Statement from Jerry Dipoto, Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations on Tweets from catcher Steve Clevenger

The Seattle Mariners are very disappointed at the tweets posted on Steve Clevenger's account. While he is certainly free to express himself, his tweets do not in any way represent the opinions of the Seattle Mariners. We strongly disagree with the language and tone of his comments.

We are currently examining all internal options that are available to us as we determine appropriate next steps.

We will have no further comment at this time.
