Mariners officially promote Mike Montgomery, option Guaipe to Tacoma

Jun 2, 2015, 2:21 PM | Updated: 2:23 pm

The Mariners have officially recalled left-handed pitcher Mike Montgomery from Triple-A Tacoma to start Tuesday’s 7:10 p.m. game against the New York Yankees.

Right-handed reliever Mayckol Guaipe has been optioned to Tacoma to make room for him on the roster, just a day after being promoted and making his MLB debut with Seattle.

Montgomery, 25, will make his Major League debut in his start tonight. He is 4-3 with a 3.74 ERA over nine starts (53 innings) with the Rainiers this season. He is taking the rotation spot of James Paxton, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list last Friday with a strained tendon in the middle finger of his left hand.

Guaipe, 24, threw 2 1/3 perfect innings Monday night against New York in relief of Felix Hernandez. He was called up in place of demoted shortstop Chris Taylor and to give the Mariners an extra reliever a day after the entire bullpen was used in a loss to the Cleveland Indians.

The Mariners also announced that lefty reliever Tyler Olson (knee) has been reinstated from the 15-day disabled list and optioned to Tacoma.

No starting pitcher.
