MINNEAPOLIS — The Seattle Mariners reinstated second baseman Dee Gordon from the injured list Tuesday. Gordon missed the previous 19 games with a bruised right wrist.

Gordon was hit by a pitch May 9 in New York. He was batting .281 with 16 runs, seven extra-base hits, 19 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 45 games before he was hurt. Rookie Shed Long took most of the turns at second base while Gordon was out.

The move was made before the Mariners opened a three-game game series at Minnesota on Tuesday. Right-handed reliever Matt Festa was sent to Class AAA Tacoma to make room for Gordon on the roster.
