Ryan Anderson remains a Mariner 

Apparently, no one in baseball think that Ryan Anderson is going to amount to anything this year, as he has cleared waivers and been assigned to the Tacoma Rainiers (AAA).

Thankfully, no one wanted to give up a 40-man roster spot AND take on the Little Units' medical costs AND pay the M's $20,000 and Anderson $50,000 for the privilege. Not even his hometown Tigers.

Sidelined the past three seasons by a three separate shoulder surgeries, Anderson is still unable to throw from a mound. Seattle's best-case scenario was to get Anderson back in game action by late May.

So the bad news is that Ryan is such a mess that no team will take a chance on him and it is unlikely that he will ever pitch in the majors. The good news is that if he does, it will likely be as a Seattle Mariner.
