Mariners roster set: Liddi stays, Peguero goes

The Seattle Mariners got down to their reopening day roster today by cutting left-handed pitcher Charlie Furbush and outfielder Carlos Peguero - opening spots on the roster that allowed rookies like Alex Liddi, Erasmo Ramirez and Lucas Luetge to stick.

Peguero joined the team after outfielder Mike Carp was injured in Japan and placed on the disabled list. The team kept three outfielders - Casper Wells, Michael Saunders and Icihro Suzuki - and will use Chone Figgins in the outfield as needed.

Liddi, the Italian who played first base and third this spring, batted .370 in 15 games, driving in 13 RBI. Peguero hit .294 with five home runs and 13 RBI.

Both Peguero and Furbush were optioned to Tacoma and should be there for opening night tomorrow.

Here's the complete 25-man roster, with players on the disabled list in Italics:
