Mariners add right-hander Austin Voth to bullpen with $1.25 million. 1-year deal

SEATTLE (AP) — The Mariners added to their bullpen Wednesday by agreeing to a $1.25 million, one-year contract with right-hander Austin Voth.

Voth, 31, made 25 relief appearances last season for Baltimore after spending the majority of the 2022 season as a starter. Voth was 1-2 with a 5.19 ERA for the Orioles in 2023. In 2022, Voth started the season as a reliever for the Nationals before being traded to Baltimore. Following the trade, Voth pitched in 22 games with 17 starts and was 5-4 with a 3.04 ERA.

Voth missed more than two months last season with an elbow injury and ended the season pitching in Triple-A.

The signing was a homecoming for Voth, who grew up in the Seattle area and played three seasons in college at Washington before beginning his pro career as a fifth-round pick of the Nationals in 2013.
