Mariners trim the roster again

Three more cuts in camp, with first basemen Bryan LaHair and Mike Carp and right-handed pitcher Gaby Hernandeze each sent to the minors.

None figured to make the Seattle Mariners opening day roser - but each had hopes.

For LaHair and Carp, there simply were no more at-bats to be given at their position, not with Russell Branyan, Chris Shelton and Mike Sweeney dividing time at first base in the near future.

Hernandez, who got a longer than expected look because of the World Baseball Classic (Felix Hernandez and Carlos Silva) and injuries (Erik Bedard and Brandon Morrow) was sent out to get regular work.
