SEATTLE, Wash. - Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jerry Dipoto announced today that right-handed pitcher Max Povse has been outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma. Povse will receive an invite to Seattle's Major League Spring Training.

The Mariners have invited 27 players to Major League Spring Training.

Povse, 25 (turns 26 on Aug. 23), was designated for assignment on Jan. 27. He went 5-9 with a 5.46 ERA (59 ER, 97.1 IP) with 105 strikeouts and 47 walks in 18 starts between Double-A Arkansas and Triple-A Tacoma in 2018. Over 8 starts with the Rainiers, he averaged 11.05 strikeouts-per-9.0-innings (45 SO, 36.2 IP). In 10 starts with the Travelers, the 6-foot-8, 239-pound right-hander was 4-3 with a 3.41 ERA (23 ER, 60.2 IP) with 60 strikeouts and 19 walks. He was on the minor league DL, July 15-end of the season, with a right shoulder strain.

Povse was acquired by the Mariners from Atlanta along with Rob Whalen (rhp) for Alex Jackson (of) and a player to be named later on Nov. 28, 2016; Seattle sent Tyler Pike (lhp) to the Braves on Dec. 9, 2016 to complete the trade. Povse made his Major League debut with the Mariners in 2017, making 3 relief appearances and allowing 5 runs (3 earned runs) in 3.2 innings of work (7.36 ERA). The native of Raleigh, NC, was originally selected by Atlanta in the 3rd round of the 2014 MLB Draft and has spent 5 minor league seasons in the Braves (2014-16) and Mariners (2016-18) organizations.
