Mariners Release Richie Sexson

In a long-awaited move, the Mariners released first baseman Richie Sexson today.  They’ll eat about $6MM in salary for the rest of the year.

Sexson, 33, is hitting .218/.315/.381 in 292 plate appearances this year.  Perhaps someone could pick him up as a lefty-masher; he’s fared well against them this year (not so much in 2006-07 though).
