Lefty reliever Olmos claimed from Marlins
Olmos, 24, went 3-3 with three saves and a 4.06 ERA in 51 appearances while splitting last season between Double-A Jacksonville and Triple-A New Orleans. Opponents hit .248 against the 6-foot-4 southpaw and he totaled 60 strikeouts and 30 walks in 77 2/3 innings.
He has one Minor League option remaining.
Olmos just finished up in the Arizona Fall League, where he went 1-1 with a 7.36 ERA in 11 innings over nine games with the Salt River Rafters.
Olmos pitched five games in the Majors with the Marlins in 2013, posting an 0-1 record and 7.20 ERA in five innings. He was drafted by the Marlins in the third round in 2008 out of Birmingham High School in Los Angeles and began his career as a starter. In seven Minor League seasons, he’s 15-37 with a 4.50 ERA in 179 games, including 71 starts.
The addition of Olmos puts the Mariners 40-man roster at 36, with more roster moves likely before Thursday’s 9 p.m. PT deadline to protect players from being exposed to the Rule 5 Draft.
