The Seattle Mariners activated outfielder Jake Fraley from the injured list in a series of moves ahead of Monday night’s game with the host Tampa Bay Rays.

Seattle also placed infielder/outfielder Shed Long (right shin stress reaction) on the 10-day injured list, designated outfielder Dillon Thomas for assignment and claimed outfielder Marcus Wilson off waivers from the Boston Red Sox. Wilson was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma.

Fraley, 26, returns after a four-game rehab assignment with Tacoma. He landed on the COVID-19 injured list on July 18.

Fraley is batting .237 with a .409 on-base percentage, seven homers, 23 RBIs and seven stolen bases in 40 games with the Mariners this season.

Long, 25, is batting .198 with four homers and 17 RBIs in 34 games this season.

Thomas, 28, made his MLB debut on June 9 and batted .111 (1-for-9) with two RBIs in four games for Seattle.

Wilson, 24, was a second-round pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2014 and has not yet played in the majors. He batted .242 with 10 homers, 30 RBIs and 10 steals in 64 games this season at Triple-A Worcester. The Red Sox designated him for assignment on Friday.
