40-Man Roster News (Seattle edition)

The Seattle Mariners made a lot of additions to their 40-man roster late last week.  As in 10 additions:

Seven were pitchers — right-handers Josh Lueke, Tom Wilhelmsen, Michael Pineda, Maikel Cleto and Yoervis Medina and left-handers Mauricio Robles and Cesar Jimenez. The others were outfielders Johermyn Chavez and Carlos Peguero and infielder Alex Liddi.

The ex-Timber Rattlers in that group are: Pineda (’08), Jimenez (’03), Peguero (’07), and Liddi (’06,-’08).

In other ex-Rattlers news concerning the Mariners, Ryan Feierabend (’04) has a new team.

Left-hander Ryan Feierabend, who the Seattle Mariners saw through surgeries and development, has been invited to spring training as a non-roster invitee – by the Philadelphia Phillies.

A month ago, Feierabend was outrighted to Tacoma and declined the assignment, becoming a free agent. Now 25, he’ll get a look in Philadelphia.

He pitched at three levels in the Mariners organization last season, going a combined 5-8 with a 5.14 ERA in 25 games with Tacoma, West Tennessee and High Desert.
