Patterson opts out of Minor League contract

Outfielder Corey Patterson, hoping to earn a spot as an extra outfielder as a non-roster invitee to Spring Training, came up short and decided to seek employment elsewhere.

Patterson, who has Major League experience with the Cubs (2000-’06), Orioles (2006-’08), Nationals (‘2009) and Brewers (’09)  has opted out of his Minor League contract and is now a free agent, available to sign with any team organization. 

Patterson appeared in 19 Cactus League games this spring, and batted .216 (8-for-37) with two doubles, two home runs and two RBIs.

His depature leaves the Mariners with 32 players in their Major League Camp, 27 roster players and five non-roster invitees.
