Powell notched a pinch-hit RBI single in his only at-bat in Tuesday's 9-6 loss to the Athletics.
It was the 24-year-old's first major-league hit after going 0-for-4 in his prior stint with the Mariners this season. Powell was slashing .288/.441/.356 with Triple-A Tacoma but has made very little hard contact, with his five doubles serving as his only extra-base hit over 94 plate appearances.
Powell was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.
With Robinson Cano (quadriceps) landing on the disabled list, the Mariners had a spot open for Powell to come back up to the majors. Playing time may be hard to come by in the short term, however, with Guillermo Heredia, Jarrod Dyson and Ben Games cemented in the outfield spots until Mitch Haniger (oblique) returns, although Powell could find his way into pinch running opportunities given his seven stolen bases with Triple-A this season.
Powell was optioned back to Triple-A Tacoma on Friday.
Powell heads back to Tacoma after appearing in just three games with the Mariners, going 0-for-4 in his only at-bats. He could see another chance with the big club should they need any outfield depth in the future. Infielder Mike Freeman was recalled to take his place.
Powell will start in left field and bat ninth in the order Sunday against the Indians, Bob Dutton of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
The Mariners recalled Powell from Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, and manager Scott Servais wasted little time in using the speedy outfielder, who came on to pinch run in Seattle's 4-3 loss later in the day. Powell will now get an opportunity to get his first MLB at-bats while starting Sunday in place of Jarrod Dyson, who will be rested for the matinee. It's expected that Dyson will continue to hold down a full-time role going forward, so Powell figures to be little more than a bench bat for as long as he remains with the big club.

Powell was added to take the roster spot of pitcher Evan Scribner (elbow), who was recently placed on the disabled list. Powell is slashing .261/.424/.326 and has converted 5-of-6 steal attempts through 14 games with Tacoma this season. With Mitch Haniger (oblique) on the DL and Nelson Cruz (hamstring) day-to-day, Powell should provide some needed depth in the outfield, though it's unclear how long the stint will last at this point.
