The Mariners signed 11 more players — the final 11 — to major league contracts Thursday, completing their 40-man roster the same day the club launched its Cactus League schedule against the San Diego Padres in Peoria, AZ. The Mariners inked seven pitchers, one catcher and three infielders.
The pitchers include LHP Bobby LaFromboise, LHP Lucas Luetge, RHP Brandon Mauer, RHP Hector Noesi, RHP Stephen Pryor, RHP Erasmo Ramirez and RHP Taijuan Walker. Catcher Jesus Sucre also signed, as did infielders Brad Miller, Jesus Montero and Carlos Triunfel.
Thursday’s Charity Game against the Padres begins a 33-game Cactus League schedule that will conclude March 28-29 with a pair of games against the Colorado Rockies.
The Mariners have 68 players in camp, including 40 on the major league roster. The 28 non-roster invitees includes 17 pitchers, four catchers, four infielders and three outfielders.
