It was, instead, that he threw 45 pitches, which meant he'd be unavailable to pitch again for at least a few days.

The 31-year old pitcher was acquired by the Seattle Mariners on Friday from the Atlanta Braves for cash considerations.

Bergman hasn't pitched for the Mariners since June.

Manager Scott Servais lifted Pazos in favor of Marc Rzepczynski and he walked Simmons to load the bases before Kaleb Cowart grounded into a 6-4-3 double play. "He had some really good games for us last time, and sometimes he struggled".

Trout's bases-clearing hit off Seattle closer Edwin Diaz (2-5) came after the Mariners staged a three-run rally of their own in the eighth inning to tie the game at 3-all. For now, though, he'll join the bullpen as a long reliever.

The Mariners Friday recalled RHP Andrew Moore from AAA Tacoma to take the roster spot of LHP James Paxton, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left pectoral muscle.

Paxton (undisclosed) was removed from Thursday's outing against the Angels with an apparent injury and left the field with the Mariners' training staff, Shannon Drayer of MyNorthwest.com reports.

"They're trying to make as many guys down there available to us when we need them", he said. "We're going to see how it responds here and get back as soon as possible". Hisashi Iwakuma has been out since early May with shoulder troubles, Felix Hernandez is in his second stint on the disabled list and Paxton could be joining him.

Others in line for a summons include Dan Altavilla, Sam Gaviglio, Max Povse, Thyago Vieira and (after the required 10-day wait) Moore. Servais said he did not know who would fill Paxton's spot in the rotation on Tuesday.

"There were a couple walks, so I was assuming I'd take a strike", Trout said. I don't have the magic potion or formula. "Eventually we're going to have to try to settle in and keep some things going here".
