Mariners claim RHP Jesus Delgado from Marlins

Manager Jack Zduriencik continues to makes moves and be active, today claiming right-handed pitcher Jesus Delgado off of waivers from the Florida Marlins.

To make room on the 40-man roster for Delgado, LHP Ryan Feierabend, who recently underwent Tommy John surgery, was placed on the 60-day disabled list.

"As we have said repeatedly, our goal is to try and accumulate talent at every opportunity," Zduriencik said. "Jesus is a young player who has already reached the big leagues. We think he adds depth to the releif pitching group in our organization."

Delgado made his major league debut with the Marlins last season, appearing in two games.

Here's his complete stats

Delgado was signed by the Red Sox as a non-drafted free agent in 2001. However, he missed 2002 and 2003 season recovering from Tommy John surgery. He was later traded to the Marlins as part of the Josh Beckett trade that sent Beckett, Mike Lowell and Guillermo Mota to the Sox for Hanley Ramirez, Delgado, Anibal Sanchez and Harvey Garcia.
