Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jack Zduriencik announced today that the club has acquired outfielder Ryan Langerhans from the Washington Nationals.

"Langerhans acquisition gives us some Major League experience and a degree of versatility," Zduriencik said. "He can play all three outfield positions, as well as first base. He adds to the depth in our system."

Langerhans, 29, is a 6-foot-3, 220-pound left-handed hitting outfielder. He spent this season at AAA Syracuse, where he was hitting .278 (57x205) with 16 doubles, 9 home runs and 40 RBI in 64 games.

Langerhans has appeared in the Majors in parts of the past seven seasons with Atlanta (2002-2007), Oakland (2007) and Washington (2007-08), playing a total of 474 games. He is a career .233 hitter with 50 doubles, 10 triples, 24 home runs and 105 RBI in his big league career.

Langerhans was originally a third-round draft pick by the Atlanta Braves in the June, 1998 draft.

In exchange for Langerhans, the Mariners sent the Nationals minor league infielder Mike Morse. Morse was hitting .312 (81x260) with 14 doubles, 10 home runs and 52 RBI in 66 games with the AAA Tacoma Rainiers this season. He has spent parts of the past four seasons (2005-2008) with Seattle, compiling a career Major League mark of .300 (90x300) with 18 doubles, 1 triple, 3 home runs 37 RBI in 107 games.
