Joe Beimel was shelled in Wednesday's 7-2 loss to the Rangers, allowing three home runs in the seventh inning while recording just one out.

Beimel replaced starter Mike Montgomery to open the seventh, which then unfolded as follows: Shin-Soo Choo hit-by-pitch, line out, two-run homer by Mitch Moreland, solo home run by Mike Napoli, solo home run by Elvis Andrus. Exit stage left. Beimel now holds a 4.78 ERA, but this back-to-back-to-back home run spree will likely be what he's remembered for when the season ends.

Mariners signed LHP Joe Beimel to a minor league contract.

Beimel had a 2.20 ERA over 56 appearances with the Mariners last season but was released by the Rangers last week after allowing 14 runs -- 11 earned -- over three spring innings.

Apr 2 - 7:30 PM

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York hears that the Mets are unlikely to pursue reliever Joe Beimel.

Beimel was given his release by the Rangers on Monday after an awful spring and the Mets have a lot of uncertainty with left-handed relievers in camp, but apparently they are content looking at other options. The 37-year-old southpaw had a 2.20 ERA and 25/14 K/BB ratio in45 innings across 56 appearances with the Mariners last season.

Rangers released LHP Joe Beimel.

The Rangers signed Beimel to a one-year, $1.5 million contract, but it wasn't guaranteed and he pitched himself out of a job this month. The 37-year-old had a 2.20 ERA over 56 appearances with the Mariners last season and shouldn't need much time to find another opportunity.

Rangers signed LHP Joe Beimel to a one-year, $1.5 million contract.

It's a major league deal, but Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News notes that it's not guaranteed. He can earn more through incentives. After not appearing the majors for two seasons, Beimel posted a 2.20 ERA over 56 appearances in 2014 for the Mariners (though he struck out only 25 across 45 innings). It's a solid late signing by the Rangers, as they needed left-handed relief help.
Mar 6 - 1:46 PM

In an interview with 710ESPN Seattle, Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik admitted talking to free agent southpaw Joe Beimel, but the two sides were unable to reach an agreement.

The 37-year-old hurler remains one of the top left-handed bullpen arms remaining on the market after compiling a 2.20 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 45 innings with the Mariners in 2014. Time is running out, but he should still be able to secure a major league deal before the start of spring training.

Chris Cotillo of reports that the market on Joe Beimel is "thawing."

He adds that three teams are currently interested in the lefty, "with more likely to jump in." The Mariners are known to be interest in bringing Beimel back, but it sounds like they could face some competition. Beimel held a 2.20 ERA in 45 innings for Seattle last season.
