Like Warren, Taylor Guilbeau got an opportunity with the Mariners in 2019 and like Warren, Guilbeau flashed some good stuff in his opportunities. The 6’4″ lefty is a reverse split arm who uses a fastball that can touch 97 with a well-above-average changeup to challenge righties, and a good slider to attack lefties.
Also like Warren, Guilbeau has the potential to be a high-leverage arm if he can throw more quality strikes. His control is better than Warren’s, giving him the edge in our ranks. I see 3 true out pitches in Guilbeau and thanks to MLB’s new 3-batter minimum rule, Guilbeau has a great shot to make the club out of spring training.
