Mariners recall Smoak from Tacoma after putting Saunders on disabled list

SEATTLE — First baseman Justin Smoak returned Friday to the Mariners after a 19-game stay at Triple-A Tacoma as the replacement for injured outfielder Michael Saunders. Smoak went immediately into the lineup for the series opener against Oakland at Safeco Field. He batted .284 for the Rainiers with three homers and 11 RBIs. The Mariners placed Saunders on the 15-day disabled list after a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam revealed a strained left oblique. He suffered the injury on a check swing in Thursday’s 4-2 loss to Minnesota. Saunders is batting .276 with six homers and 28 RBIs...

Friday's pregame notes and lineups vs. the A's -- Saunders to the DL, Smoak

  The Mariners made a roster move today. Michael Saunders was placed on the 15-day disabled with a strained left oblique. Justin Smoak has been recalled from Tacoma and is in the lineup tonight at first base. Corey Hart is out of the lineup for the day. He's been struggling since being recalled from disabled list. What's interesting is Hart is the player with the most at-bats against Samardzija. But he didn't have a ton of success against him either.

Hart brought up, Smoak optioned

A bit of news for the Mariners on America Day. The decisions have been made on Corey Hart and Justin Smoak, who were rehabbing in Tacoma following injuries. Hart, who had been nursing a strained left hamstring since May 18, is coming back up to the big club after hitting .297/.366/.514 in 41 plate appearances in Tacoma. He will be joining the team in Chicago and is in the lineup today, batting fourth. Obviously, the hope is that Hart performs far better than he did before his injury where he had a .209/.295/.353 line in 156 plate appearances. His performance over the next couple of weeks...
