Seattle Mariners Roster Report 2009-01-29
RHP David Aardsma was acquired in trade from Boston, with the Mariners giving up Class A LHP Fabian Williamson.

ARRIVALS: CF Endy Chavez (trade with Mets), LHP Jason Vargas (trade with Mets), 1B Mike Carp (trade with Mets), CF Franklin Gutierrez (trade with Indians), SS Reegie Corona (Rule 5 selection from Yankees), LHP Jose Lugo (Rule 5 selection from Twins, via Royals), RHP Tyler Walker (free agent from Giants), RHP David Aardsma (trade with Red Sox), LHP Garrett Olson (trade with Cubs), INF Ronny Cedeno (trade with Cubs).

DEPARTURES: RHP J.J. Putz (traded to Mets), RHP Sean Green (traded to Mets), CF Jeremy Reed (traded to Mets), 2B Luis Valbuena (traded to Indians), LF Raul Ibanez (free agent, signed with Phillies), RHP R.A. Dickey (free agent, signed with Twins), INF/OF Willie Bloomquist (free agent, signed with Royals), RHP Aaron Heilman (traded to Cubs).

FREE AGENTS: INF Miguel Cairo.

Cairo is a nice utility player but isn't a high priority for Seattle to retain.



C Jeff Clement had left knee surgery in September and doesn't figure to be healthy much before spring training, but by then he should be ready to go.

LHP Erik Bedard had a cyst removed from his left shoulder by arthroscopic surgery in September. His rehab time is four to six months, so he's expected to be ready come spring training. He had begun throwing by Christmas and reported that he felt great.

3B Adrian Beltre had arthroscopic surgery on his left thumb and left shoulder in September, and he is expected to be ready to go come spring training.

LHP Jarrod Washburn was held out of most of September because of a left abdominal muscle strain that is expected to heal itself in the coming weeks.

RHP Carlos Silva missed much of September with back problems but is expected to be healthy come the spring.
