Seattle Mariners Claim Starting Pitcher Off Waivers From Athletics

The Seattle Mariners have acquired right-handed pitcher Adam Oller from the Oakland Athletics through the waiver process.

Oller, aged 28, has faced challenges in his recent professional baseball career. Despite struggling with a high earned run average (ERA) of 7.09 in his previous big league experience with the Athletics, the Mariners see potential in Oller.

They believe that with their track record of success in developing under-the-radar pitching acquisitions, they can tap into his untapped potential.

Oller will now join the Mariners' Triple-A team, the Tacoma Rainiers, where he will continue his development and work towards becoming a solid asset for the organization.

Over his two seasons in the majors, the 28-year-old holds a 7.09 ERA, 1.72 WHIP, with 59 strikeouts across 94 innings and 28 appearances.

His minor-league career, however, has been a little better, accumulating a 4.36 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, with 486 strikeouts over 462.2 innings and 118 appearances. Photo Credit: Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports
