The Mariners have denied Yoervis Medina permission to pitch in the Venezuelan Winter League.
It's a workload concern. Medina made 63 relief appearances this past season as a rookie at the major league level, posting a superb 2.91 ERA and 71 strikeouts in 68 innings. The 25-year-old right-hander is expected to serve as a setup man in 2014. Wed, Dec 4, 2013 06:01:00 PM

Yoervis Medina picked up the win in relief after pitching a scoreless 10th inning for the Mariners on Friday.

Oliver Perez struck out all three batters he faced in the ninth. Medina wasn't quite so dominant in the 10th, as he allowed a hit and struck out no one, but he recorded his third win. Perez and Medina are clearly Eric Wedge's preferred options out of the pen right now. They'll probably share save chances for the next couple of weeks.

Yoervis Medina pitched a perfect bottom of the 10th in a 3-2 game to earn the save as the Mariners edged the Angels on Tuesday.

Medina might have been in line for the save in the ninth anyway, given that Oliver Perez was used to pitch a scoreless seventh with the Mariners up 2-1. Tom Wilhelmsen let that lead get away in the eighth, but the Mariners reclaimed it in the 10th after Erick Aybar couldn't quite get a handle on Kendrys Morales' sharp liner over his head. Medina went on to retire Albert Pujols, Mark Trumbo and Howie Kendrick in order for the save. He's now a candidate for more saves, though he has the same sort of control troubles as Wilhelmsen. Even after tonight, he's walked 11 in his last 13 1/3 innings of work.

Mariners recalled RHP Yoervis Medina from Double-A Jackson.

Medina's stuff played up in a move to the pen this year, as he struck out 77 over 69 1/3 innings while posting a 3.25 ERA. He should move up to Triple-A in 2013.
