Minor Moves: Joe Beimel, Logan Kensing, Manny Pina

There were a few minor moves from earlier today that got lost in the arbitration shuffle:

  • Seattle has also inked southpaw Joe Beimel, tweets Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports. The 36-year-old last pitched in the bigs in 2011, but Brown says his velocity has returned after making a full recovery from Tommy John surgery.
  • The Mariners have signed righty Logan Kensing and catcher Manny Pina to minor league deals with Spring Training invites, according to the club's non-roster invitee page. Kensing, 31, has a 5.79 ERA in 161 2/3 MLB innings. He made one appearance last year for the Rockies, but last saw the show in 2009. Pina 26, has had two brief cups of coffee with the Royals. At Triple-A last year for the Kansas City organization, he put up a .228/.274/.359 triple-slash in 325 plate appearances.
  • Only one player remains in DFA limbo at the moment, per MLBTR's DFA Tracker: Carlos Peguero of the Mariners.

Mighty Morphin Texas Rangers Mitch Moreland may help the Mariners offense woes besides Cano, Hart, and Morrison if it will take Carlos Peguero and a low prospect to acquire Moreland before trading Justin Smoak, Nick Franklin, and a player to be named to the Brewers for Gallardo (in case Tanaka is not a Mariner).
