The Seattle Mariners sent outfielder and Schenectady High School graduate Casper Wells back to Triple-A Tacoma today after activating catcher Miguel Olivo from the 15-day disabled list.
Olivo missed close to a month with a strained right groin muscle.
There was some speculation that Seattle might consider keeping Wells and releasing benched veteran Chone Figgins, but Figgins remained on the roster.
The 27-year-old Wells has played in 25 games this season for the Mariners, hitting .213 with a home run and six RBI. The home run came in front of his parents on Mother's Day at Yankee Stadium, off left-hander Andy Pettitte.
