Jarrod Dyson is back from the disabled list, and five more players have joined him in the Mariners clubhouse with active rosters having expanded in MLB on Friday.

The Mariners will be without relief pitcher David Phelps for the second time since acquiring him in July, however, as he has hit the disabled list again for a right elbow posterior impingement.
