Mariners Sign Owens

The News Tribune.

Outfielder Jerry Owens, who was designated for assignment by the Chicago White Sox, on May 1st has signed a minor league deal with the Mariners. The move was announced a few minutes ago.

The White Sox decided to DFA Owens to make room for another light hitting outfielder - Scott Podsednik, who was called up from Triple A.

After being DFA'd Owens chose to become a free agent rather than accept an outright assignment to the minors.

Owens, 28, appeared in 12 games for the Sox this season and had just 12 at-bats.

He's got some speed. He had 32 steals in 2007, but he hasn't proven to be much of a hitter.

Owens will head to Triple A Tacoma on Monday.
.083/.267/.083. That's what Owens is batting this season. It's a small sample size, but his career line (.262/.319/.305) and age (28) point to a very, very low reward here.
