Kyle Seager Headshot

Seager (hip) is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Tigers, MyNorthwest.com's Shannon Drayer reports.

He was available as a pinch hitter Tuesday (although he was not used), and that likely remains the case as he sits for the third game in a row. Taylor Motter will start at third base and hit fifth.

Dovydas Neverauskas Headshot

Neverauskas was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday.

After being promoted to the big club earlier in the week, Neverauskas made his big-league debut Monday against the Cubs, covering two innings in relief and conceding one run on two hits. The right-hander, who works in the mid-to-high-90s, should be back with the Pirates before long, but he'll head back to the minors for the time being with the big club more in need of an extra infielder.
3:21 pm (EST)
Callum Booth  Headshot

Booth stopped all 25 shots he faced in QMJHL Saint John's 5-0 win over Chicoutimi in Game 3 of the QMJHL Semifinals on Tuesday.

Traded from Quebec to Saint John earlier in the season, Booth has been stellar since joining the QMJHL's best team in late December, and he has been even better in the playoffs. He is sporting a 1.55 GAA and .925 save percentage in 10 postseason contests for the Seadogs and his stock has risen steadily since the Hurricanes made him the 93rd overall pick in the 2015 draft. Booth signed his entry-level deal with Carolina in mid-March.
3:18 pm (EST)
George Springer Headshot

Springer (hamstring) is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Indians.

He appeared in Tuesday's game and went 0-for-1 in his only plate appearance, but will nonetheless be out of the lineup for a third straight game. It seems like Springer is close, and he will likely be available as a pinch hitter again, but Josh Reddick gets the start in center field and will lead off.
3:17 pm (EST)
Félix Hernández Headshot

Hernandez (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day DL on Wednesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

We're still awaiting word as to the full extent of the issue, but Hernandez will be forced to miss at least one start as a result of the shoulder injury. While the expectation is that the shoulder is structurally sound, with manager Scott Servais calling it "dead arm as much as anything," Hernandez's status and a potential return date will remain up in the air until the results of his MRI are disclosed.
3:15 pm (EST)
Mitch Haniger Headshot

Haniger (oblique) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Haniger was forced out of Tuesday's game with the strained right oblique muscle, and after reevaluating him a day later, the Mariners quickly determined the outfielder was dealing with more than a day-to-day situation. It's a tough break for Haniger, who had gotten off to a sizzling .338/.442/.600 start to the season in his first campaign with the Mariners. While Haniger is out, it's expected that Ben Gamel, who was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma in a corresponding move, will be in store for the bulk of the action in right field.
3:14 pm (EST)
José Altuve Headshot

Altuve (shoulder) is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Indians.

It was reported earlier that Altuve would likely be in the lineup, but he will get a day off after being involved in a collision with teammate Teoscar Hernandez in Tuesday's game. Marwin Gonzalez will start at second base and hit ninth in his place.
3:13 pm (EST)
Ben Gamel Headshot

Gamel was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

The outfield prospect just missed out on a roster spot out of spring training, but with Mitch Haniger (oblique) landing on the DL, there is finally room for Games in the big leagues. It's unclear how much playing time he'll get, but his mix of speed and power makes him an intriguing play when he is in the lineup.
3:11 pm (EST)
Kirby Yates Headshot

Yates was claimed off waivers by the Padres on Wednesday.

The Angels dropped Yates, a hard-throwing right-hander, from the 40-man roster after he served up two solo homers in his lone relief appearance with the team back on April 22, but the Padres saw enough potential in him to put in a claim. With Ryan Buchter, Brad Hand and Jose Torres having already established themselves as the top setup men to closer Brandon Maurer, it's not expected that Yates will be needed for much high-leverage work out of the bullpen.
3:07 pm (EST)
Dillon Overton Headshot

Overton was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

The Mariners needed more bullpen arms after sending Chris Heston and Evan Marshall to the minors, so Overton will re-emerge in the big leagues. His first stint in the majors this season was disastrous, so he'll look to be more effective this time around in a middle-relief role.
