Seattle calls up RHPs Capps and Pryor
The Seattle Mariners restocked their bullpen by recalling
right-hander Stephen Pryor and selecting righty Carter Capps from
The Mariners made the moves on Tuesday before their game against
Toronto. Seattle was down two pitchers in the bullpen after trades
Monday night that sent Steve Delabar to Toronto and Brandon League
to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Additionally, the Mariners optioned outfielder Carlos Peguero to
Tacoma and added Eric Thames to the roster. Thames was acquired
from Toronto for Delabar.
Pryor was on a rehab stint with Tacoma after suffering a groin
strain with Seattle in June. Capps had made just on appearance with
Tacoma after spending most of the season at Double-A Jackson. Capps
struck out three of four batters he faced Monday night for Tacoma.
He had 19 saves and a 1.26 ERA with Jackson.
