Weber agreed to a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Friday, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports. Weber made four MLB appearances in 2021 between the Mariners, Red Sox and Brewers, and he'll now join the Yankees heading into 2022. He spent most of last season at the Triple-A level and posted a 4.18 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 102:13 K:BB across 103.1 innings.
Weber elected free agency after being outrighted off the Mariners' 40-man roster Friday. Weber appeared in a total of four major-league games for three different organizations this season. As a 31-year-old with a career 5.28 ERA, he'll likely be looking for a minor-league deal this winter.
Weber was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday. Weber was called up by the Mariners on Sunday, and he allowed two runs on a hit and two walks while striking out one in three innings across two relief appearances with the major-league club. He'll now return to Triple-A Tacoma to make room for left-hander Tyler Anderson, who was acquired from the Pirates via trade Wednesday.
Weber was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday. Weber was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on July 16, and he'll make his way to the majors Sunday. The right-hander delivered a scoreless frame in his lone appearance for the Brewers before being DFA'd. He also covered 5.2 innings during an outing with the Red Sox and surrendered 11 runs, including four homers.
Weber was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Friday. The 30-year-old righty has tossed 6.2 innings at the big-league level this season, allowing 11 runs. He owns a career 5.27 ERA in parts of seven seasons in the big leagues. He'll report to Triple-A Tacoma for now.
