The Seattle Mariners have placed right-handed pitcher David Phelps on the 10-day disabled list prior to Friday night’s game against the Oakland Athletics.

Additionally, the team announced its roster call-ups, which include right-handed pitchers Andrew Moore, Dan Altavilla, Shae Simmons, and Ryan Garton, as well as catcher Mike Marjama. Outfielder Jarrod Dyson has also been activated off the 1o-day DL. The team outrighted right-handed pitcher Christian Bergman to Triple-A Tacoma.

Phelps has been placed on the DL with right elbow impingement. The team acquired him from the Miami Marlins back on July 20, sending four minor leaguers back in exchange. He will also be under contract for the 2018 year.

Since arriving in Seattle, he has appeared in 10 games out of relief and owns a 3.12 ERA. For the season, that marks sits at 3.40 between the Mariners and Marlins.

Dyson last appeared in a game for the Mariners back on Aug. 16, having since been sidelined due to a right groin strain. In his first season with a new club, he has slugged a career-high five home runs, while batting .255 on the year. He has kept the stolen bases coming, swiping 28 bags, while receiving the highest total of at-bats in a single season of his career.

On his way back up to the Mariners is Moore, who has already made his MLB debut and six starts this season and owns a 1-3 record with a 6.34 ERA. The 23-year-old had never pitched in a game above A-ball prior to this season, but has quickly moved up the ranks.
