The Mariners released Magill on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Seattle will let Magill pursue opportunities with other organizations after he failed to secure a spot in the Opening Day bullpen while attending big-league camp as a non-roster invitee. The 31-year-old posted a 6.10 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over 11 relief appearances with Seattle in 2020 before getting shut down in mid-September with a shoulder injury that required surgery.

2015
2014
Magill began the 2019 season in Minnesota, posting a 4.45 ERA in 28 outings before being shipped to Seattle in a mid-season trade. The move was a positive one for the right-hander as he showed significant across-the-board improvement with the Mariners and eventually earned a share of the closer role. Magill has increased the average velocity on his fastball in each of his big-league seasons, hitting a high-mark at 95.2 mph in 2019. That led to the highest strikeout rate of his career (27.9%) but also contributed to plenty of hard contact (40.6 Hard%) and a subpar 1.2 HR/9. Still, Magill's 3.79 FIP and 66.5 LOB% suggest that he pitched better than his final 4.09 ERA indicates, and his effectiveness late in the season -- he converted five of seven save chances and notched a 3.46 ERA after Aug. 17 -- could make him a candidate for more save opportunities in 2020, albeit for a team that lost 94 games last year.
While Magill is 29 years old and has had a journeyman career, he showed improvement with his velocity to a 94.7 mph average fastball and a 8.9 K/9 last season. He could be a late bloomer who could find a role in the Minnesota bullpen. However, he'll need to win a job this spring.
Magill spent the majority of the season with Triple-A Louisville, striking out more than a batter per inning, but otherwise he was not overly impressive. Even still, the 27-year-old got his first taste of big league action in three years as a September callup for the rebuilding Reds. It was a small sample of just 4.1 innings in the majors, but Magill was all over the place with five walks and just one strikeout -- which has always been a problem throughout his career. He seems to have fully transitioned away from being a starter at this point, so as he hits the open market he'll likely be looked at as a depth option out of the bullpen. He may get a chance to win a big league roster spot in spring training after signing with the Padres in January, but more likely than not Magill will spend a significant portion of the season back in the minors.
The Dodgers seemed to be trending toward making Magill a full-time reliever, shifting him to the bullpen at Triple-A Albuquerque in 2014, but he was used as a starter in the Arizona Fall League. It seems likely that the Reds, whom acquired Magill for outfielder Chris Heisey in December, will move him back to the bullpen, though the team has yet to publicly annouce their plans for the 25-year-old. With max-effort velocity and a lesser emphasis on secondary pitches, perhaps he'll develop into a late-inning option down the road, but he's carried an elevated walk rate everywhere he's pitched for the past two seasons (6.3 BB/9 in 2014). Still with a minor league option remaining, Magill may need to try to straighten things out in the International League to begin 2015, but he figures to compete for a low-leverage role in spring training and could get an opportunity with the big club sooner rather than later.
Magill made his big league debut for the Dodgers in 2013, and the results were rather ugly - 27.2 innings, 6.51 ERA, 1.99 WHIP and 28:26 K:BB. The strikeouts are nice, but Magill needs to make rapid progress in Triple-A this year in order to get a second chance. If he is going to have a significant role with the Dodgers, it seems likely that Magill will have to be shifted into a bullpen role. Most likely, he'll stay stretched out with the hope of cutting back on the free passes as a starter at Triple-A to begin 2014.
