Mariners' Emilio Pagan: Called up to major leagues

Pagan was called up by the Mariners on Tuesday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

Pagan, a 10th-round pick in 2013, got off to a strong start with Triple-A Tacoma (3.27 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 18:7 K:BB) and will be rewarded with his first major-league opportunity. The right-hander has battled walk issues at the upper levels of the minors and will need to either reduce the free passes or compensate with the swing-and-miss to stick with the big club.
