Mariners activate RHP Vincent, recall INF Freeman

The Mariners Sunday made four roster moves, activating RHP Nick Vincent from the 15-day disabled list, recalling INF Mike Freeman from AAA Tacoma, and optioning INF Luis Sardinas and RHP Cody Martin back to the Rainiers. Vincent and Freeman were available Sunday afternoon when Seattle concluded a three-game series against the L.A. Angels at Safeco Field.

Vincent, 30, who made one rehab appearance with A Everett Friday, is 2-3 with one save and a 3.47 ERA in 35 games with Seattle this season. When Vincent went on the DL, he led the Mariners in appearances (35) and strikeouts by a reliever (43).

In parts of five MLB seasons with San Diego (2012-15) and Seattle (2016), Vincent is 11-9 with two saves and a 2.79 ERA. He was acquired from San Diego in exchange for a player to be named later March. 30.

Freeman, 29, hit .421 in four games with Tacoma after being claimed off waivers from Arizona Aug. 1. In eight games with the Diamondbacks this season, Freeman went 0-for-9 in 11 plate appearances. Freeman was selected in the 11th round of the 2010 draft out of Clemson University.

SardiƱas, 23, hit .181 with two home runs and five RBIs in 32 games during three stints with the Mariners this season. With Tacoma, he hit .250 in 42 games.

Martin, 26, is 1-2 with a 2.70 ERA in five relief appearances in two stints with Seattle, which claimed Martin off waivers from Oakland Oct. 29.

The Mariners and Angels wrap up their three-game set at 1:10- p.m. Sunday. LHP James Paxton (3-5, 3.93) will throw for Seattle opposite RHP Matt Shoemaker (6-11, 4.08).
