SEATTLE, Wash. - Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jack Zduriencik announce tonight that the Mariners have traded infielder Jack Wilson to the Atlanta Braves in exchange for a player to be named later.

Wilson, 33, is currently on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised left heel. Just prior to his injury, he had a six-game hitting streak (Aug. 8-16) during which he hit .455 (10-for-22) with 4 doubles and 4 RBI. Wilson is eligible to return from the DL on Sept. 2.

In 62 games with the Mariners this season, Wilson hit .249 (43-for-173) with 8 doubles and 11 RBI. Wilson appeared in games at second base (45 games, 38 starts), shortstop (13 games, 13 starts) and third base (1 game, 1 start).

Wilson was acquired by Seattle on July 29, 2009. In parts of three seasons (2009-2011) he appeared in 254 games with the Mariners, batting a combined .243 with 24 doubles, 1 triple, 1 home run and 33 RBI.

In his Major League career with Pittsburgh (2001-2009) and Seattle, he is a .266 hitter in 1,313 games.
