Roster move: Corey Hart activated from DL, Cole Gillespie designated for assignment

The Mariners made a somewhat expected roster move today, activating Corey Hart from the disabled list. To make room for Hart, outfielder Cole Gillespie was designated for assignment.

Hart played left field for the Rainiers the other night – a sign that his legs were starting to become strong enough to make a return. In 10 rehab games with Tacoma, Hart was hitting .297 (11-for-37) with three doubles, a triple, a homer and four RBI. Hart has been on the DL since May 18 after suffering a hamstring strain against the Minnesota Twins on a stolen base attempt.

Gillespie appeared in 34 games, hitting .254 (18-for-71) with two doubles, a homer and five RBI. His playing time had dwindled in the last week. He’d played just twice since July 25. ¬†Gillespie was signed in the offseason as a minor league free agent. The Mariners have 10 days to either release, trade or outright Gillespie.
