SEATTLE (AP) — Right-handed pitcher Austin Voth can earn $500,000 in performance bonuses for innings and starts as part of his $1.25 million, one-year contract with the Seattle Mariners.

The fun story of how Cal Raleigh heard about Haniger’s Mariners return

Voth would get $50,000 each for 40, 50, 60, 70 and 80 innings as part of the agreement announced Jan. 17 and $50,000 apiece for five, 10, 15, 20 and 25 starts.

The 31-year-old made 25 relief appearances last season for the Baltimore Orioles after spending the majority of the 2022 season as a starting pitcher. Voth was 1-2 with a 5.19 ERA for the Orioles in 2023. In 2022, Voth started the season as a reliever for the Washington Nationals before being traded to Baltimore. Following the trade, Voth pitched in 22 games with 17 starts and was 5-4 with a 3.04 ERA.

Voth missed more than two months last season with an elbow injury and ended the season pitching in Triple-A.

He grew up in the Seattle area, attending Kentwood High School and playing three seasons in college for the UW Huskies before beginning his pro career as a fifth-round pick of Washington in the 2013 MLB amateur draft.
