Four things to know: M’s business needs, injuries, Castillo and Kielnik
The Mariners traded mitigator Anthony Misevich to the Kansas City Royals for cash consideration on Monday, and veteran defensive tackle Travis Jankowski called for the New York Mets to cancel his waiver, shuffling their roster to make way for primary bowler Luis Castillo, who joined the team ahead of their Monday night series at Yankee Stadium. .
Jankowski will be given a defensive assist on the field with Julio Rodriguez currently on the injury list for 10 days due to a wrist injury. The 31-year-old producer Stony Brook was in his eighth MLB season and owns .167/ .286/ .167 with three steals in 43 games with the Mets this season. The Padres’ 2012 first-round pick wasn’t much of a pop (just nine players in 469 MLB games) but he has solid speed and defensive ability on the field.
Jankowski is expected to join M during the current series in New York. To make room for him in the 40-player roster, the Mariners named left-footed bowler Danny Young, 28, for the appointment.
The 27-year-old Misiewicz has made 17 appearances for M’s this season but has not played in the major tournaments since June 1.
With Castillo reporting on Monday, the Mariners chose left-footed bowler Brennan Bernardino for Triple-A Tacoma. The 30-year-old Bernardino was called up on Sunday and made his MLB debut, losing in Seattle’s 10-game loss to Houston.
Castillo will make his M debut in the Wednesday Series Final against Gerrit Cole and the Yankees.
The Mariners also announced Monday that defensive back Marcus Wilson, who was assigned the task on Saturday, has cleared the waivers and has been moved to Tacoma.

The Astros, who are top of Seattle in the MLS Western League, were reported to have made deals with Baltimore acrobat Trey Mancini (in The three-team deal also included Tampa Bay) And the Boston Mask Christian Vasquez. Then the Yankees, whose sailors were said to have been defeated in the lottery to get Castillo from the Cincinnati Reds, Pick up the hottest splash jugFrankie Montas of Auckland, along with diluent Lou Trevino for a group of potential clients.
