Teams are interested in a pair of strong Mariners relievers.

The Seattle Mariners are actively discussing relief pitchers Tom Wilhelmsen and Oliver Perez with other teams, according to Fox Sports' Jon Morosi.

The Baltimore Orioles have expressed interest in Perez, per Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, but it's unclear which team is inquiring about Wilhelmsen.

Perez, 31, has resurrected his career in Seattle as a reliever by posting some of the best strikeout-to-walk ratios of his career. He owns a 2.35 ERA with 52 strikeouts and 17 walks in 38 ⅓ innings this season.

Wilhelmsen, 29, has been one of the Mariners' best relievers since joining the big club in 2011. His walk rate has risen dramatically this season, but he's managed to remain a slighty above-average pitcher because of his propensity to not allow hits; he's given up just 32 of them in 47 ⅓ innings of work.
