The latest minor moves from around baseball…
- The Mariners outrighted first baseman/outfielder Jose Marmolejos to Triple-A, the club announced. Marmolejos cleared waivers after being designated for assignment earlier this week. The 28-year-old has hit .177/.263/.355 over 209 plate appearances with Seattle in the last two seasons, which marks all of Marmolejos’ career big league experience. Marmolejos spent nine seasons in the Nationals’ minor league system (hitting .288/.354/.448 with 72 home runs in 3440 plate appearances) before signing a minors contract with Seattle after the 2019 campaign.
Marmolejos: great on toast, but only average in an MLB lineup.
Bearded Texas Hulk
Id say decidedly below average.
Nine years in the Nats system without a call up.
