Delabar down to AAA, Perez up to the Mariners
Per a press release from the Seattle Mariners on June 16 the Mariners called up left-hander Oliver Perez from Triple-A Tacoma and optioned right-hander Steve Delabar to Tacoma.
They also designated outfielder Chih-Hsien Chiang for assignment.
Perez, 30, was 2-2 with a 4.65 ERA in 22 relief appearances with Tacoma. His 12.19 strikeouts per nine innings led Pacific Coast relievers.
Delabar made one appearance in his most recent stint with the Mariners.
He had been sent down May 30 and recalled June 13, pitching two innings against San Diego on June 14.
Chiang had split the season between Tacoma and Double-A Jackson, hitting .242 with three home runs and 25 RBI. He was part of the deal last July that sent left-hander Erik Bedard and right-hander Josh Fields to Boston.
"[Perez] was throwing the ball well in Triple-A, obviously a lot of big league experience -- different role for him out of the bullpen -- high strikeout ratio from the left side, so we felt like it was a good time to take a look at [him]," Mariners manager Eric Wedge said.
