Garver was a member of the Rangers team, who won their first World Series Championship in November. They defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks.

According to FanGraphs, Garver is expected to be the Mariners designated hitter this upcoming season. He will also backup projected starter Cal Raleigh behind the plate.

He is also the second projected starter in the starting lineup to be acquired this off-season. Luis Urias, who was acquired by the Mariners in a trade with the Boston Red Sox in November, is projected to be the team’s starting third baseman.

The 32-year-old Garver is joining his third MLB team with this move. He also spent five seasons with the Minnesota Twins to begin his career.
