Anthony Misiewicz (born November 1, 1994) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Seattle Mariners of Major League Baseball (MLB). He made his MLB debut in 2020.

Career[edit]

Amateur career[edit]

Misiewicz graduated from Anchor Bay High School in Fair Haven, Michigan. He attended Michigan State University, where he played college baseball for the Michigan State Spartans. In 2015, his junior year, he had a 5–4 win-loss record with a 3.80 earned run average (ERA) in 18 games (eight games started).[1] After the season, he briefly played collegiate summer baseball with the Cotuit Kettleers of the Cape Cod Baseball League.[2]

Seattle Mariners[edit]

The Seattle Mariners selected Misiewicz in the 18th round of the 2015 MLB draft.[3] He signed with the Mariners for a $70,000 signing bonus rather than returning to Michigan State for his senior year.[4]

After signing, Misiewicz made his professional debut with the Everett AquaSox, going 3–2 with a 2.14 ERA in 46+13 innings pitched. In 2016, he pitched for the Bakersfield Blaze, compiling a 7–10 record with a 4.79 ERA in 29 starts.[5] He began 2017 with Modesto Nuts before being promoted to the Arkansas Travelers.

Tampa Bay Rays[edit]

On August 6, 2017, the Mariners traded Misiewicz, Luis Rengifo, and a player to be named later to the Tampa Bay Rays for Mike Marjama and Ryan Garton.[6] He was assigned to the Montgomery Biscuits. In 28 total starts between Modesto, Arkansas, and Montgomery, he went 11–6 with a 4.51 ERA.

Second Stint with Mariners[edit]

After the season, the Mariners reacquired Misiewicz from the Rays for an international signing bonus slot.[7] In 2018, he returned to play for Arkansas, pitching to a 3–12 record and 5.51 ERA in 21 starts. He missed nearly a month during the season due to injury. Misiewicz began 2019 with Arkansas before being promoted to the Tacoma Rainers. Over 26 games (24 starts), he went 9–8 with a 4.59 ERA, striking out 125 over 131+13 innings.

On July 24, 2020, Misiewicz made his major league debut against the Houston Astros, giving up one run in one inning.[8] For the season, he was 0–2 with a 4.05 ERA.[9]
