M’s Make Roster Moves

Let’s catch up on the Mariners last round or roster moves, along with a bevy of links.

Optioned to Triple-A Tacoma (3):

Outfielder (1): Braden Bishop

Left-Handed Pitcher (1): Nick Margevicius

Right-Handed Pitcher (1):   Art Warren

Optioned to AA Arkansas (1):

Outfielder (1): Jose Siri

Re-Assigned to Minor League Camp (6):

Outfielders (2): Rymer Liriano, Julio Rodríguez

Catchers (2): Joseph Odom, Joe Hudson

Left-Handed Pitchers (2): Manny Bañuelos, Ian McKinney

These moves leave 52 players in Major League camp.

The surprise here is the early option of outfielder Braden Bishop, who figured to have a strong chance to make the club as a reserve outfielder. Tim Lopes’ chances of making the squad improved a lot today.

It was unexpected to see Jose Siri optioned to Double-A instead of Tacoma, but we swiftly found out why: he had been placed on waivers, and today he was claimed by the San Francisco Giants. Siri, we hardly knew ye.

The M’s now have a spot on the 40-man roster to play with, in case a non-roster player makes the M’s opening day squad or they want to claim a player off waivers from another organization.

  1. I’m sure Bishop is disappointed, that being said he is a tremendous asset for the Rainiers. Tacoma it seemed to me was playing much better last year when he was here. He reminds me of Daniel Robertson (2016) both were kind of a catalyst for their respective teams.
