Mariners Outright French To Triple-A

THURSDAY: French has cleared waivers, and the Mariners have outrighted him to Triple-A Tacoma, according to a club release.

SATURDAY: The Mariners have designated lefty Luke French for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Wily Mo Pena, according to Greg Johns of MLB.com (via Twitter).

In 31 career big league appearances (25 starts), French owns a 4.99 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, 4.6 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9. The 25-year-old lefty has not yet appeared in the Majors this season, making 23 starts with Triple-A Tacoma.

French was selected in the eighth round of the 2004 draft by the Tigers, with whom he made his big league debut in 2009. He was acquired by Seattle in the deal that sent Jarrod Washburn to Detroit prior to the non-waiver trade deadline in 2009.
