Mariners minor league director Chris Gwynn confirmed that Chris Taylor suffered a slight crack in the pinky finger of his left hand near the knuckle. It isn’t thought to be an extremely serious injury, but serious enough to put Taylor on the disabled list, which is why Brady was called up.
Gwynn said that Taylor will get checked out again by doctors on May 20th. The hope he is out only a few weeks.
A few roster moves have been made today.
- Outfielder Dario Pizzano has been promoted to Class AA Jackson from Class A High Desert. Pizzano was hitting .275 with three homers and 21 RBI with the Mavs.
- Infield Patrick Brady has been promoted to Class AAA Tacoma.
- Nick Hill has been sent to Class AA Jackson from Tacoma.
- RHP Andrew Kittredge was sent to High Desert from Jackson.
