Veteran reliever Casey Fien is coming to Philadelphia but not to rejoin the Mariners’ bullpen.
The Mariners traded Fien, 33, on Tuesday to the Phillies for cash considerations. He was sent to Triple-A Tacoma on an outright assignment May 3 after clearing waivers.
Fien allowed 10 runs in six innings in six big-league outings over two tours. He allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings at Tacoma in five games.
***The Mariners also acquired minor-league righty Bryan Bonnell from Tampa Bay for $321,100 in international bonus-pool money, which must be used before July 2.
Never miss a local story.
Bonnell, 23, was 0-2 with a 4.09 ERA this season in nine games at Hi-A Charlotte. He was a 36th-round pick in the 2015 MLB Draft.
***Reliever Justin De Fratus is returning to the Mariners’ organization after starting the season with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs in the independent Atlantic League. He will report to Double-A Arkansas.
De Fratus, 29, was 3-1 with a 1.40 ERA in four starts for the Blue Crabs. He pitched for the Phillies from 2011-15 before signing with the Mariners as a free agent on Dec. 2, 2015.
The Mariners sent De Fratus to Tacoma after moving him off their 40-man roster, and he was 2-2 with a 3.21 ERA in 19 relief appearances for the Rainers before a June 11 trade sent him to Texas.
