Jeanpierre Returns To Add Depth At Center
Facing a dilemma at the center position following an injury to Max Unger last week, the Seattle Seahawks were fortunate that former backup Lemuel Jeanpierre was still available as a free agent. The Seahawks re-signed Jeanpierre on Tuesday to provide depth at center following a high-ankle sprain suffered by Unger last week against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Halliday Says He Broke Leg, Not AnkleWashington State quarterback Connor Halliday says he broke his leg against Southern California, not his ankle as was widely reported. Halliday, the nation's passing leader, said Thursday that he broke his tibia and fibula when a USC player fell on his leg early in the Nov. 1 game. He says the break was closer to his ankle than his knee. Coach Mike Leach had told the media that Halliday's ankle was broken. Halliday says doctors predict he will be running in three months and should be fully recovered in about five months. He plans to try out for the National Football League, which has long been his dream. Freshman Luke Falk has filled in for Halliday, and will lead the Cougars in this Saturday's game at No. 13 Arizona State. SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) – November 21, 2014
Seattle Claims Olmos Off Waivers From Miami
The Seattle Mariners claimed left-hander Edgar Olmos off waivers from Miami on Thursday and added three others to their 40-man roster. The Mariners selected right-hander Mayckol Guaipe, catcher John Hicks, and infielder Ketel Marte for their major league roster. The Mariners also acquired right-hander Sam Gaviglio from St. Louis in exchange for minor league infielder Ty Kelly. Gaviglio pitched for Double-A Springfield this past season. Olmos, 24, pitched at Double- and Triple-A this year. He appeared in five games for Miami late in the 2013 season. Guaipe, 24, spent the 2014 season at Double-A Jackson and made 40 relief appearances. Hicks, 25, split last season between Jackson and Triple-A Tacoma, hitting .290 with five homers and 47 RBIs in 81 games. Marte, 21, was a Southern League All-Star after hitting .302 at Jackson before a late promotion to Tacoma. Marte was third among all Seattle minor leaguers in batting average and hits.
