Markel was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Wednesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Markel has a 10.57 ERA in 7.2 innings in the majors. He takes the place of Clay Holmes, who was placed on the injured list with a quad injury.
Markel was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Sunday.
The right-hander made a pair of appearances during his first stint with the Pirates, giving up one earned run on two hits while striking out four over three innings. Markel made his first five career appearances with the Mariners, giving up eight runs on 10 hits -- including three homers -- over 4.2 innings en route to being DFA'd.

Markel made five appearances for the Mariners prior to being designated for assignment, allowing nine runs (eight earned) in just 4.2 innings. Rookie Davis (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list to free up a roster spot for Markel.

Markel made five appearances for the Mariners this season, allowing nine runs (eight earned) in just 4.2 innings of work. His 2.60 ERA and 37.0 percent strikeout rate for Triple-A Tacoma could be enough for him to get claimed off waivers, however.
The Mariners optioned Markel to Triple-A Tacoma after Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Angels, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Markel joined the big club shortly before the All-Star break and made only one appearance in relief during his brief stint in Seattle. The Mariners will fill his spot in the bullpen and on the 25-man roster with Sam Tuivailala (Achilles), who was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Monday.
Markel was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

Markel was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.
The rookie reliever gave up six earned runs and two home runs in just 3.2 innings this season. This opens up a spot on the 25-man roster for Tuesday's starter, Tommy Milone.
The Mariners selected Markel's contract from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday.
The 6-foot-4 right-hander will get his first call to the big leagues at 28 years old after a slow climb through the minors that included a pit stop in independent ball in 2018. Markel earned the promotion through his lights-out work between Tacoma and Double-A Arkansas, where he combined to post a gaudy 0.52 ERA and 35:7 K:BB in 17.1 innings. If he continues to excel in the majors, Markel could climb up the pecking order quickly in a rather unsettled Seattle bullpen depth chart.
