Mariners Release Yusmeiro Petit

The Mariners released pitcher Yusmeiro Petit, tweets Ryan Divish of the Tacoma News Tribune.  He'd allowed two earned runs in 4.6 innings for the Ms this spring.

Petit was claimed off waivers from the Diamondbacks by the Mariners in November.  He was designated for assignment in February to make room for Erik Bedard, and cleared waivers a few days later.  The 25-year-old posted a 5.82 ERA, 7.4 K/9, and 3.4 BB/9 in 89.6 innings for Arizona last year, allowing 19 home runs.

    It was fitting that Petit and Romero would be released on the same day.

    Petit is one of those guys that I’ve wondered what Dave Duncan could do (if anything) with.

    Yet they keep Garrett Olson. The headscratching continues

    Hmm. With Webb sidelined for a month or so, I wonder if the dback will bring him back in.

    He should go to the place where fly ball pitchers have a better chance for success-the Padres. Maybe he can be a help to manage the innings load on the younger staff members. He’s still fairly young; maybe he’ll figure it out and be of some use to them.
