SEATTLE -- Right-hander Hector Noesi has been optioned by the Seattle Mariners to Triple-A Tacoma and the team recalled right-hander Blake Beavan.
Seattle made the roster moves to help out its bullpen on Thursday before opening a four-game series against the New York Yankees.
Noesi threw three innings of relief and got the loss in Seattle's 16-inning marathon loss to the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday. Beavan already was scheduled to throw in the minors on Thursday, so Seattle made the move to make sure it had a possible long reliever out of the bullpen.
Beavan started the season in the Seattle rotation but was optioned to Tacoma on May 1.
