Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Bill Bavasi announced today that the Mariners have purchased left-handed pitcher Luis E. Gonzalez from the Colorado Rockies.

Colorado acquired Gonzalez on December 8, in the Major League portion of the Rule 5 Draft.

"We will bring Luis to camp with the idea that he could compete for a role as a left-hander out of our bullpen," Bavasi said.

Gonzalez, 22, is a 6-foot, 205-pound left-handed pitcher from Santurce, Puerto Rico. He split the 2005 season between Double-A Jacksonville and Triple-A Las Vegas.

With the AA Suns he was 7-2, 2.21 with 7 saves in 41 games. He also appeared in 10 games with the AAA 51s, posting an 0-1, 9.31 mark.

Gonzalez graduated from Florida Air Academy in Melbourne, Florida. He was originally an 11th-round pick in the June, 2001 draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Also today, the Mariners announced that right-handed pitcher Jeff Harris has been outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma and right-handed pitcher Cha Seung Baek has been designated for assignment.

Harris, 29, made his Major League debut with the Mariners in 2005. He was 2-5, 4.19 in 11 Major League games (8 starts) with Seattle last season. He started the year at Double-A San Antonio (5-0, 2.10) and also pitched at Triple-A Tacoma (5-2, 2.78). He was designated for assignment on Dec. 8.

Baek, 25, spent the 2005 season with Triple-A Tacoma. He was 8-8, 6.41 in 25 games, 21 starts, with the Rainiers. Baek was signed by Seattle as a non-drafted free agent on Sept. 25, 1998.
