Mariners Designate Chiang for Assignment

The Mariners announced today that they have designated outfielder Chih-Hsien Chiang for assignment. Oliver Perez was selected from Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding 40-man-roster move.

Chiang, 24, was acquired by the M's in the three-way swap that sent Erik Bedard to the Red Sox prior to last summer's non-waiver trade deadline. The left-handed hitter posted a .242/.273/.342 line in 59 games at Double-A and Triple-A this season, a poor showing after a promising 2011 in which he .302/.361/.537 in Boston's and Seattle's organizations.
