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.

Will Mike Leake be the next Mariners veteran sent out of town?
