By Todd Zolecki / MLB.com
Half of those players -- left-hander Dan Meyer, right-hander Eddie Bonine, infielders Pete Orr and Jeff Larish, and catchers Dane Sardinha and Erik Kratz -- have been reported previously. That left six new names:
Outfielder Brandon Moss, 27, who hit .266 with 22 home runs and 96 RBIs in 136 games with Triple-A Indianapolis. Moss notably was part of the 2008 three-team deal with the Red Sox, Dodgers and Pirates that included Manny Ramirez and Jason Bay. Moss has hit .238 with 15 home runs and 78 RBIs in 244 games with the Red Sox (2007-08) and Pirates (2008-10).
Infielder Josh Barfield, 27, hit .294 with five homers and 36 RBIs in 78 games with Triple-A Portland. He has hit .264 with 16 homers and 112 RBIs in 309 games with the Padres and Indians. His father is Jesse Barfield, who played 12 seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees.
Outfielder Matt Miller, 27, hit .325 with 10 homers and 81 RBIs in 136 games with Triple-A Colorado Springs to earn Pacific Coast League All-Star honors.
Left-hander Juan Perez, 32, went 4-3 with a 2.96 ERA and one save in 45 appearances with Triple-A Albuquerque. He is 0-1 with a 5.17 ERA in 23 games in his big league career with the Pirates (2006-07).
Infielder/outfielder Tagg Bozied, 31, hit .315 with 27 homers and 92 RBIs with Double-A Reading. The Eastern League All-Star led the league in batting average, on-base percentage (.402) and slugging percentage (.631). Bozied can play both corner infield and outfield positions.
Left-hander Ryan Feierabend, 25, missed 2009 following Tommy John surgery. He pitched at three levels in the Mariners organization in '10. He went 5-8 with a 5.14 ERA in 25 games with Triple-A Tacoma, Double-A West Tennessee and Class A High Desert. He made 25 appearances for Seattle from 2006-08.
