Mariners' Sam Tuivailala: Rocky '19 debut
Tuivailala, who was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Monday, allowed two earned runs on three hits and a wild pitch over an inning in a loss to the Athletics on Tuesday.
The right-hander endured a rough landing in his first outing of the season, with Josh Phegley plating both of the runs against him with an eighth-inning single. On the brighter side, Tuivailala did find the strike zone on 12 of 14 pitches, and he'll look to continue ironing out the kinks inherent in such a long layoff during subsequent, likely low-leverage outings....

Mariners' Mac Williamson: Outrighted to Triple-A
Williamson was sent outright to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Williamson will remain in Seattle's organization after being designated for assignment by the Mariners and subsequently passing through waivers unclaimed. The outfielder is slashing just .156/.250/.258 with four home runs and two stolen bases in 144 big-league plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mitch Haniger: Cleared for some activities
Haniger (groin) has been cleared to resume some activity, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
After visiting with a doctor, Haniger has been cleared to begin playing catch and hitting off a tee. While this is a step in the right direction for the outfielder, he's apparently still dealing with some pain and remains without a timetable for his return. "He still has some issues and is feeling some pain on certain days, so we have to be careful how fast we go with him," manager Scott Servais said.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Daniel Vogelbach: Not in starting nine
Vogelbach is not starting Wednesday against Oakland, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Vogelbach has gone 2-for-12 so far in the second half. Tim Beckham will play first base, with Omar Narvaez serving as the designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Erik Swanson: Opening Wednesday
Swanson will work as the opener Wednesday against the A's.
Tommy Milone will pitch the bulk of the innings for Seattle in this contest, per Greg Johns of MLB.com. After failing as a big-league starter earlier in the season, Swanson has pitched three or fewer innings in each of his last nine appearances at Triple-A, but he has not had much success in that role either (6.98 ERA, 1.76 WHIP, 20 strikeouts in 19.1 innings)....

Mariners' Omar Narvaez: Goes deep twice in loss
Narvaez went 3-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in Tuesday's loss to Oakland.
For the second time in his last five games, Narvaez collected a pair of homers and drove in all of Seattle's runs in a loss to the Athletics. Both of those games were started by Daniel Mengden, who has now seen Narvaez hit two of the five home runs against him this season. Already in the midst of a breakout campaign, Narvaez has caught fire in July, hitting .367 (11-for-30) with five long balls and nine runs batted in. Overall, he is slashing .297/.368/.504 with 16 homers and 38 RBI this season.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Marco Gonzales: Surrenders six runs in defeat
Gonzales (10-8) took the loss against Oakland on Tuesday, tossing six innings and giving up six runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five.
Gonzales entered the game having given up three runs or less in six consecutive starts but couldn't tame Oakland's offense. The big blows against him came in the fifth inning, when back-to-back home runs by Matt Chapman and Matt Olson turned a close game into a four-run deficit. Despite the rough outing, Gonzales has been Seattle's most effective starter this season, leading the staff in innings (120.2), wins (10), ERA (4.48) and strikeouts (87). He'll have a home matchup with the Rangers on Monday in his next scheduled start.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Felix Hernandez: Bullpen session date set
Hernandez (lat) will throw a bullpen session Thursday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Earlier reports had indicated Hernandez would throw a full bullpen session at some point this week, and the date has now been cemented. The right-hander encouragingly went through a late-June/early-July throwing program without issues after having to pause his rehab assignment in mid-June. The upcoming bullpen session could be the litmus test to determine if Hernandez is ready to jump back into action in a minor-league setting.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Hunter Strickland: Throwing live batting practice
Strickland (lat) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Wednesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Strickland completed a bullpen session Saturday with no restrictions and may head to the minors for a rehab assignment if all goes well Wednesday. The 30-year-old has been sidelined since late March with the Grade 2 right lat strain and figures to require multiple outings in the minors given the length of his absence.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Erik Swanson: Returns to majors
Swanson was recalled by the Mariners on Tuesday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
In seven appearances (six starts) with the major-league club through early May, Swanson recorded an ERA of 8.04, but he had decent command with a 24:5 K:BB. Since then, he's only managed an ERA of 6.98 and a 20:12 K:BB with Triple-A Tacoma. While the right-hander was mostly used as a starter during his previous stint in Seattle, it seems likely that he will pitch primarily in relief for the time being. Outfielder Mac Williamson was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Kris Negron: Heads to big leagues
Negron's contract was selected from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.
Negron will receive a promotion after slashing .310/.396/.503 with 12 homers and 61 RBI over 82 games this season with the Rainiers. He figures to serve as a utility player while with the big-league club, having played a variety of positions in both the infield and outfield this year in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Mac Williamson: DFA'd by Seattle
Williamson was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Tuesday.
Williamson hasn't found his stroke at the dish since being called up June 5, hitting just .182 with three homers and 10 RBI over 25 games. He'll head to the waiver wire after getting booted from the 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Cal Raleigh: Gets call to Double-A
The Mariners promoted Raleigh on Monday from High-A Modesto to Double-A Arkansas, Modesto radio broadcaster Keaton Gillogly reports.
Raleigh punched his ticket to Arkansas after slugging nine home runs in his final 11 games in the California League. Over 82 games with Modesto, the backstop slashed .261/.336/.535 with 41 extra-base knocks (22 home runs, 19 doubles).... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Logan Gilbert: Moving up to Double-A
Gilbert was promoted from High-A Modesto to Double-A Arkansas on Monday, Modesto radio broadcaster Keaton Gillogly reports.
Gilbert will be joined in Arkansas by two of the Mariners' other more highly regarded prospects in right-hander Ljay Newsome and catcher Cal Raleigh. The 22-year-old Gilbert, who began the season in the South Atlantic League before making the jump to High-A, turned in a 1.73 ERA and 1.03 WHIP over his 12 starts with Modesto.... See More ...

Mariners' Ljay Newsome: Moving up to Double-A
Newsome was promoted from High-A Modesto to Double-A Arkansas on Monday, Modesto radio broadcaster Keaton Gillogly reports.
The Mariners sent a trio of well-regarded prospects up to Double-A, as Newsome will be joined in Arkansas by right-hander Logan Gilbert and catcher Cal Raleigh. Over 100.2 innings with Modesto, the 22-year-old Newsome posted a 3.89 ERA and a sterling 124:9 K:BB.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' David McKay: Sent back to Tacoma
The Mariners optioned McKay to Triple-A Tacoma after Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Angels, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The righty reliever appeared in the final two games of the weekend series at Angel Stadium of Anaheim, giving up three runs on one hit and five walks over two frames. He'll likely need to refine his control in the minors before getting another look with the big club.... See More ... See Less
