40 in 40: Max Povse

The Mariners’ top pitching prospect ran into a developmental hiccup with an unsuccessful conversion to the bullpen, but is back on the right track. A switch to the ‘pen can often punch a prospect’s ticket to Major League success. Edwin Diaz was a converted starter who found himself closing games for the Mariners the very year the club decided to make him a reliever. The Astros’ multi...

The “Tall Wall” is headed to the ‘pen in Seattle; what can we expect from him there? This past week the Mariners called up Max Povse, the 6’8” righty, from AA-Arkansas. It was a bit of a surprising move, as I didn’t even realize Povse had come off the disabled list—which he did, on the 14th of this month, in time to make one start against Springfield before being called up. He wasn...

ARLINGTON, Tx.–For the second time in the last 3 days the Mariners went down to Double-A to add a long reliever. Zac Curtis was up and back Friday, Sunday morning Max Povse arrived. Povse, who was added to the 40-man roster by DFA’ing Dillon Overton, was a bit of a surprise as he missed 3 weeks with a hamstring strain and has only pitched in one game since returning from the DL....

Povse stands out on and off mound with height

Max Povse has stood out at Mariners camp from Day 1, for obvious reasons. The lanky right-hander measures 6-foot-8, which gives him a head up on much of the competition in terms of getting picked out of a crowd.
