Mariot was claimed off waivers by the Phillies on Monday. Mariot was designated for assignment by the Royals earlier in the month in order to clear room on the 40-man roster after spending the majority of the season with Triple-A Omaha. The righty has pitched just 28 innings in the big leagues in his career, but posted a 2.32 ERA and 72 strikeouts in 62 innings with Triple-A last season and could get a chance to work out of the Phillies' bullpen in 2016.
Mariot was designated for assignment on Friday. The Royals needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster, so Mariot was a casualty. The righty reliever will offer organizational bullpen depth going forward.
Royals relief pitcher Michael Mariot was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Mariot is expected to assume a low-leverage relief role with the Royals after accruing a 2.32 ERA and 72 strikeouts over 62 innings at Omaha. He's made only one appearance with the big club this season, but compiled a 6.48 ERA over 25 innings with Kansas City in 2014.
Royals reliever Michael Mariot has been optioned to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday. Mariot was recalled on Monday, and allowed a run over two innings on Tuesday. His demotion clears a spot on the 25-man roster for Danny Duffy, who returned from the disabled list on Wednesday.
The Royals have promoted Michael Mariot from Triple-A Omaha and sent fellow right-handed reliever Aaron Brooks to the same team, per the Kansas City Star. Brooks did nothing to earn his stay in his second appearance for the team Sunday. He allowed three runs on six hits in 3 1/3 innings against Boston. The 26-year-old Mariot fared no better in a stint with the Royals last season, compiling a 6.48 ERA in 17 appearances.
