A Major League debut, another injury, and a DFA—all on a Tuesday

We’ve got roster moves, folks!

Another unfortunate and disappointing injury for Dee Gordon means that it’s time for Tim Lopes to make his Major League debut. Lopes will be the 6th player from the Mariners 2012 draft class to make the majors, although it appears it won’t be tonight as the team as already slotted Austin Nola at second base. Sure!

Per Tacoma Rainiers annoucer Mike Curto, Lopes has been enjoying hitting the PCL bouncy ball as of late:

Parker Markel’s long major league journey appears to be over for the time being, although I could see a team maybe taking a flyer on him (or maybe he’ll just end up back in Tacoma). If you’re a Athletic subscriber and haven’t read this feature on Markel, I highly recommend it.

Last, but not least, the Everett AquaSox announced Jose Moreno’s replacement at manager as former (and very recent) Mariners draft pick Louis Boyd.
