PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) The Seattle Mariners have rounded out their bullpen just before the start of the season by acquiring right-hander Nick Vincent from the San Diego Padres for a player to be named.
The Mariners announced the deal Wednesday morning. Vincent is expected to pitch in a minor-league game for Seattle on Thursday and with the Mariners either Friday or Saturday. Seattle now has a full 40-man roster.
Vincent, 29, appeared in 26 games last season with San Diego in four stints. He was 0-1 with a 2.35 ERA and did not allow a run in 13 appearances in September. In parts of four seasons with San Diego, Vincent was 9-6 with a 2.63 ERA in 161 total relief appearances.
