Morin was invited to the Brewers' big-league camp Wednesday.
Morin finished last season with a 4.62 ERA and 1.11 WHIP over 50.2 innings pitched, the lowest marks since his rookie season in 2014. If the right-hander is able to impress the big-league coaching staff this spring, he is a candidate to provide depth to a Brewers bullpen that projects to include several new faces this season.
Morin refused an outright assignment to the minors Monday and became a free agent.
Morin finished the season with a playable 4.62 ERA despite striking out just 12.4 percent of opposing batters. He's unlikely to have a particularly busy market this offseason.
Morin (1-0) threw a pair of scoreless innings, walking one and allowing two hits, to earn the win Monday against the Pirates.
Morin was called on to keep the score tied in the 10th inning after Hector Neris blew the save in the ninth. He worked around one baserunner in the 10th and a pair in the 11th to keep the game scoreless before Sean Rodriguez's walkoff homer gave the Phillies the win. Morin's ERA now sits at a solid 3.12 in 40.1 innings with the Phillies and Twins despite a very low 13.1 percent strikeout rate.
The Phillies acquired Morin from the Twins on Saturday in exchange for cash considerations, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Morin has no minor-league options remaining, so he'll step into the big-league bullpen right away for Philadelphia after being designated for assignment by the Twins earlier this week. Over his 23 outings with Minnesota, the right-hander posted a 3.18 ERA and 0.97 WHIP but struck out only 11 batters across 22.2 innings. The Phillies opened up a spot for Morin on the 40-man roster by shifting Seranthony Dominguez (elbow) to the 60-day injured list.
Morin was designated for assignment by the Twins on Tuesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Morin owns a 3.18 ERA and 0.97 WHIP over 22.2 innings this season, but he has just 11 strikeouts and was rocked for four runs over one inning during his last appearance July 4 against Oakland. That slip-up evidently cost him his roster spot. He'll head to the waivers following this latest move.
Morin gave up two hits but recorded his first save of the season in an 8-7 victory against the Angels on Wednesday.
Blake Parker and Taylor Rogers had split the saves coming into the day, but Rogers pitched each of the last two days, and the Twins elected to throw Parker in the eighth. Morin has pitched well, posting a 1.80 ERA and 0.60 WHIP in five innings, but he's been in the majors for only two weeks, so it's premature to think he is going to supplant Parker and Rogers for save opportunities.
The Twins selected Morin's contract from Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Morin had a 2.25 ERA with one save and a 12:3 K:BB ration in 12 innings at Triple-A. He'll be used in middle relief. The journeyman has had strong strikeout rates at Triple-A the past two seasons, but hasn't been able to translate that improvement into success in the majors.
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.
Morin cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday.
Morin has a mediocre 4.60 ERA in 172 career major-league innings split between three organizations. He has a 3.24 ERA in 25 innings for Tacoma so far this season and has allowed one run in two big-league innings for the Mariners.
Morin was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Thursday.
Morin made just two appearances with the big club after having his contract purchased from Triple-A Tacoma on June 8, allowing one run while striking out three across two innings of relief. Given his prior big-league experience, Morin could draw some interest on waivers.
Morin was called up from Triple-A Tacoma on Friday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Morin will add a little extra depth to the Mariners' bullpen after the club placed Juan Nicasio (knee) and Dan Altavilla (elbow) on the 10-day DL prior to Friday's contest. Expect to see Morin utilized in low-leverage situations, as he is yet to pitch in the big leagues this season.
Morin was moved from the Mariners' spring training to minor-league camp Sunday.
Morin threw a combined 20 innings over 16 games between the Angels and Royals last season, during which he scraped together a lackluster 7.20 ERA and 1.70 WHIP. His subpar performance continued this spring, as he allowed seven runs over just 5.1 innings (six games).
Morin was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Shannon Drayer of MyNorthwest.com reports.
This move takes Morin off the 40-man roster. During the 2017 season, Morin shuffled between the Triple-A and major-league levels for the Angels before being designated for assignment and winding up with Kansas City for the last three weeks of the year. In total, he posted a 7.20 ERA over 16 big-league games and will be utilized as organizational depth for Seattle in 2018.
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.
