Kameron Loe added to the Mariners roster; Josh Kinney to 60-day DL

Kameron Loe was put on the 40-man roster by the Mariners today and will open season in team's bullpen.

Kameron Loe was put on the 40-man roster by the Mariners today and will open season in team’s bullpen.

Kameron Loe had an “out” clause in his Mariners contract that he was eligible to execute as of today. Unlike Jon Garland last week, the Mariners did not make him wait. They added him to their 40-man roster this morning, making room by putting Josh Kinney on the 60-day disabled list.

Loe has logged 15 strikeouts in nine innings of relief work this spring. He gives the Mariners much-needed veteran experience from the right side of their bullpen, with an arm that can log multiple innings if needed.

And an arm that should hold up through the entirety of a season if no injury occurs. With younger arms, you can’t always say the same. That’s why it was apparent even last week that Loe was going to be given a job as long as something didn’t happen to mess up the team’s available roster spot situation.

You can read all about Loe’s improved changeup this spring and how it has morphed into a strikeout pitch for him by clicking right here and checking out my story in today’s print edition.
