SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have placed right-hander Erasmo Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow flexor strain.

Seattle called up reliever Josh Kinney from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday to take his spot. To make space on the 40-man roster, the Mariners designated oft-injured catcher Adam Moore for assignment.

Ramirez felt tightness in his elbow during Saturday’s abbreviated start against the Boston Red Sox. He threw 2 2-3 innings before being replaced.

The Mariners are able to use a scheduled off day to skip Ramirez’s spot and keep the rest of the rotation on typical rest.

The 33-year-old Kinney was 1-0 with three saves and a 2.70 ERA in 27 appearances with Triple-A Tacoma. He’s available Sunday to a depleted Mariners bullpen that threw 8 1-3 innings Saturday in Seattle’s 3-2 win over Boston in 11 innings.
