Jimerson DFA'd; Nortan Called Up

This has been tossed around a bit today, but it's all true. Time to round up all of this crap.
  • USSMariner first came out saying that Greg Nortan had been called up.
  • Jason Churchill of Prospect Insider came out after saying that Nortan was with the team, and Jimerson was on the way out. He also mentioned that Jimerson might pass through waivers, allowing the M's to send him to Tacoma.
  • Bob Condotta, filling in for Geoff Baker, comfirming that Nortan has come up, and Jimerson was DFA'd, meaning the M's have 10 days to make a decision on him. He says that he's not sure if he'll accept a demotion to AAA. I can't think of any teams that need a fourth or fifth outfielder. He could catch on somewhere I guess.
  • Now, the Mariners 'Official' Site comes out and confirm, confirms all of this, so Nortan is on the bench, and Jimerson is on his couch.
