We can now identify one of those clubs.
According to Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times, the Mariners have been “looking closely” at Kuo recently and could be moving toward an agreement.
Kuo surrendered 29 runs in 27 innings last season out of the Dodgers’ bullpen and has undergone five elbow surgeries in his career, but he posted a dominant 1.20 ERA and 73/18 K/BB ratio across 60 innings in 2010 and has held left-handed batters to a .205/.282/.318 batting line for his career. The 30-year-old southpaw might be worth the risk for Seattle and other clubs on a non-guaranteed minor league contract.
