Mariners Release Josh Wilson

The Mariners released infielder Josh Wilson, tweets MLB.com's Greg Johns.  Wilson, 30, hit .227/.278/.29 in 388 plate appearances for the Mariners last year, logging 839 innings at shortstop.  By cutting him now, the Mariners owe only 45 days termination pay.  On a $725K salary that amounts to about $179K.

The Everett Herald's Kirby Arnold tweeted earlier today that the Mariners selected the contracts of Chris Ray and Jamey Wright, so today's purchase of Adam Kennedy's contract fills up the team's 40-man roster.  Wilson told Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times the Mariners are keeping non-roster invitee Luis Rodriguez as well, which can be made possible by placing Mauricio Robles on the 60-day DL.
