Corey Hart Recalled, Cole Gillespie DFA'd

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:

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.

With this move the Mariners now carry 4 legitimate outfielders in Ackley, James Jones, Michael Saunders, and Endy Chavez. Logan Morrison can get time in right field as well.

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!
