Seattle Mariners C Brandon Bantz has been recalled from Triple-A Tacoma. C Jesus Sucre (hand) has his hand in a soft cast; he's expected to miss a few days. To make room for Bantz, the Mariners optioned INF Carlos Triunfel to Tacoma and transferred OF Franklin Gutierrez to the 60-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: The M's were highly unlikely to summon Mike Zunino for such a trivial need. Bantz isn't worth a look in deep AL leagues unless Sucre's injury is more serious, and even then, it's not especially likely. Guti is already a month and a half into his DL stint, and his rehab assignment time has expired, but he isn't ready to return, so perhaps the M's found a way around that issue.
