The Mariners have demoted 1B/OF José Marmolejos and RHP Bryan Shaw to the Tacoma alternate site, bringing their active roster down to 28 as required today.

While this shrinking was planned, the second cut in two weeks to the new normal of 26 active players will not take place. The roster rules were adjusted this week in the wake of multiple teams having outbreaks of COVID-19, as well as a slurry of injuries to pitchers in particular.
