BC-BBA--Mariners Moves,1st Ld-Writethru
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Seattle Mariners placed second baseman Dee Gordon and third baseman Ryon Healy on the 10-day injured list and signed right-hander Anthony Bass to a one-year contract with a $950,000 salary while in the major leagues.
Gordon has a bruised right wrist and Healy lower back inflammation.
Seattle, 10-26 following a 13-2 start, made eight roster moves before Tuesday night’s 5-3 loss to Texas. The Mariners selected the contract of left-hander Tommy Milone from Triple-A Tacoma, and he started against the Rangers. Second baseman Shed Long was recalled from Tacoma and was in the starting lineup.
Third baseman Dylan Moore was activated from the 10-day injured list after recovering from a bruised right wrist. Right-handed reliever Parker Markel was optioned to Tacoma, and right-handed reliever Ryan Garton was designated for assignment.
“We had to get some players in here,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said.
Gordon is hitting .281 with 12 steals, while Healy is batting .237 with 16 doubles. Healy left Monday night’s game against Texas in the sixth inning.
Milone was 4-2 with a 3.83 ERA in eight starts and one relief appearance this year for Tacoma. The 32-year-old was signed as a free agent on Dec. 4 and is filling the rotation spot of Felix Hernandez, sidelined by a strained lat muscle.
Bass was released by Cincinnati on Monday at his request after going 1-1 at Triple-A Louisville with nine saves and a 2.21 ERA in 19 games. He would get a $175,000 while in the minors.
Long has played three games with the Mariners this year. Moore has a .229 batting average in 28 games this season with Seattle.
