SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have begun to bolster their bullpen by signing right-hander Trevor Gott to a one-year contract on Wednesday.
Gott appeared in 45 games with Milwaukee last season and went 3-4 with a 4.14 ERA. Gott had 44 strikeouts in 45 2/3 innings and kept opponents at a .204 batting average.
Gott’s signing helps fill a void created when Erik Swanson was traded to Toronto as part of the deal that brought thug Teoscar Hernández to Seattle earlier this month. Gott has also promoted San Francisco, Washington and the Los Angeles Angels.
Last season with the Brewers, Gott saw a significant drop in batting average against and walk percentage while increasing his strikeout percentage.
Seattle also made a front office announcement Wednesday with the promotion of Andy McKay to assistant general manager. McKay has been with the club since 2015 when he was hired as director of player development. McKay was promoted to Senior Director of Baseball Development in November 2021.
In his new role, McKay will oversee the development of baseball at all levels of the organization.
