Montero Recalled By Seattle From Triple-A Tacoma

Former top prospect Jesus Montero has been recalled by the Seattle Mariners, his first stint in the majors since a 50-game suspension after being connected to baseball's Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug investigation. Seattle made the roster move Thursday after outfielder Michael Saunders was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder injury. Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said Montero would be mostly used against left-handed pitchers and as a designated hitter, but is an option to play in the field at first base. Montero was the centerpiece of a trade before the 2012 season that sent pitcher Michael Pineda to New York and brought Montero to Seattle. He was a top prospect in the Yankees organization but has not matched that potential in Seattle. June 13, 2014

Seattle Activates Morrison, Places Smoak On DL

Logan Morrison has been activated after a lengthy stint on the disabled list and will start at first base for the Seattle Mariners. Seattle made the move with Morrison before Wednesday night's game and immediately placed him in the starting lineup. The Mariners put first baseman Justin Smoak on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left quadriceps, retroactive to June 10. Morrison has been out since April 14 when he left a game in Texas with a strained hamstring. Morrison spent the past 18 games on a rehab assignment at Triple-A Tacoma where he hit .308 with three homers. Smoak has been bothered by the quad for a couple of weeks. The switch-hitter says hitting isn't causing problems but running is where he is limited. Smoak is hitting .208. June 12, 2014
