SEATTLE – Another day, another second baseman for the Seattle Mariners.
The M’s announced they placed Dee Gordon on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday morning, retroactive to Monday. Gordon fractured his right big toe.
Seattle called up Dan Vogelbach from the Tacoma Rainers to take his place.
Gordon was himself a replacement second baseman, returning to the position he played for most of his career after Robinson Cano was suspended 80 games for violating MLB’s performance-enhancing drug policy.
The 25-year-old Vogelbach is having a strong season for the Rainiers, batting .301 with nine home runs, two doubles, 22 walks and only nine strikeouts.
