As expected Mariners have recalled Taylor Motter. Danny Espinosa placed on waivers for unconditional release.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) August 20, 2017
So the short-lived Mariners career of Danny Espinosa comes to an end and the other, not nearly as good Flow Bro is back in action. Giving Seager another day off to put some weight back post-illness seems like a good plan. Having Motter bat that high in the order is laughable, but hey, prove me wrong, Legolas.
Continue streaking, boys!
