Maui native and Kamehameha Schools graduate Kanekoa Texeira found out Wednesday that he has made the Seattle Mariner's opening day roster.

Texeira, a relief pitcher, has the lowest ERA among Mariners players listed on the active roster.  He has not allowed a run in his last six outings, a span of nine innings.

He is the third player from Maui currently in the big leagues.  Kurt Suzuki is a catcher for the Oakland A's and Shane Victorino is an outfielder for the Philadelphia Phillies.
