CINCINNATI (AP) - The Seattle Mariners placed shortstop Ketel Marte on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left thumb and recalled infielder Chris Taylor from Triple-A Tacoma before Sunday’s game in Cincinnati.

Taylor, 25, hit .294 with two home runs and 14 RBIs over 39 games, 33 at shortstop, with Tacoma. Taylor played for Seattle in both 2014 and 2015, hitting a combined .239 with 10 RBIs in 84 games.

Marte, 22, left Saturday’s game at Cincinnati in the bottom of the fifth inning after spraining his left thumb sliding into second base on a stolen base in the top of the fifth inning. In 40 games this season, Marte is hitting .276 with one home run and 14 RBIs.
