ANAHEIM, Calif. — Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager Jack Zduriencik announced the following roster moves which will be in place for tonight’s game vs. the Los Angeles Angels:

  • Chris Taylor, INF, recalled from AAA Tacoma
  • Joe Beimel, LHP, selected from AAA Tacoma
  • Austin Jackson, OF, placed on the 15-day DL with right ankle sprain
  • Mike Kickham, LHP, designated for assignment

A corresponding move for Jackson going on the disabled list will be made before tonight’s game.

Taylor (#1) and Beimel (#97) will be in uniform for tonight’s game vs. the Angels.

Taylor, 24, was hitting .313 (25×80) with 12 runs, 5 doubles, 1 triple, 2 home runs and 6 RBI in 21 games with AAA Tacoma this season including a rehab assignment April 11-17. He began the season on the Major League disabled list with a fractured triquetrum bone in his right wrist (retroactive to March 27) and was activated and optioned to Tacoma on April 18.

Beimel, 38, was 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA (0 ER, 3.2 IP) with 5 strikeouts in 3 appearances with AAA Tacoma. He signed a minor league contract with Seattle on April 2 and began the season in extended spring training before joining the Rainiers. With the Mariners last season he was 3-1 with a 2.20 ERA (11 ER, 45.0 IP) in 56 appearances while limiting left-handed hitters to a .188 batting average and a .217 on-base percentage.

Jackson, 28, was injured trying to beat out an infield grounder in the top of the third inning in Houston yesterday and stepped on the foot of pitcher Roberto Hernandez, who was covering first base. He was hitting .242 (23×95) with 11 runs, 2 doubles, 2 home runs and 4 RBI in 25 games this season.

Kickham, 26, was 0-2 with a 7.29 ERA (17 ER, 21.0 IP) with 28 walks and 12 strikeouts in 5 starts for AAA Tacoma. He was acquired in a trade with Chicago (NL) in exchange for RHP Lars Huijer on Jan. 14, 2015.
