CLEVELAND– The Cleveland Indians traded relief pitcher Shawn Armstrong to the Seattle Mariners, the team announced on Wednesday.

I would like to thank the @Indians for giving me the opportunity towards making my baseball dreams come true. Truly a class act organization and I am honored to have played for them! I am looking forward to my opportunity with the @Mariners and what our future holds!
