Seattle calls up RHPs Capps and Pryor
Tuesday, July 31, 2012
SEATTLE (AP) -- The Seattle Mariners restocked their bullpen by recalling right-hander Stephen Pryor and selecting righty Carter Capps from Triple-A Tacoma.
The Mariners made the moves on Tuesday before their game against Toronto. Seattle was down two pitchers in the bullpen after trades Monday night that sent Steve Delabar to Toronto and Brandon League to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Additionally, the Mariners optioned outfielder Carlos Peguero to Tacoma and added Eric Thames to the roster. Thames was acquired from Toronto for Delabar.
Pryor was on a rehab stint with Tacoma after suffering a groin strain with Seattle in June. Capps had made just on appearance with Tacoma after spending most of the season at Double-A Jackson. Capps struck out three of four batters he faced Monday night for Tacoma. He had 19 saves and a 1.26 ERA with Jackson.
