SEATTLE — The Seattle Mariners designated mercurial outfielder Milton Bradley for assignment today, recalling outfielder Carlos Peguero to take Bradley’s place on the roster.

The move comes just hours after the team designated Ryan Langerhans for assignment to make room for outfielder Mike Wilson on the roster.

Seattle now has 10 days to release, trade or outright Bradley’s contract.

Bradley, whose off-field issues are well-known in Seattle and with other teams, was batting .218 with two home runs and 13 RBI in 28 games. He hit just .209 in his career as a Mariner.

Peguero is making his second appearance this season. He spent six days with the team earlier this year after Justin Smoak went on the bereavement list. He was hitting .282 with AAA Tacoma.
