The Mariners could get another look this week at right-hander Hector Noesi, but it will be as an opponent after trading him to Texas for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
So ends Noesi’s once-promising but often-disappointing tenure with the Mariners following his Jan. 23, 2012 arrival from the Yankees with then-catcher Jesus Montero for pitchers Michael Pineda and Joe Campos.
The Mariners open a four-game series Monday at Texas.
Noesi, 27, spent much of last season at Triple-A Tacoma but, out of options, he pitched his way back onto the big-league club in spring training as the bullpen’s long reliever.
It didn’t last.
Noesi gave up two runs in one inning on April 2 in closing out an 8-2 victory over the Angels in Anaheim. One day later, he served up a walk-off homer to Coco Crisp in the 12th inning of s 3-2 loss to Oakland.
The Mariners designated him for assignment on April 4.
Noesi was 2-14 with a 6.13 ERA while appearing in 36 games for the Mariners, including 19 starts, over parts of three seasons.
