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.
