According to numerous sources on Twitter today, Corey Hart has been activated from the disabled list while outfielder Cole Gillespie has been designated for assignment. From Ryan Divish at the Seattle Times:
#Mariners roster move: Corey Hart activated from the DL, Cole Gillespie DFA
— Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) July 4, 2014
It seems that Dustin Ackley‘s quick 6 hits to start the month of July have kept him in the Mariners uniform for the foreseeable future, with Gillespie being the odd man out.
Gillespie has been taken off the 40-man roster, and in the following 10 days the Mariners need to make one of these contractual moves:
1: Place Gillespie on waivers (which must be done in the first 7 days of the 10 day period)
2: Trade Gillespie
3: release Gillespie
4: outright Gillespie from the 40-man roster into the Minor Leagues.
Are you happy about the move? Do you think Gillespie was the right man to take off of the roster?
And a Happy 4th from all of us at Sodo Mojo, enjoy the game in Chicago at 4:10 PM Pacific!
