Eric Wedge said on Friday that cuts were coming "sooner than later" and sooner meant this morning.
The Mariners made the following roster moves:
3B Alex Liddi, LHP Mauricio Robles and OF Carlos Peguero were sent to Triple A Tacoma.
OF Johermyn Chavez was sent to Double A Jackson.
RHP Yusmeiro Petit and recently signed LHP James Paxton, who I wrote about today, were re-assigned to minor league camp.
Obviously, the Liddi cut is the most notable since he's been one of the hottest hitters of late. He's hit grand slams in consecutive days and had a hard-hit single. He's hitting .385 (5-of-13) this spring. Chavez has shown flashes of talent, including a great throwing arm.
