Due to a strained right hamstring sustained on Tuesday night, the Seattle Mariners placed outfielder Taylor Trammell on the 10-day injured list on Wednesday.
Sam Haggerty, a utility player, was brought up from Triple-A Tacoma, and outfielder Marcus Wilson was added to the roster, while Kevin Padlo, an infielder, was sent down.
To make room for Wilson on the 40-man roster, catcher Tom Murphy was additionally moved to the 60-day injured list.

During last night’s game against the Baltimore Orioles’ fourth inning, Trammell, 24, was hurt while attempting to block a double play throw to first base. When sprinting out a ball to first for the Rainiers in April, Trammell suffered a comparable injury. He was sidelined by the injury for a month before returning to the Mariners in May.
The steps to activate Wilson and Haggerty are also preventative measures to support the team’s depth when punishments from the altercation against the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday are implemented. Three players have appealed their suspensions: center fielder Julio Rodriguez (two games), shortstop J.P. Crawford (five games), and left fielder Jesse Winker (seven games). However, if and when they are forced to miss games, the team won’t be able to replace their roster vacancies.
In Wednesday’s 9-3 victory over the Orioles, Wilson, 25, made his debut as a pinch-hitter. In the eighth inning, Wilson got a walk-off reliever from Jorge López of the Orioles.
Wilson, who was selected by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the second round of the 2014 draught, participated in 58 games for the Rainers this season. He is hitting. 207 (40×193), 34 walks, 82 strikeouts, 12 home runs, 11 doubles, two triples, 34 RBI, and 8 stolen bases. Wilson has been hitting over his previous 17 games with the Rainiers, going back to June 7. 250, 1.019 OPS, six doubles, five home runs, and 13 RBI.
28-year-old Haggerty has played in 13 games for the Mariners so far this year. By Wednesday, he had a.188 batting average, a double, an RBI, and a stolen base. He had a 3-for-3 performance against Baltimore, going 2-for-3 with two doubles, a single, and a stolen base. With six hits in 19 at-bats, that raised his season average to.316.
Padlo, 25, had six appearances for the Mariners and batted.200 with a double and three RBI. The 31-year-old Murphy will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery to fix a dislocated left shoulder.
