Lefty Reliever Joe Beimel Back With Seattle
The Seattle Mariners brought back left-handed reliever Joe Beimel on a minor-league deal and optioned newly acquired left-hander Mike Montgomery to Triple-A Tacoma. Seattle made the roster moves Thursday during an off day. Beimel had been with the Rangers during spring training but struggled, giving up 11 earned runs in three innings over four appearances. He was released by the Rangers on March 23.
