White was added to the Mariners' 40-man roster on Aug. 23. He appeared in six games, going 0-1 with an 8.40 ERA, pitching for the 11th team in his career, one short of the major league record. His last appearance came on Wednesday, when he allowed one run in two-thirds of an inning in New York, before being ejected for arguing balls and strikes.
The 38-year-old signed with the Mariners as a minor league free agent on July 23 after being released by Houston.
Seattle said it would make a corresponding roster move before the start of a three-game series Friday in Detroit. The Mariners and Tigers began the day three back of the Yankees in the wild-card chase.
