Oliver Perez has been promoted to the major leagues by the Seattle Mariners. It marks the southpaw's first time at the level since being released by the Mets during spring training in 2011 with $12 million still remaining on his contract for that season.

Perez, 30, had been 2-2 with a 4.65 ERA in 22 relief appearances for Triple-A Tacoma. He allowed 33 hits and 19 walks in 31 innings with the Pacific Coast League club. Lefties are hitting .250 against Perez, with righties hitting .290.

After being released by the Mets, Perez spent the 2011 season in the Washington Nationals minor league system, with Double-A Harrisburg.
