Lawton DFAd, Morse up
Lawton, who asked to be moved if he wasn’t going to get more playing time, got his wish, as the team designated him for assignment, which means he’s off the 40-man and the price of acquisition for another team may be as low as future considerations.
Mike Morse was called up. MLB.com notes “In Lawton’s place, the Mariners added versatility to their roster by recalling Mike Morse from Triple-A Tacoma. Morse can play the outfield and several infield positions.”
Morse has played some left really badly, and doesn’t play anywhere in the infield well. I don’t see that as versatility.
Also, Fruto down and Mateo’s off the DL.
