REPORT: M's Turned Down Bradley For Furbush

Bradley, Jr. (L); Furbush (R)
UPDATE: Sox say no such deal
According to's Gordon Edes, the Seattle Mariners turned down a trade that would have sent Jackie Bradley, Jr. to The Great Northwest. The prospective trade—which was proffered earlier in the Spring—would have brought lefty reliever (and South Portland, Maine native) Charlie Furbush to Fenway. The 29-year old Furbush holds a 4.05 career ERA over five big league seasons. So far this season, however, he boasts a 1.80 ERA in seventeen appearances for Seattle. No word why the Mariners turned down the trade.
