Charlton is using the Mariners' annual Fantasy Camp this week to have some fun as a camp instructor, and also to test his left shoulder, which has undergone three surgeries -- two since he last threw a competitive pitch.
Charlton's best seasons arguably occurred in 1990 when he went 12-9 with a 2.74 ERA in 56 appearances with the Reds and the second half of the 1995 season, after the Mariners signed him following his release from the Phillies.
