Morin was reassigned to minor-league camp Monday. Morin compiled a respectable 4.22 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 10:2 K:BB through 10.2 innings this spring but was always a long shot to break camp with the big club. The right-hander could earn himself a promotion at some point if he impresses in the minors.
Morin threw a scoreless inning in Friday's spring training win over Baltimore. He's thrown seven scoreless innings with six strikeouts and one walk this spring. Morin is a long shot to make the major-league roster, but his strong spring could get him consideration for a promotion early in the spring if he stays hot at Triple-A.
Morin signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Tuesday that includes an invitation to spring training, Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500 reports. Morin was with the Mariners in 2018 and allowed three runs over four major-league innings. Most of his season was spent at Triple-A Tacoma, where the 27-year-old accumulated a 3.86 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 52:13 K:BB over 53.2 innings. A strong spring training could help Morin earn a bullpen role on the Opening Day roster, but he's more likely to serve as minor-league pitching depth to start the season.
Morin was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday. Morin has appeared in just three games for the Mariners this season and will continue his campaign back at the Triple-A level after being cast off the roster. In a corresponding move, the club recalled Daniel Vogelbach and John Andreoli.
Morin had his contract selected by the Mariners on Friday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Morin was designated for assignment and outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma in mid-June, where he has a 3.60 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with 36 strikeouts over 35 innings. The 27-year-old will likely take up a low-leverage role as the Mariners approach the All-Star break.
