SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have placed left-handed starter James Paxton on the 10-day injured list with a forearm strain in his pitching arm.

Paxton left in the second inning of a game against the Chicago White Sox after just 24 pitches, grimacing after throwing a 92 mph fastball to Andrew Vaughn. 

Seattle also put starting left fielder Jake Fraley on the 10-day IL with a left hamstring strain he suffered while making a diving catch in the same game. 

Manager Scott Servais says both players underwent MRIs.

The Mariners called up Braden Bishop and Ljay Newsome to replace them.
