LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have landed two pitchers in a pair of trades in exchange for some of the international slot money the club had acquired in the hopes of landing Shohei Ohtani.
The Mariners got right-hander Shawn Armstrong from Cleveland on Wednesday and picked up minor-league lefty Anthony Misiewicz from Tampa Bay. Misiewicz was previously in the Mariners organization before being dealt to Tampa Bay last season.
Armstrong is the most likely to help Seattle immediately. The 27-year-old made 21 relief appearances for Cleveland last season and posted a 4.38 ERA in 24 2/3 innings. Armstrong also had brief stints with the Indians in the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
Misiewicz, 23, has not pitched above Double-A but was 11-6 with 141 strikeouts in 147 2/3 total innings pitching at the Single-A and Double-A levels last season for three teams.
