Gott, Topa, and Speier sound like a law firm. If they were, I’d trust them, mainly because of the early results and Dipoto’s reliever track record. According to Mariners PR, "the trio of Mariners relievers Trevor Gott, Gabe Speier and Justin Topa, who were all acquired prior to the 2023 season, have only allowed two earned runs in 16.2 IP this season, while striking out 15 and walking three."

These newcomers will more than likely play critical roles in the Los Bomberos. Locking down lineups in the later innings, piling up the holds, and hopefully run-one wins that will get this team back in the playoffs. For now, it’s an essential story line to follow as Scott Servais starts to define roles in what is usually a strength of the team.
