Sean Spencer became the latest former Lancaster JetHawk to reach the major leagues when he was promoted to the Seattle Mariners on May 3, but his stay was brief.

The left-hander, a 40th-round pick in 1996, gave up four runs in 1 2/3 innings and was sent back to triple-A Tacoma last week with a 21.60 ERA.

Spencer was replaced by Brett Hinchliffe, another former JetHawk.
