Seattle Mariners pitcher James Paxton was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Wednesday after leaving Tuesday's game against the Oakland Athletics when he took a line drive to the left arm from Jed Lowrie.
The Mariners confirmed the roster move, adding pitcher Christian Bergman was recalled in his place.
John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reported the news of Paxton's injury on Tuesday. Paxton was replaced by Felix Hernandez, who was recently moved to the bullpen.
Paxton, 29, came into Tuesday at 10-5 with a 3.63 ERA and 1.09 WHIP. He spent time on the disabled list last month with a back injury. This was his fourth start since returning.
Paxton recorded just one out and gave up two hits with an earned run before exiting. He tied a career high with his 24th start Tuesday.
