    Jared Wells:

    Pitched the entire season at Triple-A Portland, going 3-7 with nine saves and a 5.24 ERA (54 ER/92.2 IP) in 47 games (10 starts)...struck out 87 compared to 48 walks...started 10 of his first 12 appearances before moving to the bullpen for the remainder of the season on 6/8...went 2-1 with nine saves and a 2.93 ERA (14 ER/43.0 IP) in 37 relief appearances...did not allow a home run in 43.0 relief innings...held left-handed hitters to a .269 batting average (42-for-156)...did not yield a run in his final 15 outings of the season (13.2 IP) from 8/6-9/3, converting seven consecutive save opportunities over that span.

    "I am grateful that a team has given me another chance," said Baek. "I just hope to do my best and help the team.

    "I have been a starter most of my career, but this year I've been used in long relief. I'm comfortable as a starter, but I have learned a lot about relieving. Wherever they need me, I'll pitch."

      --I think the main thing he learned about relieving is he is terrible at it. I think he could be a decent 5th starter for somebody if they stick him in the rotation and give him a real shot at it though. He was never going to get that chance with the Mariners, so this is no loss. Probably no gain either.
