The Mariners added two more players to their September roster in first baseman Daniel Vogelbach and outfielder Jacob Hanneman ahead of Tuesday’s 7:10 game against Houston on 710 ESPN Seattle.

Seattle also announced that it has placed right-handed reliever Evan Scribner on waivers for the purpose of granting him his unconditional release.

Vogelbach, 24, is returning to the Mariners for the third time this season. Acquired last year in a trade from the Cubs that sent Mike Montgomery to Chicago, he won the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers’ Offensive Player of the Year award and was a Pacific Coast League All-Star this season. Vogelbach hit .290 with 17 home runs, 25 doubles, 65 runs scored, 83 RBIs and a .388 on-base percentage in 125 games for Tacoma this year.

Hanneman, 26, also came to Seattle from the Cubs, having been claimed off waivers Monday. His first appearance with the Mariners would be his MLB debut. In just 79 games for Triple-A Iowa, his 23 steals were only three behind the PCL lead. He hit .265 with five homers, 23 doubles, 40 runs scored and 26 RBIs with Iowa.

Scribner, 31, made eight appearances for Seattle earlier this year but spent most of this season on the disabled list with a flexor bundle strain in his right elbow. He recently started a rehab assignment in Arizona.

Here is Seattle’s lineup for Tuesday’s contest against the Astros, who will have Justin Verlander on the mound in his team debut.

Mariners (69-69)

Jean Segura, SS
Yonder Alonso, 1B
Robinson Cano, 2B

Kyle Seager, 3B
Mitch Haniger, RF
Ben Gamel, LF
Mike Zunino, C
