Mariners add to 40-man roster

The Mariners did make some roster moves, but in a minor way.

They selected the contracts of OF James Jones, OF Stefen Romero, 1B Ji-Man Choi and RP Logan Bawcom, placing them on the 40-man roster, protecting them from the upcoming Rule 5 Draft.

The 40-man roster now stands at 38, hinting at the possibility of the Mariners signing two free agents. Other acquisitions would have to be via trades.
