      Mariners' Joel Peralta: Likely taking over eighth-inning role

      Manager Scott Servais said Monday that Peralta "will probably be the guy we'll lean on" in the eighth inning with Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) on the DL, Bob Dutton the Tacoma News Tribune reports. It's unclear who much time Benoit will require on the disabled list due to right shoulder inflammation, but Peralta is slated to take on higher-leverage situations. With more hold opportunities imminent, Peralta will look to parlay his success this season -- two earned runs, eight strikeouts, and a .115 batting average against in eight innings -- to the new role.

      Mariners' Joel Peralta: Still has manager's confidence

      Peralta gave up game-tying home runs in the eighth inning of each of his last two appearances, but manager Scott Servais said he will continue to give the right-hander the ball in late-inning situations, the Seattle Times reports. While Servais was supportive, Peralta only pitched the eighth inning of both games because Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) was unavailable. Expect Peralta to be limited to seventh inning or earlier as long as Benoit is available. And Servais didn't give an open-ended endorsement, either. "We're going to need Peralta," Servais said. "We're going to give him the ball. But when you come in tie games, or one-run lead there late, you've got to be very fine. Mistakes in this league will get you."

      Mariners' Joel Peralta: Informed he'll make Opening Day roster

      The Mariners informed Peralta on Sunday that he'd make the club's Opening Day roster, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports. The 40-year-old isn't the dependable middle relief option he used to be with the Rays a few seasons ago, but his respectable track record was enough for the Mariners to overlook a rough spring (7.88 ERA, 1.63 WHIP over eight innings). With Steve Cishek and Joaquin Benoit in the fold to handle the closing and setup duties, respectively, don't expect Peralta to see much high-leverage work.

      Joel Peralta: Reaches agreement with Mariners

      Peralta and the Mariners have reached agreement on a minor league contract that includes an invitation to spring training. A moderately effective set-up man for the Rays from 2011 to 2014, the 39-year-old Peralta struggled to the tune of a 4.34 ERA over 29 innings with the Dodgers last season. He struggled with a slew of injuries and will now have to fight for a spot at the back of Seattle's bullpen.

      Joel Peralta: Becomes a free agent

      Peralta had his team option declined by the Dodgers on Friday, Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times reports. Peralta missed time with various injuries and struggled when he was healthy, posting a 4.34 ERA as his fastball velocity continued to drop below 90 mph (89.4 mph average). He'll be 40 years old by the start of the 2016 season, but he should be able to find a spot in the middle or back of a bullpen in free agency.
