Mariners Designate Milton Bradley
By Justin Worsley,
The Seattle Mariners cut outfielder Milton Bradley on Tuesday, ending the 33-year-old's run in Seattle.
The Mariners designated Bradley for assignment, giving the team 10 days to either trade, release or demote him to the minors.
In the past week, Bradley was suspended for a game for making contact with an umpire, ejected from another for arguing a called strike and booed by home fans. Bradley is making $13 million this season.
A former All-Star, Bradley is batting just .218 with two home runs and 13 RBIs. He has also struck out 31 times.
Bradley will now be looking for hit ninth team to play for. Carlos Peguero was called up from Triple-A Tacoma to replace Bradley.
