Most MLB teams have been fairly quiet this offseason, except for the Seattle Mariners.

The Mariners have been arguably baseball's most active team this winter, making several notable moves over the past few weeks. They made another one on Monday by signing a pitcher in free agency.

Seattle Mariners Free Agency

Seattle bolstered its bullpen by signing right-handed pitcher Trevor Gott to a one-year deal. The 30-year-old reliever went 3-4 with a 4.14 ERA and a career-best 1.03 WHIP in 45 appearances for the Milwaukee Brewers in 2022. The Brewers did not tender him a contract this offseason, however, making him a free agent.

Gott debuted in 2015 with the Los Angeles Angels and has pitched for the Washington Nationals and San Francisco Giants as well. Overall, he's gone 16-10 with a 4.80 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP in 185 2/3 career innings.

The Mariners are hopeful he can provide additional depth for a bullpen that posted the sixth-best ERA in baseball last year (3.33). Seattle's strong relief corps helped the team to 90 wins and a postseason appearance in 2022, but the team has its eyes set on a championship next year. The Mariners currently have the ninth-best World Series odds (+1600) for 2023 on FanDuel Sportsbook's MLB odds.
