SEATTLE (AP) — The Mariners will be without left-hander James Paxton after he was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained muscle on the left side of his back.

Seattle announced the move Wednesday after an MRI confirmed the original diagnosis of a strained latissimus dorsi muscle.

Paxton left Tuesday night’s win over the Los Angeles Angels in the sixth inning after feeling a twinge in the muscle. Paxton got the win, retiring 14 straight batters during one stretch to improve to 2-0.

 

Seattle recalled left-hander Lucas Luetge from Triple-A Tacoma to take Paxton’s roster spot. Manager Lloyd McClendon said right-hander Chris Young will take Paxton’s scheduled turn in the rotation on Sunday against Oakland.
