The Mariners optioned infielder Tug Hulett to Tacoma, a move that presumably clears a roster spot for Bryan LaHair. The team’s release:


SEATTLE, Wash. – Seattle Mariners Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Lee Pelekoudas announced today that the Mariners have optioned infielder Tug Hulett to triple-A Tacoma.

Hulett, 25, was selected from Tacoma on July 10 and appeared in one game with the Mariners. He made his Major League debut on July 12 at Kansas City, going 1-for-3 as the designated hitter. In 71 games with AAA Tacoma he was hitting .302 (79×262) with 17 doubles, 9 homers and 32 RBI. Hulett was acquired by Seattle from Texas in exchange for INF Ben Broussard on Dec. 12, 2007. He is the son of former Major League infielder Tim Hulett.
