SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle Mariners today claimed right-hander
Luis Munoz off waivers from the Pittsburgh Pirates and optioned him
to Double-A West Tennessee.
      The 26-year-old Munoz was designated for assignment by the
Pirates on Sunday.
      Munoz had a combined 4-7 record with a 6.03 ERA in 20 games ...
19 of them starts ... between Triple-A Indianapolis and Double-A
Altoona this season.
      He was signed by Pittsburgh as a non-drafted free agent in July
2000 and has spent his entire career in the Pirates organization.
      With the addition of Munoz, the Mariners now have 40 players on
their 40-man major league roster.
