The Mariners announced that left-hander Daniel Zamora was claimed off waivers from the Mets. Zamora was designated for assignment by New York on Friday, and now he will quickly head to a new team.

Originally a 40th-round pick for the Pirates in the 2015 draft, Zamora reached the majors and posted a 4.08 ERA over 17 2/3 innings with the Mets during the 2018 and '19 seasons, striking out 24 of his 77 batters faced. He didn’t make an appearance during the 2020 campaign, and Zamora has been hit hard in Triple-A action this season, with a whopping 20.25 ERA over four appearances and 6 2/3 innings for Triple-A Syracuse.

Despite those recent results, Zamora found a new home in short order. Like many teams this season, Seattle has been dealing with a number of pitching injuries, and it also put four players on the COVID list on Friday. The Mariners currently have Aaron Fletcher as the only left-handed option in their bullpen, so there appears to be an opportunity for Zamora to find a place back in the majors.
