Seattle Mariners Roster Transactions | Inside The Diamonds

The Seattle Mariners are 12-12 as they entered play today against division rivals the Texas Rangers. They have split the series so far, and look to win the rubber game today, before heading home for a three-game set against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Then they will host the Atlanta Braves for three games to start the new week. The Mariners have won six of their last eight games and will look to keep rolling to try and take over the AL West, they are currently a half game behind the Texas Rangers. Today they announced three roster moves before the game with the Rangers.

RHP – Gregory Santos

The Mariners transferred Santos from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day injured list with a Right latissimus dorsi strain. He has yet to pitch at all this season due to his injury. Last year he pitched in 60 games with the Chicago White Sox. He had two wins and two losses on the season over 66.1 innings of work. He allowed 25 earned runs, 22 free passes, and struck out 66. He finished last year with a 3.39 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP with the White Sox.

SS – J.P. Crawford

Crawford was placed on the 10-day injured list today retroactive to April, 24 with a Right oblique strain. He has played in 22 games so far this year with 13 runs scored, 17 hits, one double, one triple, two home runs, nine RBIs, 11 walks, and 18 strikeouts. He is slashing .198/.296/.302 with a .598 OPS.

SS – Leo Rivas

The Mariners selected the contract of Rivas today from the Tacoma Rainiers. Rivas has played in 18 games for Triple-A Tacoma. He has 12 runs scored, 16 hits, two doubles, two home runs, 11 RBIs, 11 walks, 13 strikeouts, and five stolen bases. He is slashing .308/.422/.462 with a .884 OPS this year with Tacoma.

Wrap Up:

Losing Crawford for any period of time is less than ideal for the Mariners as he is a veteran leader in the clubhouse and a solid defender for the team. Rivas should be interesting to watch as he has been hitting well for Tacoma and with a chance at some at-bats at the big league level will be interesting to watch. Santos moving to the 60-day injured list in disappointing cause he would be another solid option out of an already impressive bullpen, but we will have to wait until the second half of the year to see if he makes an impact.
