The 40-year-old right-hander made 743 career relief appearances with a 3.94 ERA for the Montreal Expos, Los Angeles Dodgers, Florida Marlins, Cleveland Indians, New York Mets, Milwaukee Brewers and Giants.

He was part of the Giants’ World Series championship teams in 2010 and 2012. Mota’s last season in the big leagues was 2012 when he had a 5.23 ERA in 20²⁄³ innings with the Giants.
