Sam Tuivailala released by Mariners

Right-handed pitcher Samuel Tuivailal was released by the Seattle Mariners on Friday.

What It Means:

Tuivailal dealt with a shoulder issuer that kept him from appearing in the Cactus League and may have played a part in his surprise release from the team. Assuming his shoulder doesn't hold him back, the 27-year-old shouldn't have any issue finding a new team.

Tuivailal took part in 23 games for Seattle in 2019. He faced 94 batters and recorded a 2.35 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and 27 strikeouts.
