SEATTLE, Wash. -- Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jack Zduriencik announced today that left-handed pitcher Lucas Luetge has been recalled from AAA Tacoma and left-handed pitcher James Paxton has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left latissimus dorsi muscle strain.

Luetge will be in uniform (#44) for tonight’s game vs. the Los Angeles Angels (7:10 pm) at Safeco Field.

Luetge, 27, began the season in Tacoma where he made just one appearance, allowing two runs in his lone inning on Sunday. He was 1-3 with a 4.86 ERA (20 ER, 37.0 IP) in 35 games over three stints with the Mariners last season. In two Major League seasons with Seattle, is 3-5 with a 4.40 ERA (38 ER, 77.2 IP) in 98 relief appearances.

Paxton, 25, left yesterday’s game in the sixth inning with a left latissimus dorsi muscle strain after allowing three runs in 5.0+ innings to get the win. He improved to 5-0 with a 1.75 ERA (7 ER, 36.0 IP) in the first 6 starts of his Major League career (debuted 9/7/13 vs. TB), the lowest ERA by a Mariners pitcher through the first 6 career starts (no relief appearances) in club history, bettering the 1.84 ERA by Felix Hernandez in 2005.
