Jay Bruce and Anthony Swarzak have both already been traded elsewhere, but the Mariners have another player acquired in their blockbuster offseason deal with the Mets joining their major league roster.

Hard-throwing right-handed reliever Gerson Bautista has been activated from the injured list ahead of Wednesday’s 7:10 p.m. game against the Houston Astros on 710 ESPN Seattle. To make room for Bautista on the active roster, the Mariners have optioned Andrew Moore back to Double-A Arkansas a day after they brought him up for a spot start.

Bautista, 24, returns from a right pectoralis strain he suffered late in spring training. He is coming off a combined eight appearances with High-A Modesto and Triple-A Tacoma on a rehab assignment in which he allowed four earned runs and earned one save over 11 innings pitched. He made his MLB debut last season, pitching in five games for the Mets, allowing six earned runs over 4 1/3 innings.

Moore, 25, pitched 4 2/3 innings as the starter for the Mariners on Tuesday night, allowing four earned runs and taking a no-decision. A 2015 second-round draft pick of the M’s, he was traded to Tampa Bay last season but returned to Seattle from San Francisco on a waiver claim last month.
