The Seattle Mariners have placed outfielder Mitch Haniger on the 10-day Injured List, the team announced Friday. Haniger suffered a ruptured testicle after hitting himself with a foul ball in Thursday’s game against the Houston Astros.

To take Haniger’s place on the active roster, Seattle selected right-handed pitcher Tayler Scott from Triple-A Tacoma. The 27-year-old Scott will be available for Friday’s series opener against the Los Angeles Angels. Scott is 3-2 with one save and a 5.88 ERA in 19 relief appearances with Triple-A Tacoma this year.

Scott was originally a fifth-round pick by the Chicago Cubs in 2011, and was acquired by the Mariners as a free agent in 2018. As a native of Johannesburg, South Africa, Scott also becomes the first player from an African nation to pitch in the majors.
