(6/26/2009) Mariners catcher Kenji Johjima has returned to the team after missing 26 games with a broken toe. The Mariners activated the 33-year-old from the disabled list before Friday night's game at Los Angeles against the Dodgers. It was Johjima's second trip to the DL this season. He missed two weeks in April with a strained hamstring. Seattle designated catcher Jamie Burke for assignment to clear roster room for Johjima. The 37-year-old Burke has had two stints with the Mariners this season. He appeared in 13 games and batted .122 with a home run and one RBI.

Burke called up then goes deep


(6/7/2009) On the same day of his recall, Mariners C Jamie Burke hit a home run in a 4-2 win over the Twins on Sunday. He went 2-for-4 in the contest with the solo shot, striking out once in the game as well.

Mariners recall Burke for C depth


(6/7/2009) The Mariners recalled catcher Jamie Burke from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday and designated reliever Denny Stark for assignment. With Kenji Johjima already on the disabled list with a broken toe and Rob Johnson out with an injured left foot, the Mariners had only one available catcher on the roster in Guillermo Quiroz. Quiroz has played in only two games since being called up from Double-A West Tennessee on May 26. Burke got the start against the Twins on Sunday. Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu said Johnson will be out for a few more days but should be able to return by the end of their series against the Orioles on Thursday. "He was much better today," Wakamatsu said before Sunday's game against the Twins. "He was on crutches yesterday but it's something we think should heal up fairly fast." Johnson fouled a pitch off his left foot on Friday night, but was able to finish the game. Quiroz started for Johnson on Saturday.

Burke passed up for call-up


(5/27/2009) From The Sports Xchange: There were a couple of surprises for the Mariners as they adjusted their catching situation. The first was Kenji Johjima actually has three broken bones in the toe and will be out at least six weeks, with eight weeks more likely. And they didn't go to veteran Jamie Burke at Triple-A Tacoma as most suspected. When Johjima was on the DL earlier in the year with leg problems, Burke was the one who got the call. This time, however, the Mariners promoted Guillermo Quiroz, signed toward the end of spring training when he became a free agent with Baltimore. Manager Don Wakamatsu called Burke, 37, to tell him that he wasn't being promoted, saying the club was going younger. Quiroz is 27. Catcher Jeff Clement, the top pick for Seattle in the 2005 draft, was hitting .448 in his previous 13 games with Tacoma but wasn't considered for the promotion because knee injury problems won't let him play behind the plate yet.

Mariners outright C Burke to minors

Mariners hand out 17 spring invites


(1/15/2009) Reliever Denny Stark is among the 17 non-roster players who received invitations to spring training, the Mariners announced Wednesday.

Besides Stark, right-handed pitchers Eric Hull, Chris Jakubauskas, Shawn Kelley, Luis Munoz, Tracy Thorpe and Sean White, along with left-hander Chris Seddon, will report to camp in Peoria, Ariz., Feb. 13.

Infielders Chris Woodward, Callis Crabbe, Oswaldo Navarro and Chris Shelton, and outfielders Freddy Guzman and Prentice Redman also have been invited to camp.

Mariners give C Burke minor deal


(12/23/2008) The Mariners signed backup catcher Jamie Burke to a minor league contract Tuesday.

Mariners allow Burke to become FA


(12/15/2008) Catcher Jamie Burke became a free agent Friday when the Mariners decided not to offer him a contract for 2009. Teams had to tender contract offers to every player on their 40-man major league rosters who is not already signed for next season by Friday night, or else those players became free agents. Burke, a native of Roseburg, Ore., was originally signed by Seattle as a minor league free agent on Nov. 16, 2006. He appeared in 98 games with Seattle over the past two seasons. In 2007 he made a major league opening day roster for the first time in his professional career, which began in 1993.

Burke catches, pitches in same game


(7/6/2008) Marcus Thames' sacrifice fly off backup catcher Jamie Burke scored pinch runner Michael Hollimon in the top of the 15th in a 2-1 win over the Mariners Sunday. After the two pitching staffs combined to keep both offenses off the scoreboard from the fifth inning on, the game took a comical turn. The Mariners went beyond their second or third option in using Burke, who had been in the game behind the plate since the ninth. Seattle manager Jim Riggleman bypassed using pitchers Arthur Rhodes, Brandon Morrow or Tuesday's scheduled starter, Carlos Silva. Instead, Riggleman went with Burke, who became the third position player in Mariners' history to take the mound. His first pitch was an 82 mph fastball and he reached 86 on the stadium radar gun. But Miguel Cabrera took advantage of the situation, doubling to center field to lead off the 15th. He was lifted for Hollimon, who moved to third when Burke tried to throw a curve ball that ended up in the backstop netting. Thames then lifted a flyball to deep left that easily scored Hollimon with the winning run.

Burke to be Bedard's personal catcher


(5/22/2008) The Sports Xchange reports that Erik Bedard will be teamed with C Jamie Burke for the foreseeable future. In three pairings with Burke, Bedard is 1-0 with a 1.67 ERA. In four games with C Kenji Johjima, Bedard's numbers are 2-2 with a 6.40 ERA. Bedard is next scheduled to pitch Friday in Yankee Stadium.

Burke loses his Bedard-caddy job


(5/13/2008) According to the Sports Xchange notes: C Jamie Burke had caught LHP Erik Bedard in three consecutive starts, but Burke was on the bench Monday when Bedard's catcher was C Kenji Johjima.

Burke struggles in spot start


(5/3/2008) The Sports Xchange notes that Jamie Burke, who had only been in Yankee Stadium as a player for one other series, was behind the plate for Friday night's game in The Bronx. He was in New York last May for a series, but never got onto the field. It wasn't a memorable game for him Friday, as he dropped a foul pop fly for an error and got a walk and a grounder in two at-bats before being lifted for a pinch hitter.
