Can Mariners handle more SP injuries?

The state of the Seattle Mariners pitching staff right now can best be described as being in turmoil. One week ago, starter James Paxton was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained muscle on the left side of his back. After some juggling of the rotation, the team didn't need a replacement for Paxton until Tuesday night, which they filled with Blake Beavan, called up from Triple-A Tacoma.
