Mariners Bring Back Sparks High Grad Messenger

By  | 

SEATTLE (AP) - Right-hander Randy Messenger agreed Friday to a
minor league contract with the Seattle Mariners, two days after he
was waived off the major league roster to clear a roster spot.

The 27-year-old had a 3.55 ERA and one save in 13 games last season with Seattle. He also spent six weeks with Triple-A Tacoma.

Seattle removed him from the big league roster after acquiring infielder Ronny Cedeno and left-hander Garrett Olson from the Cubs in a deal that sent reliever Aaron Heilman to Chicago.
