Ryan Langerhans Clears Waivers

MONDAY, 2:52pm: Ryan Divish of The Tacoma News Tribune tweets that Langerhans has cleared waivers and will report to Triple-A Tacoma.

THURSDAY, 2:14pm: The Mariners designated outfielder Ryan Langerhans for assignment to make room for reliever Jesus Colome, tweets ESPN's Shannon Drayer.  This ends the Mariners' six-man bullpen experiment.  U.S.S. Mariner's Dave Cameron wrote yesterday that while he feels a six-man pen can work, he's not sure the Mariners are presently built for one.  Talking to Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times, Ms GM Jack Zduriencik explained why Langerhans was cut instead of Mike Sweeney.

Langerhans, 30, hit .218/.311/.386 in 122 big league plate appearances last year.  He hit .278/.371/.488 at Triple A.  Langerhans was non-tendered by the Mariners in December but re-signed a week later.

And here I thought they were making room to bring Ben Buttreach up from AAA. (Oh, Dugout, wherefore art thou?)

katrina, i think the whole griffey situation is a product of people hire up on the totem pole then jack z and wak, and sweeney’s spot would have been held by garko, a player who would be doing the exact same thing sweeney is doing right now

always liked Langerhans, the guy is a workhorse. But honestly, demoting him to make room for Jesus Colome? Colome stunk it up in one of the most well-rounded parks (doesnt favor the pitcher or hitter) in the game, Nationals PArk. Colome is AAAA at best. Langerhans is a good 4th outfielder
