CLEVELAND -- The Seattle Mariners placed right-handed reliever Rafael Soriano on the 15-day disabled list with shoulder fatigue and activated right-hander Sean Green from the DL before Saturday's game at Cleveland.

Soriano has not pitched since July 19. He is 1-1 with a 2.10 ERA and two saves in 42 appearances. His 57 strikeouts are sixth among AL relievers.

Rookie Mark Lowe, promoted from Double-A San Antonio on July 7, has excelled as a setup man for closer J.J. Putz since Soriano has been hurting.

Green had been on the DL since July with back spasms. He has no decisions and a 6.19 ERA in 16 innings with Seattle this season.
