Mariners Call Up Outfielder

With Mitch Haniger back on the injured list, the Seattle Mariners have called up Stuart Fairchild from Triple-A.

This has to be a very cool experience for Fairchild, as he is a Seattle native. Thus, he will have the opportunity to play for his hometown team. 

Fairchild was acquired by the Mariners last week from the Arizona Diamondbacks. The 26-year-old appeared in his first 12 major-league games with the Diamondbacks last season. In them, he had two hits in 15 at-bats. Overall, he wasn't particularly dominant, but he will be aiming to improve on his play with the Mariners from here.
