Mariners recall pitcher Brandon Maurer, option Hector Noesi to Class-AAA

mariners 07272013


Good afternoon everyone.

I am pinch-hitting on Mariners duty today and catching up on things after covering Sounders practice earlier this morning.

I’ve posted the lineups above and there is some news to pass along: The Mariners have recalled pitcher Brandon Maurer from Class-AAA Tacoma and optioned pitcher Hector Noesi to the Rainers.

Maurer, 23, will be available today as he begins his second stint with the M’s this season. He had made the opening day roster, but went 2-7 in 10 starts with a 6.93 ERA. He was optioned to Tacoma on May 29 and went 3-4 with a 5.21 ERA in 10 starts.

“He’s going to go in the bullpen and probably be our long guy right now,” said interim manager Robby Thompson. “He’s been throwing the ball real well, so we’ll get him a little bit of a different scenario out there.”

Noesi, 26, is 0-1 with a 5.64 ERA in nine games over three stints in the majors this season.
