Hart on disabled list, Paxton off DL for Mariners

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have placed designated hitter Corey Hart on the 15-day disabled list with a bruised right knee.

The move coincides with Seattle activating left-hander James Paxton from the 60-day DL. Paxton was slated to start against the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday night.

Hart hurt his knee earlier in the week against Cleveland but played against the Orioles on Friday night. He’s batting .203 with five homers in 58 games this year.

Paxton returns after spending time on the DL with a strained muscle in his left side following an appearance on April 8. He is 2-0 in two starts this season.

To make room on the 40-man roster, right-hander Blake Beavan was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma.
