Seattle places starting pitcher Baek on 15-day DL

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, Wash. - The Seattle Mariners have placed starting pitcher Cha Seung Baek on the 15-day disabled list because of inflammation in his right, pitching shoulder.

Baek is 3-3 with a 5.37 ERA in 11 starts with the Mariners this season, but he allowed 19 earned runs and 33 hits in his last four starts. Last Saturday in Houston, Baek lasted just four innings, allowing six runs and nine hits.

Ryan Feierabend, who started Friday night's game against Cincinnati, will take Baek's spot in the rotation.

Left-handed reliever Ryan Rowland-Smith was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma to take Baek's roster spot.

This is Rowland-Smith's second stint with the Mariners. He was called up for four days last month, but did not appear in a game. Rowland-Smith is 3-4 with a 3.86 ERA in 24 appearances at Tacoma this season.
