Hector Noesi was designated for assignment by the Seattle Mariners on Friday (April 4). Called up in his place is Dominic Leone from Triple-A Tacoma according to a report from the team. This move is a direct result of what happened on Thursday night (April 3), when Noesi gave up a home run in the bottom of the 12th inning to lose a game to the Oakland Athletics. He hasn't looked very good in a while and because he was out of options, the Mariners had to designate him. They now have 10 days to decide what the next step will be with the 27-year-old pitcher.

In 66 MLB games, Noesi posted a 4-16 record with a 5.64 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. He was one of the players that came to the Mariners as part of the Michael Pineda trade, but he has simply not worked out. He finishes the 2014 season with three runs given up in just one inning of work for the team and now he is likely going to wind up with another franchise. The Mariners could trade him before the 10 days are up or he could accept an assignment back to the minor leagues. Outside of that, he would become a free agent again.

The Seattle Mariners are giving Leone a look after posted 16 saves for Class A Clinton and Double-A Jackson last year. He had a really good Spring Training with the team, posting a 1.80 ERA over nine games. He also went to school with shortstop Brad Miller at Clemson and was selected by the team in the 16th-round of the 2012 MLB Draft. Leone will immediately be available to pitch on Friday night for the team as they take on the Los Angeles Angels again.
