The Mariners added another veteran reliever to their big-league camp roster for spring training by signing right-hander Jean Machi to a minor-league deal.
Machi, 34, is 12-2 with a 3.47 ERA in 189 games over four seasons for San Francisco and Boston. His best season was 2014, when he was 7-1 for the Giants with a 2.58 ERA in 71 games.
He spent last season pitching in the minors, where he was a combined 4-3 with a 3.65 ERA in 48 games at Triple-A Iowa (Cubs) and Sacramento (Giants).
Never miss a local story.
Adding Machi swells the Mariners’ camp roster to 62 players, including 19 non-roster players. That list currently includes right-handed reliever Jonathan Aro and catcher Jesus Sucre, who were designated last week for assignment.
Here is the list of the Mariners’ 19 non-roster invites to big-league camp, which begins Feb. 14, when pitchers and catchers report to the club’s complex in Peoria, Ariz.:
Right-handed pitchers (9): Christian Bergman, Jean Machi, Cody Martin, Andrew Moore, Micah Owings, Max Povse, Peter Tago, Dylan Unsworth and Ryan Weber.
Left-handed pitcher (1): Dean Kiekhefer.
Switch-handed pitcher (1): Pat Venditte.
