Mariners make a bunch of moves today, involving 13 players. Here's the rundown.
- LHP David Rollins - claimed off waivers by the Cubs
- INF/OF Stefen Romero - granted his release to play in Japan
- INF/OF Taylor Motter - acquired from Tampa Bay
- INF/OF Richie Shaffer - acquired from Tampa Bay
- INF Dalton Kelly - traded to Tampa Bay
- RHP Andrew Kittredge - traded to Tampa Bay
- RHP Dylan Thompson - traded to Tampa Bay
- LHP James Pazos - acquired from NY Yankees
- RHP Zack Littell - traded to NY Yankees
- LHP Paul Fry - added to 40-man roster
- INF D.J. Peterson - added to 40-man roster
- RHP Thyago Vieria - added to 40-man roster
- RHP Tom Wilhelmsen - designated for assignment
Yes, a bunch of moves! The 40-man roster is currently filled.
Only three of them were contributors to the big club. Wilhelmsen's cut may have to do with his salary arbitration number, as pointed out by a few local reporters. He's scheduled for a 3.8 million in arbitration. That's probably more than the M's were willing to spend.
