M's Trim Roster 

Today the Mariners trimmed the roster by 9 players.

Going to AAA Tacoma:
Shin-Shoo Choo: Removes any temptation to keep him as 4th/5th OF. Getting full-time at bats in AAA as a top prospect should.
Michael Morse: Looks like he stays at shortstop, for now.
Justin Leone: Has slipped behind Greg Dobbs again, as Dobbs contends for a bench spot.
Clint Nageotte: Will he continue to start, or will he be groomed for MLB relief role?

Heading to AA San Antonio
C Rene Rivera: Looks like Wiki will get the Tacoma catching chores.
SS Rafael Bentacourt: Should be interesting to see how he fares here.

Heading to A+ Inland Empire:
Wladamir Balentien: Took his hacks.

Location TBD: Jon Huber, Mickey Lopez
