens boxing,” she explained. “All I
can say is that I am going to do my absolute best,” Spencer said on Monday. “I
am going to be training my hardest, staying positive, working as hard as I can
when I am out there in those fights.  “I am just going to go all out and
hopefully if anybody can get some inspiration from that, if other boxers can get
inspiration from that but then great. But for me, Im just ready to give it all.”
