Mariners tender contracts to 31 players on MLB roster

Seattle non-tenders Infielder Carlos Rivero

SEATTLE, Wash. -- Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jack Zduriencik tonight announced that the Mariners have tendered 2015 contracts to 31 players on their Major League roster. Seattle did not tender a contract to infielder Carlos Rivero.

Rivero is now a free agent and may negotiate with any of the 30 Major League teams, including Seattle.

With these transactions, the Mariners 40-man roster is now at 38 players.

Major League clubs had to make contract offers ("tender") to every player on their 40-man roster who is not already signed for the 2015 season by Dec. 2 at 9 pm (PDT).

Rivero, 26, was claimed off waivers by Seattle from Boston on November 3. He made his Major League debut last season, going 4-for-7 with a run scored, 2 doubles, 1 home run and 3 RBI in four games with Boston after spending nine seasons in the minors with the Indians, Phillies, Nationals and Red Sox organizations.
