SEATTLE, Wash. -- Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager Jack Zduriencik announced today the following roster moves:
- 1B/DH Mike Carp recalled from rehab assignment at AAA Tacoma and activated from 15-day DL.
- OF Trayvon Robinson recalled from AAA Tacoma.
- 1B Justin Smoak optioned to AAA Tacoma (post-game 7/23).
The Mariners Major League 40-man roster remains full with these transactions. Seattle played with 24 players last night after trading OF Ichiro Suzuki to the New York Yankees for a pair of minor league right-handed pitchers, D.J. Mitchell and Danny Farquhar.
Carp, 25, returns from the disabled list after suffering from an inflamed right shoulder. He was also on the disabled list from March 29-May 1 with a sprained right shoulder suffered during the season opener March 28 vs. Oakland in Tokyo. In 32 games with the Mariners he is batting .157 (13x83) with 3 doubles, 4 home runs and 12 RBI. During his recent rehab with the Rainiers, Carp batted .220 (13x59) with 5 doubles, 1 home run and 8 RBI in 15 games.
Robinson, 24, is batting .265 (90x340) with 50 runs scored, 18 doubles, 2 triples, 9 home runs and 41 RBI in 83 games for the Rainiers this season. He has made starts at all three outfield positions (CF – 60, LF – 18, RF – 5), recording 6 outfield assists. Robinson made his Major League debut with the Mariners last season after being acquired from the Red Sox (via the Dodgers) in exchange for LHP Erik Bedard and RHP Josh Fields.
Smoak, 25, is batting .189 (65x344) with 13 home runs and 38 RBI in 90 games this season. He is scheduled to report to AAA Tacoma today.
