Morin was claimed off waivers by Seattle on Friday. Morin will head to his third different organization within the last calendar year after spending time with the Angels and Kansas City in 2017. During the course of the year, he only pitched in 16 games as a reliever, accumulating a 7.20 ERA and 16:5 K:BB. The 26-year-old will look to find a role in the Mariners' bullpen this spring.
Morin agreed to a one-year contract with the Royals on Friday, avoiding arbitration. Morin was claimed off waivers by the Royals in September last season after the Angels designated the right-hander for assignment, and he went on to appear in six games for his new club. Over the course of the year, he posted an ERA of 7.20 and a 1.70 WHIP over 20 big-league innings but missed some time with neck stiffness and spent time with the Angels' Triple-A affiliate as well. Moving forward, he will look to earn a role in Kansas City's bullpen, and try to recapture his form from 2016.
Morin was claimed off waivers by the Royals on Tuesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Morin will join the Royals' bullpen after being designated for assignment by the Angels last week. The 26-year-old struggled through 14.1 major-league innings this season, allowing 11 runs (6.91 ERA) on 21 hits, but he compiled a much more respectable 3.20 ERA in 39.1 frames with Triple-A Salt Lake.
Morin was designated for assignment Tuesday. Morin will be cast off the 40-man roster to open up space for Garrett Richards' activation from the DL and the contract selection of Deolis Guerra. The 26-year-old posted a 6.91 ERA over his 14.1 innings of relief with the Angels this season. He'll remain with Triple-A Salt Lake if he passes through waivers unclaimed.
Morin was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Morin rode the shuttle throughout the first half, making 10 appearances across five separate stints with the major-league team. He hasn't made an appearance with the Angels yet in the second half. The right-hander should be up for good in September, but it's hard to imagine he will be entrusted with meaningful innings.
