Roster move: Erasmo Ramirez recalled, Nick Franklin optioned to AAA

The Mariners made the expected roster move of calling up Erasmo Ramirez to start today in Atlanta. The corresponding roster move was slightly surprising – Nick Franklin was optioned to Class AAA Tacoma.

Franklin never found his offensive rhythm after being called up a second time this season. Some people can blame spotty playing time, but he never produced at the rate that they hoped. HeĀ was 4-for-31 (.129) with 15 strikeouts since his rejoining the Mariners from AAA Tacoma on May 20
