Seattle Mariners Release Left-Handed Pitcher

The Seattle Mariners have released injury-plagued left-hander Nick Margevicius.
Margevicius had a promising start to his career, making it to the San Diego Padres' Opening Day roster in 2019 despite not having pitched above High-A.

However, he struggled with a 6.79 ERA in his first MLB season. He improved in 2020 with a 4.57 ERA while playing for the Mariners, but suffered from thoracic outlet syndrome and underwent surgery in May 2021.

Margevicius struggled in a recent Cactus League appearance, prompting the Mariners to give other pitchers a chance in camp and release him.

Over his three seasons in the majors, the twenty-six-year-old has compiled a 6.12 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, with 90 strikeouts over 110.1 innings and 32 appearances.

He is a former seventh-round pick by the Padres in the 2017 MLB Draft.

He'll have the opportunity to explore other options now that he is a free agent. Photo Credit: David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports
