SEATTLE (AP) The Toronto Blue Jays have kept up their postseason push by acquiring veteran reliever Mark Lowe from the Seattle Mariners for three left-handed pitchers.
The trade took place Friday ahead of baseball's deadline for trades without waivers. Seattle obtained Nick Wells and Jacob Brentz and Rob Rasmussen.
Lowe has had a bounce-back year with the Mariners after appearing in just 18 games during the 2013-14 seasons. Lowe pitched in 34 games for Seattle this season, developing into a consistent eighth-inning option. He had a 1.00 ERA with 47 strikeouts in 36 innings pitched. Lowe was a non-roster invite to Mariners' spring training and started the season in the minors before being called up in early May.
Lowe can become a free agent after the season.
