Mariners To Release Sexson

Kirby Arnold of the Everett Herald is reporting that the Mariners will release Richie Sexson, and it could happen in the next week.

According to one person familiar with moves that are planned, Sexson will be let go, possibly within days. The timing is not set because the team is dealing with other personnel issues that go beyond the procedures for moving Sexson.

Sexson is still due about half of his '08 salary of $14MM. This was the last year of a 4-year/$50MM deal.

This move shouldn't come as a big surprise. After the firing of Bill Bavasi, the M's are clearly ready to shake up the roster and Sexson's contract was dead-weight.
