The Seattle Mariners placed Tom Murphy on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a dislocated left shoulder and recalled fellow catcher Cal Raleigh from Triple-A Tacoma.

Murphy departed with two outs in the fifth inning of Friday night’s 8-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays after attempting to tag out Randy Arozarena on a play at the plate. He was replaced by Luis Torrens.

Murphy, 31, is batting .303 with a .439 on-base percentage in 14 games this season.

He is a career .235 hitter with 40 homers and 109 RBIs in 267 games with the Colorado Rockies (2015-18) and Seattle.

Raleigh, 25, was optioned to Tacoma on April 28 after batting .083 (2 for 24) with a homer and an RBI in nine games with the Mariners.
