SEATTLE – Milton Bradley rejoined the Seattle Mariners after two weeks of counseling for personal issues and anger.
His hiatus is over. His process of getting help to deal with what he called “stressors, unpleasant thoughts and feelings I’ve been having” is not.
“I don’t have all the answers. I’m not saying I’m cured,” Bradley said in the clubhouse Wednesday.
He made a brief statement then answered one question before a team spokesman ended the session to let Bradley “focus on baseball.”
“I’m committed to this process,” Bradley said. “It’s the best thing for me.”
The Mariners – his eighth team in 10 seasons – reinstated him from restricted list they had placed him on May 5.
“It’s early in the whole process. It will be ongoing, certainly,” Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said of Bradley’s battle with his emotions. “We’re not going to solve it overnight.”
Seattle optioned right-handed reliever Sean White to Triple-A Tacoma to make room on the roster for the 2008 All-Star with the Texas Rangers.
