Ryan Langerhans, the 29-year-old journeyman outfielder acquired in June for Mike Morse, was non-tendered by the Seattle Mariners.
The left-handed hitter appeared in 38 games with Seattle and won two games for the Mariners with walk off home runs in extra-innings, beating Tampa Bay on Aug. 7, then Oakland on Aug. 25.
The move makes Langerhans a free agent and clears a spot on Seattle's 40-man roster. He could be resigned to a minor league contract. In a career than began in 1998, Langerhans has played in 512 big-league games, playing for the Braves, Athletics and Nationals before joining the Mariners.
Langerhans departure leaves Seattle with five outfielders on their 40-man roster: Ezequiel Carrera, Franklin Gutierrez, Greg Halman, Michael Saunders and Ichiro Suzuki. Ken Griffey Jr. is on the roster as well, but listed as a designated hitter.
