Mariners claim Petit from Arizona

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE - The Seattle Mariners have claimed right-handed pitcher Yusmeiro Petit off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks.

General manager Jack Zduriencik announced Thursday the addition of the 24-year-old who pitched in 23 games for Arizona last season. He was 3-10 with a 5.82 ERA. In 17 starts, he was 3-9, with a 5.72 ERA. As a starter, he had 71 strikeouts in 83 1-3 innings.

Petit is 10-20 with a 5.57 ERA in 71 career appearances, 36 of them starts, for the Florida Marlins (2006) and Diamondbacks (2007-09). The New York Mets originally signed him as a non-drafted free agent in 2001. He was traded to the Marlins following the 2005 season as part of the Carlos Delgado trade.
