Seattle Mariners make key roster decisions ahead of Wednesday’s game

The Seattle Mariners made some key roster decisions Wednesday, placing outfielder Dominic Canzone on the 10-day injured list and, in a corresponding move, recalling Jonathan Clase from Tacoma.

According to Mariners PR, Canzone has officially been placed on the injured list due to a “strained right adductor muscle.”

Canzone was originally injured Sunday against the Toronto Blue Jays but had the day off. He was in the starting lineup Tuesday against the San Diego Padres and lasted five innings and scored a double. He was pulled after the top of the fifth inning because he “didn’t feel right” running the bases, according to a tweet from Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times.

Due to Canzone going on the injured list, he will miss the Mariners’ remaining five games before the All-Star break, as well as the first game of a three-game series against the Houston Astros on July 19.

Canzone has a .211 average with seven home runs and 14 RBIs this season.

Clase has been in Tacoma since June 2. He appeared in six games and three starts for Seattle from May 24 to June 2. He has appeared in 15 Major League games this season and has a .176 average with three RBIs and two steals. In 59 games with the Rainiers, he has a .274 average with 10 home runs and 34 RBIs.

This will be Clase’s third solo stint with the Mariners this year.

The Mariners scored eight runs in Tuesday’s win over the Padres and appear to be slowly regaining their offensive consistency and effectiveness.

Clase was not named in the starting lineup on Wednesday but is expected to make at least a few appearances while Canzone is on the injured list.
