Mariners designate Edgar Olmos for assignment


To make room for newly-signed Rickie Weeks on the 40-man roster, the Mariners have designated pitcher Edgar Olmos for assignment, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

The Mariners had picked up Olmos off waivers from the Marlins back in November. The left-hander has pitched only five innings in the major leagues, all in 2013, allowing nine runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out two. He finished with a combined 4.06 ERA with a 60/30 K/BB ratio in 77 2/3 innings between Double-A Jacksonville and Triple-A New Orleans this past season.
