SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners claimed left-handed pitcher Gabe Speier from waivers from Kansas City and acquired Boston right-handed pitcher Easton McGee for cash on Wednesday.
Seattle also waived left-hander pitcher Ryan Borucki and right-hander Casey Sadler, leaving its 40-man roster at 36.
The 27-year-old Speier made 17 appearances for the Royals last season and was 0-1 with a 2.33 ERA. He appeared in 41 games in parts of four seasons, all with Kansas City.
McGee, 24, spent his entire baseball career with the Tampa Bay organization after being selected in the fourth round by the Rays in 2016. He appeared in a major league game back in October when he pitched three innings and allowed an unearned run. McGee was designated for deployment by the Rays on October 3 and claimed by Boston two days later.
Borucki appeared in 21 games for Seattle last season but didn’t appear in any after early August due to left flexor muscle strain. He was 2-0 with a 4.26 ERA during his time with the Mariners. Borucki was acquired by Toronto in June.
Sadler missed all of last season with a labrum injury in his right shoulder. The 31-year-old appeared in 42 games for Seattle in 2021, conceding three earned runs in 40 1/3 innings.
