According to a report yesterday by Jon Morosi of Fox Sports, Ryan Garko was placed on waivers by the Mariners.   He did not hit very well in spring training and is not known for his defensive abilities.   However, he is still young and would make a decent platoon partner for either Jacobs or Carter.   During the off-season I did not see that much of a need for Garko, however with Murphy out up to 6 weeks how could we not be interested?
