The Seattle Mariners designated for assignment both right-hander Shawn Kelley and first baseman Mike Carp in recent days, as the club made room on the 40-man roster for lefty Joe Saunders and catcher Kelly Shoppach. The M's have 10 days from the dates of the transactions to trade, release or outright the player to the minors. Each may have some trade value, and Mike Carp is a name that has come up a few times in the front office of the Boston Red Sox, reports Nick Cafardo, via Twitter.
