Mariners place Marte on 15-day DL, recall Taylor
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Seattle Mariners placed shortstop Ketel Marte on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left thumb and recalled infielder Chris Taylor from Triple-A Tacoma before Sunday's game in Cincinnati.
Taylor, 25, hit .294 with two home runs and 14 RBIs over 39 games, 33 at shortstop, with Tacoma. Taylor played for Seattle in both 2014 and 2015, hitting a combined .239 with 10 RBIs in 84 games.
