Moore on DL, Bard promoted

The Mariners just placed catcher Adam Moore on the 15-day disabled list and called up left-handed hitting Josh Bard from Triple-A Tacoma.

Bard has joined the team in St. Petersburg for today’s series finale against the Rays and inserted into the starting lineup. The original lineup  had Rob Johnson catching but he has been bothered by a sore back.

To make room on the roster for Bard, who was not on the 40-man roster, left-handed pitcher Erik Bedard was transferred from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day, but it’s more of a paper move than anything.

Bedard has been on the DL since March 26 — 51 days ago. He would be eligible to come off the disabled list in nine days.

The new lineup remainder of the lineup:

1. Ichiro, RF
2. Chone Figgins, 2B
3. Franklin Gutierrez, CF
4. Jose Lopez, 3B
5. Ken Griffey Jr. DH
6. Casey Kotchman, 1b
7. Josh Wilson, SS
8. Josh Bard, C
9. Michael Saunders, LF
LHP Cliff Lee
