Mariners standout rookie Julio Rodríguez is headed to the injured list with a right wrist injury, manager Scott Servais said on Sunday.
X-rays were negative after Rodríguez was hit by a pitch in the eighth inning of Saturday’s game, but continued swelling and weakness in Rodríguez’s wrist will prevent him from swinging a bat for at least five days.
Outfielder Dylan Moore is also headed to the IL after exiting Saturday’s game with back spasms. The club recalled outfielders Jarred Kelenic and Jack Larsen from Triple-A Tacoma and Double-A Arkansas, respectively, in corresponding moves.
Rodríguez, a front-runner for AL Rookie of the Year, has hit .271/.334/.482 with 18 homers and 57 RBIs in 96 games this season.
