SEATTLE (AP) -Right fielder Brad Wilkerson and pinch-hitter Greg Norton were cut Wednesday by the Seattle Mariners, who promoted catching prospect Jeff Clement and power-hitting outfielder Wladimir Balentien from Triple-A Tacoma.
Wilkerson signed a $4 million, one-year contract before spring training. He was batting .232 with five RBIs in 19 games. The team has 10 days to trade Wilkerson and Norton, release them or assign them to outright to the minor leagues.
