The Mariners have outrighted utilityman Kristopher Negron after he cleared waivers, per Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times (via Twitter).
That leaves the team with a 40-man roster opening. Veteran outfield Ichiro Suzuki will ultimately need a roster spot to play in the club’s season-opening series in Japan.
As Divish notes, today’s decision clears the way for Dylan Moore to make the team as a bench piece. He had been battling with Negron for the honors.
Negron, acquired in late August, has taken only 334 career plate appearances in the majors. The 33-year-old has torn up Triple-A pitching over the past two seasons, however.
Too bad. This will make Kristopher cross.
Smh, fine here’s a like.
Hopefully he rides like the wind to his next destination.
canocorn and gofish…I see you working. Punny!
I don’t get it who does Cross play for ???
Happy to see Moore is getting a look. Perhaps yesterday’s Willie Bloomquist will be today’s Dylan Moore. If so, I hope he brought enough grit to share with the entire class.
