Burke Heads From Seattle Back To San Diego

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - Utility infielder Chris Burke has been traded from the Mariners back to the Padres only a few weeks after Seattle acquired Burke from San Diego.

The trade was made official Tuesday, with Seattle receiving cash for returning Burke to the Padres. Burke was acquired by the Mariners on March 29 and was in Seattle's spring training camp as a non-roster invitee. He was sent to Triple-A Tacoma to begin the season.

San Diego wanted Burke back after rookie shortstop Everth Cabrera was placed on the 60-day disabled list with a fractured hamate bone in his left hand.
