With the injury last night to Miguel Olivo the M's are in a bit of a catching dilemna. John Jaso, and Jesus Montero will now run the show, but you don't want to get Montero hurt as he's your best bat right now, so insert Mike Carp into the lineup, most likely at DH.

The team hasn’t announced it yet, but the man himself has: Mike Carp has been reactivated from the disabled list and is joining the Mariners today in Tampa.

Carp tweeted the news this morning, saying he is “happy to be healthy (and) ready to go.”

The outfielder had been on the DL since March 29, after spraining his right shoulder on a diving-catch attempt in the first game of the season in Japan.

The Mariners (11-13) take on the Rays (15-8) at 4:10 p.m. today.

Painting the Black: Jesus Montero Against Matt Moore by R.J. Anderson

There are downsides to having a primary team, like developing tunnel vision to the other divisions. The Yankees guaranteed Jesus Montero would make fewer trips to Tropicana Field when they traded him to the Mariners. With only seven scheduled visits on the season, Montero demands attention when he plays at the Trop. This isn’t my first tango with Jesus, though my strongest memory...
