Garton was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Tuesday.

Garton split the 2017 season with Tampa Bay and Seattle, accumulating a 4.91 ERA and 16:6 K:BB over 22 innings as a reliever.

Garton fired a clean ninth inning in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Astros.
Garton needed just nine pitches to dispose of the potent trio of Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa and Josh Reddick. The 27-year-old right-hander has put together two perfect appearances with the Mariners thus far after a rough pair of stints with the Rays before being traded on Aug. 6. He'll serve as another bullpen option for manager Scott Servais for the balance of the regular season.

A timetable for his return should be available once more information becomes known regarding his injury.

Garton was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Garton will give the Rays an extra healthy arm out of the bullpen after Diego Moreno (shoulder) was moved to the 10-day disabled list.

Despite the disappointing outcome, with Cedeno expected to miss extended time, Garton should have plenty of opportunities to make up for the stumble.

Garton will be taking the roster spot vacated by the injured Xavier Cedeno.

He had an excellent start in the minors, as he racked up 10 strikeouts and allowed just one run on three hits over 6.2 innings.
