    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Mar 27, 2014
    The Seattle Mariners filled a void at the back end of their rotation Thursday when they reached agreement with veteran right-hander Chris Young on a one-year major-league contract. The Mariners expect Young to slot into their rotation behind Felix Hernandez, Erasmo Ramirez and James Paxton, with Blake Beavan and Roenis Elias also in the mix for spots. He pitched well for the Washington Nationals this spring, with a 3.48 ERA in four outings, before accepting his release Tuesday when it became clear he would not be in the team's Opening Day rotation. He posted a 3.48 ERA in four Grapefruit League appearances with Washington this spring, allowing eight hits and four runs with four walks and nine strikeouts in 10 1/3 innings.
