The Mariners announced that they have designated outfielder Johermyn Chavez for assignment. The move creates a 40-man roster spot for the team, which added Mike Carp, Luis Jimenez, Shawn Kelley, Alex Liddi, Hector Noesi, Carlos Triunfel and Casper Wells to the active MLB roster today.
Chavez spent most of the 2012 season with Seattle's Double-A Jackson affiliate. The 23-year-old posted a .232/.339/.386 batting line in 288 plate appearances at that level this year. The Mariners now have 10 days to trade, release or outright Chavez, who was dealt to Seattle with Brandon League for Brandon Morrow.
I hope they can keep Chavez around at least one more season. He was starting to hit a bit after some injury issues, and he’s still young.

I have no faith in Jack Z to lead this team anymore. He can’t evaluate talent at all.
Even if you’re not the greatest at evaluating talent, if you keep loading up on top 5 picks year after year you’re bound to strike gold eventually.
Unless youre the KC Royals… and let your best prospects just hang out in AAA all the time
