MLB: Oakland Athletics at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Julio Rodríguez has returned healthy to the Seattle Mariners lineup, hitting lead off and DHing. The M’s announced his return as part of a quintet of moves Monday afternoon. The moves in total are as listed below:

  • Outfielder Julio Rodríguez is activated off the 10-day injured list.
  • Catcher Curt Casali is activated off the paternity list.
  • Infielder/outfielder Abraham Toro is optioned to Triple-A Tacoma (a full paper move as Tacoma’s season is complete).
  • Catcher Brian O’Keefe is optioned to Triple-A Tacoma.
  • Right-handed pitcher Phillips Váldez was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma after clearing waivers.

Congratulations to O’Keefe on getting his first career hit, and congratulations to Casali and his wife on the birth of their child. A banner weekend in Seattle baseball cedes to an important four game set with the Detroit Tigers, as hopefully Rodríguez can get in rhythm for the playoffs beginning this Friday.
