Mariners activate Gray, add righty to struggling bullpen

CBSSports.com wire reports

CLEVELAND -- The Seattle Mariners have added right-hander Jeff Gray to their bullpen and optioned Dan Cortes to Triple-A Tacoma.

Seattle activated Gray on Saturday, when they took a six-game losing streak into their contest against the Indians.

The 29-year-old was claimed on waivers Friday from the Chicago White Sox, where he had a 2.70 ERA in six outings.

Seattle's bullpen is 3-8 with a 4.54 ERA without closer David Aardsma. He had hip surgery in January and recently strained his right elbow during a rehab assignment at Tacoma. Setup man Shawn Kelley had Tommy John surgery in September.

New closer Brandon League started 9 for 9 in save chances, but is 0-4 with three blown saves since last Sunday.

Cortes pitched one scoreless inning for Seattle after being called up April 25.
