Found February 19, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
There are several teams expressing some level of interest in Seattle Mariners first baseman/outfielder Mike Carp, including the Boston Red Sox, Minnesota Twins and Houston Astros, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe.’s Adam McCalvy adds that the Milwaukee Brewers have also checked in on Carp after losing first baseman Mat Gamel for the season. Carp was recently designated for assignment by the Mariners to clear a spot on the roster for left-hander Joe Saunders. Seattle has until Thursday to make a decision on the 26-year-old, and general manager Jack Zduriencik said there’s a good chance a trade will be completed in the next 24-48 hours. Teams, such as the Red Sox, were reportedly considering Carp before he was designated by the Mariners. While he didn’t post favorable numbers in 2012, hitting only .213/.312/.341 with six doubles and five home runs in 189 plate appearances, Carp was a productive hitter for the Mariners in 2011. That year he hit .276/.326/.466 with 17 doubles and 12 home runs over 313 plate appearances. Carp owns a career batting line of .255/.327/.413 over parts of four seasons in the majors.
