Left-hander Ryan Feierabend, who the Seattle Mariners saw through surgeries and development, has been invited to spring training as a non-roster invitee – by the Philadelphia Phillies.
A month ago, Feierabend was outrighted to Tacoma and declined the assignment, becoming a free agent. Now 25, he’ll get a look in Philadelphia.
He pitched at three levels in the Mariners organization last season, going a combined 5-8 with a 5.14 ERA in 25 games with Tacoma, West Tennessee and High Desert.
Feierabend made 25 appearances for Seattle from 2006-08, then missed the entire season in 2009 with Tommy John surgery. With the Mariners in parts of three seasons, Feierabend went 2-11 with a 7.22 ERA.
