Well, the other shoe dropped in the Joe Saunders signing moments ago and Mike Carp was the victim, getting DFA by the Mariners. Carp was just about to leave his Los Angeles area home and drive to Arizona for spring training in the next day or two. Now, he’s staying put a little while longer, since the Mariners have 10 days to trade, release or outright him to Class AAA. In case you’re wondering, no, he would not make it through waivers if the Mariners chose to outright him.
