Mota is 38 years old, so presumably it’s a one-year deal, but he was plenty useful in throwing 80 innings with a 3.81 ERA and 77/30 K/BB ratio.
His strikeout rate of 8.6 per nine innings was actually the highest mark of Mota’s 13-season career and he was particularly effective in the second half with a 3.13 ERA and 40 strikeouts in 37 innings.
He earned $925,000 in 2011 after being signed to a minor-league contract last December.
