Maurer tossed another scoreless inning for the Mariners on Saturday, lowering his ERA out of the bullpen this season to 0.50.
Earlier this season, Maurer was hammered by the opposition as a starter, posting a 7.52 ERA in seven starts. Since moving to the bullpen, he's been outstanding, compiling a 22:4 K:BB over 18 innings and limiting opposing hitters to a .156/.206/.203 line. If an injury were to befall closer Fernando Rodney, Maurer would be a very intriguing option as a potential replacement given his dominance with the role change.
