Mariners deal Noesi to Texas for PTBN or cash
Right-hander went 2-14 with 6.13 ERA in parts of three seasons in Seattle
SEATTLE -- Right-handed pitcher Hector Noesi was traded by the Mariners to the Rangers on Saturday for a player to be named or cash.
Noesi, 27, was designated for assignment by the Mariners on April 4, one day after giving up a walk-off home run to the A's Coco Crisp in the 12th inning in Oakland.
Noesi pitched in two games for Seattle this year, giving up two hits and three runs in one inning. Over the past three seasons with Seattle, he went 2-14 with a 6.13 ERA in 36 games, including 19 starts.
Noesi spent most of last season in Triple-A Tacoma, where he posted a 3-3 record with 5.83 ERA in 15 appearances (11 starts).
Noesi was acquired along with Jesus Montero by Seattle from the Yankees in exchange for Michael Pineda and Jose Campos on Jan. 23, 2012.
Noesi is out of Minor League options. To make room on their 40-man roster, the Rangers transferred infielder Jurickson Profar from the 15- day to the 60-day disabled list. Profar is sidelined by a torn muscle in his right shoulder.
