SEATTLE -- Mired in a slump for the past month, the Seattle Mariners optioned first baseman Dae-Ho Lee to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday. Cheap Miami Heat Jerseys .Seattle recalled Stefan Romero from Tacoma to take Lees spot on the roster and the Mariners put him in the starting lineup for Friday nights series opener with Milwaukee. Seattle also activated reliever Steve Cishek from the 15-day disabled list and optioned right-hander Joe Wieland to Tacoma.The move with Lee was not a surprise as the slugger has been unable to shake his recent slide thats seen the South Korean star hit .109 with one home run and four RBI in his last 20 games.Its been a pretty significant slide since the All-Star break and trying to get his timing going, Seattle manager Scott Servais said. Confidence-wise hes down. Ive met with him a couple of times. (Hitting coach) Edgar (Martinez) has tried to get some things going, the timing with his swing, just hasnt happened.Lee was a revelation the first half of the season, earning his way into a regular platoon situation at first base as Seattles primary option when facing left-handed pitching. But he injured his hand around the All-Star break and said for a few weeks he was unable to keep up his regular hitting routine outside of games. Servais noted that Lee has been struggling with timing and hoped the decision to send him down will allow Lee the opportunity to rediscover his swing but without the pressure of Seattle being in a playoff race.Lee said his hand is healthy now.It was on and off missing some pitches and a little bit I lost a little confidence of my batting, Lee said through an interpreter.For the season, Lee is batting .246 with 13 home runs and 41 RBI. He has just six hits since the All-Star break and is hitless in his past 14 at-bats.Cishek went on the disabled list on Aug. 4 with a labrum tear in his left hip. The injury did not require surgery and Cishek gives Seattle another right-handed option in the bullpen, but he wont go back to the closer role he had earlier in the year. Cishek was 25 of 31 in save opportunities, but took a blown save and a loss in his last two appearances before landing on the disabled list. Cheap NBA Jerseys .

HOUSTON -- Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby says he is confident the conferences university presidents will make progress on their exploration of expansion by the time they meet in mid-October.But Bowlsby, speaking before the game between No. 3 Oklahoma and No. 15 Houston at NRG Stadium, had little to say about where the Big 12 stands as it considers adding schools to the 10-team league. Houston is among the schools being considered by the Big 12.A person with direct knowledge of the situation told the AP on Friday the Big 12 had narrowed its candidates to 11 and meetings with those schools would be held next week. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the conference is not making its work on expansion public.Bowlsby would not confirm those meetings. The Big 12 announced in July the presidents and chancellors had given Bowlsby the go-ahead to start gathering information on potential candidates for expansion. The conference has said it will consider adding two or four teams, but has not committed to expanding.I dont have a vote, Bowlsby said. Thats at the behest of the presidents and chancellors.

He declined to say if Houston officials would be meeting with Big 12 officials.I dont know that it feels like an audition, but Im glad weve got this opportunity today, Yurachek said.Yurachek noted that when the school gave Cougars coach Tom Herman a new contract that paid him $3 million per year after last season, the deal also included a one-time $5 million bonus if Houston joins a Power Five conference while he is coach.
