Joe Borchard to be Benched with Reed's Return

Former Stanford quarterback Joe Borchard acquitted himself well as he appeared in center field for Jeremy Reed and the Mariners following Reed missing time after slamming into a wall and injuring his wrist last week. A series of tests, however, shows Reed's wrist was not broken, as originally was believed, and he could be back as soon as opening day. That puts a quick end to Borchard's trial as a starter and threatens his status as a reserve.
