Seattle Mariners Claim Pitcher Off Waivers


The Mariners have claimed Phillips Valdez off waivers from the Red Sox.

The Red Sox designated Valdez for assignment earlier this week, but he now has a new home in Seattle. In 13 games this season with the Red Sox, he sported a 0-1 record to go along with a 4.41 ERA. Now, he will be hoping for the chance to improve upon these numbers as a Mariner.

Valdez will be beginning his time with the Mariners organization in Triple-A. It will be intriguing to see if he can impress the club from here and get himself a call-up.
