The Seattle Mariners bulked up their pitching depth by claiming right-hander Ryan Weber off waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday.

The team also designated infielder Wyatt Mathisen for assignment.

Weber, 30, is a veteran of 61 big-league games (16 starts) who has a 5.27 ERA across 164 innings, striking out 106 batters and walking 37.

He was claimed by Milwaukee from the Boston Red Sox on June 16 and will begin his second stint with the Mariners at Triple-A Tacoma.

Weber made one start for the Mariners on May 13, 2017, going 3 2/3 innings, allowing one earned run and three hits at Toronto.

In addition to Seattle, Boston and Milwaukee, his resume also includes stops at Atlanta (2015-16) and Tampa Bay (2018).

Mathisen, 27, hit .128 with a home run and six RBIs in 14 games at Tacoma.
