Keep track of the Mariners' recent transactions and injury updates throughout the season.

ROSTER MOVES

June 14: C recalled from Triple-A Tacoma
Torrens is back after being sent down following a tough six weeks in the Majors, when he hit .178/.219/.300 and had some significant catching blunders that proved costly in multiple games. In 19 games for Tacoma, he hit .219/.318/.521 with six homers and 19 RBIs. His promotion brings the Mariners' catching staff to three, along with Tom Murphy and José Godoy. Torrens came up instead of No. 7 prospect Cal Raleigh, who has been on an offensive tear and caught the eyes of the big league club with his boisterous attitude.

June 14: RHP optioned to Triple-A Tacoma
Ramirez has been back and forth, but he did not appear in a game in his most recent big league stint. He has a 6.75 ERA in four innings over two outings in the Majors this season.

INJURY UPDATES

Day to day

RF (left knee contusion)
Expected return
: Day to day
Haniger and the Mariners avoided a big scare after the outfielder fouled a 93.3 mph fastball from Cleveland's Shane Bieber off the inside of his left knee on June 13. Haniger immediately hit the ground in what appeared to be immense pain, then had to be carried off the field. Mariners manager Scott Servais said he's optimistic that Haniger will avoid a stint on the injured list. (Last updated: June 14)

10-day IL

1B (left hip flexor strain)
Expected return:
Possibly within a week
White crushed a three-run homer from the DH spot in his first rehab assignment game for Tacoma, one day after he was a late scratch. Mariners manager Scott Servais didn't put a timeline on his return, but he did note that the first baseman would need to play multiple games to ensure that he's healthy -- and also, that his bat is ready to return to the Majors. White hurt his hip while diving for a ground ball in a game on May 13. (Last updated: June 12)

CF (right meniscus tear)
Expected return: Months
Lewis underwent a "minor" procedure by Dr. Neal ElAttrache to clean up the meniscus on June 9 in Los Angeles. Servais said he is "optimistic" that Lewis will play again this season, though it could be some time before he's back given that he'll need to heal then rehab. (Last updated: June 11)

RHP (right groin strain)
Expected return
: TBD
An MRI revealed that Swanson's strain is more than mild, meaning that he will be sidelined for an extended period well beyond the 10-day minimum for his IL stint. The issue surfaced before his most recent outing on May 28, but it became far more pronounced in that appearance, though he was able to pitch through it on adrenaline. Because he'll be down so long, it will be hard for the Mariners to keep his arm active, so it's likely he'll need to be stretched back out when he does recover. (Last updated: May 30)

60-day IL

UTIL (right shoulder inflammation)
Expected return: TBD
Haggerty was transferred to the 60-day IL on June 7 and has not taken part in any baseball activity. He’s played all three outfield positions and second base this season. (Last updated: June 8)

LHP (thoracic outlet syndrome)
Expected return:
TBD
Margevicius has not been involved in any baseball activity. The left-hander was moved to the 60-day IL on May 13. (Last updated: June 4)

RHP (right shoulder inflammation)
Expected return: July at the earliest
Sadler has been sidelined since April 30. He began lightly tossing, but experienced a setback and will be reevaluated in the coming days. (Last updated: June 4)

RHP  (right UCL)
Expected return
: 2022
Newsome suffered a UCL injury in his May 8 start against Texas and is likely out for the season. (Last updated: May 13)

LHP  (left forearm)
Expected return
: 2022
Paxton pitched all of 1 1/3 innings this season before being shut down with a left forearm strain that required season-ending surgery. (Last updated: April 28)

RHP  (Tommy John surgery)
Expected return
: 2022
The Mariners signed Giles on Feb. 19 to a deal that could reach three years and $19 million, knowing that the closer would be out for all of 2021 while recovering from elbow surgery. (Last updated: Feb. 19)
