The Seattle Mariners made some roster moves on Friday, recalling first baseman Justin Smoak from triple-A Tacoma and placing outfielder Michael Saunders on the 15-day disabled list. Smoak will be available for tonight’s game versus the Oakland A’s.

Smoak was hitting .284 with 3 home runs in 19 game with the Rainiers. He started the year with Seattle hitting just .208 with 7 home runs in 63 games before being placed on the disabled list on June 11th with a strained left quad.

Saunders left last night’s game versus the Twins in the middle of an at bat in the 8th inning with pain in his left side. An MRI on Friday confirmed a diagnosis of a strained left oblique muscle. Saunders was hitting .276 with 7 doubles, 3 triples and 6 home runs in 65 games with Seattle this season.
