Mariners option Erasmo Ramirez and Blake Beavan to Triple-A Tacoma and recall Hector Noesi and Bobby LaFromboise.
Erasmo Ramirez was a popular pre-season sleeper in deeper leagues coming into the season, but it may look like he will still need some more seasoning after allowing seven runs on six hits, one home run, four walks in the loss to the Red Sox Thursday.

Ramirez will be back up with the Mariners after the break - don't worry. He was sent down so that he could remain on schedule and keep pitching. The next time the Mariners need a fifth starter they will call on Erasmo to take the hill.
