SEATTLE Wash. – Former Oregon State University star pitcher Andrew Moore has been called up to join the Seattle Mariners’ starting rotation.
Moore, who pitched for the Beavers from 2013-15, will replace star left-handed pitcher James Paxton, who was put on the 10-day disabled list Friday after suffering a strain left pectoral muscle during Thursday night’s 6-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels.
Moore, a Eugene native, was selected by the Mariners in the second round of the 2015 MLB Draft.
He made his major league debut in June with the Mariners. He was 1-3 with a 5.65 ERA in six starts with the Mariners before being sent back down to AAA-Tacoma earlier this summer.
The Mariners are currently tied for the second American League wild card playoff spot with the Tampa Bay Rays.
