Dunn was reassigned to minor-league camp Monday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Dunn was invited to big-league camp, although he was never expected to make the Opening Day roster, considering he hasn't played above the Double-A level. He posted a 4.22 ERA and 1.37 WHIP with 105 strikeouts over 89.2 frames last season with Double-A Arkansas, where he figures to spend the majority of 2019.
Dunn received an invitation to major-league spring training Thursday, TJ Cotterill of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Last season in the Mets' organization, Dunn split time between High-A and Double-A, compiling a 3.59 ERA and a 10.4 K/9 between the two stops. The right-hander will now get a chance to show the Mariners coaching staff what he brings to the table nice and early, though he'll likely see much of his time in 2019 spent at either Double-A or Triple-A, depending on how well he adjusts to upper-level hitters.
Dunn was traded from the Mets to the Mariners on Monday along with Jay Bruce, Anthony Swarzak, Jarred Kelenic and Gerson Bautista in exchange for Edwin Diaz, Robinson Cano and cash considerations, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
Dunn projects as a decent major-league starter, with a fastball that can touch 97 mph and four above-average pitches but shaky command. He reached Double-A Binghamton last season, making 15 starts and posting a 4.22 ERA while striking out 27.7 percent of batters and walking 9.8 percent. He has a shot to reach the majors in 2019 but is most likely tracking towards a 2020 debut.
