Mariners fill bullpen vacancies

The SportsXchange

With two bullpen vacancies to fill after making two trades Monday, the Seattle Mariners promoted a pair of right-handers from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.

Stephen Pryor, who was sent down earlier this month after recovering from a groin injury, was recalled, while Carter Capps had his contract purchased for his first major league stint.

They replace Brandon League, who was dealt to the Los Angeles Dodgers for two minor-leaguers, and Steve Delabar, who was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays for outfielder Eric Thames.

Pryor, 23, went 1-0 with a 1.69 ERA in six appearances for Seattle earlier this season. He hadn't allowed a run in 20 innings for Tacoma this year, earning three saves in 16 appearances.

Capps, who turns 22 next week, threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings for Tacoma on Monday in his Class AAA debut. He had gone 2-3 with 19 saves and a 1.26 ERA in 38 appearances for Class AA Jackson.

The Mariners also optioned outfielder Carlos Peguero to Tacoma, creating a roster spot for Thames.

Peguero took over as the regular right fielder last week when Seattle traded Ichiro Suzuki to the New York Yankees, but he performed poorly. He was 6-for-41 (.146) with one homer and three RBI in 12 games overall this season.
