And then, there were 62 in camp

The Seattle Mariners made their first three cuts of spring training, sending left-handed pitchers Steve Garrison and Phillippe Valquette and righty Jarrett Grube to minor league camp.

That leaves the team with 62 players in camp and 13 days before they fly to Japan for a pair of exhibition games and two regular-season contests with Oakland in Tokyo.

Seattle still has a pair of double-headers and a 'B' game on the schedule, which is why the Mainers are reluctant to move many players.
