From the Mariners’ official Twitter feed comes word that the club has reached agreement on a minor league contract with right-handed reliever Manny Delcarmen.
The contract carries an invitation to spring training, where Delcarmen will attempt to win a job in the Mariners’ Opening Day bullpen.
The 28-year-old posted an underwhelming 4.70 ERA and 1.39 WHIP across 44 innings with the Red Sox last season before they shipped him off to Colorado in late August for minor league pitcher Chris Balcom-Miller. Delcarmen didn’t fare much better in the Rockies’ bullpen, allowing 12 hits and six earned runs in just 8.1 innings of work down the stretch.
He has enjoyed some success in the past and may be able to bounce back in the pitcher-friendly confines of Safeco Field, but all indications are that Delcarmen’s best years are far behind him.
