Seattle recalls RHP Medina from Triple-A
Pitcher Yoervis Medina was recalled by the Seattle Mariners from
Triple-A Tacoma to take an open spot in the bullpen after
right-hander Stephen Pryor was placed on the 15-day disabled
Seattle made the move before Tuesday’s opener of a three-game
series against Detroit. Pryor was placed on the DL after leaving
Sunday’s game against Texas with a muscle tear in his right lat.
Manager Eric Wedge said Tuesday that it will likely be longer than
two weeks that Pryor is out.
Medina had allowed one earned run in six innings for Tacoma
early in the season. The 24-year-old impressed the Mariners staff
during spring training.
