The Seattle Mariners claimed infielder Jack Mayfield off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday and also transferred infielder Shed Long Jr. to the 60-day injured list.

Mayfield, 30, was added to the 40-man roster and optioned to the alternate training site.

He was 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in two games with the Angels this season. He batted .170 with two homers and eight RBIs in 47 games with the Houston Astros from 2019-20, and has made starts at second base, third base and shortstop.

Long, 25, began on the season on the 10-day injured list. He had surgery in September to repair a stress fracture in his right shin.

Long batted .223 with eight homers and 24 RBIs in 76 games with the Mariners over the 2019 and 2020 campaigns.
