Four Mariners players -- catcher Josh Bard, reliever Jamey Wright, infielder Adam Kennedy and designated hitter Wily Mo Pena -- became free agents on Sunday as the Major League Baseball offseason officially got underway.
Mariners blogger Danny Ferguson brings us some Seattle Mariners breaking news today. Today the M's bid fair well to veteran closer David Aardsma. Aardsma has indicated that he would be interested in playing for the Mariners again in the future, but is excited to see what opportunities are ahead of him in the MLB.
The Seattle Mariners released right-handed reliever David Aardsma after his refusal to be outrighted.
Aardsma missed the entire 2010 season after he had surgery in the offseason to repair a torn labrum in his hip. He then needed Tommy John surgery in July following an arm injury.
Aardsma notched 69 saves in two seasons with the Mariners, fourth-most in team history.
Mariners blogger Danny Ferguson points out if the Mariners starters could go deep into the game the M's bullpen could generally prevent too many surprises. Brandon League adapted very well to the closing role. The Mariners have a lot of talent, but there are few differences in the styles and deliveries in these hurlers. David Aardsma coming back will help.
