SEATTLE (AP) - Right-hander Blake Beavan has been optioned to Triple-A Tacoma by the Seattle Mariners, and the team recalled left-hander Lucas Luetge to add depth in the bullpen.

The Mariners made the roster moves Wednesday before playing Baltimore in the finale of their seven-game homestand.

Beavan earned a spot in the rotation out of spring training, but was moved to the bullpen when the team traded for Aaron Harang. Beavan had been used as a long reliever, but will start at Tacoma as the Mariners try to add additional options for the rotation.

Luetge was sent down because of the need for a fresh reliever after he pitched three innings of relief April 9. Luetge appeared in eight games with Tacoma, allowing three earned runs in 11 innings.
