CHICAGO (AP) _ The Seattle Mariners placed infielder Luis Ugueto on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a sprained left wrist and activated newly acquired Jose Offerman.
The move is retroactive to Thursday.
Ugueto hurt his wrist sliding into third base Wednesday in Seattle’s 5-4 win at Toronto.
Offerman, 33, was acquired Thursday from Boston for cash. He was designated for assignment by the Red Sox last week, and refused to report to Triple-A Pawtucket. Seattle and Cincinnati were both interested in Offerman.
