Mariners RF Justin Ruggiano placed on outright assignment
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/13/15) Mariners right fielder Justin Ruggiano is headed to Triple-A Tacoma on an outright assignment after he cleared waivers on Saturday, according to The News Tribune.
Ruggiano was designated for assignment on June 4. He was hitting .214 with two home runs and three RBI in 81 at-bats this season.
Mariners OF Justin Ruggiano designated for assignment Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/4/15) The Mariners have designated outfielder Justin Ruggiano for assignment, the team announced on Thursday. Ruggiano seemingly became expendable following Wednesday's acquisition of Mark Trumbo from the Diamondbacks.
Ruggiano received 81 plate appearances in 2015, batting .214/.321/.357 with two home runs and three RBI.
The move opens up a roster spot for catcher Jesus Sucre who was recalled from Triple-A on Thursday.
"Those things are never easy," manager Lloyd McClendon said, per MLB.com. "It was a very difficult decision, but you've got to have a backup catcher and you can only carry 25, so somebody had to go. Obviously there was going to be a tremendous lack of playing time for whoever that guy was. Hopefully this gives him the opportunity to catch on with somebody else."

Ruggiano and Zunino got the day off on Sunday with Welington Castillo and Dustin Ackley drawing starts. Ruggiano is hitting .207 with three RBI in 58 at-bats this season. Zunino is hitting .183 in 120 at-bats this season. The Mariners are currently the underdogs (+115) against Tampa Bay.

Ruggiano scored the team's first run of the game on a second-inning double then came back with his two-run blast in the fourth inning. It's the second straight two-hit performance for the outfielder.
Ruggiano has hit .235/.328/.431 with two home runs, three RBI and three stolen bases in 51 at-bats.
Mariners make wholesale changes to spark lineup
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/20/15) The slumping Mariners juggled their lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, hoping to find a spark for a team that hasn't lived up to expectations.
Willie Bloomquist returns to the starting lineup for the first time in 11 games, hitting second and playing left field, while Justin Ruggiano and Rickie Weeks also draw rare starts in center and DH, respectively.
Those moves bump Dustin Ackley and Brad Miller out of the lineup. Ackley has seen his average plummet to .186 this season. Miller has been one of the hottest Seattle hitters, but went 0-for-4 Tuesday to snap a six-game hitting streak.
