Mariners Claim Scott Cousins

According to Sosnick Cobbe Sports, and echoed by beat writer Greg Johns, the Mariners have claimed outfielder Scott Cousins off waivers.

Cousins is the eighth outfielder to claim a roster spot, joining Mike Carp, Franklin Gutierrez, Carlos Peguero, Michael Saunders, Casper Wells, Eric Thames, and Trayvon Robinson. From Johns’ MLB blog:

It’s hard seeing where Cousins might fit into that mix, but he does have one Minor League option remaining, while Carp, Robinson and Wells are out of options.

At 27 years old, Scott has spent his three-year MLB career with the Miami Marlins, batting .183/.231/.291 in 128 games and 188 PA. In 2012, he split playing time between the big club and its Triple-A affiliate. He was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays in October, and designated for assignment just two weeks later.
